    This was very tough for me, but in the end, here are my nominations at last. Fashionably late. ;)

    ****
    Best Role Player ~ @galactic-vagabond422 He's deserved this award much sooner. What he can do with his characters has been consistently elite quality throughout the years of the RPF and it's high time he's recognized for it.

    Best GM ~ @greyjedi125 A legend among GMs and none can persuade me otherwise. Just peruse his game history and stack those GM accomplishments high. It'll be a mountain, I'm sure.

    Best Star Wars Game ~ Episode X: End of Harmony An amazing game that I haven't been part of for very long, but already getting a powerful scene in a very cinematically created storytelling format. Hats off to you @LordTroepfchen!

    Best Non-Star Wars Game ~ The Yakuza: Territory War by @Master Vo'Un'Var. This game has great quality right from the start and its potential is spine-tingling good. Keep it up, my friend!

    Best Post by a Role Player ~ This one took me a long time to decide. There's just so much. But in the end, I decided on a post or rather, an update in Marvel: A New Breed by, once again, The great @greyjedi125! The scene that changed everything.


    Most Entertaining GM ~ @The Jedi in the Pumas His wit, tempo of updates, and overall style of humor, professionalism, and keeping all engaged gets him here.

    Most Educational Member of the RPF ~ @greyjedi125 Not trying to be a broken record here, but yeah. Look at the history. If you guys only knew what he knew, especially regarding Marvel. Heck, if only I knew what he knew! :p

    Most Frightening Character ~ Rumi the Sandbender from Things We Lost in the Fire created by @The Jedi in the Pumas. He tries so hard to be good, but the kid's a bomb ready to go off and when he does...it won't be pretty. Too young to have so much power.

    Most Humorous Character ~ The Jam from Genesis Gate. Once again played by @The Jedi in the Pumas. I'm pretty sure he IS the game's humor at this point in time. Every word that comes out of that orc's mouth is just pure gold. It's been fun having the big name NPC's react to him.

    Most Accurate Portrayal of a Canon Character ~ Daken Akihiro from Marvel: A New Breed. Played by the great @darthbernael. He's perfectly captured the essence of Daken. It feels like I'm reading him written by Daniel Way (the original creator of the character)!

    Most Impressive NPC in a Game ~ Ryutaro Himura from The Yakuza: Territory War. His little 'Welcome to the Yakuza' scene with @greyjedi125's Kenshi was amazing. @Master Vo'Un'Var captured the feeling of a Yakuza Oyabun perfectly. Can't wait to see more of him.

    "Best" Awards:

    Best Roleplayer: @Kurisan They're rather new to the RPF but they jumped in with both feet and took the place by storm, even GMing a game almost right out of the gate.
    Best GM: @Trieste The commissioner supreme of the ELL, the steady hand that has kept the scores coming out weekly and keeping this little world spinning. Also for letting me branch out with my storytelling.
    Best Star Wars Game: Elite League Limmie The game that got me back into RPing and I have never looked back since.
    Best Non-Star Wars Game: Marvel Heroes: New Breed This game lets me play two characters that I created in high school and have loved. This game gives me a world to let them run wild in and do what they do best. Scenery chewing heroics and over dramatic tension.
    Best Post by a Roleplayer (please quote the post): N/A

    "Most" Awards:

    Most Entertaining GM: @The Jedi in the Pumas
    Most Educational Member of the RPF: @Sinrebirth
    Most Frightening Character : Darth Zorn by @LordTroepfchen He destroyed my character's planet, she hasn't forgotten.
    Most Humorous Character: Jam @The Jedi in the Pumas CAN YOU SMELL WHAT JAM IS COOKING.
    Most Accurate Portrayal of a Canon Character
    Most impressive NPC in a game: Harley "Wild Card" Quin Impressive in the fact that she is an NPC in a @Bardan_Jusik game and she is still alive.

    I’m gonna make some nominations for folks and games that haven’t been mentioned yet, but absolutely deserve to be.

    Best Roleplayer: @Mistress_Renata. Her posts are just a joy to read, from her prose to the meticulous details within. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her work as Lizzy Brewer, a Native American woman returning to her childhood home in Blood Moon Gulch, and now as Delfina in The Calm Before the Storm.

    Best Star Wars Game: The Last Cop in the Galaxy. A small, slow burn supernatural crime drama, and The Jedi in the Puma’s underappreciated gem. I can’t wait to see where it goes, no matter how long it takes us to get there.

    Best Non-Star Wars Game: The Strange Case of Ethan Carter. @Sir_Draco has begun to weave a mystery that I’m anxious to see unfold, and it’s given me an opportunity to play Tom Hardy as Dr. Watson, which has been a joy thus far.

    Most Educational Member of the RPF: @Imperial_Hammer. Even if you ignore his illustrious history in the RPF, just look at the work he’s doing in these Resource Forums and it’s tough to argue with his merit for this award. The RPF is a better place when he’s in it.

    Most Accurate Portrayal of a Canon Character: @LordTroepfchen’s portrayal of Sherlock Holmes in The Strange Case of Ethan Carter has been a lot of fun to interact with in the brief time we’ve had thus far. Great portrayal.

    Most impressive NPC in a game: Mr. Know-It-All in The Last Cop in the Galaxy. I love this dude, and I want more of him. Eerily compelling. Another of @The Jedi in the Pumas’ fine creations.

