2014 Annual ORP Coolest Avatar Award™

The 13th Annual Online-Roleplaying Coolest Avatar Award™! Lucky thirteen, this should be good.

On this day for years past beyond mortal memory, a contest has been held. A contest of champions, fallen heros, terrors beyond imagination and dreams. On this, the 13th anniversary of this most sacred of events, we face dark tides. Who can step forward to save us? Who be be the hero we need to turn back the fates? It is time, to find out, who has the ... Coolest Avatar of 2014™!

Do you have what it takes to join the champions of the past such as WhoNaN, itches, BigRedRod, LeeCHeSSS, itches, Noocytx, Gralhruk, itches, jiffypop, red_dr4g0n94, Tashalar, or Linklegacy77? No I don't think so, if you try you'll just embarrass yourself.

One night long ago, I lay upon the cool grass and cast my vision to the dark sky above. The stars danced with otherworldly grace and as I observed them I discovered the secret laws to this most holy of rituals.

The rules are simple and I'll run through them here for those who are new or have forgotten:
  • For one week from the time of this post, nominations will be open
  • You can only nominate yourself
  • Your avatar can be anything (provided it's appropriate for this site i.e. no vulgar pictures)
  • The avatar need not be your own creation
  • You can't re-enter an avatar that has already won
  • And don't change your avatar once you have nominated yourself

Also remember to include a six word or less description that amuses me, or I'll make one up for you.

Once the nominations are collected they will be placed in a poll that will remain open for another seven days (my time), after which we will either enter a 48 hour Sudden-Death tie breaker, or adorn the winner with their ceremonial bragging rights. We suggest putting the phrase "Winner of the 2014 Coolest Avatar Award™" in your signature.

Don't miss out on this rare chance to witness itches win a rigged online poll!

I feel that I should enter. But it means changing my avatar, and I don't know about that.

Trust your feeling, Gral. And when the contest is over, go back to your winner-style avatar that you have now.

... I'll absolutely enter. But I don't want to change either. We'll see.

It's only half-time for nominations, eh? You wait and see. I sense a horde of people with cool avatars approaching. From somewhere... to the left.

There, I'm entering with the catchy phrase:


"Shit! I rolled a Cthulhu!"

Some people have raised concerns about cheating in the upcoming poll. Taking these concerns into consideration, it has been decided that the poll shall feature a secret ballot. That is - the ballot shall take place in secret and only those who know where will be able to vote.

We feel that this is the best solution to ensure a fair and just result.

I thought the first rule about fight club was that we don't talk about fight club.

We're back. The Poll is closed, the votes are counted, and we can now declare that the winner of the final ever Online-Roleplaying Coolest Avatar Award!™ ... EVERYONE!

That's right, everyone wins! Not just all the contestants, but all the people who voted, all the people who didn't, all the people who havn't been on the forums in years, all the people who join up in time to come. EVERYONE WINS!

"But wait itches," no-one askes because no-one gives a shit. "What do you mean by final?"

"Well," I don't respond because no-one asked in the first place. "You may not have noticed but I don't really care about this anymore. It's been the same April Fools Day joke for thirteen years and it has finally ceased to amuse me. So on April 1st next year, if someone wants it to happen, they'll have it do it themselves."

Why would you take away my shallow and meaningless victory?

Give a man to fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish ...

Besides, you still won

It isn't winning unless you crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of their women.

All of which I did, mind you.

Considering the ease with which it was taken away from you, apparently not.
