Rules

  • Anyone who has played at least one game on FoL can nominate another member for an award. Anyone who has played or hosted at least one game on FoL is eligible to receive an award.
  • All nominations must have a nomination and a second to be valid. You cannot nominate yourself, nor can you nominate a team that you were part of (for example, if you were scum in CoD 1, you can’t nominate the CoD 1 scumteam for a group award; however, you could nominate a teammate for an individual award).
  • A minimum of 1 day must pass between a game ending and any nominations for that game.
  • All games that occurred on Fortress of Lies, including those in 2021, are eligible for awards. In addition, games that occured on the FoL MU subforum at least part in 2022 are also eligible.
  • The deadline for nominations is one week after the last game that began in 2022 ends.
  • Once the nominations period is over, all relevant awards will be eligible for voting. Voting will be done via forum poll (the results will not be visible to anyone except forum moderators).

I nominate the seperation of best role and best mechanic into two seperate categories.

Second

Role/Mechanic are combined into one award because some years there isn’t really any interesting and novel mechanic that isn’t tied in some way to a role

2 Likes

If by the middle of the year, we have 3 solid mechanics that would fit the bill, would you consider a split?

2 Likes

sure, although I would have to discuss whether to actually split it with the other mods

Oh no, mechanic is for example “dice rolling” from Dicey Dungeons.
Many roles did that.

If a mechanic is tied to one role, it’s a role thing.
If it’s tied to many players, it’s a mechanic thing.

Pretty much that is what I meant

Speaking of.

From Dicey Dungeon I nominate:

  1. Copycat as best role
    While I know that setup didn’t exactly allow it to shine, I’m still considering it one of simpler, yet at the same time well connected to the game role.
    And most importantly - it scales nicely with player ability. Something which most of classic mafia roles don’t do at all.
    .
    I honestly don’t expect it to win, becouse it’s not shiny and flashing role.
    But that’s actually what makes me nominate it.
    .
    Cause it is interacting with setup in many interseting ways, being both a bit chalanging to player to use… while also remaining the role simplicity.
    That’s a hard to achieve thing, you know?

And that’s probably all for DD.
@Litten you barely missed the nomination mark. You know what parts you omitted, which gave you some problems later on.

Nominate Nightingale for BotF XII’s art (in the flavour category), if that’s valid. The art was really pretty and added flavour to the characters we were playing in BotF rather than just… y’know… BotC characters. Made it unique to all other BotFs