    "Best" Awards:

    Best Roleplayer: @greyjedi125 really stood out for me playing as Pro-XE in Fall of Elyseum, as well as Manticore in Dark Reach.
    Best Star Wars Game: The Fall of Elyseum, by @LordTroepfchen

    "Most" Awards:
    Most Educational Memeber: @Sith-I-5
    Most Frightening Character: @darthbernael as Darth Bernael, both in Twilight and Dark Reach *shudder*
    Most Humorous Character: THE GREAT AND ILLUSTRIOUS JAM by @The Jedi in the Pumas in Genesis Gate

    Things we lost in the fire



    Best Post

    Justin Pfeiffer in The Seeking by @Sir_Draco

    Justin Pfeiffer
    His flat, Zürich


    He spend the night drinking and smoking cigars. Quitting smoking had been the hardest part, he felt. The hardest part of them all.

    He remembered. He remembered so clearly.

    The green. The loneliness. Julia. He smiled and took a sip from his Whisky.

    Finally he went to his LapTop and opened the document he had been working on. He could hardly rely on Saori Nishimura, the woman who seemed so badly out of her water. He regretted having called her. She would have deserved to be left in the dark. The Source had shoved her into the deepest depth of this muddy pond that was the world.

    Save the Cheerleader, save the world.

    He laughed. As if it was that easy.
    With shaky legs he went over to his bedroom and opened the cabinet doors. He stumbled inside and looked at the giant artwork, ripped from a wall in Berlin and integrated into his flat.

    The Archangel.

    The final piece of LEGO.



    „Oh what a joke.“ He said and fell to his knees. He went to his bed, downing what remained of his whisky and looked at the picture. „Seriously, what did you get me here for, hm? What the hell was I meant to do? Watch it all happen again? Hell, you picked the wrong guy, really. I am not gonna sit around in my luxury suite and do that. No. If you hide, so be it. I will go to war alone.“

    He got up and went to his laptop. He had worked on implementing the marketing tool all night, but finally he had it. Sending the message, it was send two twitter, a thousand facebook accounts, blogs, message services, push passages and every channel he found. The message was simple.

    TO ALL GIFTED. THEY ARE GONNA TAKE YOUR GIFTS!

    He smiled, let his neck crack. The message was anonymous, but sooner or later someone would follow it to him and then he would be in trouble. Did not matter. If trouble did not find him, he was ready to go after trouble.

    Berlin. Flight in the morning.


    The Jam in Genesis Gate by @The Jedi in the Pumas

    Jam had been drunk before. This didn't feel like being drunk.

    He stood.

    Bones aching and his skin sore. He was hungry.

    And there was some man asking them for introductions. Them?? Oh. The other people there. Jam did not approve of any of them. Something about how tiny they were. It bothered him.

    He looked at the man and shouted.

    "THE NAME IS JAM. THE JAM. CONQUEROR OF..." He couldn't remember. The words had come out of the Jam's mouth by muscle, instinctive memory, but he had no thought behind it. He'd try again.

    "MY NAME IS JAM... THE JAM OF..." Nope... Still nothing. Jam was confused now and he hated being confused. Right? Most beings didn't like being confused.

    Jam scratched his head.

    "THE JAM DOESN'T REMEMBER WHAT HE IS CONQUEROR OF... BUT THE JAM DOESN'T NEED TO REMEMBER. WHAT THE JAM NEEDS IS ANSWERS"


    Jiao Yuan in Yakuza by @galactic-vagabond422

    Jiao Yuan
    Yuan Family Tea House, Lower Ring

    Even as everything was happening around them Jiao did not let go of her brother. Water whips were thrown, unrestrained fireballs were let loose but she never let go. She didn't know when or if she would see the rest of her family, this was the final time, she wasn't going to miss a moment. With her brother's hands bound all he could do was brush his cheek against hers, the stubble of a week old beard rubbed against her skin.

    "I know Jiao." His voice cracked under the emotion welling in his chest. "I'm glad we got this moment."

    "I'm not...I'm not letting go…"

    "You have to sis...I don't want you getting involved in this."

    "You've done nothing wrong." She could feel his tears soaking into the fabric of his blindfold. "Nothing..." Her voice was nearly gone, broken under the immense pain in her heart.

    "They will paint you with the same brush. We can't lose you." Feng pressed his chin into her shoulder letting out a shaking breath.

    "We…"

    "I love you sis…" Her brother spoke his voice barely above a whisper with all the noise and chaos of conflict.

    "I love you…" She replied her chest heaving with sobs.

    "Tell mom I love her too…"

    "I...will…" Jiao held to Feng tighter, as tight as she could but she could feel her strength fading.

    "You have to go now."

    "No, Feng I won't."

    "Jiao please…"

    "No...No…" She held on with all that she had only to feel her brother duck his head to escape her grasp. "No...please."

    "I'm sorry." Where the last words Feng said before he slammed his shoulder into Jiao's chest sending her sprawling out of the dome of sand that protected them. As she tumbled sand got into her eyes, blinding her.

    "Feng…" She cried out as she tried to rub her eyes, to try and clear them. "FENG!…" Her scream came from the pit of her sadness, from the deepest parts of her soul as she blindly tried to crawl back to her brother, to steal just one more moment with him.
