  • To all PBEMers! ROLE-PLAYING contest!

    People,
    We're opening a contest for best role-playing PBEM player. This means, when you play your turns, you not only post the usual note: "Turn to Solver", but you also write some story there, and it's better if it matches the actual position of players there. For example, tell about how Sancho explores the rich incan lands, or about General McCoy, whos Bomber is followed by the evil Interceptors of those terrible Germans.
    Play well, and hope to win the prizes we have got fot you.
    I hope that MarkG will soon post here to present you with more info on prizes. We're currently working on judge search.
    It takes little effort, I hope. And if you play PBEM, why not make more experience of it?

    To join the contest, post to this thread, and include which PBEMs are you in, so that we know in which threads to seek for your stories.
    If you want to be a judge of the contest, either post to the thread, or perhaps email me, if you don't want to post here, so that everyone can see your offer.
    Also, I'd like to hear suggestions on what length would you offer for the contest. It can't be too short, assuming the PBEM speed, so vote here.
    Of course, the decisions will be taken by the administrators, but we'll listen to what you have to say here.

        Hey that's sound great, put me on with TNT (just the 0 turn), and with High Voltage.

        But I warn every body, I had a lot of grammatical errors in english sorry about that.

          Role Play : Okay let's go. Sounds (reads) great for me.

          I'm the Illuminate Leader or Irish in the Game Team Horses,
          and the Enlighted Son of Sun, leader of Maya in game Strife.

            Birdy,
            You now seem so angry, that you can't make a worthy choice here. Hmm.

            BerXpert,
            Don't worry about your grammar - I also have tons of grammatical mistakes. Entry accepted, two games.

            ZoboZeWarrior,
            Accepted. Dont' just make another BadBrain .

            Thus far here are:
            BerXpert: THT, High Voltage.
            ZoboZeWarrior: TeamHorses, Strife.

              TNT .

              BTW, good move Solver. Role playing will keep players in high interest even if the turn rate is slow.

                  Thanks Keygen. And the prizes will also be given, of course. MarkG also helped me here, even though this is an idea of mine, originally.
                  BirdMan, both games accepted. Do some PBEM? is INCREDIBLY slow (1 turn = 1 week, usually), but you make amazing roleplaying there. OK, perhaps we'd give you the prize now?
                  And I see noone wants to judge this?

                    We've been doing roleplay for ages. Check out Swissy 2, Demos or Love Conquers for some interesting stories. And for those who just want a good read, dig up Semi-Acc from the archives, what a winner!

                      hi guys, glad there is interest

                      for the prizes, we've got some copies of ctp2 and of the ctp2 strategy guide.

                      but first we need some judges, right?

                        It's very old now, and I don't even have the link to it anymore but I'm sure other players will, but for sheer effort I reckon Duck Hunter's Dutcheese Newspaper must take first prize.

                        For 'On Thread' RP I think dear old Semi-Acc takes a lot of beating for the way that everyone contributed right the way through. Mobius has been a great 'Torquemada' in LC? and his crazed 'Caligula' in Demos was pretty good too.

                          Oh, Markos - what are these guides, I forgot to ask.
                          And I will either judge this or take prt here. Can't choose...

                            When will the contest start? Until when do you accept candidates? And how long is it going to last?

                              We're waiting for people to voice their opinions. But those who post here can start role-playing at once. It will be accepted.
