No idea. I'm not sure it has even been made yet? There is the Wall of Fame, which shows all current badges, kudos.

It's relevant because the last time I played I either lost points or came close to losing points, because of how 'wall-of-text-y' my paragraphs had appeared to the Judge. Waaaaaaaaaaaay back when I first joined the site, I had almost immediately started using the Drake(no background) style, and over the years had completely forgotten there even were other formats. The Drake style has a completely open post/text area from one side of the screen to the other, but most of the others have varying levels of reduced width, down to half or slightly less.

So what's a normal-sized paragraph in my site style of choice can be decidedly not in another's. So would like to know what I should be building a post around, in terms of visual space.
Drake (no background) is the default. If judges think things look really weird, I will ask them to examine them using that theme.

I believe the list you want is here. It looks like brown to me.

Fyi, I found this page by clicking on Bhelogan's Hall of Fame award twice.

Just had three ďHoly CrapĒ moments in a row. Didnít even know the site had an official Wall of Fame, turns out Iím not only on it but Iím on the Wall of Fame for ďGreat Player Competition (Outplay) Winner (2008)Ē.

...I donít suppose that could be declared official for Outplay? Like on the Champions list?

And I know I promised that if I ever won one of these things Iíd volunteer to be a Judge. If 2008ís round is made official I do intend to fulfill that promise. Kind of assuming itís too late for this year but Iíd love to talk about it.

You are a winner in my book. Not every award has a badge that goes on your user profile (or else I would be missing a bunch of lego bricks)

Unfortunately, things didn't quite go according to plan.

Unless something drastically changes for me within the next 20 days 3 hours and 58 minutes, I'll probably have to enjoy this one from the stands. At least I can enjoy participation as a spectator!
Sorry to hear that Strange, I'll cross my fingers and toes for you!

Hmm. I am working on my character concept and have three signature moves I want to take, but I'm only allowed two of them. Decisions, decisions...

This is fun!

I'm really enjoying dabbling with this system in terms of creative character creation. Also, though I might be early to come to that conclusion, I think for the sake of a competition like Outplay, a system like this has a lot of advantages compared to something more established, but with other design purposes in mind than being run for Outplay.

D'aww, shucks.

I submitted a character on the assumption that even if the update does happen its too late to hop over the judge's table. Which, seems like it would be. Y'all got something going and it'll be interesting to see it unfold.

I have a very specific character in mind (this is probably the best chance I'll ever have to do the proper troll character I've always wanted), so this would mean forfeiting the bonus points for the application. How significant are those two bonus points? Like would I be completely crippling my application by forfeiting the bonus, or is it a pretty small blow in the grand scheme of things?

I think it was mentioned earlier that the judges are judging characters out of 40 points. So missing out on 2 bonus points is going to be noticable but by itself won't kill you if I had to guess.

You are correct, my question has already been answered. Sorry about that!

These points will be added to the judges scores. A judge has 40 points to assign, shown in the matrix in the Meet the Judges thread. Thus, 1 bonus point is roughly 2.5%. (As the GM, I will add the bonus points to the judges scores when they are being tallied)

My advice would be if you have a character you really want to play go with that and don’t worry about the random rolls. Rolling randomly is more for inspiration if you’re not sure what to do.

I remember a brief pathfinder game that had optional random tables for origin, background event, gender race, and class, with separate bonuses for each.

I chose to roll for everything and ended up with a Male Duergar Witch, hailing from a tropical island that recently ended up the sole survivor of a shipwreck, and the ship that rescued him carried him to the starting port city.

Fun times.

This. This is the reason I love random character generation!

Though I guess most times I'm not doing everything random, but making sense out of random facts about your new character can be a hilariously creative activity!
