    Dun dun dun... I thought I would never see the day... :p

    Alrighty well here we go:

    "Best" Awards:

    Best GM: Gonna have to go with the ultimate mad man @Sinrebirth, the consistent, fast-paced games he runs have me on the edge of my seat.
    Best RPG: There were two games I am particularly torn between but I think I'm gonna have to go with Genesis Gate by @Darth_Elu. The possibilities in that game have me very excited and any excuse to play more of the Patriarch is a welcome one. :D
    Best Original Character: Ergh lame I know but I could not narrow it down to one, if I narrow it down before the end of the deadline I'll edit one in... sorry lol
    Best Interpretation of a Canon Character: Rey (@QueenSabe7) in Episode X

    "Most" Awards:

    Most Promising New Roleplayer: Define 'new' lol... While still breaking into the scene @Narancia is a gifted player and I hope to see more from him in the future.
    Most Expansive Vocabulary: @greyjedi125 I'll never forget 'Hieratic Scale of Hematic Principalities' my goodness lol...
    Most Humorous GM: @Sinrebirth mainly for the banter surrounding the games he runs lol
    Most Unpredictable GM: @darthbernael While I've been able to guess a couple of things that are happening in The Final Game. The amount of twists and turns in that game is astounding and the clear end goal of the game has become greatly muddled in a very awesome way.
    Most Likable Original/Canon Character: Ayira by @spacelady... for errr... reasons... :p :D
    Most Unsavory Original/Canon Character: Kaynus played by @Master Vo'Un'Var the walking definition of a spoiled brat (Kaynus I mean not Vo lol :p), every line brims with sheer glorious pompousness and annoyance.
    Most Entertaining Duo/Group: Jam (@The Jedi in the Pumas) and Maez (@greyjedi125) Wanna know what happens when you put a Saiyan and an Orc together... sheer and utter chaos... you can start here if you wish.
    Most Heartbreaking Death: Oh my sweet, sweet Isha (@Kurisan) I'll avenge your death or bring you back to life, or something!

    The “Split”@galactic-vagabond422 The range of his characters is nuts from the meek to the bloodthirsty. To the drunken pirate to the weary pilot. An amazing spectrum of characters.

    The “George RR Martin” – Well even though he was not the one to kill them by his hand he still allowed it to happen. @darthbernael letting Sinre kill oh what? Five gods? (Including himself) So yeah...

    The “Straight Shooter” - Hmm.... I think I am going to have to go with @The Jedi in the Pumas playing as Jam, the posts are not the longest in the world (yeah the big font helps mask that... :p) but a joy to read each and every time.

    The “Princess and the Scoundrel” - The bond that has been shown between Ma'at and Samhain (boo! :p) played by @greyjedi125 and @Sinrebirth respectively I thought was excellent. Shame Samhain had to ruin it all... lol

    "Best" Awards:

    Best Roleplayer: @Adalia-Durron - seriously, she runs so many characters. I have a lot of NPCs across games but her level of retention is incredible. Her appearances as Zara in Black Squadron and Adalia Tehanis in Last Stand have been sublime fun.
    Best GM: I am going with @darthbernael if only because he managed to get me hanging on the edge of my seat with Selenia. I am not the best player (shush), and if you take me outside of Star Wars my attention span narrows considerably! I'm terrible, I know.
    Best RPG: Oh this has to be Genesis Gate by @Darth_Elu. This is insane. I have no idea what is happening and it is TEASING ME.
    Best Original Character: Patriarch by @Shadowsun. Moody smart snob. 'Nuf said.
    Best Interpretation of a Canon Character: Rey Skywalker (@QueenSabe7) in Episode X. Seriously; love her.

    "Most" Awards:

    Most Promising New Roleplayer: New to me, newly back to the forums - @CosmoHender in Episode X as Barriss Ofee. Seriously, these are the most fun posts and his interpretation of her is completely surprising me and I can see it which is brill.
    Most Expansive Vocabulary: If @Mitth_Fisto makes me stop writing a game update to go look up a word one more time!
    Most Humorous GM: Definitely @Darth_Elu because the community around Genesis Gate is just so fun and he really throws out the most hilarious interactions.
    Most Unpredictable GM: I'm going for @darthbernael here, because he's letting me get away with literal murder in Selenia.
    Most Likable Original/Canon Character: I admit to enjoying how much I love to hate Dol Khan played by @The Jedi in the Pumas.
    Most Unsavory Original/Canon Character:
    Have you seen half the sketchy things that @HanSolo29 gets up to as Aryan Graul? In Twilight of the Force II and Episode X. Seriously. Bad Karma and not once does he blame himself! Never! I worry for HanSolo29 some days. I really do.
    Most Entertaining Duo/Group: I have rather enjoyed the cantankerous nature of Xundel by @darthbernael and Madelyn by @TheSilentInfluence. It's been a real treat seeing two old old old people smart at each other.
    Most Heartbreaking Death: Isha played by @Kurisan.

