 +    * If you need ideas for challenges, have a look at the [[#​questions]]
 +    * If you want to see anying that has been changed, edited, created or modified recently - click on the __**Recent Changes**__ button in the top right

 +  * [[Munchausen PBeM]] - the previous incarnation of the rules, originally intended for playing by email.
 +  * [[Space Opera]] Variant - used for the PBeM science fiction games
 +  * [[Doctor Who]] Variant - for use with a Doctor Who game - a variant of Space Opera where all the players are a regeneration of the Doctor.
 +
 +===== Editing/​Creating Rules =====
 +  * All entries must be readable. ​ If you write material with lots of typos and misspellings - someone will fix them.
 +  * **Don'​t enter material that isn't yours**. ​ It may be copyright, and will be deleted.
 +  * If a page is **Read Only** there is a reason - either the stories are finished, or the authors don't wish to have their stories edited on a public website. ​ Contact me for details if required.
 +  * I have a fair bit of space left, so feel free to post large documents. ​ I'll warn everyone if I start running out.
 +  * This main page is only editable by me.  Most other pages can be created or edited by anyone. ​ If you want to change this page, let me know ([[curufea@yahoo.com]])
