RPGX Post of the Month Winner for July!
Aug 09, 2017 - 11:29 PM - by dirkoth
July... the heat of this midsummer month in the northern hemisphere means vacations, or staying inside. In the southern hemispheres, it's midwinter, and the coldest part of the year.

This must be why July only had four posts nominated for Post of the Month, but my, what a great selection of four posts! Trust me, the judges had a hard time with the decision. It was hard and a well fought contest between three all four of the posts, with each one garnering a judges favored comments.

But, finally, one prevailed, and I am happy to announce that the Post of the Month winner for July 2017 is ... Khelbiros!

You can read the winning entry HERE:

The combat round and summary is a staple of most games... a thousand times or more, a GM will have to wrap up the many things happening in a round, and then advance the story. In a great game, the GM is not the only one to do a summary, and in this case, Khelbiros brings the many actions of a chaotic round right to us, and wraps them up nicely through the eyes of Naginata, the PC. The judges were impressed by the writing, the imagery, and the inclusion of all the action, in a nice, tight post that captured the feel of the moment, and advanced the plot seamlessly.

Please congratulate Khelbiros, and be sure to enjoy the other nominations for July 2017. You can find them... [Read More]

RPGX Post of the Month Winner for June!
Jul 19, 2017 - 12:50 AM - by dirkoth
June, when the sun heats up in the northern hemisphere, and apparently, the competition for Post of the Month does too! Wow, did we have some great posts, and the judges had a hard time with the decision. It was hard, and a well fought contest between three of the posts gathering the attention of the judges, but finally, one emerged:

The Post of the Month winner for June 2017 is ... Tilal!

You can read the winning entry HERE:

Enjoy with us the sprinkling of descriptive phrases, and the nice turn of word as Kapru experiences the rain falling outside a castle, and the approach of a coach and team. Enjoy how Tilal weaves in the others in his party into his own post, and engages their characters with his.

Please congratulate Tilal, and be sure to enjoy the other nominations for June 2017. You can find them here.

Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for July 2017 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of July, and let's reward those among us with praise for their prose!
