That’s right–now that the Tournament of Simulations is completed, it’s time to turn our attention to Ongoing Worlds’ pinnacle award: The Squiddie (aka The Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Roleplaying). Each year we present Squiddies to three different entities: one person, one sim/game, and one club. Squiddies are bestowed for exemplifying one or more of the following characteristics, primarily during the previous calendar year:
- Excellence in role playing: Outstanding role play or leadership performance far above and beyond the typical person, game, or club.
- Originality and innovation: Using a new technology or innovation or combining existing technologies together in a new way to elevate the role play adventure
- Facilitating the community experience: Enhancing interaction, cooperation, and/or collaboration among role players to improve or advance the community