    The “Split”@galactic-vagabond422 because I really have to mention how he rolls from moody God in Selenia to sucker-punch gut emotional feel as Rhoen in Episode X.

    The “George RR Martin” – I have never killed so many PCs as I have under @darthbernael in Selenia. It is FUN.

    The “Straight Shooter” - I mean, it's @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha here, every time. chuckles.

    The “Princess and the Scoundrel” - This is an easy one for me - @Jerjerrod-Lennox and @JediMasterAnne as Pascale and Feyna in Resurrection. Seriously; look them up. NOW.

    "Best" Awards:

    Best Roleplayer - @Shadowsun, whether in SW RPs or not, he always seems to have great ideas and interest in how or where his character develops.

    Best GM - @Sinrebirth, How he keeps track of every game he runs, all the NPCs involved in each, as well as the web that connects most of them, feeding tidbits for various games into others is a gift.

    Best RPG - Star Wars: Episode X: Duel of the Fates, it already seeming epic and just keeps building

    Best Original Character - @galactic-vagabond422 for Malagath the Black, He convinced me that this character would be a good fit for the game before it even began and he has proven right in his argument.

    Best Interpretation of a Canon Character - @QueenSabe7 for Rey, She has captured the essence of Rey and you can see and feel it in how she writes her.

    "Most" Awards:

    Most Promising New Roleplayer - @CosmoHender, Honestly there were a couple choices here and it was a very close decision. Cosmo has such enthusiasm, excitement, and verve in writing and just wants to keep pushing forward, it is very good to see.

    Most Expansive Vocabulary - @greyjedi125, It is as though he sits there and flips through the dictionary going “Ahhh yes, this word or phrase will be such fun to use” and they really do fit.

    Most Humorous GM - @Sinrebirth, as said before, because of the OOC around all his games, keeps them fun and upbeat.

    Most Unpredictable GM - @The Jedi in the Pumas, I always enjoy when a new update comes out because it isn’t always the direction I would have thought he’d be taking something and yet it works and leads in great directions.

    Most Likable Original/Canon Character - @Adalia-Durron for Zara Chrischa In Black Squadron: The Last Mission, She plays her with such realism, easiest way to put it.

    Most Unsavory Original/Canon Character - OC - @Sinrebirth for Samhain, The Final Game: A Story of Selenia

    Most Entertaining Duo/Group - @Shadowsun and @Kurisan for Nyruel and Sarathai in Story of Selenia

    Most Heartbreaking Death - @Kurisan as Isha in Story of Selenia

    Special Category Awards:

    The “Split”@TheSilentInfluence. One I wish I could have gotten in my game, all over, in many stories.

    The “George RR Martin”@Bardan_Jusik, He has had such fun, over the years especially, destroying property, places, and people as he’s run Black Sheep.

    The “Straight Shooter” - @Ktala, while Ktala can write long, flowing, descriptive posts, the usual ones, while not always pages and pages are very well worth the read.

    The “Princess and the Scoundrel” – Syal and Rhoen Aquilla, @Sinrebirth and @galactic-vagabond422 in Star Wars Episode X: Duel of the Fates

    Hard to choose between so many great people, also some have already been mentioned so wanted to include people and games that I feel deserve recognition as well :)

    Best RPer: @Mistress_Renata - for Delphi in The Encroaching Madness (and her earlier incarnation in The Calm Before the Storm) and Max the Black Sheep's resident paranoid :D
    Best GM: @Bravo - for The Kingdom and Paradoxical Echoes, the sheer amount of work and the details
    Best RPG: @Bardan_Jusik 's Black Sheep - it is the closest thing to the classic Rogue and Wraith Squadron novels
    Best Original Character: @Bodhran777 's Sergeant Major (retired) Jack “Jackie” King from The Encroaching Madness, an excellent twist on lycantropy by having a were-croc ;)
    Best Interpretation of a Canon Character: @Corellian_Outrider 's rendition of Ahsoka Tano in the Galaxy at War series, closest to Filoni's vision of her

