Hey Gang,

We happy few needed so much driving time to get home and had lost several carfulls by closing, so here's what we're going to do:

This is the Best NPC Nominations thread.

Add your Best NPC nominations here. The basic formula is this:

Name of the player or NPC you are nominating. If you're unsure, describe them. We want to try and aim the recognition at a single person, but sometimes it's more than one, which is okay.

Short story describing the circumstance or occasion that you wish to nominate.

For new players, Best NPC is a varied category to applaud people who played specific very excellent NPCs or who did exemplary work in the task of Npcing generally. If you want to second a nomination or add additional details to someone else's nomination story, that's totally fine also. Be conscientious in your telling not to reveal secret or out of game information that isn't yours to share

On FRIDAY, AUGUST 2ND, I will use the nomination threads to make polls in which you can vote for winners. Until then, I'll try to keep this top post in each thread updated with a list of nominations so far, though without my snarky one liners which will be reserved for the VOTE polls. The polls will be left open until Tuesday August 6th, after which I I'll post a winners thread. Links will be distributed to Facebook, Discord, and the General forum at each stage to direct maximum engagement with process.

Plot / Hedgehogs: I was bussing my dishes, and saw the hedgehog advance because I had food. I set the plate down on the bench, and after a bit of pawing / sniffing at me to see if I had food, Jay's hedgehog lifted the plate I had set down and licked it before wandering off. Outside, Ahnica tried tossing hypnos at a few of them to make them fall asleep so we could try to drag them off into the woods. When that didn't work, there was vitriol. I don't know who played the hedgehogs in that incident, but hedgehogs for best NPC.

Jay for <character without a name, that can't be described for reasons>. Very on the nose. How did someone else not notice when we were 5 feet away from them? XD

Nigel for Obidemu (Obadimu?). We had a wonderfully in depth conversation about fire and protection that culminated in him picking apart Ibnaar with such astuteness it cut the Half-Ifrit to the core. I'm not going to describe what aspects he picked out and elabourated on, but it hit Ibnaar so hard, so close to home, that Ibnaar actually wondered whether they could get away with murder, a concept and desire that had been completely alien until that moment. He found the buttons that no one else had been finding and decided the best thing to do was to push them as hard as possible.

He also spent 10 minutes baiting Ibnaar into throwing the Proxy Inferno he'd given Ibnaar straight at him, only to reflect it back as a lesson. And then when the lessons turned for the even worse, his line "Call me shitty again! I gave you gifts, I tried to help, and you called me shitty! Call me shitty again!" demonstrated the fiery pride of a tempest savant scorned in such clear detail, invoking some of the most powerful feelings of shame Ibnaar has ever felt. It was perhaps the most profound event that happened to Ibnaar since joining, and compounded some of their most toxic thoughts in a way only possible due to Nigel/Obadimu's incredible insight, shrewdness, and dedication and unity of character.

All requests to create a new character or make changes to existing characters is handled by emailing Logistics. When creating a new character or making significant changes to an existing character players should use the Character card maker. For more minor changes players may just describe the change that they wish to make, for example "I wish to spend 200 favor to buy Skill points, and use those skill points to buy 3 purchases of the Skill Reserve". The email should contain the player's name, and if it is an update to an existing character, the character name as it appears on the character card - Logistics may not be aware of which character a nick name goes to.

Players should also email Logistics with Character Production (Items the character is making with Skills such as Smith, Alchemist, or Spell Wright) for the upcoming month so that Logistics is able to make the Item Tags in advance. For example "I wish to use my 50 Smith production to make a standard crafted 1 handed weapon".

Production and Character Updates MUST be submitted no later than the Friday prior to the event in order to provide Logistics sufficient time to complete the request prior to event, unless Logistics has specifically announced a different policy for a specific event (for example, if events are only 2 weeks apart Logistics often allows submissions into the week of event).
