"At RPG Crossing, we aim to foster an enjoyable environment for all gamers and writers, with a special focus on tabletop roleplaying games and associated genres." -- Site Rules & Help

There's a reason we put that statement at the top of our Site Rules & Help page. We mean it! I regularly receive comments about how welcoming and respectful our community is, but if that is not your experience, I and the rest of the site staff want to make sure that you know that you have avenues to be heard, and that we take such communications seriously. You can identify site staff by their red usernames, a "Staff" or "Admin" badge beside their user name, and by their appearance in this list.

This Month we had two posts getting high praise and votes from our judges (who are facing a huge challenge to read and decide, thank you ll for that) and we needed a pop-up judge to make the final decision. Their words were, "both posts were providing a sparkle, the vibe of a good roleplay post but somehow, PlaidPeregrine's post appealed just a tiny bit more to me". So: CONGRATS!!!!!

You can read their post over here and do not forget to grant some love and appreciation by clicking those scales (right top of a post) to grant some RPXP
@Idrahil chapeau for making it so hard on us with your post over here; it was well written, very much in character using the Dwarven speech to an extent we could almost hear it in our minds :-)

Worth reading: all entries! Check these links and... [Read More]
Scavenger Hunt Coming Soon!

The 2nd Annual Scavenger Hunt is Coming Soon

Grab your magnifying glasses, because the Scavenger Hunt will be returning this year with a whole new list of things to find, people to see, and shenanigans to enact. Please find a bit of time in your schedule to be online on April 17th at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 6 PM CET. There will be a 36 hour window for you to gather your teammates, scavenge your items, and format that all important hunt list.
Share some good spirit at RPG Crossing's 3rd Annual Community Day!
Mar 31, 2022 - 10:00 PM - by Birched
For the third year in a row, RPG Crossing will be running a Community Day this April 1. Once again, given the extent of foolishness we are still dealing with all the time these days, we will skip the April Fools' Day tomfoolery and focus on the merry. Instead of practical jokes and silly pranks, we will 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 again this year. All day long (and some of each of the neighbouring days), 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!
