Outplay Begins!
Jul 21, 2014 - 6:24 AM - by RonarsCorruption


It's been a few harrowing weeks for most of the folks in Outplay, trying to make their applications perfect. Last week, we collected them all and weighed them... And today we revealed the players of Outplay 2014!

Congratulations to all who competed and made it through, but I'm not going to reveal what's happening here... you have to follow the competition to watch out.

Come on down to outplay to join us!

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

It's never easy judging these posts and picking just one as the winner. This month, it was even harder than usual.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for June 2014 is ... moozuba!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate moozuba for this exemplary work.

In this hobby, there's plenty of high fantasy. There's drama, fear, nobility, sacrifice. All great things, but sometimes we forget there's humor too. And - even though the entire campaign is meant to have a humorous streak - moozuba makes humor pay off in spades with this month's PotM winner. More than that, he shows remarkable creativity, taking two horrible dice rolls and using them to completely change the actions in the post. To use an old football term, he manages to make chicken salad out of chicken (rhymes with spit).

I'd write more, but any further description would only damage the humorous impact of the post. Go read it for yourself.

The other nominations for June 2014 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for July is going on even as you read this. ... [Read More]

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

It's never easy judging these posts and picking just one as the winner. This month, it was even harder than usual.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for May 2014 is ... Captain Devonin!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate Captain Devonin for this exemplary work.

There's not a great deal of action in this post - we just read about Faye's preparations to help attack a bandit camp. The quality of this post is in its language, in the subtle and not-so-subtle hints it gives us, the revelations into the complexities of the character. Any character might do what Faye does here - but it's the post and the glimpses of the personality in Faye herself that make her a character we want to know better.

The other nominations for May 2014 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for June is going on even as you read this. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of June.
Outplay 2014
Jun 23, 2014 - 12:40 AM - by TeufelHeunden

Do you think you have what it takes to design a character and take them to the pinnacle of glory? Are you a literary genius, a combat monster, and just a little bit of a munchkin? Do you think you're just an awesome guy, and want a site-badge to show everyone?

Then Outplay is for you!

Today marks the beginning of the fourth year of Outplay, where players compete amongst one another to determine exactly who is the best of the best. And not just the best of one system, either - this year, we have divisions for D&D 3.5e, 4e, and Pathfinder, too. Even a way to petition for another system entirely! It's a multi-system brawl!

Come join in as a competitor, or just watch them duke it out.
