I'm planning to use WordPress to maintain and publish a role-playing system. Is there a best practice for managing content in WordPress that isn't time sensitive?

Should I use pages and make short notification posts when those are updated? I know posts and pages are stored the same, it's handling the creation and presentation that's giving me trouble. I want updates to be obvious, but without republishing entire sections of content.

I'm having a really difficult time understanding what you want to do, can you broaden the scope of the question and explain what it is that you're trying to do with the site? – mor7ifer Feb 19 '12 at 19:07

I would recommend using Custom Post Types (and, likely, custom taxonomies).

Some intrepid developers did just that, for a proof-of-concept game built on WordPress, and presented it at WordCamp Toronto 2011.
