Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

February might be the shortest month of the year, but that didn't matter this time as our community turned in a record-breaking number of nominations for the Post of the Month contest.

The judging was difficult and the voting was close in a field this large. Please keep making our job this delightfully difficult every month!

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

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

The chess match (or other game of skill) is a mainstay of fantasy literature, but in this post kenneth takes things in a direction rarely seen. Kenneth's character Pyewacket isn't even part of the contest, but - knowing his companion is in over his head - takes a unique tack in finding a way to give his friend an advantage. It's cleverly and evocatively written and is an excellent example of a player thinking of an unusual - but wholly reasonable - way to involve a character in the action.

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

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

🍀 Go Green - Give Green! 🍀

That's right folks, it's that time of year again! With Saint Patrick's Day just around the corner on Friday, March 17th we are running our (almost) annual Go Green - Give Green Community Supporter drive, and here's how it works.

All you have to do is purchase or renew* your full year CS subscription, and then send a PM to me, Admin Chuck, telling me which deserving [tt=Non-CS]Please only gift to folks who are not already green.[/tt] member you wish to give 3 free months of Community Supporter subscription to. Also please let me know if you want your gift to be a secret or not.

That's it! It's just that simple! We will take care of the rest and make sure that the lucky recipient gets to try on their shiny new green username, and all the perks** that come along with it!

Also please note that the gift months will all be added at the same time - on St. Patrick's Day. So if you buy early you'll have to wait some time before the giftee becomes ... [Read More]

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

The new year started with a bang, as our judges had some difficult decisions to make in the first PotM contest of 2014.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for January 2014 is ... Atalla Wanderer!

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

Let's face it, the average D&D character leaves a lot of bodies behind. It's easy to see the guys on the other side of the fight as nothing but another minion to crush on the way to the Big Bad - an obstacle to overcome and nothing more. In this post, Atalla Wanderer does a good job of reminding us that the people on the other side of a fight have their reasons for being there, they have their own lives. And sometimes, maybe the heroes aren't as heroic as they think they are.

Plus, there's a xorn in this fight, which is always awesome.

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

The PotM contest for February is going on even as you read this. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of... [Read More]
