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!

Howdy Folks!
It has been a long summer, but Outplay 2017 has reached its conclusion.

This year we played Mutants and Masterminds, D&D 5E and Pathfinder, Oh My! Contestants battled through their brackets to reach the Final Round, all to contend for the coveted title of Winner of Outplay 2017. It came down to three contestants:

Wynamoinen, whose Princess Syarafina survived the Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edtion bracket.
JackinIron, whose Wanderer outlasted all the other Mutants and Masterminds
Blackfyre, whose Kavax the Magnificent found the way through the Pathfinder bracket.

In the end, only one could win. Check out the results here!

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]
