Re: Sim-level Awards

Another GM award to a player on the Accipiter: Aidan tpo Leolacir for the following post.

Aidan Fal wrote:

He could identify the power non-force users took in handling a weapon, Elli's confidence was asign of that fact. They had less to fear of the repercussions, the imperceptible ripples that spread through the Force were as distant as whispers in a canyon. Still, every weapon was a blade, and while one end cut into the flesh of another, it tore equally at the soul of its wielder. Once it reached deep enough, it would be too late. Their bodies the deserted canyon, and their souls the whisper.

He hadn't noticed he'd started rubbing at the raised scar tissue that came up to his shoulder, still palpable through the cloth. The split-second of somber thinking was quickly wiped from his face, putting on a smile to bolster the general feeling of positive energy that the group showed in the task.

That's an Ash Leighton Plom Acting SL Award for Sombre Profundity.

Re: Sim-level Awards

Many thanks! I don't think I've played a baggage character before, but it definitely helps add layers to the roundness of a character. I can see why Elli is a popular toon. smile

Huh, interesting... most of my characters are baggage characters to some extent (and usually a large extent)! Even the droid, actually.

Re: Sim-level Awards

Here's a slightly edited copy of a post I was just so pleased to make, in the OOC thread on the West Star:

---

I'm delighted to say that at last I have completely caught up on all the hundreds of incredibly great posts from over my Leave...

I'm in awe.

The Ash Leighton Plom SL "The Skeleton Crew Who Kept The Empire From Looking Bad" Award goes with great thanks to Robert and Paul for their considerable contribution and for their crew characters holding the fort while Will and especially me had periods of absence over the last couple of months.

The Ash Leighton Plom SL "You Ain't In Kansas Anymore" Dreamworld Character Development Award goes to Jay W and Nick B for Mouse's compelling depth, immersion, pain, and so much more in the scene in his bedroom and his dream sequence.

Finally, the Ash Leighton Plom SL "Haven't You People Got Homes To Go To?" Award for Commitment, Dedication, and Frequent Flying goes to both Amanda and Jay, with massive thanks to Nick for all he did as GM facilitating this, and I want to draw particular attention to page 16 of the 'Deck 1: Diplomatic Suite' thread for sheer epicosity. As such, the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for Sheer Epicosity (That Should So Be A Real Word) goes to Amanda and Nick for posts 376-392, but more broadly for the whole tone the sim took on at that juncture. Reading it was like that moment in Serenity when Mal does his speech in the galley about the Alliance just after the crew have been on Miranda and seen what happened there and I always find myself thinking with something of an adrenaline rush "now this is a movie!"

My thanks to Amanda, Jay, Robert, Paul, and especially Nick for making all this happen.

Re: Sim-level Awards

Ash, would you (and other players) mind sending me a list of the awards you send in future via PM so I can add them to the wiki more easily?

It would be appreciated.

Re: Sim-level Awards

Another one, for Fighter Ops:

The Tony DiNozzo Award for Inappropriate Flirting goes to Jason Andersen, particularly for this post. I'm getting reminded of Tony and Ziva from NCIS, except Noshin is a full princess who can kill you from over 150 miles away.

I actually lurked just recently reading Fighter Ops and thought that was all very believable, very likely characterisations. Fun, too, unless you're Noshin, of course.

Re: Sim-level Awards

Robert Longtin just won the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for The Superlative Epicaryest (epic and legendary) Hero Introduction, and Kevin Diamond the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for Suitably Awed Responses to The Superlative Epicaryest (epic and legendary) Hero Introduction, both on the Triple Zero (see posts #2 and #3 in the Triple Zero: Loading Bay thread on that sim: http://www.phoenix-rp.com/viewtopic.php … 46#p25946). Keep in mind this has been being foreshadowed and anticipated since the 1st September, 2010! (http://www.phoenix-rp.com/viewtopic.php?pid=1598#p1598)

Re: Sim-level Awards

I love your character concept, Robert, it's one of my favourites, even more so than several of the ones I wrote myself, and I'm really quite self-involved. ;-) But seriously, the bio is one of my favourites and I admire the way you haven't rushed into the whole 'I'm Galactically (in)famous' thing and have waited til the best moment possible. Well done!

Additionally, Paul Baker has at long last been recognised for his Ongoing Portrayal of an Enthusiastic and Honourable Haradan in Tolkien's Middle Earth, winning an Ash Leighton Plom SL Award of the same title. :-)

Re: Sim-level Awards

And some more:

David Anderson is awarded the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for Actually Being Hugh Jackman, in his roleplay with 'Anzac' in SGB-2, avatared by Hugh Jackman.

Dawn Castell wins the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for Combining Outright Heroicosity with Believable Vulnerability in a Serviceperson for her characterisation of Avalon McManus in SGB-2 who has always somehow seemed to combine a brave and detached soldier with a wounded abuse victim in one person.

And James Mcguire, I'm giving you the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for the Most Likeable Yet at the Same Time Manly and Impressive Civie Ever to Serve, in Lucas Fairweather, SGB-2's resident weightlifting geek (I'm set in mind of that scene where Daniel Jackson is going toe-for-toe with Teal'c lifting weights in SG-1!).

Re: Sim-level Awards

Jason, when you get back from LOA and up to speed, I wonder if you'd be able to email all the SLs and just remind them of this thread and perhaps encourage more to post Sim Level Awards here, reassuring them that it really is that simple - see something praiseworthy, and get it recognised here.

Also, I wanted to ask for a sitrep on getting badges coded, so award winners will have some icon showing they're an SL Award winner?

Re: Sim-level Awards

And finally, left deliberately ironically til last, the Ash Leighton Plom SL's Award Recognising Overlooked Loss, Sacrifice, and Constant Heroism is belatedly granted to Dondi Ratliff for poor Shadra Reu on the Accipiter. Just because she's quiet and not attention-seeking, she's constantly being underestimated or outright overlooked, and I just wanted to glorify her here.

I'm absolutely delighted to award Amanda Bond the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for Joss Whedon Excellence in Firefly GMing for two phenomenal posts in rapid succession, one featuring a screenshot of a California landscape so Firefly it was almost remis of Mr. Whedon to not use it for shooting (maybe he would have if the show had continued), and the other shockingly apparently killing off a character who has been with the crew for... it's got to be about five years real time.

Amanda, stunning stuff.

Couple more:

Paul 'pauljericho' Baker is awarded the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for Insightful Counsellor Skills and Inherently Knowing Your Clients through Elias Abaddon's occassional analyses such as his recent one of the West Star's Captain Bill Comnenus and the GM-controlled Political Officer Krin Roshenko.

Also Jay Wypij walks away with the Ash Leighton Plom SL Award for Placid Jedi Awesomeness and Excellent, Patient Foreshadowing, and a Gamechanging Reveal, also on the West Star.
