2013 Annual ORP Coolest Avatar Award™

The 12th Annual Online-Roleplaying Coolest Avatar Award™! You know what this is right? Well let me tell you.

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. A hallowed tradition that can't be broken - except for this year because the 1st was a long weekend, itches was drinking, and forgot. What is this contest? Coolest Avatar of 2013™!

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, or Tashalar? I doubt it, we may not even have a winner this year

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 may 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 2013 Coolest Avatar Award™" in your signature.

Don't miss out on this rare chance shred your dignity for fake online popularity!

Well, since I could be the first to win twice in a row, I will have to enter. But first I need an avatar...

... and planning ahead, I could always win again next year to draw level with itches.

Optimism is generally good, right?

Wait, are we sure about that? This thing could use some controversy.

Technically it's over, but I'll give it until about 9am AEST on the 15th. So you (and anyone else, ha!) have until then to enter or Link and Mercutio go head-to-head.

Congratulations!

And we should definitely do another one next year. Unless activity goes down on this forum, that is.

Yes, congrats. And we need to continue this tradition of deceit, trash talking, and gloating. It builds community.
