Mutts and Mongrels, we now have two new officers in the Rain Dogs. As we've continued to grow and progress, it has become clear that I cannot be around all the time to address issues with all members, or induct new pups. As such two dedicated members have been given the role of officer within the Rain Dogs. Delinquent, having shown a vested interest both in-game and forum-side, has really stayed on-message with exactly the storytelling that we want to bring to this game. He has remained an active and contributive member while maintaining a positive attitude. Navron, having consistently gotten better within the action districts, while keeping his head. He shows that you can play this game, play it well, and stay calm when things don't go your way. Navron should really be a role model for everyone else in the action district.
Both will be given a more active role in the recruiting and introduction of new members.
We will now have monthly awards given to the eight (four and four) most outstanding players and storytellers within the Rain Dogs. Winners will have modified forum ranks and icons for the month, along with listings in the awards' respective thread.
Winners will be chosen by me, with input from the officer team. However, anyone can nominate anyone else, should you see that their activity is so deserving. This month's winners are as follows:
Eightball Ace: The Baker Pool Hall Eightball Ace title for excellence in gameplay is awarded to Dice, Anathema, Chainer, and Delinquent. There are plenty more that I would like to put on this list, but these four consistently show that they are serious contenders for the daily leagues. Nice shooting, gentlemen.
Featured Author: The Priceless Tomes Book of the Month Featured Author title for excellence in storytelling is awarded to DevilDolly, Claire, Dmitri, and Carlyle. Specifically looking toward their affinity toward in-game roleplaying, and their activity in "Crimes Against Art," the open RP, this quartet has shown a tangible want to tell stories within this universe, something that I hope everyone will experience, as it is very much the guiding force behind this group. Once again, I wish I could have added everyone that has contributed to these stories thusfar, but these four have shaped a world that is already attracting many others.
