This article was posted at the request of John Nugra, the Administrator of the Simming Prize.
The Simming Prize dates back to 1999 in honoring the very best of the online role playing community. Up to five Prizes are awarded annually to people, sims, clubs, and other organizations that (1) exemplify service, quality, and dedication within play-by-post online role-playing; or who (2) pioneer new technology or techniques within the community. The Prizes can recognize a significant onetime accomplishment, or sustained contributions over a period of time. The Simming Prize is presented in the memory of longtime role player and leader Seth Cotis.
After careful consideration and thoughtful deliberation, the Simming Prize trustees and judges hereby award the 2019 Simming Prize to:
2020 was unlike any year most of us have ever experienced before as the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to wreak havoc. Beyond the most unfortunate loss of life, many have also lost jobs, friendships, and more. 2020 is certainly a year none of us will want to repeat! With that said, all wasn’t bad, at least in roleplaying. We did publish a few articles that we hope you found helpful. As is our annual tradition, here are some of the best from 2020.

I wouldn’t blame you for throwing that compliment back in my face, as 2020 is proving to be a turbulent year, with so much going on in the news, mostly the coronavirus pandemic, forcing so many people across the world to stay in their homes :-/
With much of our social activity now going online, one of the best ways to remain creative AND be social is to start, or take part in online roleplaying.
You might be writing a science fiction story, like one of the many sci-fi roleplay stories here on OngoingWorlds, like Jericho or Star Wars: Balance of the Force.
At some point your characters might find themselves on an alien planet, about to meet a new race of unfamiliar aliens. Or visit a spacestation of a different alien culture. You might want to make that species as different as possible, to give it an exciting bit of flavour, and put your characters completely out of their element.
Maybe the aliens are hostile? Maybe they’re friendly. Here are some tools that can help you come up with some unique aliens:
This creates an alien description & goes into a lot more detail than the one above, as it can create a lot of detail about the culture. Also there’s a page to generate an alien planet name for this alien species here.
But the lists below are specifically for creating a spaceship name. Different scifi universes have different rules of spaceship names. For example the Star Trek universe normally has spaceships named after famous explorers, or positive-sounding words. Whereas the Star Wars universe has aggressive sounding names.
Each month, the OngoingWorlds website has hosting costs that are in part covered by our Hero Members. However, we currently don’t have enough Hero Members to cover the entire month’s hosting, so it’s always nice to receive a whole month’s hosting up front (there’s an option here).
If you’d like to donate to our ongoing costs, you could donate regularly and become an OngoingWorlds Hero Member (which shows on each of your posts), or donate for a month up front, which I’d be totally grateful for!
