Last month, we asked for nominations for our top award, the Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing (aka the Squiddie). You responded with 29 absolutely outstanding nominations. For anyone who missed those posts, the Squiddie is presented annually to one person, one game, and one club. Each of the three winners is awarded for one of the following respective areas:
Excellence in Role Playing
Originality & Innovation
Facilitating the Community Experience

That’s right, the 2015 Simming Fall Festival will be held on December 5th from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM EST (1:30 PM to 10:30 PM GMT). Ongoing Worlds is proud to announce that UFOP: StarBase 118 will be hosting, with James Drysdale serving as chairman. You may remember that UFOP also hosted the 2013 festival, which was wildly successful.
For a few short hours in December, the entire simming and online role playing community will come together to share ideas, role play, and join in a few trivia games–all in IRC chat rooms. James and UFOP will be on point to make it all happen. FallFest is not only open to all simmers and role players on the net, but all are also permitted to host one or more one-hour events within the festival. So what does it mean for you?
First, plan to attend: This is the premier community event of the year!
Invite all your friends: Let them in on the fun too!
If you would like to host a one-hour discussion, role play, or trivia game, email James at renos[at]starbase118[dot]net
