Post of the Year (POTY) for 2019

For the judges the Post of the Month and Post of the Year contests, the end of one year and the beginning of another means we're faced with the fiendishly difficult but immensely enjoyable task of deciding which one stood out above all the others, of choosing which single post represented the best work done on the site for all of 2019. It's kind of double duty, honestly, we have to judge the December winner, and then turn around and begin arguing over the best of the twelve for the year!

That's darn near impossible, of course. Selecting the best from the best is never easy, especially with both Dirk and Squeak in the process, but finally the smarter heads prevailed and a consensus was reached.


Please join the judges in congratulating our Post of the Year winner for 2019 - Karhald


The game thread is private, but you can read Karhald's winning entry HERE.


Karhald's winning post was at least his second nomination in the year, which goes to show that if you don't win the first time, just keep writing! His first nomination was excellent, but lost to a very creative month of solid posts, but Karhald astounded the judges again in a month, with an even more exceptional post in an even harder month of quality postings. But, it shined above the others then, and it continued to shine above the others in our annual review and judgement.

It is an excellent example of a well written and creative post, and adds a bit of both world-building and interaction with NPCs. IT holds up well, and is memorable even this many months later for its crafting and well rounded prose.



Many thanks to everyone who took the time to nominate posts for this year, and of course thanks to everyone who wrote those wonderful posts. We're accepting entries now for the January AND February Post of the Month contest, so if you want to be in the running for the 2020 Post of the Year award, get your nominations in now (January closes this weekend!).



And, if you'd like to get involved with the POTM contest, you can do so in two ways. One, be sure to nominate your favorite writer and post each month, so that we keep the judges busy. And if you'd like to do a bit more, there's always work behind-the-scenes to do, and we are looking for volunteers to help judge each month. Contact Dirkoth if you'd like to do (and know) more!
