Comic Contest WinnersIn this year's comic contest, entrants had to tell a story about life on the RPR with only 3 to 8 panels.
It's always difficult to judge contests like these. To make it even possible to decide on winners in the comic contest, I had to take a trip to the real world. Armed with pizza, a laptop and some actual people in meat space, I was able to get a wide range of reactions to these hilarious masterpieces.
These are the comics that came out on top:
In first place, f0x1nth3b0x's retelling of a RP she and Kuroi_Neko played right here on the RPR.
In second place, reeno-alchemist's tale of the effervescent joy that comes from having a lot of RPR messages.
In third place, Darth_Angelus' proof that the Mayans were wrong and that there will infact be a 2013.
And in fourth place, Drayle88's "My Life on RPR," a saga of mismatched time zones, missed connections and the eventual redemption that always seems to occur just when you're getting up to pee.
Birthday cake and other joys!What's a birthday without a special meal and a cake? In this contest, entrants baked, cooked or mixed food and drink with a nerdtastic twist.
In first place: CaptainCassie, for her amazing set of flavored vodkas that represent the diversity of the community.I had NO IDEA you could make vodka that tastes like Parmesan cheese! A great deal of work on a wonderfully thematic concept. Cassie also gifted us with the recipe for a ham dish that has appeared in a number of RPs between her and Jay.
In second place: Claine, for charmingly nerdy Bento lunches.Totoro is cute, but I'm still trying to figure out how she managed to recreate a man running with a machete - complete with fingers - in seaweed.
In third Place: TheLily gave us quite the range of entries! From a real life health potion to a D&D stat cake to a stew designed to immerse your tastebuds in the adventuring life style, she demonstrated how to do a main course, a beverage, and a dessert in true nerdly style!
In fourth place: Rubix made some mouth wateringly delicious sounding ramen with unusual twists. Follow his recipe and let us know if it gives you those amazing stat boosts that the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World video game promises!
In fifth place: Amirrora baked us a classic birthday cake! I was so hoping someone would make us a cake for our birthday. It sounded genuinely delicious!
Since there was no sixth qualifying entry and we have six prizes, I'm very happy to be able to give Dragonfire an honorable mention for her insanely accurate and mouth-watering portal cake. Even though it was made a few years back, her nerdly artistry certainly deserves some recognition. Thanks so much for sharing Dragonfire, it blew my mind.
