March Post of the Month (POTM)
Apr 10, 2018 - 10:26 PM - by dirkoth
March came in like a lion where I live, and so did some great posts around the board! Several of them were nominated, and this month, one of them stood out to the judges, and we awarded it the March POTM.

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

Even heroes can have second thoughts during their quests, and Dracina takes us inside the mind of the PC for several contemplative thoughts. A nice blend of inner thoughts and quiet description, it sets the scene well, and takes us along on the introspective journey Cherin makes, and shows us just a bit of character fullness, and growth.


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


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

The PotM contest for April 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 their prose! They can't win, if you don't do YOUR part, and nominate.
Outplay 2018 Applications Open
Apr 05, 2018 - 9:18 AM - by Admin RonarsCorruption

So, you fancy yourself an adventurer? Well then, you could go over the yellow hills, through the burning swamps, and transverse the desert of no return. And guess what you will find there? Nothing! So, save yourself the trouble my friend. Just down the road, The Kingdom of Zanakazu has constructed The Labyrinth, a great temple to the God of Challenges, and has challenged all comers to loot it... if they can!

No need to go far to find your fame and fortune. If you yearn to pick a lock, kick in a door and collect treasure, you have all the skills needed to enter. Whoever gets out with the most treasure will be crowned champion!


Outplay this year is going to be a little different. No - it's going to be a lot different! Every applicant is being set loose, all at once, into a single megadungeon, where you'll have to compete with one another (and the deadly challenges within) for the treasures it holds!

And whoever collects the most treasures before they die (or, if they're lucky, escape) will be the Outplay 2018 champion!

Due to the massive structure change, this year Outplay will only be run in 5e and Pathfinder. Full details can be found over in the... [Read More]
The 2018 RPGX Easter Egg Hunt Has Begun!
Apr 01, 2018 - 7:59 AM - by Birched
Welcome to the 2018 Easter Egg Hunt!





The Easter Bunny has returned from another long year of painting eggs and chewing that fake plastic grass, to grace our pages with eggs, and clues to his or her identity.


Here's how it works: Images of painted eggs (like the one in the header of this post) have been hidden throughout the forums in locations that any member can access. Each of the eggs contain a clue to the identity of the 2018 Easter Bunny. Find the eggs, mouse over it to collect the clues, and figure out who the Bunny is this year!

Participants should post their findings in secret text in the Easter Egg Hunt 2018 thread that has been created in the Announcement Discussion forum. The winner will be the person to correctly post the locations of... [Read More]

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!
