    Summer 2006 Role Playing Forum Awards
    Guess what? Yep! It's that time of the year again! We are pleased to present the Summer season's RPF Awards. As you may very well know, this is our second ceremony that incorporates two forums filled with diverse RPGs, both of a Star Wars and non-Star Wars variety. No doubt we will receive a huge offering of nominations and votes to follow. Please be sure to read the entire post, as always, since it contains a great deal of 'official' information.

    Purpose of the Awards

    Our forum is a unique one: fun, yet very challenging. It takes a great deal of hard work and dedication to build a successful game or navigate through the galaxy, or indeed, beyond its borders, with a character, or several of them. These awards have been established in recognition of the extraordinary efforts of our members. The VIPships and publicity awarded to winners are meant to serve as both a reward for a job well done and a way to increase visibility of these members, as guides and recognised specialists in their winning category. It is hoped that others will learn from their example, thus improving the forum overall, and enriching our great community.

    How it works

    Awards will be held four times per year, in April (Spring), July (Summer), October (Autumn) and January (Winter). Apologies to anyone who lives in a country where these seasons are reversed. We can't have it both ways, though I'm sure you're happy enough to join the celebrations regardless.

    The four categories for awards are:
    Best Game Master
    Best Role Player
    Best Role Playing Game
    Best New Role Playing Game

    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' pursuit. Members will have seven (7) days to PM their 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.

    Please refrain from nominating any of the games/players above.

    Please 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

    Yes, the part you've all been waiting for.

    :( I like the pink. It is very summer-y.

    I have two nominations for BEST ROLE PLAYER, both from from Galaxy at War III:

    Ominous (General Praetorian Darkeyes)- singelhandedly keeps an entire faction going in an exciting way.

    and

    Mortimer_Nerdly (General Greievous)his version of GG is immensely interesting and his method of putting it into words is great!

    There are a few past winners who I'm sure deserve to be nominated again but alas, they can not!

    NP is right, pink is very much a summer color... along with orange and lime green......



    I also have nominations from Galaxy at War II:

    For best GM: Pashatamur... because, well... she's amazing.

    For Best RPer: Kalio_Dynkos. His range of characters in the game is... well, amazing. And his attention to detail is above and beyond most RPers here. His characters seem too real... and I sware, if I didn't know better, I'd go looking for these people.

    Then, from the RPF I'd like to nomitate from Xavier's Institue:

    First of all I have to nomitate the game itself. It is going amazingly well, with not just one major character, but many detailed and believable characters. Xavier's Insitute for Higher Leraning: Path of Heros's for best RPG.

    Then my Second nomitation for Best RPer: HunterPrime. I love HP's posts. They're just... very well done.


    That's all I got.

    Good Luck to All

    Best Game Master: I think Dubya_Scott is up for another go at it. For both 007-Style AND Exiles.

    Best Role Player : Other than Myself :p I think I'll go with BSSL (BartSimpson_SithLord) and SephyCloneNo15

    Best Role Playing Game : Decisions Decisions. Well, Dr. Noah (Star Wars, 007-Style) gets it for SWRP and X-men is already nominated.


    Best New Role Playing Game : Dr. Noah and Pirates of the Carribean III: At Worlds End. I know that last nomination is a bit early, but I think that, being as it bears the Imperial Hammer name, it should do well.

    Concerning the pink: I agree that it is very summer-y and feminine :p

    Concerning the 'All Star Awards': We're going to leave them out this time 'round so as to give members a chance to grow more familiar and comfortable with the idea of awards being held across two forums in this new format. New All Star Awards will be considered for addition and/or revision in the next season's festivities.

    I've got a question regarding the "categories for each forum" thing...

    If a player or GM is nominated in both forums, what happens if he or she receives the most votes in both forums? They have the most votes in both, but they can't win both. What happens then?

    This thought just occured to me because I GM games in each forum, and it looks like DVC just nominated me for both of my games...

    :confused:

    Most people vote for two different GMs (one in each forum.) I don't think that would ever happen.

    I will sumbit a nomination for Best Roleplayer, also from GAW III.

    LordDarthUmbrus, for an utterly flawless portrayal of Darth Sidious and enticing reads with every post. And not just for the said Dark Lord of the Sith. He has done superlative jobs with Darth Revan, Darth Traya, Chewbacca, the list goes on. Too, I have been more than enthralled with his masterfully designed original characters. It has truly been a pleasure to behold his creativity.

    Well, while those are well-deserved words of praise for him, he won last season, so he's not up on the block this time. Perhaps there's someone else in GAW you'd like to spotlight?

    Naboo, you do have to be open to the possiblility that once Imp gets his chance again, he could win it in both places. What'll you do then?

    Obviously a person can only win one forum. Whichever forum they have the most votes in, they win. The other forum would go to whoever placed second. But seriously, it's not even worth worrying about because it won't happen.

    Rainbow Sherbert! Doesn't get much more summery than that.

    Thanks for the nom, DVC. I'll nominate Master-Korr for his rather interesting character of Bo "Blackjack" Black in Xavier's, although I could just be a sucker for well-written accents.

    Perhaps a bit early, but I've got a feeling that The Return to Blood Gulch: Red Vs. Blue will be at one of the extreme ends of the spectrum of RPing. I nominate it in the hope that it will end up on the really good end of the Spectrum rather than the really bad.

    Best Role Player

    ArgenPalos
    Kalio_Dynkos
    Mortimer_Nerdly
    Ominous
    sithstarslayer

    Adding to this list of fantastic players I have been priveleged to work with

    I add

    * master-of-les-pauls
    - For peerless presentation of Master Luke, C'baoth, et. al. MOLP's endearing take on
    Young Luke is easy for a certain female Zabrak Jedi to fall in love with.

    * HanSolo29
    - The handle is the name and the name is the person behind it. She is Han Solo.

    * Nefertiti
    - Ever she moves me with her deeply insightful posts. Lush and sexy, her characters are
    Real in every sense of the word.

    * MASTER-OF-EVIL
    - A bright light of imagination that should no longer go overlooked.

    * LeiaHair
    - What else is there to say. Princess Marion is the most beautiful red-head I've ever
    had the pleasure of frightening half to death.

    * Sith-I-5
    - Your quirky wit delights me with each post

    * She has won many times before because she deserves it as no one can match Pashatamur's Darth Vader and Lady Vader. I am forever humbled by the depth of feeling and intelligence in her writing. I am always challanged to put out my best because of what she writes. She is a rare talent and I am very fortunate that she introduced me to this forum to work with her.

    Best Game Master

    * MASTER-OF-EVIL (A study in perseverance and imagination)
    * Pashatamur (but of couse since she has already been nominated, this is just my two cents. She is my Master.)

    Best Game

    * The War of the Sith : Beginning of the War
    * The Galaxy at War - The Schism of the Sith (won already once, but I can't help but to nominate anyways :p)

    Best New Game (I second, third, fourth or eighteenth this)

    * Dr. Noah Star Wars - 007 Style (gotta love the 007 series!)
