Our Top Ten
10. OW Community Platform 70 points
Brain child of Nim this platform brings the OW community together to collaborate, request games and players and just generally communicate in a way that did not happen prior to its creation. Everyone who writes on OW should be on this platform!
9. Hart to Hart 81 points
A slice of life game based in the quaint city of Cape Hamond, Oregon. A relatively new creation and with a decent posting rate to date. If real life drama is your thing then this just might be your game.
8. Jericho 114 points
This would not be a top ten list without a game from Avenuewriter in it. Jericho is currently closed to new players but remains active as one of the sites more interesting Sci-Fi offerings.
7. Dungeons Deep & Dark 153 points
GreyCleric and RedSword7 strike again with this fantasy romp as players literally become their online fantasy avatars and live out their adventures 1980's Dungeons and Dragons style.
6. Savage Lands 159 points
D2Wintr has been very active as both a writer and moderator since joining the site and Savage Lands is another fine example of her passion for collaborative world building and writing.
5. Lost Mine of Phandelver 167 points
This one is my latest baby and hands up it is the post rate that has got it the spot in the top ten as running D&D requires a lot of posting and we are loving it. It's still a baby in comparison to many on this list but I have high hopes for the format.
4. Beyond the Ragnarok 197 points
Ok ok it's not a fix and this is the last one of mine in the list I promise. BtR has been around for a few years now and marked my return to the site after a year away. Its a great Norse Fantasy supported by some great writers. Thank you all for keeping it going!!
3. Two Kingdoms 262 Points
This game was a beast back in its day and is one of the most successful fantasy games to run on OW. Thought the post rate is down these days the adventure still continues through a small group of dedicated writers. Take a look here.
2. Browncoats Unite: Back to the Black (A Firefly Tale) 553 Points
This game absolutely deserves a spot in the top three as a multi-award winning story with a convergence of some of OWs most talented and prolific writers. This Fire Fly Tale is a must for anyone looking for a place to stretch their imagination and writing talent. Check it out here.
1. The Dark Series 644 Points
This is a labour of love from Rhiannon and megan1210 and is one of the oldest active games on the site having been around since April 2017. Check it out here
