1. Wynamoinen & Syarafina
Really liked the princess' energy, she didn't lose her cool and politeness and tried to be helpful most of the time.

2. Jackinirons & Geoffrey
This was a close call between Geoffrey and Syarafina, but unfortunately only one could prevail. Honestly, you were my biggest discovery in outplay this year, you are a great role player and it was very good to read you all along. I could try to give a comprehensive hint of why my preference was with the princess' but at the end of the day it becomes subjective and the difference was by the thickness of hair.

3. Blackfyre & Kavax
Kavax is a great character, after all he made it that far. I voted for him first or second in all the previous round. Somehow for the final round, I started to find him a bit repetitive in his interactions, mostly spending his time to be hostile and in conflict with most of what the other characters are saying. Over time it wasn't that much interesting to read anymore. I guess this is his temper, but still I would have expected him to be less easy to anticipate.

At this point in the game, I know your writing is going to be stellar. What I’m looking for now is which PC moves the story forward the most, impresses me with RP skills and shows character development.

I did a bit of a running blog as I read through your character concepts so you know what I was thinking as I read it. My comments may not make the most sense to you when you read them, but it is definitely how I took them at the time.

 


 


 


At the end, it came down to the one PC that took initiative and moved the story forward. My vote goes to

1. Jackinirons as Geoffrey
This has been a great character to watch all the way through Outplay and I love how in the final round he even used the interactions he had throughout the contest to justify his reasoning. A full fleshed out and developed character that seemed to shine just a little bit brighter than the others.

2. Wynamoinen as Syarafina
Another incredible showing in Outplay. I think that your character was really dynamic and showed some great development. It was really a close call between Geoffrey and Syarafina, but I think in the end Geoffery seemed more irreplaceable.

3. Blackfyre as Kavax
The character started off well enough but he didn't seem to move anywhere past the first or second post. I was intrigued at first by his insistancethat he was indeed a dragon and his belief superseded anything that contradicted it, but after that reveal he seemed to just spin his wheels lacking any big moment.

Okay I abstain ... I just really enjoyed the read in general ... perhaps the next time I will have better input -- this time I am just awed and I want all 3 of those players in a game (any game) that I am running or even playing in

I seriously kept reading and reading, but for now there is only one winner ;-)
Hardest part was to pick number 2 and 3 and in the end I had no clear reasons and went for the character that I simply liked a tinybit better.
I would have preferred a tie between JackinIron and Blackfyre

Number 1
Wynamoinen's Ex-Princess Syarafina Grinelda Delight-and-Chastity Halethorpe-Šztöffbînder of Rheum
The best aspect of this character is the fact that it is a very 3D character very well roleplayed. Wynamoinen kept the Princess vibrant and sparkling, and her positive royal energy was everywhere. Loved the little accents like for example the >PLUNK< of the final note and the ending with the written letter and attack was really cool and strong. Cliffhangers are the best way to 'end' a story and I loved this character.
Impressed how the first round's characters lived on within the Princess' actions and thoughts...

Number 2
JackinIron's Geoffrey Buckland, the Wanderer
I really liked the catch 22 in this entire character, having died so many times and now the final round the paradox of needing to answer the question about the why of continuing to live. The way you described the actions made me able to see it, and that was well done

Number 3
Blackfyre's Kavax the Magnificent
Clever the detect magic spell; and very strong in character monologues about the illogical way of actions of the god and the scepticism of the entire situation. Intriguing character....
