And yet again, the judges were impressed by a post... Dworin nominated this post for valid reasons the judges could completely agree with; 'This particular post really surprised me, though, so I feel it deserves the highlight.
When Yoshimi's character found the child of another character, that one complained about having to translate Sophokles, saying that it is dull. This prompted Fidelis (Yoshimi's char) to do an imprompu solo performance of Oedipus Rex which is extremely fun to read and really makes for a very lively scene. One little boy's feeling about homework will be forever changed!'

So... CONGRATZZZZ to Yoshimi for writing this engaging post It definitely deserves some RPXP love <3

More posts made us proud to have such talented writers among us, and we would... [Read More]
