June POTM
Jul 12, 2020 - 12:26 PM - by Admin Dirk
June found a lot of gamers writing some great posts. I believe we had NINE or so nominations for Post of the Month, which is always nice. Makes for a lively discussion among the judges, sometimes even a swordfight or two (we use rubber swords, so no judges are actually hurt, just our pride. But hey... we don't have much pride to start with, so...)

None-the-less, the battles behind the scenes produced a winner, and this month, that winner is Sassafrass!

Sass is a known excellent writer, having been nominated and won in years past. This time, Sass returns to the contest in top form with a wonderful bit of prose. I have to say, if the first three lines don't hook you and pull you in, you need a tune-up.


Take some time and read the winning entry HERE, and read the other nominations (great in their own way too) here.

Congratulate Sassafras for the well deserved win, and give a little RPXP love to the other nominees too! They all deserve a read, and some reward! There are no losers in the competition, they are all great reads!

Remember to nominate your favorite post from July in the 2020 competition. Without you, we have no contest!
RPGX Radio Episode #22: What to do after you are accepted into a game!

In what critic(s) call one of their finest episodes yet, Scimmy and kingmonkey discuss what to do when you've (yay!) been accepted to a game.

If everyone listened to this episode, they'd be happier for the 51 minutes they were listening, and then happier in the future if they were to take the great golden nuggets of advice dropped by this unlikely pair.

Seriously.

If you don't believe me, give it a listen!

May POTM

May brought a lot of nominations, which always makes the judges work tough, but fun. We get to ready a lot of good posts (and there were a lot this time), BUT, we have to pick winners, and that's tough.

We all sat down (socially distant, of course... Squeak was there, so no one wanted to be close), and took out our grading pens, and came up with a winner. It was tough, once again... For several judges, it was a tough decision to weed out the best from the also best.

But finally, we decided... and the winner is Elanir! Elanir returns to the contest in fine form with this entry (Elanir was the winner last year in November as well). Just goes to show what you can do with constant practice!


Take some time and read the winning entry HERE, and read the other nominations (great in their own way too) here.

Congratulate Elanir for the well deserved win, and give a little RPXP love to the other nominees too! They all deserve a read, and some reward!

Remember to nominate your favorite post from June in the 2020 competition. Without you, we have no contest!
