Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

We're in the middle of summer, and the PotM competition remains hot.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for June 2016 is ... Spankucus!

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

I was a little wary going into this one. To be blunt, the jaunty halfling rogue with the alliterative name - much like the drunken dwarven berserker or the prissy elven mage - is one of those characters I've seen ... well, a lot. Here, though, Spankucus keeps the jaunty far away as the character, new to the adventuring lifestyle, gets a much closer and much more visceral look than he'd like at how violent and dangerous the world can be. Barnabus, rather than brushing off the horrific sight, almost loses his life because of it. It's a simple but cleverly written post about something that promises to be a cusp event in the character's life from this point on. Well done indeed.

The other nominations for June 2016 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for July 2016 is almost over. Be sure to... [Read More]

Thanks for your patience during maintenance this morning. I've been upgrading parts and tightening a lot of loose gears over the past couple of weeks, and today was no different. I test all changes as much as I can before deployment, but there's nothing like an onslaught of roleplayers and writers to really break things, so please be sure to let me know if you see anything odd.

Have fun!
