    [hl=orange]Autumn 2006 Role Playing Forum Awards[/hl][blockquote]

    Welcome to the awesome, the amazing, the amiable ... Autumn RPF Awards of 2006!! It's been a whole season since the last one, so be sure to read the entire post for any changes, and surprises.

    Purpose of the Awards

    No doubt you know by now that the purpose of these Awards is not singular, but rather diverse. The best and brightest characters aren't created overnight, nor are the most alluring of games. A certain degree of skill, a stroke of good fortune, and some serious dedication are often required to make a success whether you're a player in this realm, or one of its game masters.

    Among other things, these awards have been created not simply to recognise, but to honour and praise such extraordinary members for their talent, and power of presence. The winners are voted by each and every one of you, so, really, you get to decide who (or what) you believe is the most deserving of such awards.

    VIPships, remember, are more than just pretty colours to show off to your friends, they're a sign that you have been granted a rare honour by your peers, one that we know will not be taken for granted. We trust, as always, that you, winner or not, will continue to provide a shining example for us all to follow.

    How it works

    Awards are held four times per year, in April (Spring), July (Summer), October (Autumn) and January (Winter).

    The four categories for awards are:
    Best GM
    Best Roleplayer
    Best RPG
    Best New RPG

    New RPGs are defined as any active game less than three (3) months old, residing in only one (1) thread (ie, multi-thread games are not eligible for this category). RPGs must be active (ie, no locked threads may be nominated).

    Voting will consist of two rounds. Round 1 will last for five (5) days after the opening of the Awards. During this time, anyone may nominate any active RPG or player. Once a thread/player has been nominated once, please refrain from nominating them again. One nomination is sufficient to save a spot on the ballot. Users may not nominate themselves for awards. All users may make a total of two (2) nominations per category, so choose wisely!

    Round 2 begins immediately after the results of Round 1 are posted. A list of all the nominees will be compiled for members to pursue. You will then have seven (7) days to PM your votes from the choices to the host. Users will have the option of voting for up to three (3) people in the Best RPer and best GM categories, and up to two (2) games in the Games categories.

    At the end of Round 2, the winners will be announced.

    It should also be noted that any RPG that wins an award becomes ineligible for next season's awards, to ensure fairness and variety. Any players who win awards will be ineligible until the next year.

    Also note that campaigning (ie, soliciting votes and/or nominations) at any time during the awards, in any thread, in any forum, is considered spamming. Such actions will result in a warning and/or ban. Make this fun for everyone and allow the RPF patrons to vote however they desire. ;)

    Prizes

    As always, the part you've all been waiting for.

    The winning GM and Roleplayer will each be awarded VIPship (with the ability to choose custom colors) for one week

    Aww, Penguinator beat me to it. I was going to nominate [link=http://boards.theforce.net/non_star_wars_role_playing/b10755/24932419/p1/?96]High Devil Sands[/link] for Best New RPG. I mean, how can you say no to a Steampunk Fantasy Western? Especially when we're only a hundred posts in, and just about every one of them has been high-quality goodness.

    Best RPG: System Lords IV Uneasy Alliances

    I never thought I'd get into a fleet RPG, but here I am, a member with a growing empire (and almost a monopoly on the Tibanna-producing planets of the Galaxy Mwahahaha!) a pair of allies who I'm certain I can trust to pull myself out of the fire, and I'm having a heck of a good time too.

    Even though I am fairly new here (I don't think I have read enough of the other stories to nominate them) I can tell by participating with him, that he should be honoured with nomination. So I nominate Penguinator-176 for Best Player.

    Best Player NSWRP: Penguinator-176

    Yes, please do nominate people, even if you don't know them personally. Maybe you've just been impressed by some of their posts. We used to get tons of nominations for every category-- I'd like to see that again! :D
