RPGWithMe

A reader pointed out a site to me which offers play-by-post roleplaying on a virtual tabletop: RPGWithMe. The site looks very good, but apparently hasn't got critical mass in users yet to get enough campaigns going. RPGWithMe already supports different pen & paper systems like Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition or Pathfinder. And they have a Kickstarter campaign running to enable more systems.

As my D&D 4E campaign, which I DM, is only playing twice a month, I'd be quite interested in joining a play-by-post game as a player somewhere. So I do hope that RPGWithMe is taking off and offering me that.

Comments:
It looks interesting, but the need of paid third party character creation tools for character input is very restricting.
 
They acknowledge this problem in the kickstarter page.
They want to create a character builder of their own. So you don't need paid third party character creation tools.
So we need to wait a bit for that,
but I still think it's a cool project.

Is making a character builder for D&D 4E in conflict with WotC licensing (GSL) ?
 
I used to play-by-post at dndonlinegames a few years back, but was done with the site by the time 4.0 rolled around. I suppose having a site like that integrated with a virtual tabletop would be a HUGE step up for actual 4.0 campaigns. Sounds cool, I hope they grow.
