A One-Stop Shop for all Your Play by Post Needs!
Whether you're just looking for a forum to host your game, or your needs are more elaborate, we offer the best suite of tools for play by post games out there.
Playing a game that has tactical grid-based combat? Use our persistent always-online combat map with customizable icons, hundreds of tiles and customizable backgrounds.
Looking for a way to ensure your players aren't rerolling their dice rolls over and over again? Check out our integrated dice rollers including a special shadowrun dice roller.
Integrated, Cheat-Proof Dice Roller
The dice roller uses standard bbcode, namely the [dice][/dice] tags. You make a roll, view the result when you're ready, and then edit your post to continue. Our posters never have issue with knowing when someone is done posting... it is almost always self evident. The dice roller can roll any combination of dice with any number of bonuses or penalties added to the roll.

Free On-Site Chat Rooms, Instant Messaging and Community Features
We offer free chat rooms for discussing your games or just hanging out as well as instant messaging for registered users. We also offer a robust community application for sharing photos, stories, or just socializing with other site users.
Free HUD-Style Tabs For Managing Your PbP Links
One of our best features is the HUD-like tab system we have on our chat bar at the bottom of the screen, viewable once registered and logged in. This feature allows you to add custom links to your user profile, which will be associated with the various tab icons on the chat bar. When clicked this will cause an overlay pop up window to appear on top of the current pbphud.com page you are viewing. This is not a separate window, it is part of the same window, overlayed on top of your existing screen. So while you're posting you can easily check and edit your map, combat tracker document/app, character sheet, DM notes or what-have-you. It's all in one place you!
We also support the use of some other, off-site tools:
