The Coming of the Zioth
Welcome to a world that has nineteen years left to live. In nineteen years, on the one thousand twentieth year of the Zioth, all five moons will leave the sky for a night, and the world will be destroyed and rebuilt. But who can believe such legends in a world at its prime? Everything is normal. The strange creatures of legend are nowhere to be seen, and magic? A story to put children to sleep. The Coming of the Zioth is my own PBeM, which has been running since 1996. It includes a huge number of game turns in prose form and lots of game world information. The Coming of the Zioth D&D Campaign.
The Wrath of the Talons
Five thousand years ago, the dragon Rokuchiankamphan was trapped beneath the earth before he could destroy the world. Now he is rising again, and no one is aware of this but the mysterious Sensei and the eight monks he has trained from birth for just this purpose. I played in this game from 2003-2005. There are multiple character journals, including a pretty complete one written by me. This also includes a few custom magic items and house rules. The Wrath of the Talons.
Letters from Jack
A game I played in for a bit in 2005, which is a good example of why not to play the party traitor. Letters from Jack.
Joe Wood is just an ordinary guy, working in an ordinary town to make a living. Yeah, he has a bit of a reputation, but don't you dare call him an adventurer! Heros_Backpack from the wizards.com boards wanted to see whether you could have fun playing a commoner, and here's what came of it. Commoner Campaign.
Campaigns Hosted Elsewhere
The Kingdom of Hurva
Young superheroes in training live together in a secret high school, and save the world in their spare time. A combination of cooperative storytelling and traditional RPG, this game is organized as a bunch of concurrent threads with their own role-playing or action encounters. There's also extensive information about the game world, including history, NPCs and photographs of the school. I play Bait. Claremont Acadamy.
This is organized in play-by-post form rather than written up as prose, but the game has been going on since 1991, and has close to a thousand chapters! The Adventurers.
World of Sulerin
A complete world, with a ton of character descriptions, spells and more. Also has journal entries from multiple characters. World of Sulerin.
