June Post of the Month Winner
Jul 15, 2019 - 7:14 PM - by Admin Dirk
Well, June is in the books, past history.

And while a lot of gamers may have taken a short vacation from gaming (and gone on a real vacation!), there were several people who stuck to their games, and wrote some awesome posts!

And, lucky for us all, some other folks took the time to recognize them for it, and nominate those posts for Post of the Month honors. That means, we get to read some great game posts!

Among them was this month's winner, Leo Byron!

Take a read of Leo's scene setting post (bring some popcorn too, it will take you a while), and you'll see the same things the judges did... richness in detail, beautiful imagery, quality writing that is writing is just great, entertaining and image provoking.


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

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

1000 Graduates of the New Player Solo Games!

The New Player Solo Games program (NPSGs for short) has just marked a full 1000 graduates!

Yes, one thousand players (and counting) have managed to successfully get their brave characters through The Tower Of The Mage Newby, and we're looking for more. It would be hard to thank every volunteer GM who has made this possible, but at present we definitely need to thank zevonian for running the program at full capacity for many years, and chocoladevla and Wynamoinen deserve a shout-out for stepping up to boost us past this first thousand players, with many more to come!

Some fun... [Read More]

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
Pathfinder
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...
