Mar 15, 2019 - 6:15 PM - by Admin Dirk
February has come and gone, the shortest month of the year. But, February graced with with a large number of excellent posts, all nominated for Post of the Month.

It was a tough decision, with a lot of posts getting our judges attention and favorite spot, but after a lot of wrangling, a decision was made. One writer and their post, over and over, continued to show up high in every judge's voting list, and that writer was:


It's a tight little work, but full of nice details. Andor paints a great image with words, that comes alive in the reader's mind.

Go see Andor's work, here, and be sure to check out the other nominated pieces here! Each one is worthy of your attention.

And, be sure to nominate your favorite post for the March contest, which is already up and accepting nominations!

You've known him as dirkoth, but now you shall know him as Admin Dirk!

It's been four years since we've added a new admin at RPG Crossing, and it's time for a reinforcement. Admin Dirk needs little introduction. He has been a solid and generous staff member, organiser, and general contributor at RPG Crossing for a long time, and I look forward to having him on board.
