Hall of Fame 2019!

Another year has come and gone, and the Hall of Fame is welcoming its newest inductees to their new front page spot. This year, 15 eligible games were nominated for Hall of Fame 2018 status by the general membership pool. The first round of voting shrank that list to seven, 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 2019 Class:
Arbiters of a New Age - a 3rd edition Mutants & Masterminds game GMed by WhovianBeast
The Empire's Trials - a Pathfinder game GMed by MoonZar
Priestess - a 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons game DMed by tomplum
Please feel free to drop by this thread and congratulate all the winners and participants in the 2019 Hall of Fame contest.

It's never too early to start thinking about... [Read More]
September POTM
Oct 09, 2019 - 5:31 PM - by Admin Dirk
I think the Outplay competition wore everyone out (but if you are recovered, Iron DM is kicking off NOW!!!). We had a small number of people nominated for the Post of the Month, but the nominations were still very high quality, so the judges still had work to do. Even with just a couple, the competition was tough... and the judging tougher still.

But, the judges did their job, and came to a conclusion. The winner of the September Post of the Month was Rhaiber!

The nominator and the judges felt that Rhaiber does an excellent job navigating each interaction with the other PCs as they have introduced themselves to her in this post. Check out the nice range of emotions brewing in the heart of Rhaiber's character that we get a glimpse of here. This is not your standard "Old Crone", it is a fully fleshed out, deep character. We think you will enjoy the post!

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

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

And remember: The Iron DM is still ongoing, so head on over and give it a try this year. Guaranteed to be a new... [Read More]
Iron DM 2019!!!
Sep 29, 2019 - 5:33 AM - by Inem

You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. With the power of my victories, I have wrested control of this competition away from our honorable chairman, hvg3akaek! If you win often enough, you get to do that, apparently! Who knew? But it's TOTALLY in the sacred ceremonial arcane rules governing this competition and has nothing to do with availability of any organizers or mundane reasons such as that!

But you know what that means? You know what's totally up for grabs? The crown for Iron DM 2019! Because for the first time in years, it is clear straight out of the gate that the reigning champion, myself, will not be defending the title. There will be a new Iron DM crowned this year.

So come, competitors of the past, and first time participants! Come forth and take on this challenge, and prove yourself in the arena. Dive into the round zero challenge and help create stories for the legends! Join us in this year's ... [Read More]

August Post of the Month Winner
Sep 15, 2019 - 10:25 PM - by Admin Dirk
Well, it was a tough month, lots of good writers, and very, very close scores by the judges. It seems that the Outplay competition brought out the best in a lot of folks, and the competition for POTM was just as fierce as for Outplay!

After much arguing and bickering, the judges came to the singular conclusion. The winner of the August Post of the Month was Karhald!

Karhald was nominated for an excellent death post in July, which many judges thought was good. But, they thought that this post was better in every way. It is an excellent example of a well written and creative post, and adds a bit of both world-building and interaction with NPCs.

The game thread is private, but you can read the winning entry HERE, and read all the other nominations (great in their own way too) here.

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

And remember: The Hall of Fame voting is still ongoing, so head on over to this thread to help us choose which of the nominated games to forward over to the Community... [Read More]
