May Post of the Month Winner!
Jun 14, 2019 - 9:27 PM - by Admin Dirk
Wow, I don't know about you, but May flew past! June, too.

But, a couple folks took the time to craft some extra great posts, and some other folks took the time to recognize them for it, and nominate those posts for Post of the Month honors.

So, it only seemed fair that our stable of busy judges took the time to look them over, and pick one. And boy, was it hard this month. We liked several of them almost equally, but a decision had to be made, and finally, after much deliberation, one was chosen to win the coveted title.

This month's winner is Odyssey!

It was a tough call, but Odyssey's work edged out the competition. One judge felt it was a gripping read, while another liked the attempt to include the actions of others in the post, namely a Bless spell. It reads like a solid story, with nice imagery.

You can read the winning entry HERE, and read all the other nominations (great in their own way too) here.

Congratulate Odyssey for the win, and give a little RPXP love to the other nominees too! They all deserve a read, and some reward!
Outplay 2019 is open!
Jun 07, 2019 - 7:23 AM - by Wynamoinen

Outplay 2019 is now open for applications!

This year, we are running two game systems
Dungeons and Dragons, 5th edition

The summonsYou're a big deal. Everyone knows it. It might get under your skin that you didn't get invited to the competition at the Labyrinth last year. But after it devolved first into a smash-and-grab, and then into a heap of rubble that buried a number of heavy-hitters alive, you can't help but be thankful that you missed it.

It doesn't surprise you when one of the most powerful mages in creation appears to speak to you personally. Naturally, he thinks that you're a great candidate for helping him to hold the future of the multiverse in your palm. The major downside seems to be that you're not the only one he asked. If you're interested in being a master of the universe, you've got to hoof it to the ruins of the Labyrinth, and impress a few snooty judges along the way.

Sounds like a pain, but you can't get the promise of world-shaking power out of your head...

April Post of the Month Winner
May 14, 2019 - 9:40 PM - by Admin Dirk
April showers sure hit where I live, and are staying long through this month too. Certainly, the rainy days brought out some great posts, and our gamers nominated the best.

Then, our judges went to work, and selected their favorite. It was a hard decision to make between them, but we finally came to an agreement.

This month's winner is DaysUntold!

The judges enjoyed the prose, which felt very solid. The post used dice rolls sparingly, to keep the reading flowing. The entire post was very rich with detail and it tickles the mind's eye with the vivid details and descriptions.

We have a Bunny Hunt Winner!
Apr 25, 2019 - 11:00 AM - by Birched
We have a winner!

We are happy to announce that Unko Talok is this year's winner of the "Easter Bunny Hunt". Unko found a mess of hidden eggs (all 16 of them), secreted away by that wascally wabbit, and then put the clues together to figure out that this year's bunny was none other than the King of Puns himself, Dirkoth! And, he did it quicker than the other hunters, giving him the crown!

Unko Talok will be awarded a prestigious (artisanal) graphic image to commemorate his achievement as the 2019 Easter Bunny Hunt Winner.

For those who are curious, here are the clues found in the hidden eggs. The eggs are still out there, but you'd best look soon, before the staff comes by to clean them up and return the place to normal.

Our bunny was born in the east. Not that east, the actual, Far East.

Our Bunny is very welcoming.

“When I was your age, television was called books.”

Some people believe our Bunny never sleeps, just types.

Our bunny is not Hall of Fame material.

Our bunny has four eyes.

When it comes to ropes, our bunny is indecisive.

Our bunny has seen a lot of spider battles. Not as many as Lloth, but close.

Our bunny can... [Read More]
Welcome to the 2019 Easter Egg Hunt!

Welcome to the 2019 Easter Egg Hunt!

The Easter Bunny has returned from another long year of painting eggs and chewing that fake plastic grass, to grace our pages with eggs, and clues to his or her identity.

Here's how it works: Images of painted eggs (like the one in the header of this post) have been hidden throughout the forums in locations that any member can access. Each of the eggs contain a clue to the identity of the 2019 Easter Bunny. Find the eggs, mouse over it to collect the clues, and figure out who the Bunny is this year! The Easter Bunny is a member of the site, and probably someone you have seen around the boards, somewhere in the year.

Participants should post their findings in secret text in the Easter Egg Hunt 2019 thread that has been created in the Announcement Discussion forum. The winner will be the... [Read More]
