I've started a Pirates type campaign with four wonderful women, and even though we are all very excited about playing again, it appears that our schedules do not allow for frequent sessions. This is a tabletop game that demands fast pacing, and quick transitions from scene to scene.
What I would like to see is most of the shipboard activities and relationships played out online, so that we can play out "knitting circle" scenes (where characters chatter endlessly to one another about whether Bessie-Sue-Six-Fingers is going finally marry the prisoner down below decks or just torture him some more) without slowing down the pacing of a live-table-top session.
Is LJ a good venue for this sort of thing?
What pitfalls/problems should I be looking out for?
