Requested and Approved by @Corellian_Outrider & @Sinrebirth --- *waves enthusiastically* Hello to all of the wonderfully creative players, game masters, moderating staff, and lurkers of the JCF Role Playing Forum, and welcome to the Fall 2019 RPF Awards! My name is Sabe, as some of you know, and I have been asked to take over hosting duties by the powers that be - a BIG shout-out and thank you to our very own @Darth_wanderguard for his previous years of service. *applause* Ok, so let’s get to it, shall we? I know a lot of you already know the rules but I'll run through them again for the new guys – or you oldbies that have recently found your way back to us. First – We will have a 2 week public nomination period wherein you will post your nominations for the awards listed below in this thread for all to see! Please choose only one user per category. The top 5 (if there are less than 5, all nominated will be up to win) will then be announced in each category and we move on to Part 2. Second – We will then have a 2 week secret voting period. This is where you make your selection among the chosen nominees for each award and send your votes to me privately, via PM. After this period ends, votes will be tallied and winners announced! **In case of a TIE for one of, or the final spot in a category for nominations: How many awards either candidate has already been chosen for will factor into breaking the tie, and the user with the least will be favored. **You do not have to nominate/vote in every category listed below, but it is encouraged. Prizes: The winners of the “Best Roleplayer” and “Best GM” awards will get a month of colors, and winner of “Best RPG” will get to add that designation to the thread title of the game. The rest, well you get your bragging rights among your peers. To wrap up, these awards are a great way to celebrate everyone who participates in this forum in any capacity, as you are all what keeps this community alive and well! I look forward to seeing many of you recognized for your achievements in storytelling. And now, without further ado, I present… The Awards - "Best" Awards: Best Roleplayer Best GM Best RPG Best Original Character Best Interpretation of a Canon Character "Most" Awards: Most Promising New Roleplayer Most Expansive Vocabulary Most Humorous GM Most Unpredictable GM Most Unsavory Original/Canon Character Most Entertaining Duo/Group Most Heartbreaking Death Special Category Awards: The “Split” – For the rolelplayer that is involved in several active games with different characters. So many, in fact, that you do not know how they keep all their personalities straight! The “George RR Martin” – For the GM that likes to kill. Everyone. A lot. Especially those lovely NPCs you get overly attached to. The “Straight Shooter” - For the player and/or GM that that is known for keeping their posts short, but sweet.
