    Welcome ladies and gentlemen, roleplayers and GMs, mods and users alike, to the RPF Awards - Winter 2018 Edition!


    I am your dashing host, Darth_wanderguard, and it is my pleasure and privilege to bring yet another installment of these awards meant to celebrate the lifeblood of this community - YOU!



    How do the awards work?


    The awards are a two-step process. The first step is a public ballot nomination period which will last for two weeks. After the nomination period is done, the three candidates with the most nominations for each award will be presented as nominees. In the case of a tie to determine one or more spots, candidates who are tied are considered semi-finalists. Each candidate is counted as to how many awards for which they are either a finalist or semi-finalist. The candidates with the least are favored for tie-breaking purposes. Failing that, I as host retain a tie breaking vote since I do not nominate or vote under normal circumstances.


    A two-week secret voting period will then commence in which your votes will be cast via PM to the awards host. After the polls have closed, the winners will be announced and prizes awarded.



    What are the prizes?


    The winners of the Best Roleplayer and Best GM awards will receive colors for one month! The game which wins the Best RPG award will have the option of displaying ***Voted Best RPG Winter 2018*** in its thread title.



    What are the awards?


    "Best" Awards:


    Best Roleplayer

    Best GM

    Best RPG

    Best Original Character

    Best Individual Post

    Best Combo Post



    "Most" Awards:

    Most Promising New Roleplayer

    Most Expansive Vocabulary

    Most Humorous GM

    Most Unpredictable GM

    Most Likable Original Character

    Most Unsavory Original Character



    So how do I vote?


    It's simple! Just post your list of nominations in-thread, and wait for the successful nominees to be announced. Then, PM your votes to the host and be sure to check back in for the ceremony once the voting period is over.



    Who is eligible?


    Players must be currently active in the RPF to receive nominations. A game must be currently active *when the awards begin* to be eligible for Best RPG. You cannot nominate yourself. You can vote for yourself.


    Individuals may not win Best Roleplayer or Best GM consecutively. As of this edition, HanSolo29 is currently ineligible for Best Roleplayer, and Sinrebirth is currently ineligible for Best GM.


    If you have nominated incorrectly you will be given notice and an opportunity to change your selections. You may only change selections which were invalid - the rest of your nomination ballot is locked in.

    Your favorite players, GMs, characters, and games will NOT win without your support, SO GET NOMINATING!

    Best Roleplayer

    SirakRomar - For making Ayshe in the Crossing the single most manipulative and brilliant villain (or is she the true hero?) I have ever seen here.

    Best GM

    Bravo - To be honest his games were never among my favourites, never joined one ... also they are always well crafted and good stories ... but lately I stumbled over how long Bravo has been around here and man, what freshmen we all are compared to him! What a "career" as a GM!

    Best RPG

    The Crossing - Because it is ... Go read yourself. Don't wanna spoil any of the twists and turns this tale took ...

    Best Original Character

    Kurt Roland - The hyper-religious, conservative fool of an US President who falls under the sway of an evil woman who can see the future ... man, HanSolo29 gets better and better with him ...

    Best Individual Post

    Need to read a bit for that one

    Best Combo Post

    Need to read a lot for this one ...

    Love all of my fellow RPers. [:D] As always, these nominations were quite difficult!

    ____

    "Best" Awards:

    Best Roleplayer: @Lady Belligerent
    All of the characters she is in charge of and how individually unique each one is from the others.. well done. =D=

    Best GM: @Darth_wanderguard
    ^:)^

    Best RPG: The New Sith Trials II: Rise of the Hand
    I'm biased, hardcore... but this game series is simply THE BEST.

    Best Original Character: Darth Kronos, as written by @Darth Kronos
    I said this during the last round of awards, but Kronos has grown so much as a character and continues to do so. Masterfully written. =D=

    Best Individual Post: All the @Csilla Informer posts, as written by whomever the hell runs the account.
    [face_rofl]

    Best Combo Post: Anything Hel/Haretisch related, as portrayed by Lady Belligerent and Darth_wanderguard, respectively.
    Love the evolving dynamic between these two characters, both only just getting to know one another. Very intriguing to follow.

    Best Roleplayer:
    @galactic-vagabond422 – no stranger to the RPF, his characters are always a pleasure to read; well-developed and engaging. Nicely done! =D=

    Best GM:
    @LordTroepfchen – this guy knows how to tell a story. Seriously. ^:)^

    Best RPG:
    The Crossing – an intriguing thriller; the story keeps getting better and better with each update.

    Best Original Character:
    LEGO/Sebastian Klein as portrayed by @DarkLordoftheFins in The Crossing – the very definition of the reluctant hero; Fins has done a great job capturing the pitfalls and triumphs of someone trying to deal with extraordinary circumstances. Amazing work all around! =D=

    Best Individual Post:

    Syren's night out, as written by @QueenSabe7 in The New Sith Trials II – this was such a fun read, plus it was the perfect setup for an unlikely union later on [face_mischief]

    Best Combo Post:
    Ayshe's grand reveal, as written by @SirakRomar and LordTroepfchen in The Crossing – this revelation still gives me chills. :eek:

    I wish to to change my 'Best Roleplayer' nomination from Belligerent to @Darth Kronos.

    :p

    Seriously though, I already voted for Lady B. in another category and Darth Kronos is deserving, anyway.
