Anybody know some forums that run campaigns through posts or something? Just looking for something to do when i'm bored.

I recommend reading books. <3 They're cheap, durable, and very portable. Also, fun...as you get all the story you'd want roleplaying with nobody trying to insist "Hey, I'm Gandalf, not you!" "No, I'm more awesome!" Also, forum-based roleplaying is very slow and I've never seen nor heard of it being done well.

Just my two cents.

It happens on rpg.net all the time, and often runs for very long periods of time. I haven't done it there myself, but a lot of the members have good things to say about it. That said, you kind of need to already be a presence on the site to get accepted in to a play by post game. They fill up quickly and most people running them will take their pick of applicants rather than first-come-first-serve it.
This just goes to show: No matter how stupid and useless a weapon may look to you, some guy in Asia with too much time on his hands has figured out how to use it to kill five ninjas.

I used to belong to the SWC, Star Wars Club. They had a nice system set up, with players and GMs for all sorts of different factions (mainly Imperial and New Republic). It seems like that imploded since last I was there (about six/seven years ago), and now they just provide boards, but you have to find your own groups. It's www.swc.org. Or, at least it used to be.
