Chief Deputy Marshal: Ridge Steiner - FMS
04 Aug 2023 @ 7:23pm
for bringing Senior Deputy Marshal Dredan Cubo to life.

Cubo went from being just a name dropped in the background, to a full character. And although his story has, so far, mostly been told in a passive voice, within a few posts he has gained a solid career, a family, and a complex mission. This is a character who can only live in the past, since he has no future, however, since the mystery around his cruel demise has not been solved, he remains very much alive in the reader’s mind. His story won’t be complete until we know what really happened to him. (Nominated by Spiral)

Cesar De La Fuente is surprising, not just because a tough guy from the hood is actually an intellectual, but also in his childlike enthusiasm as an appreciator of art and cultural exchange.
Moon-Young Chung

NPC Award for Moon-Young Chung: David K.

Moon is a character with a formidable liveliness and a wide knowledge of designer clothes, which in itself must require quite a bit of research and inventiveness, as her clothing styles aren’t limited to planet Earth, they encompass every quadrant. She is also a unique character, in that she is never afraid to speak up her mind. Yet she has her own limitations, as she knows very little about life in space and what people have to resort to in order to survive. (nomination by spiral)
Commander Calliope Zahn

Nikki has an ever growing stable of diverse and cleverly thought-out NPCs, from junior officers trying to find their feet on a dangerous mission; steady, reliable experienced NCOs, a teenage hacker; a woman fleeing her past; a family of Romulan refugees and numerous Obsidian natives.
Atif ibn Sharjar - Merchant of the Al Ashar
05 Oct 2022 @ 7:18pm
Atif Ibn Sharjar is custom fit to take the reader along on Loki III. Through his exploits and adventures in trade, we get to see new locations and meet new characters and uncover the secrets otherwise hidden from us off-worlders.

Tara has a growing stable of npcs who fill needed roles (such as Noah Kohroushi serving a diplomatic role) and who draw connections with Tara’s own expanded simming universe (persons connected with the El-aurian settlement of Itonian Bajada) to put down roots with OC and Planet Obsidian. These characters really fill out and help to detail the universe surrounding the station.

During the Sanctuary Mission, Sep began to unravel the stories of several of his beloved reprized characters whom he has brought with him to OC— including Mazur, Finn, Kensforth, and Zayne— leveraging the circumstances they find themselves in to give insight into their life stories, anxieties, and ambitions, while delivering each character's tale with nuance and style.

From the moment Zyrra said "I wrote my final thesis on it," I just knew the character would be well written and engaging. The promenade posts only went on to prove the point Zyrra is not your typical science officer nor Andorian. Well done Paul.
