Universe of the Month Nominations

Tips: 1.50 INK Postby partially-stars on Mon Aug 17, 2020 5:21 am

Hello there! So this thread will be a dedicated thread in order to nominate a universe for consideration for Universe of the Month. You can nominate any universe you like, be it your own, one you’re really enjoying being a part of, or one you’ve been reading. Please follow the below format for nominations. Multiple nominations won’t improve a universes chances of being selected, so to make our lives a little easier, please double check that the universe you intend to nominate hasn’t already been nominated.

UPDATE: Nominations can now also be made anonymously through this link if you’d prefer.

Code: Select all
[b]Name of Universe:[/b]
[b]Link to Universe:[/b]
[b]New or Existing Universe?[/b]
[b]Why Should We Pick It?[/b] (Please keep this short and sweet, 200 words or thereabouts!)

Nominations will close each Wednesday at 23:59 GMT. Any nominations made after that will be considered for the following week’s UOTW. Announcements will take place on Sunday.

those who do not believe in magic will never find it.

New or Existing Universe? umm? new? they haven't started yet lol.
Why Should We Pick It? Frankly, I think it's a great idea for an rp. Umbrella Academy has such a rich world, and there's an abundance of fun to be had there. ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ really made the setting their own, and made things open enough for creativity while keeping the tone about the same. I'm really looking forward to seeing how this one goes, and personally I think that it deserves some hype.

Why Should We Pick It? It's a relatively new Universe that has tons of activity, growing very quickly and with tons of content!

New or Existing Universe?
Why Should We Pick It? In the 1970s, a form of feminism rose in the United States from the shattered pieces of the left known as Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminism or TERFs (though mind you, they seem to think that the term is a slur). It crossed over to the UK some time in the 80s and carrying with it all sorts of transphobic talking points.

Enter JK Rowling, an isolated woman vying for relevancy and writer of the Harry Potter series. You might also know her from Pottermore and "wizards used to poop themselves". She has gone from retweeting support for TERFs/TERFy things to a full mask off essay detailing her trans panic (including the men pretending to be trans to go into bathrooms dogwhistle). It's sad I know.

Lucky for us conflicted fans, CharlotteV is here to save the day and your childhood. In addition to reimagining your favorite characters through an LGBT+ lens, the roleplay gives room to explore everyone's trauma and the fallout from the war.

To a Brighter Future
https://www.roleplaygateway.com/universes/to-a-brighter-future
New Universe

I think that this roleplay deserves a nomination because of the interesting concept it is founded upon -space communism- and it also deserves some attention. The creator, Tanker72, has come up with a pretty original idea. It hasn't had any activity yet, but I think once it does, all of the members of the Roleplay will enjoy it. Just thought I should put this nomination up there.
Yours Truly,
Joseph Bennett

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
-Frank Herbert, Dune.

Tips: 0.25 INK Postby Kaeru on Wed Sep 02, 2020 3:03 pm

Name of Universe: Hogwarts: A Dark New Age

Link to Universe: here

New or Existing Universe? Existing.

Why Should We Pick It? An interesting spin on a pre-existing story, for sure, but I'm nominating this role-play purely on the strength of the GM and the atmosphere they've created for their writers. Wolf's Bane109's level of dedication to keeping this universe alive is unreal and I think it's fair to say we all feel more motivated by extension. Everyone has put considerable effort into plotting interesting interactions and events, to the most intricate details of their characters. Wolf makes sure to listen to all of our ideas, no matter how ridiculous they seem or how far they stray from JKR's lore, and always finds a way to compromise. They've given us enough creative freedom to make the universe feel like our own. This role-play as a whole is so fun and I wholeheartedly believe it's gonna last a long time.

Why Should We Pick It? So many amazing writers have joined this RP from the very first one, and came to join me in the second. It's been a rollercoaster of emotions, storylines, and plots. I for one am proud to have created this universe as it has allowed me to meet some lovely people who have detailed characters that seem & feel like real people. This is going to keep going until the very end, and personally? I hope there will be a third.

Since it's been a while let's get another one nominated!

Name of Universe: Gods Among Us: The Godslayer
Link to Universe: Here
New or Existing Universe? Existing?
Why Should We Pick It? By blending mythology with science fiction, Gods Among Us captures the essence of a dark, modern fantasy novel. With threads of lore, NPCs, and fleshed out settings, Venussky's roleplay feels like an open world where players can not only explore the existing plot but create their own plot threads as well.

Why Should We Pick It? By creating an open world and encouraging multiple forms of roleplaying, SHOVELHEAD's has empowered their writers to collaborate on the world their characters live in. It has a wonderful cast, a brilliant selection of writers (old and new) and an encouraging environment for any and all ideas. It was created a little more than a week ago and already has 11 characters and a little over 4k words, not including headcanons in OOC. There's also a couple writers in the roleplay who are brand new to RPG and I'd like to give them a lil applause.

Why Should We Pick It? After Taylor Swift dedicated her recent album to our roleplay, it only seems appropriate haha.

No but really - it's a wonderful roleplay with a great cast of fcs and writers and a story that's just starting to get good!
