For breathing life into the specifics of Obsidian tribal life and culture, bridging the gap between the reader and the world with his colorful character of ibn Sharjar and making his own clever contributions to the details of the world. He really made the wiki "canon" of Loki III and other post references shine.

Sep's writing paints pertinent detail in such a way as to put the reader undeniably in the scene, seamlessly guiding the inner eye through expertly imagined events. Whether setting up a dinner party, executing creative flight maneuvers, illustrating a nightmare, delivering the convincing detail of an Operation Center, Bridge, or a Marine action— Sep never cuts corners on set up and description, constructing a rich environment for understanding the context of the characters and opening up so much possibility for the imagination to latch on to and continue to develop in future posts, both for himself and for those who write with him.
