Universalis system
I have had the Universalis system for awhile, it is honestly a little bit out there and experimental.  However, I just picked it up and looked it up again and it got me interested.  Has anyone ever tried using it on RPOL?  I feel like it would either be brilliant (a single player able to narrate a good chunk of a scene in one post), or would be impossible (since player interruption would be difficult given the asynchronous nature of posting here).  Or would it essentially be a free-form RP with an unnecessary set of rules?

For reference, I was considering a Greek Mythic Heroes game, along the lines of The Illiad, the Odyssey, or the Aenead.

Universalis system
Player attrition was worse than usual, as people would drop out when the game took a direction that didn't interest them, and if one person is dictating the premise and setting in advance it truthfully ceases to be Universalis.
