Since you're using Procmail (I gather from '.forwards'), this message,
Titled Calling GPG from Perl from Procmail from... points to as a solution saying that you
don't need to use the Pine functionality.

Well, it seems that your email program supports outgoing encrypion.
With the volume of keys you'll have (I expect it to be low, 20-50 per
game) I'd suggest using a keyring over a keyserver (overkill).
