RPGX Post of the Month Winner for September!!
Oct 16, 2017 - 8:23 PM - by dirkoth
September is a time when the world turns for many... Summer ends, and the colors of fall start, or for those down under, winter slowly loses, and the green of spring arrives. So it's fitting then, that our September POTM winner has chosen a color for their name.

It was a tight contest this month, with three excellent posts that battled it out among the judges, to the end. Finally, one emerged...

I am happy to announce that the Post of the Month winner for July 2017 is ... LittleBlueNA!

LittleBlueNA impressed the judges across the board with a poignant scene from Winter, as she tells a bit of her story to the newly assembled group. Read as Winter says her final goodbyes to her long dead family while introducing them to her companions, which can only happen in the best of Fantasy worlds. To quote Battlechaser's nomination: "LittleBlue's writing wraps the reader in a cocoon of loss, love and a dash of hope at the end."

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

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

Each is an inspirational entry and well worth the read.

Hall of Fame 2017!

Another year has come and gone, and the Hall of Fame is welcoming its newest inductees to their new front page spot. This year, 9 eligible games were nominated for Hall of Fame 2017 status by the general membership pool. The first round of voting shrank that list to six, and after a final round of voting by our Community Supporters, three games were left standing to join the hallowed ranks of the Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame is proud to welcome the 2017 Class:
Skull and Shackles - DMed by Sassafrass
Star Wars: Purge - DMed by Melchior
The City of Endless Arenas - DMed by Avner, Bhelogan, jbear. jrice408 and Vallesh

2016's Hall of Fame games will soon be moved into the Previous Inductees section, in order to leave space for the newcomers.

Please feel free to drop by this thread and... [Read More]
Iron DM 2017!
Sep 23, 2017 - 12:53 AM - by hvg3akaek

Ten times have the crowds gathered. Ten times have the contestants faced each other, fought each other, crafted adventures of danger and woe, of excitement and horror. And ten times have we seen a winner.

That is not going to change, for we one again have the sounding of the trumpets, the gathering of the tributes, and the packing of the stadium seats! Already, the judges are discussing; already, Inem, the current Iron DM is starting to ponder how he will fight to keep his title (something that has not been achieved a single time in this competition's history!). And already, the Round Zero challenge has been opened, the gauntlet thrown, to see just who will step up and become a challenger for this year.

Do you have what it takes? Do you want to find out if you do? Come, one and all, and partake in the Iron DM!
RPGX Post of the Month Winner for August!
Sep 14, 2017 - 7:36 PM - by dirkoth
August... for many, this month is sometimes thought of as the end of summer, and a last chance to get in your vacations, before returning to the grind (of school or work).

This must be why August only had four posts nominated for Post of the Month, but those four nominations were as hot as August is!
However, one of the four truly stood out from the other others, a tale within a tale, a story told within the larger game story.

I am happy to announce that the Post of the Month winner for July 2017 is ... Gallupsmirror!

You can only read the winning entry HERE because it's in a private game, but the post stands well on its' own, so go enjoy it.

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

Each is an inspirational entry and well worth the read.

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