I'll admit, pacing has been my only complaint over the nearly three years I've been playing, but I don't see a way to make play-by-post significantly faster.  There are days I only manage to post once, and the same for other players, and I'm flat-out amazed by what you manage as GM -- yet three years of player time has been a month or so of character time for Ardenas.

On the other hand, I searched for years trying to find a local gaming group, and now I'm in two -- and trying to decide if I'll have to quit one because it's eating too much of what used to be my little bit of spare time.  This game, at least, I can manage in 10-30 minutes once or twice a day, to read and post.  And I do get plenty of opportunity for RP, which I like, yet I get to play some combat from time to time, which I also like.

I think the underlying problem is that people coming in don't really understand how PbP games run.  I was pretty sure it would be slow, so I wasn't disappointed when it was, but if I'd been expecting (or able) to post half a dozen moves a day, I might have been disappointed.
