Post of the Month Winner for April!
May 16, 2017 - 7:15 PM - by dirkoth
Post of the Month Winner Announced!

April showers bring May Flowers. While that may or may not be true where you live, it is true that April certainly brought a wealth of good posts and writers to our monthly contest.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for April 2017 is ... Alcyone!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate Alcyone for this exemplary work!

Immerse yourself in Alcyone's rich details, as a typical tavern opening scene is set and described in deep sound, color, and activity. The work certainly sets a tone for the upcoming adventure, as well as nailing a high bar for the participants (no pun intended) to aspire towards.

The other nominations for April 2017 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for May 2017 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of May, and let's reward those among us with huzzahs for their prose!
Maintenance @ 9 am Eastern

RPG Crossing will be down for maintenance for about an hour at 9 am Eastern. Thanks for your patience!

This was complete at 10 am.
Coming soon, Outplay 2017!

It's that time of year again!

When the sun is warm, and the grass is beginning to turn green, a young gamer's thoughts turn to... showing everyone just how awesome of a player they are. What did you think I was going to say?

That's right, Outplay 2017 is right around the corner, but this year, we want to know; what systems do you want us to run? Would you apply if there was a Pathfinder division? Are you 5e all the way? Would you prefer to play 4e, or Mutants and Masterminds, or GURPS, or Basic DnD?

We want to hear from you! Now through May 10th you can go here to vote for what systems you'd like to see in this year's Outplay - the applications for which will open in June, by the way. (We'll spend May trying to find GMs for the odd systems we weren't expecting to run.) Keep in mind, if we can't come up with a game master and three judges, we can't run a niche system bracket. Sorry, but volunteers are sometimes hard to come by.

Mark your calendars, this year is going to be a good one!
We have a winner in the Easter Egg hunt!

We have a winner!

We are happy to announce that LittleBlueNA is this year's winner of the "Easter Bunny Hunt". LittleBlueNA found a mess of hidden eggs (all 13 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 Baker of Puns himself, NEQQ!

LittleBlueNA has been awarded a prestigious (artisanal) graphic image to commemorate his achievement as the 2017 Easter Bunny Hunt Winner.

For those who are curious, here are the locations of the hidden eggs. You'd best look soon, before the staff comes by to clean them up and return the place to normal.

Welcome to the 2017 Easter Egg Hunt! On Your Marks... Get Set.... GO!!!
Apr 16, 2017 - 7:35 AM - by Birched
Welcome to the 2017 Easter Egg Hunt!

The Easter Bunny has returned from another year long hiatus in the Azores, 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 2017 Easter Bunny. Find the eggs, mouse over it to collect the clues, and figure out who the Bunny is this year!

Participants should post their findings in secret text in the Easter Egg Hunt 2017 thread that has been created in the Announcement Discussion forum. The winner will be the person to correctly post the locations of all the hidden eggs they found, as well as the identity (username) of the... [Read More]
Post of the Month Winner for March!
Apr 12, 2017 - 8:55 AM - by dirkoth
Post of the Month Winner Announced!

"Beware the Ides of March" is a warning known through history; and we had some historic posts nominated for our March POTM contest.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for March 2017 is ... Eleven Sided Die!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate Eleven Sided Die for this exemplary work.

Ameya is young girl with a traumatic past making a living as a harrow card reader in the slums of Korvosa. Eleven Sided Die took a chance, and did an actual card reading prior to writing and used that as a basis for this post.

Read along, and see how Eleven Sided Die managed not only to make something as trivial as flipping cards on a carpet into an interesting read, but turned it into a bit of insight into who Ameya is and what drives her.

The other nominations for March 2017 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for April 2017 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of April!