    Most Unsavory Original/Canon Character: @The Real Kyp Durron 's Saxon Hollymander from the Black Sheep, he was straight out evil
    Most Entertaining Duo/Group: @Sarge 's Riki and Tiki from the Black Sheep - very distinct and funny characters (also to spite @Sinrebirth 's Traer :p )
    Most Heartbreaking Death: @Jerjerrod-Lennox 's Devereaux Bombardier from the Black Squadron, even though I am not in the game the character's death had impact

    The “Princess and the Scoundrel”: @Vehn for Lou and Airen's romance in the Black Sheep and the adversities they have faced

    "Best" Awards:

    • Best Roleplayer --- @TheSilentInfluence :TSI has had a constant, ever evolving character ( Elena Shan ) in both Paradoxical Echoes and The Kingdom. Its been a joy to RP with her almost exclusively with my own character, Animal. And I think both characters have grown and evolved because of this consistent interaction. Its been a great joy. I don't think TSI gets enough credit for the thorough role player job she does with, at least in my two games, Elena Shan. It takes great detail and hard work to stay consistent with a character for any length of time.
    • Best GM --- @Bardan_Jusik : Jusik always seems to have a game. Something for someone to latch onto, dive into. It doesn't matter if its page 1 or page 2, there's a game that's working itself through the daily bump up and down cycle of the boards. His games don't seem too many and you don't get the overcrowded feeling---you get that just right amount for it to always spark my interest.
    • Best RPG --- I haven't had a chance to really look at other games to give an honest review..... [face_nail_biting][face_nail_biting][face_nail_biting]
    • Best Interpretation of a Canon Character --- I haven't had a chance to really look at other games to give an honest review..... [face_nail_biting][face_nail_biting][face_nail_biting]

    "Best" Awards:

    • Best Roleplayer: @Vehn From Limmie through Black Sheep, Kain's Heroes, the Intervention franchise and countless more, Vehn always creates wonderfully rich characters that are beautifully written.
    • Best GM: @Trieste His GMing of the ELL sets the standard by which all other GMs are judged, at least by me anyway.
    • Best RPG: Elite League Limmie: It's unique, it blends sports and Star Wars and players can go with pretty much any storyline they can think of to fit within it. Despite that (or maybe because of it) it has resisted any and all attempts to "break" the game, and believe me, there have been more than a few.
    • Best Original Character: Trieste's Lyndsey and Artemis Cash (because the two are like totally inseparable) These were a hilarious pair and engrossing read watching them learn to become the best hydration specialists they could possibly be in the ELL. Oh yeah, and they became bounty hunters too.
    • Best Interpretation of a Canon Character: Haven't seen too many of these lately, just not reading the right games I guess. :p


    "Most" Awards:

    • Most Promising New Roleplayer: No nomination
    • Most Expansive Vocabulary: No nomination
    • Most Humorous GM: Trieste
    • Most Unpredictable GM: Trieste, the random number generator helps with this a bit. Hey can I nominate the number generator? :p
    • Most Likable Original/Canon Character: It's nigh on impossible not to like @darthbernael's Finnfrael Ordwgal from Black Sheep, though it is nearly impossible to spell it correctly.
    • Most Unsavory Original/Canon Character: Sinre's "Master", various incarnations.
    • Most Entertaining Duo/Group: The entire cast of The Black Sheep. The original group that started this game is fantastic, and even as other players have come and gone and new ones added to the mix every one seems to integrate well and be welcomed by those who came before so as one can't even tell who has been here all along and who is posting for the first time in the game. Just a wonderful experience GMing this game with this group of players.
    • Most Heartbreaking Death: @Sarge 's Riki and Tiki from Black Sheep. These guys were too funny to be killed off like that!


    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! @galactic-vagabond422, I have no idea how he keeps up with all his various characters.
    • The “George RR Martin” – For the GM that likes to kill. Everyone. A lot. Especially those lovely NPCs you get overly attached to. No nomination
    • The “Straight Shooter” - For the player and/or GM that that is known for keeping their posts short, but sweet. @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha, enough said. :p
    • The “Princess and the Scoundrel” – This is for all the lovers out there, the best romantic pairing between any characters/droids/wampas/etc. Once again, Sarge's Kayn Balzroth and his total love affair with himself.

