Share some good spirit at RPG Crossing's 5th Annual Community Day!
Mar 31, 2024 - 7:32 PM - by Birched
For the fifth 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 in the world 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!

PotM February

Declaration of the winning author of the Month February: Rockerboy!!!! CONGRATZZZ!

And now I need to pay attention because the winning post was NOT this one, even though it was nominated because (quote) Rockerboy's GM skills and storytelling are top notch. His posts are cinematic and really helps to set up the world and event's that we'll be experiencing. I feel the opening post from Issue 0 of the Gotham City Impostors really captures this. Nope, it wasn't that post that was the winning post (but feel welcome to grant some RPXP) but this one
This post was nominated because there was a lot of 'DM quality-appreciation'. To quote EMIW: Frankly I'm incensed that Rockerboy hasn't won PotM before. His scenes are always so clearly laid out - the pacing, the emphasis, the expansion of character work done by players, everything is on point. This post describing the opening of the door to an ancient surveillance outpost, hidden for hundreds of thousands of years, shows this well. Character actions are described beautifully and blended into a seamless narrative, and his use of tables as summary boxes at the bottom of GM posts is a clever... [Read More]

Premise of 2024 Event: You team up with 2 other players from RPG Crossing to form a group of goblins who have been charged with stealing a golden T-Rex egg and returning it to your goblin queen.

Mechanics: Your team may choose to play competitively or non-competitively. Either way, there will be a goblin world to explore, trivia questions about RPG Crossing, and challenging tasks.

Duration and Post Rate: The game lasts for two weeks. Each team is to post daily, one post per team. This means you can divide up the posts among team members for an average of two posts per week per team member.
