RPGX Post of the Month Winner for June!
Jul 19, 2017 - 12:50 AM - by dirkoth
June, when the sun heats up in the northern hemisphere, and apparently, the competition for Post of the Month does too! Wow, did we have some great posts, and the judges had a hard time with the decision. It was hard, and a well fought contest between three of the posts gathering the attention of the judges, but finally, one emerged:

The Post of the Month winner for June 2017 is ... Tilal!

You can read the winning entry HERE:

Enjoy with us the sprinkling of descriptive phrases, and the nice turn of word as Kapru experiences the rain falling outside a castle, and the approach of a coach and team. Enjoy how Tilal weaves in the others in his party into his own post, and engages their characters with his.

Please congratulate Tilal, and be sure to enjoy the other nominations for June 2017. You can find them here.

Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for July 2017 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of July, and let's reward those among us with praise for their prose!

Outplay needs more applications!
Jun 19, 2017 - 11:18 AM - by Aethera
Your attention please! At this moment, I'm counting the applications Outplay has so far and it's not looking good. So far we have NO brackets with enough applications to run! The rules as posted are looking for eight somewhat fleshed out works-in-progress (or better) per bracket by tomorrow, to confirm that we'd have enough players to run. And no, a sentence placeholder or a couple dice rolls with no attached text do not count! (I have labeled the opening post of each thread with the tally.)

D&D 5e currently has four applications with enough to consider them counting towards the eight we need. That means we need four more! If you're considering applying, please get at least the rough outline posted immediately so we can count them!

Mutants and Masterminds only has one application. Not looking good for the outside system this year.

Pathfinder only has two applications with enough meat on them to count towards the eight. Again, that means we need six more.
Community Supporter 5e Adventure is now available!
Jun 16, 2017 - 8:50 AM - by Admin RonarsCorruption
Tales of lost artifacts have launched a thousand voyages, and there are few who do not dream of some day making a grand discovery that would grant them unimaginable wealth and power. And what greater power is there to claim than that of the gods themselves?

In the Genesis Gauntlet campaign, the players take the role of a hastily formed band of fledgling treasure-hunters, banded together over a common goal: to find the Gauntlet of Genesis, a tool created by the gods themselves to shape the course of the multiverse.

While it never hurts for party members to have met any or all of each other before the events of the first adventure, this campaign doesnít require it. Every member of the party awakens the same way: the fuzzy memory of a huge celebration, too much drinking, and meeting up with a group of others that share your goal of unearthing the truth behind one of the landís most famous fairy tales.

Sound familiar? It's the introduction to an epic campaign we've been running for community supporters for a few years now. First in 3rd edition, then in pathfinder... but there's a new twist: now, the Community Supporter Exclusive Genesis Gauntlet Adventure (or CSEA for short), is now available to 5e players!

Come on down and apply today!
