February Post of the Month
Mar 06, 2018 - 5:19 PM - by dirkoth
February is the shortest month of the year, but there was no shortage of good posts to read. Some were nominated, and this month, one of them stood out to all the judges, and we awarded it the February POTM.

I am happy to announce that the Post of the Month winner for February 2018 is ... Kellycat!

It's the tale about a wizardess named Miranda, who was simply trying to scatter her mentor's ashes on an island. Unfortunately, she ended up smack-dab in the middle of a Dragon War, with strange enemies, and even stranger new allies. In addition, she has found that one of her schools of magic doesn't work like it should anymore, on the island, and this post is her attempt to discover why. It's a nice piece that delves into the magic behind the magic, and some of the perils wizards may face when they deal with powers beyond themselves.

You can read the winning entry HERE, so please, go and enjoy it!

Please congratulate Kellycat and be sure to enjoy the other nominations from February 2018. You can find them here. Each is an excellent entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for March 2018 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month, and let's reward those among us with praise for... [Read More]

January Post of the Month
Feb 03, 2018 - 9:32 PM - by dirkoth
January, when things start anew (chronologically), and yet are locked in the dead of frozen winter (for those in the northern hemisphere). If you are in the southern half of the world, it's a time of high summer and heat.

No matter your locale, January was filled with great posts, and many of them were nominated for Post of the Month. And boy, were they GOOD! As a judge, I have to say, I had a really tough time this month. Luckily, I had good help, and between us, we chose the one to win.

I am happy to announce that the Post of the Month winner for January 2018 is ... Sassafrass!

Get on over to read it, and feel the shivers race up your goose-bumped skin. Follow Sass as the words create the slow building tension of a haunted house, complete with creepy poems, unsettling noises, and the realization that some things are not what they seem.

You can read the winning entry HERE, so please, go and enjoy it!

Please congratulate Sassafrass and be sure to enjoy the other nominations from January 2018. You can find them here. Each is an inspirational entry and well worth the read.

Post of the Year (2017) Winner!
Jan 21, 2018 - 6:46 PM - by dirkoth
For the judges 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 2017.

That's darn near impossible, of course. 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 2017 - Eleven Sided Die!

You can read Eleven's winning post here.

In the post, Eleven wrote of his of his PC Ameya. Ameya is young girl with a traumatic past making a living as a harrow card reader in the slums of Korvosa. Eleven Sided Die took a chance, and did an actual card reading prior to writing and used that as a basis for this post.

Read along, and see how Eleven Sided Die managed not only to make something as trivial as flipping cards on a carpet into an interesting read, but turned it into a bit of insight into who Ameya is and what drives her.

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... [Read More]
