So I've been toying with the idea of transplanting my PbP to its own website in order to facilitate being able to have location-based sub-forums in which each 'scene' is its own thread. This would make it a lot easier to manage things when the party splits up or if two players want to break-out into a 1 on 1 while the main story moves on. Accomplishing all of that in a single thread has often proved... tiring.
The problem is, there are a few essential features that Paizo's forums have that I've had no luck finding elsewhere, namely the alias/NPC functionality.
Do any of you know of any forum packages that can duplicate the alias functionality found here in either the core software or via a plugin? There's just no way I'd want players (or myself) to have to login/out every time they need to author a post as a different character. A package that allows moderators to post as another user (within limits) would work too.
Any help would be appreciated. :)
