Avlis Irreverence awards 2010 - Open for you (Yes, you)

PostAuthor: PsiOmega » Mon Nov 22, 2010 12:54 pm

Ladies, gentlemen and Avlis players,
With the exception of some minor holidays in November and later in December, which I'm sure no one has heard of before, there's little between here and the next year to look forward to. Or so you thought!
The Irreverence Awards are back and this year I'll be the one mishandling it.

For those who haven't voted or heard of the Irreverence Awards before, this is your chance to point out strengths and/or flaws of your favorite or anti-favorite characters of Avlis.
Just like previous years, anyone can vote, and you can vote the same person for as many awards as you like.

This year we have many of the classic categories you've come to love and hate as well as both new and retro ones.
Without much more delay, only a little bit more since you're reading this, here are the Categories of 2010:
1: Spanish Inquisition Award
1:

2: Oblivious to the Obvious
2:

3: Most Original PC
3:

4: Citation for Cowardice
4:

5: Prize for Unintended Use/Effects of Magic
5:

6: Death of the Year '10
6:

7: Pussy Mage Award
7:

8: Most Likely to Die at Any Given Moment
8:

9: Most in Need of a Sex Change
9:

10: The Middle
10:

11: The Zombie Award
11:

12: Most stereotype PC
12:

13: More Guts than Glory
13:

14: Bset typeer awayrd
14:

15: Permadeath Prize
15:

16: Friendly Fire '10
16:

17: Jerry Springer Award
17:

18: INT 3 '10
18:

19: Skywalker Award
19:

20: The Big, Shiny Prize
20:


How the voting works:
As much as we like to keep this rule free, there's some guidelines that I ask you to follow (Stolen from Jonezie, also for my own convenience >_>):

*Please select ONE CHARACTER name per award. If the award goes to a player, vote for his/her main.

*Please fill out the sheet completely (as in, one name in all the categories). If you have no clue what the award is for, be creative. If you can't think of a nomination straight away, give it some thought. There should be lots of time to work out the list.

*Send your completed lists to avlis@psiomega.se. Title the e-mail 'IA 10 List' and include your forum name as well as your filled-out list.
While I'd like to see comments, please save them for posting in this thread instead of attaching them to the e-mail.
Voting closes at midnight on Sunday, December 19.

*Remember that your votes do NOT count if I don't find your list in my e-mail inbox (Don't worry. I've got minor OCD when it comes to keeping it neat, so if you've sent it I'll likely find it).

That's it really. How you choose your nominees will be up to you. Feel free to deliberate your choices here, it might give others some inspiration as well. Comments on your submissions are also welcome.

For those interested in last year's result and comments, check here.
For those interested in all the results thus far (but without comments), check here.

DISCLAIMER: The Irreverence Awards are not associated with, or recognized by, the Avlis Team.

They did not meet the bribe minimum. 8-) In other words, rejoice, for we have finally abolished the alignment stigmatizing practice! There are plenty of categories where you can pimp your Chaotic out. In the immortal words of Mr. Jonezie, be creative. :twisted:

OK, I'm still new enough here to have never hear of these awards, though it does sound like fun.

Couple questions:

Someone asked what "The Middle" was, never got a real answer to that.


Also the "Skywalker Award"?

And what is the criteria for "The Big Shiny Prize"?

You decide for yourself, young padawan~

Though I think the Skywalker award used to have a tagline along the lines of "for the PC most in need of a fall to the other side".

The middle is the middle. Call it the Meh award, or whatever else you want. Just vote for the pc that fits it best!

From the first post :)
If you have no clue what the award is for, be creative


Feel free to express your own opinions, take inspiration from others, discuss them and so on. This is why comments are most welcome as well.

"The Middle" could indeed be about alignment but it could also be any of the examples Gorgon mentions or something else entirely.
Personally I'm not going to make claims either way. I just want to see more lists :D

Yeah, I for one do not see "The Middle" as necessarily alignment-related. To me, it is more like "who was stalling this year". To you, it could be whatever you come up with! :-)

Strictly character names only? What about DM's?

And what if you don't know who their main is? Don't tell me "ask them". I don't want people know I'm voting for them :flucht:

It most certainly is when asking about a definition/clarification on The Middle.
