    Yea, it always feels good to get nominated, even if there isn't a super duper chance they will win. Just look around for games that look good or players who you have played with who stand out a little...

    Well, let me be the first to follow through and turn this more into a fun event by nominating oppaizombie for best player and KissSpooky for best GM for High Devil Sands. Oppaizombie impressed me right out of the gate with an excellent and developed character, and long and thoughtful posts. And his account was only created this month, which means he has earned the "totally rockin' new guy" award. KissSpooky is impressing me because it's one of the few RPGs that I've ever felt a physical need to join that overrode my normal time constraints. I haven't finished my character yet, but still, I've got to give the guy credit.

    On the Star Wars front, I'll nominate SephyCloneNo15 for playing one of the few characters in the 007 series who isn't a homicidal sociopath. His droid is, but that's just a technicality (since the droid is still incapable of acting upon those impulses- see what I have to work with?). Keep fighting the good fight.

    So I've got 1 player nom, 2 game noms and 2 GM noms left...

    Okay,

    Best GM - [hl=silver]LightSideApprentice[/hl] for his fantastic Idea of Honour Among Theives, I have fun reading it buddy.
    Best Roleplayer - I think this is legal? I nominate our awesome Moddess, [hl=teal]NaboosPrincess[/hl](why can't you have easier colors to imitate?) for her excellent work as Elizabeth Swan in Pirates III
    Best RPG - ArchAngels and Alchemists, because I enjoy reading it...
    Best New RPG - Hasn't started yet, but I can already see all the talent we have from the character sheets, Podracer II:Need For Speed

    Since it seems appropriate...

    I'll explain why I nominated Archangels and Alchemists for Best RPG. A while back Winged mentioned this RPG idea he had involving a direct threat to the Force. I was intrgued. How would this work? A drug that could wholly surpress the Force in a being for life. My God, I say, think about the reaction the FORCE would have. It'd fight back. It'd manifest itself. Oh yes, he said. And now, we've got a Force philosophy game (can you believe it, a Jedi game with NO Jedi) in the RPF with deep and textured characters and an intriguing plot that deserves a nomination for Best RPG.

    I am surprised to say the least, taken aback to say a little bit more. LightWarden, thank you for appreciating what I have brought to the forums so soon after joining. Frankly, the "totally rockin' new guy" award is more of an honour than the nomination. But thank you for both.

    I'm sure if you get such a comment from Light, it is extremely well-deserved. Nice work oppaizombie.

    Yes, PRENN, my nomination is a smily. :)

    Well, I can't nominate myself. I've only been nominated once anyways, so it wouldn't matter much. My real nominations are still being considered. :p

    Best Players: Livi-Wan and DARTH-bojangles

    The rules say you can't nominate yourself for player, but it doesn't say you can't nominate your own game. So, what the hell...

    SW RPG: Dr. Noah
    Non-SW: Exiles

    :p

    Dubya, didn't you pull that same trick last time around?

    And, LW, thanks. Just for you, I'll keep Dub-Three non-lethal for as long as possible.

    Most of what and who I've been reading around here lately have already been nominated, although I noticed that Elu hasn't made the roleplayer nominations yet! So he's just a GM is he... [face_thinking] :p

    So yes, to that end:

    Best Roleplayer: Darth_Elu

    And everything else is already nominated.

    [face_shhh] Might as well try it again. :p I won't do it again. I promise.

    Looks like Sithy nominated Exiles, anyway.

    And thanks for nominating me for GM, fellas, but I'm ineligable this round. :(

    Voting promotes Capitalism.

    Capitalism is bad.

    Voting is bad.

    Because voting promotes Capitalism.

    And Capitalism is bad.

    I think I'm stuck...

    Anyway, you know you've always got my vote Dubya, no matter how bad voting is.

    Because it promotes Capitalism...

    The economy. I don't like the way this economy is acting. It's not very American, and that's why the economy is part.. of the Axis of Evil.

    A great many of you have already submitted your votes - thank you for your participation thus far :) As we still have several days before voting closes you may want to encourage your friends to cast votes of their own, too, in an effort to boost final numbers ;)
