2015 Post of the Year Winner Announced!
Feb 09, 2016 - 1:26 AM - by Nimlos
For those of us judging the Post of the Month and Post of the Year contests, the end of one year and the beginning of another means we're faced with the fiendishly difficult but immensely enjoyable task of deciding which one stood out above all the others, of choosing which single post represented the best work done on the site for all of 2015.

Selecting the best from the best is never easy, but finally a consensus was reached.

Please join the judges in congratulating our Post of the Year winner for 2015 - Grozug!

You can read Grozug's winning post here.

Two years in a row now the PotY winner was the September PotM winner. Hmmm.

Here is what we wrote when Grozug won for September: Sometimes, we have a PotM winner that's a light, funny, carefree post. This isn't one of those times. Grozug captures the unspeakable loss Adil suffers with a deftly written post. From the character's hopeful homecoming to the terrible reality of discovering what has happened, the language and emotion are raw, visceral and very real.

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to nominate posts for this year, and of course thanks to everyone who wrote those wonderful posts. We're accepting entries now for the February Post of the Month... [Read More]
Official RPG Crossing Sourcebook: The Crossing
Feb 08, 2016 - 10:42 AM - by Admin RonarsCorruption

In attempts to keep things active, we have recruited GodRosen to help us as Sourcebook Staff. We will need your help to get it active again.

The Sourcebook is a place where homebrew ideas can be brought to and the community works on them until it is determined to not be overpowering while at the same time not being powerful enough.

Feel free to enter in your own submissions, or feel free to give input on the current material we are working on.
Here are our guidelines and rules for submissions and judging.

If you don't feel comfortable submitting your own homebrew things or giving opinions on what we are currently working on you can still support your Official RPG Crossing Sourcebook: The Crossing and use any of the completed material.

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

That's it. 2015 is in the books.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for December 2015 is ... TheLawfulNeutral!

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

Sometimes it's nice to take a step back from drama and heraldic pageantry and take a look at the lighter side of storytelling. With this portrayal of a 8-inch-tall Scot, TheLawfulNeutral has certainly given us that. It's a breezy, carefree post that's just fun to read.

The other nominations for December 2015 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for January 2016 is going on even as you read this. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of January.

And keep an eye out for the winner of the 2015 Post of the Year, to be announced soon!
Community Supporters: December drive supporters bonus 3 months are all set up
Jan 01, 2016 - 11:16 AM - by Birched
For all those Community Supporters who purchased or were gifted a one year membership during the December drive, please check this post to see that you were awarded your bonus 3 months.

Thanks, everyone, for supporting RPG Crossing and the BBR Foundation!

Membership and Charity Drive 2015 Recap: $711.75 raised!
Jan 01, 2016 - 9:57 AM - by Birched
Thank you everyone for your generous support of RPG Crossing and the BBR Foundation during our 4th annual December drive! This year we raised $711.75 towards psychiatric illness research, through a combination of the site donating $5 per membership and a number of generous individuals who made direct donations to the foundation through our event page.

For more information about the BBR Foundation: https://bbrfoundation.org

Although the drive is done, our event page will remain active for some time.

We hit all three stretch goals and as such I will be adding 3 months to every membership purchased during the drive. I have some administrative work to do involving double checking gifted memberships and then I will set that up. Expect it to go through today or tomorrow. As I have in previous years, I will post the information about this in the CS forum so that everyone can see that they were included and that everything checks out.

With best wishes for a fantastic 2016,

Mark / Birched

Happy New Year And Best Wishes For 2016!

2015 has come to an end, and thus it is time to wrap up another great year at RPG Crossing. I was moved this year by several incidents where members of the community came together to help out another, despite the fact that in most cases we know each other by pseudonym and imagination only. I admire the quality of character that inhabits so many of you, and that most recently resulted in our most successful drive yet one behalf of the Brain and Behaviour Research Foundation.

Of course, RPG Crossing is centred on gaming and storytelling, and it's been a fantastic year for that as well! Our "New Player Solo Games" added two new systems to its introductory offerings to new site members (D&D 5e and 13th Age) and graduated its 650th member while miraculously keeping its waiting list at zero! Speaking of new systems, a Pathfinder group was added to the Community Supporter Exclusive Adventure in January. We also reorganized the top level game forums to reflect growing interest in a variety of game systems, and added a classic World of Darkness character sheet to our offerings (and there are whispers of even more new sheets in the works).

Our yearly contests were more amazing than ever. After wrapping up last year's Post of the Month celebrations by crowning DAquilina with the ... [Read More]
