The winner is (2015)

The Jury voted and the worthy winner is Friz (again) with his entry Judge Me Worthy. Friz has selected the Type A2L Prize, Ship Book: A2L Far Trader from our sponsor Moon Toad Publishing.

Some comments from the Jury:

“What a fantastic caper; this starts out as a comedic romp and ends up in a brilliant plot twist leading to some dire circumstances for the players. This Amber Zone could be a spring-board to an entire campaign. Bonus points for adhering to the contest rules! I do judge this worthy!” Dylan

“I think this is an interesting situation with some opportunities for heroics. I like that this start up as a non-threatening almost comic situation
that then turns quite serious.” BeRKA

“The scary ticket combined with the ending twist makes this a roller coaster of a adventure.” Eric

“I like it. Simple, direct, and to the point. No extraneous fluff. Just a direct setup and straight forward follow through.” Mike

Dylan is a 2 time Afghanistan vet, avionics technician in the RCAF. He has also been involved in developing a few versions of the Foreven Sector. He has been playing Traveller since about 1986 or so, and his favorite edition is MT.

BeRKA has been playing Traveller since the early 80’s. He has been playing all different versions of traveller, but he prefers Classic Traveller. His website (The Zhodani Base) was started in 1994.

The winner is

With the last post I hoped that someone would guess or speculate about who the winner was. The voting at CotI also got the wrong winner.

The Jury voted and the worthy winner is Friz with his entry The Spaces Between. For this Friz will receive Prize Pack 1, The Colonies from our sponsor Gypsy Knights Games.

Some comments from the Jury:

“Friz has written a scary rescue mission in a dangerous asteroid. There is a lot going on. The whole idea is innovative and I like it.” BeRKA

“I have found “Hostile Takeover” and “Spaces Between” the most enjoyable.” Anders

“A good setup and tension and a time limit. Plus, the chance to find an unrelated goodie.” Mike

“Fantastic idea here. In my opinion there aren’t enough of the players-against-the-environment stories.” Dylan
