January POTM

It's a new year (2020), and a new chance to nominate the best of the best, the top posts of your games.

We can't do it without you, so get out there, and nominate the best prose of the month. It's easy, it's free, and even Squeak can do it.

(technically, he can't, because he's a judge, but if he could, he could do it.)

I'd like to nominate ChiefDisbelief for this post in a game I'm playing in. The party has been through a lot and not really had time to catch their breath between encounters and I think this post is not only well written but captures the exhaustion of the part member (he is now on 1hp) and their feelings at they are asked for more but cannot give it.

Player Nominated: wodine
Game: An Untimely Encounter
System: Shadowrun
DM: Silk


Reason: Sometimes a post doesn't need anyone else mucking up the beauty of what is written. This is one of those times. The minimal context required is: Xoch is the "face" of the party; we are trying to eliminate the opposition through non-lethal means and Bill is the last one standing; Xoch did some street drugs and ran into the combat zone believing he was a dragon. This is what follows...

Status: Sort of, mostly caught up (ish) with life; working on catching up here Excuses
GM: Sky Realm (Fate) | Magic Rising (Fate) | Blackbrooke (PbtA)
Playing: Cinch (SR) | Bazziox (13th Age) | Cassia(13th Age) | Jenny (PbtA) | Moemoe (Fate)

Player Nominated: DaysUntold
Game: Decent into Avernus - Demon Team
DM: DaysUntold


Reason: Pitch-perfect and incisive, Days' DM post takes us through the filthy streets of Baldur's Gate and delivers us to one of its inestimable taverns. This piece of work is an exquisite study in pacing, carrying the narrative forward in broad strokes while keeping player agency strong. The descriptive prose exhibits the highest levels of craftmanship: strong verbs, a smattering of modifiers, and sturdy sentence construction that carries the reader along.

In addition to feeding us a handful of clear of opportunities for interaction with the city ó even before we took liberties of our own! ó Days drops us into a busy tavern with countless more opportunities for interaction. This post has more hooks than a tackle box!

I regret that exposing some of the secret text might impact play in flight. You will have to trust me that Days has taken this to superlatives as well, dropping hints and offering game-world insights where appropriate. It's a little extra seasoning to propel roleplay forward, and it has worked.

Player Nominated: gavins38
Game: Dragon of IceSpire - Storm Team
DM: Retry


Reason: Sometimes it not always what is said aloud that shows of the personality or quirks of a player. While gavins is still fairly new to the site they have done really well bringing out the latent personality of the gnome known as Otto, an entertainer with abysmal self-esteem, in an often humorous way.

Status:Post rate is a bit chaotic right now. Working on getting it stable again.
