I also nominate Danganronpa 5: Mirrored Embers for Best Misc
Most of this game was played in PMs, but you can access those through the Spec Discord with a bit of effort.
The great hosting, enticing lore, interesting mechanics, and top notch playerlist all culminated to create a game that several players outright didn’t want to kill as it’d mean they would have to stop playing the game sooner.
I could go on for hours about how many of the players simply wanted to hear more of the lore written, or how the unique ideas from the hosts allowed for a much more diverse experience from the previous forum danganronpa miscs… hell, even how the players themselves increased the quality of the game by adding their own roleplaying elements to it.
But I don’t really think I need to. I honestly think it all speaks for itself. I’m also lazy.
I will, however, note that the hosts worked with, and bounced off of the player’s roleplay and created backstories. This is most prevalent in the epilogue, but throughout the entire game there were traces of backstory created to reinforce what a player had said; this itself is most obvious in Trochilidae’s backstory, which he created quite a bit of on his own. And they did this all seamlessly, which is no small feat.
im also going to start doing 1 nom per post becasue i write a lot
