Easter is coming!
Apr 05, 2020 - 10:16 AM - by Admin Dirk
Easter is coming!

That means the tradition of our annual Easter Egg Hunt!

Next weekend, on Easter Sunday... it's time to find the eggs, read the clues, and guess the secret identity of our Special Easter Bunny.

Here's how it works for those who joined after last year's AMAZING hunt: Images of painted eggs (like the one in the header of this post) will be placed throughout the forums in locations that any member can access. Each of the eggs contain a clue to the identity of the 2020 Easter Bunny. Find the eggs, mouse over it to collect the clues, and figure out who the Bunny is this year! The Easter Bunny is a member of the site, and probably someone you have seen around the boards, somewhere in the year.

The winner will be the person to correctly post the locations of all the hidden eggs they found, as well as the identity (username) of the Easter Bunny. The winner gets a special Avatar, and even better, the feeling of accomplishment that comes from beating Unko Talok at his forte.

So, stay tuned, and sharpen those search/perception skills, because you'll need them!
Reputation is back to normal

Hey all,

I've set reputation back to the usual rules before we get too exhausted praising everyone, but please -- keep using it! Every day, try take a moment to notice someone who posts something awesome, and thank them for it.

Keep well, everyone!
April Community Appreciation Day(s)
Mar 31, 2020 - 7:08 PM - by Birched
April 1 is traditionally a day of foolish pranks and merry making. In light of current events, however, the staff at RPG Crossing has decided to celebrate the day in a different manner. Instead of practical jokes and silly pranks, we want to take the day to celebrate something different: the awesomeness of our community.

That's why we are making April's Fools Day a special day this year. All day long, we are asking that instead of a joke or a prank, you instead give out RPXP "hits" to people, to remind everyone of the good things still happening. You can give RPXP for great game posts, just like always, but we would like you to please go out and spread the good news about anything else as well.

The Parameters
  1. Our April Community Appreciation Day(s) begins immediately (we know it is March 31, but don't want confusion about 'is this real?') and will go until the morning of April 2.
  2. The point is to send people real and meaningful messages. Please do that!

A Message from the Staff of RPGX:

A message from the staff of RPGX:

My dear RPGX community,

As I am sure you are well aware the world is currently facing the most widespread pandemic in any of our lifetimes (with the exception of my grandmother, who I kid you not, remembers the Spanish flu). I’m sure you’ve seen dozens of news articles, memes, and general nonsense concerning the novel coronavirus disease, COVID-19. We’re not going to belabor the importance of flattening the curve, the significance of social distancing (and let’s be honest we’re an online community so we’re pretty awesome at that anyway), government failures, and we’re not going to try to dissect the psychological machinations of hoarding toilet tissue for a respiratory disease. No, that’s not what you’re here for and that’s not what we’re here to do.

You’re here to game, to write, to read, and to escape. You come here to enjoy the fun that is living in a world of fantasy and magic, or technology and magic, or some combination thereof. Most of us started playing these sorts of games with the same basic premise, “save the princess McGuffin.” Now princess McGuffin is a generic term that could be a town or village or what have you; the point is we started off with the goal of saving people – of being kind and compassionate and having the strength and abilities to overcome whatever problem lay before...

February POTM
Mar 12, 2020 - 8:03 PM - by Admin Dirk
February brought a lot of chaos into the world, north and south of the equator. It also brought out a lot of great writing, and nominations. It made for a challenging set of judgements.

But, the judges ignored the chaos, buckled down and did their jobs, and we decided that as tough as it was to choose between some of the best, this month's winner is 4eyedBadger!

You can read the winning entry HERE, and read the other nominations (great in their own way too) here.

Congratulate 4eyedBadger for the well deserved win, and give a little RPXP love to the other nominees too! They all deserve a read, and some reward!

Remember to nominate your favorite post from March in the 2020 competition. Without you, we have no contest!

If you'd like to be an even deeper part of the Post of the Month contest, contact Dirkoth about being a Judge!
