My question is how do you tie the game mechanics to what is being posted on the forum?
They are 2 difrent accounts.How you tell these accounts belong to the same person.Would quite nasty if someone decided to play as your character.

Beg pardon?

If you don't want someone to play as your character, don't give them your password.

All the play that matters happens here on the forum, with your forum account clearly visible.  The only thing that happens outside of it is the verification that you can cast the spells you specify in your RPs.

Let me rephrase.How can you tell someone is respecting the numbers on his character page and not just making stuff up?

You and I can't.  The GMs can.

Right now you can't. But when the engine is done, it will add a hashsum to a parsed posting and other player can verify that hashsum.