    Best RPG: Saga of the Ryujin - @Shadowsun has a wonderful gem here that deserves all the accolades! The story, the world, the flow! Delish! ;)
    Best Original Character: UGH! This is an insanely difficult one........I'm gonna say *hems and haws for a while longer* Ayira from Genesis Gate by @spacelady Granted, I have lots of background knowledge of this character, but nevertheless a deep one who is well written and deserves even more attention than she's gotten :D
    Best Interpretation of a Canon Character: Another tough one, but I'm going to just barely lean toward...Daisy Johnson/Quake from Marvel: A New Breed by @greyjedi125 Very well done, I think! :cool:


    "Most" Awards:

    Most Promising New Roleplayer: @Narancia For reasons already outlined by others. ;)
    Most Expansive Vocabulary: @Mitth_Fisto Going to agree with this nomination. :)
    Most Humorous GM: @Shadowsun For certain situations and scenes and how they're presented...plus Zalzabar alone is hilarious! :p

    Most Likable Original/Canon Character: Psion aka Zephyr Vaillancourt in Marvel: A New Breed by @Ameteth Amazingly written with a load of 'Good Guy Charm.' [face_peace]
    Most Unsavory Original/Canon Character: Master Xian Nin in Things We Lost in the Fire by @greyjedi125 Varayik still does not like this man! Hmph. Nope. Not at all! :p
    Most Entertaining Duo/Group: The entire party/cast of Saga of the Ryujin, comprising characters from myself, @Shadowsun, @greyjedi125, @The Jedi in the Pumas, @Master Vo'Un'Var, @galactic-vagabond422, @Mitth_Fisto, @Ktala, & @Kurisan ....Just too good!
    Most Heartbreaking Death: Audacia and Veritas in Saga of the Ryujin, both by @Shadowsun. Noooo! Come back and train Cretaus! :_| :p


    Special Category Awards:

    The “Split”@galactic-vagabond422 Going to agree with this nomination, very much. A transcendent talent if there ever was one. :)

    The “George RR Martin”@darthbernael Not in his game, but by the sight and sound of it...It's KWAZEE ALL UP IN DERE! 8-}

    The “Straight Shooter” - @TheAdmiral Not always the longest posts here, but always good. No denying that. ;) Bang. Keep shootin', Admiral! [face_cowboy]

    The “Princess and the Scoundrel”Flying Officers Turr Kya and Saraali Deatar in The Kingdom by @Sinrebirth and myself. What? We all know its gonna happen, I mean, they're just so perfectly Impish together. In their own, specially radical way. [face_laugh] :tie:

    Best Original Character: Chancellor Feyna Organa, as portrayed by @JediMasterAnne (Star Wars Episode VIII: Twilight of the Force: A Father's Fate)

    We’re working on how to get through the nomination stage as we had a lot of singular nominations. Which means C_O nominating and then us managing ties even after that.

    *dusts off mic*

    Hello all! *ahem* I must offer my sincerest apologies for the lengthy delay in bringing you the final set of nominees for the Spring 2021 RPF Awards. But at last I can say that along with the extremely helpful input of @Corellian_Outrider, @Sinrebirth, and @Adalia-Durron , we have been able to narrow the vast nomination pool to our lucky few.

    Watch this space - the completed list will go up tomorrow, Friday 05/28, and the 2-week private voting period will commence.

    Thank you ALL for your patience.

    Hello, folks! And welcome back to the Spring 2021 RPF Awards!! :D

    *tired applause*

    I know, I know... I am not going to sugarcoat anything and straight up tell you all that narrowing down the nominations was a doozy this time around. So many exceptional role-players were honored and it took A LOT of time and finagling in order to present you with the list below. PLEASE NOTE: As of today, the 2-week Private Voting Period begins and will run until 12AM midnight EST on Friday, June 11th. Once you have chosen no more than ONE nominee in each category, please PM me and Sinrebirth directly with your selections.

    A reminder for Prizes: The winners of the “Best Roleplayer” and “Best GM” awards will get a month of colors, and the 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 for as long as you feel necessary.

    A Special Note from your RPF Mods and Awards Host -

    We can only apologise for the delay, the Moderators and host had quite a brutal argument back and forth on how the nominations would go forward, especially as we had many singular nominations. So, on that basis, we have leveraged multiple nominations against singular ones to try and increase the variety of options, but we reached the Straight Shooter category and were unable to decide between the three that were tied. As such, the Straight Shooter will be (for this time) expanded to five options! Congrats to Pumas, Silent and the Admiral for being such impossibly high quality nominations.

    ---

    Best of luck to all the nominees!! [face_party][face_peace]
