August POTM

August is here, and whether that's summer or winter for you and yours, it's a great time to game with your friends.

And as you do game with them, why not nominate them for their great posts? It's easy and free!

If it was a superb post, nominate it here for Post of the Month, and they may win. Whether or not they do, it's just feels great being nominated!

Player Nominated: Maskain
Game: Abyss Emerging
DM: Dressedtojazz

Reason for nomination: It is not everyday we get a character in our Cthulhu-vibed fantasy games that has star potential and a tricorn hat. Well, we have just that in Miss Lenna Tarvey, the Siren of the Seas and the colorful blob in a group of solemn monochrome (not the players' creative writing mind you - that's equally colorful). What I love about this initial post is how Lenna takes in the scene as not only the star Maskain wants her to be, but also a larger than life woman who wants to own the seas. Maskain adds lore to the little town and easily slides in as the character I envisioned when I read the application.

Player: The Third
Game: The Three Evils
DM: hvg3akaek

Reason: The Third took a bad situation (one companion had just been killed, the entire party had died numerous times before), played with it (delved into horror filled memories of past failures), made purposefully bad tactical decisions (ran away from the fight, leaving the others on their own), even spent bonus resources on it, only to tell a tale that had his character come to a point where he could return to the fight, and be in a much better frame of mind. Ultimately, he sacrificed in-game resources and time to tell a character driven pivotal point and reaction to the scene at hand!

Player Nominated: Karhald (shameless self-nomination)
Game: [EARTDAWN] Crow-eater
DM: NotAHoneyBadger
Reason for nomination: I never thought I'd go and nominate myself, but I am quite proud of this post. It displays joy at finding a wolf that the character, Kilrik (ork Beastmaster), had been dreaming about. He faced dangers in the jungle, including a forest fire, an attack by a panther at night, and a hard climb up the mountains only to be warned of a terrifying Horror lurking in the area where he is going in search of the she-wolf that he only knows of as She.

He finally finds her, and there is an instant moment of kinship, as though they were fated to be together as companions and kindred spirits. Then she is torn from him before he could even Name her.

Elation becomes panic, becomes desperation, and results in a blood oath and a cry of mourning as the sun greets the sorrowful scene.

Player: GeoAvanti
Game: Way of the Wicked
GM: Gox
Link to Post

Reason for Nomination: Playing in evil games can be difficult, but this one has been a pleasure to read and to be a part of. But even with the dark undertones, there is still room for humor and interesting characterization and GeoAvanti has been doing that very well. Especially in this post. The imagery of the entire situation borders on the absurd from his desire to bathe in mud, to the thought of the attendants 'grooming a mass of dirty, tangled fur', all to appear presentable for a meeting.

Player: JackinIrons
Game: Way of the Wicked

Reason for Nomination: The somewhat reserved noblewoman Alette has a crazy talking ghost sword riding shotgun in her brain, and the two of them still manage to be the voices of reason as their band of escaped convicts swiftly find themselves entangled with forces much bigger than them. JackinIrons' Alette helps keep the group on track in their current situation and perhaps begins to untangle some of the motivation for what some very powerful evil doers are toying with the group of equally evil but much less powerful protagonists.
