Just an idea to try something out, and to recognise those that contribute greatly to our section. People can suggest awards and nominate people for each one, and after a while - if enough interest is garnered - we'll make a temporary sub-section and let the voting for each award proceed in its own thread.


  • Make nominations in this thread only. Do not PM or VM me about it.
  • You can nominate things you made or were involved in.
  • You can challenge a nomination, but do so by PMing me about it. I don't want public drama here.
  • Nominees must have come up in 2012. They don't necessarily have to be new in 2012, though.
  • In suggesting awards avoid simple, boring and catch-all ones like best roleplayer/character/roleplay/battle.

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

I have ideas too!

For Character Awards:
Most heroic
Most compelling/realistic (pretty much character to best make you care about them through their complexity)
Best personality/ Most complex personality

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

Best Character Death
Me likey! I'm not sure how many notable deaths there may have been, but I'm sure expanding it to 'departures' works about as well.

Most-Improved Roleplayer of 2012
Roleplayer of the Year
These fall a little into the simple/catch-all awards I wasn't exactly looking for. That, and I'm not sure how many people changed a whole lot over the year, or who started as new and uncertain but are now a confident member of the regulars. I'll put the former in tentatively and hope for nominees.

Most heroic
Most compelling/realistic (pretty much character to best make you care about them through their complexity)
Best personality/ Most complex personality
These also fall into the catch-all sort of area. Heroic roleplay characters tend to be boring compared to their villainous counterparts, and realistic/compelling/complex feel a bit too vague.

"Valjezza, at last, we see each other plain; Monsieur Orion, you'll wear a different chain. . ."


Nomination Ideas​

Best Supporting Roleplayer - Contributed to one/multiple RPs (that they joined, and did not create) consistently with quality/good length posts.

The Adjecticator - Best use of adjectives with a post or others; how well did they describe stuff, detail, pretty things, ugly things, etc.

Worst Character Design/Concept Self-explanatory, but if nominating someone for this, explain how you would fix/tone down the character's issues with sense of belief, realism, etc.

Worst Roleplay Design If nominating someone, explain your opinion and provide options/criticism.

Worst Hero Help someone kill their Gary/Mary Stu and create something flawed and delicious. Same requirements as above ones.

Worst Villain Same as Worst Hero, only help the RPer make them more villainous, pun intended.

Worst Weapon If nominating someone, describe why the weapon is stupidly overpowered/underpowered, and provide criticism/options to fix and balance the item's design.

Worst Ability Same as Weapon, only with magic spells and textual mechanics. Provide analysis, criticism, and helpful options.

Laziest Poop RPer Who needs to get on the ball with posting. Provide tips and tricks for getting in the creative mood/killing writer's block, or perform the Black Sacrament to have them slain.

Worst Character Collection For people whose characters all seem like "same person, different face." Provide criticism and such.

Worst World-Weaver If nominating someone for this, provide help/options, criticism, etc, in making their World more believable and so on.

Because someone had to put these up. We won't improve as a "micro community" if we just look at the bright side of things. We're not here to celebrate just the "good" Role-Plays.

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

Most Busy: The one that can create multiple characters in multiple RPs and STILL make mid-to-high quality posts.
Best WTF?! Moment: A scene that was either incredibly funny, or made everyone take a step back to question not only the player's sanity, but their own as well.

The only category ideas that I can come up with right now.

Can I ban you yet?

Anyway, I don't like the idea of anti-awarding people for consistently bad characters, roleplays, etc, but I've no problem doing similar things for the roleplay and character categories.

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

Roleplay Awards:

Start with a bang! - Best opening
  • KH: Eclipse - Took a while getting through it, though...
Failure to launch - Most unfortunate early death
  • The Unseen Veil - It's a shame that everyone decided to stop caring about this roleplay just as it was getting good.
Ensemble - Best cast
Best scene
Best story concept
  • R.E.M. - Reality, Existence, Mentality - Not sure if this technically counts, as I had to place it on the backburner before it got to actually start (it's overdue for its return), but I know this concept is one of the best that I've ever made.

Character Awards:

Dastardly - Best villain
Keep an eye on 'em - Best character to be wary of
Best character concept
  • The Reaper - So simple, yet so wonderful. Truly a shame he never got his turn.

Member Awards:

The Adjecticator - Best writer
  • Ordeith
Best supporting roleplayer
  • Professor Ven
World-Weaver - Best environment maker
  • Can I upvote Ordeith or something? Seriously, after working with him on our fantasy project, I can't think of any other person more suiting of this award.
Hardest working
  • Orion - Probably the only real moderator this section has, Jezza has poured much effort into restoring this section.
My minions! - Best character collection
  • Ordeith

Few award ideas:

  • Best Rivalry - Some characters are natural opposites, and from that opposition can grow bitter (or respected) rivalries.
  • Most Helpful Roleplayer - The roleplayer who went that extra step in helping another roleplayer.
  • Biggest Plot Twist - A turn of events so unexpected that it knocks you right off your chair and leaves you in an awe-struck coma for days.
  • Guys You Love to Hate - Those scumbag characters you just want to strangle (doesn't necessarily fall under just villains, as many heroes can be douches too).

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

The mighty Gary Stu - Best villain - Clement Capricious by Akans (Succeeded by FLLFFL)
Can't find any template or description of Clement from 2012, so I assume you're nominating FLLFFL?
Well-equipped - Best item/weapon Clement's Heart/Heartless
Same problem here, we at least need some sort of descriptive thing to link to.
It's a what? - Worst character concept - Karutomaru.
While I wholeheartedly agree, Karutomaru wasn't 2012.
Guys You Love to Hate - Those scumbag characters you just want to strangle (doesn't necessarily fall under just villains, as many heroes can be douches too).
Added everything but this, because I'm really not sure there's that many to choose from this year. Sure, before we had the likes of BrianFTW and Karutomaru, but they're past and I don't think people get the same feeling out of genuine characters/roleplayers these days.

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

His original template was from 2010, and in his absence his character has been kept alive in cameo as an NPC. His character did merge with FLLFFL so suffice to say, yes. The other elements I'll have to retrieve from physical posts, which I'll get on asap.

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

Well, I'm late to the party, aren't I? Since I agree with (and appreciate) all of the nominations that I recognize, I'm just going to nominate a few that haven't been mentioned yet. Repeats are purely for emphasis.

The Roleplay Section. I seldom venture out.

Re: Roleplaying Awards 2012 - Nominations Open!

I wish I could nominate Eternal Dream's angel-like collection of characters in The Keyblade War, but I'm afraid she made some of them this year, is that going to warrant exclusion from the possibility of an award for her?

No, but the collection would only be looked at for the 2012 period.
