Getting Started

Wraith is a "play by e-mail" (PBeM) game. You'll use your e-mail program to send orders and retrieve turn reports.

Basic usage

When you join a game, the system will send you a setup report. This report lists things like your nation's name, location, population, and assets.

Your first turn

Study the setup report.

Ask questions on the Discord server.

Create an orders file.

Send your orders file to the Wraith server.

Submitting orders

When you send in an orders file, the system will run several checks against it.

Any errors will be sent back to you.

You may make corrections to your orders and re-submit them as often as you need to.

Fetching turn reports

Turn reports are sent out automatically after processing is complete.

If for some reason you didn't receive your report, you can send an e-mail and the current report will be resent.
