New Year, New You, New Thread! [Competition]

As we enter 2019, (or should I say Era XXVI?), it's a time of new beginnings: new characters, new plots, and new threads.

But that doesn't mean the past is forgotten, so in accordance with this time of reflection, I'd like to encourage the creative juices by offering one month of Companionship to the author of the most interesting opening post in a 2018 thread.
  • All new IC threads that are created from January 1 2018 up to and including December 31st 2018 are eligible.
  • Only the first post is eligible for a prize.
  • Threads should be nominated in this thread with a direct link.
  • The community shall vote for their favourite opening post from a list of a maximum of 10 nominees.
  • The reward of one month of Companionship shall go to the author of the opening post with the most votes.
  • If the winner is a current Companion, a second prize of one month of Companionship shall go to the non-Companion author of the opening post with the most votes.
  • Unsure of the benefits of being a Companion? Details can be found here!
  • This is not an official Aelyrian competition - it's just something fun to encourage creativity and for writers to acknowledge others' work.

So, with that said, nominations are open! (Have at it!)

Nominations:
[Jaedaxia] A Place in the Abyss (OPEN) (Straylor Leonard)
[AP] The Blue Falcon (Richter Glendale)
[ZA]"Recipe" means "take" (mod/Vree/Tali/others PM to join) (Hoskuld Coal-beard)
[PA]Book 5: The Adventures of Webfoot Walt, The Dashing Elf and the Blade of Death (Calanon)
[Countryside] Taking apart, putting together (indefinite and Talindra please) (Malicia Waxwode)
[Jaedaxia] Tome Alone (Darian)
[Daltina] The Exodus (Roost Verynn)
I Can Explain. (Sliucha) (Vireylda Saharn)
[Legion Camps] Goodwill Missions Willing Good (Sliucha) (Tiyribi Andares)
[ZA]Ooh, Shiny Magical Object! (Talindra Koranthil)

Thanks, Cal. Just needs a few people to nominate each other or even themselves!

Don't make me trawl the site myself, just to spend a little coin that's burning a hole in my pocket, lol!

Arighty...after some feedback, brainstorming, and navel gazing, the competition is changing...

Any opening post in a thread posted in the 2018 calendar year is eligible.

So...if you remember a thread from 2018 that had an opening that tickled your fancy for whatever reason, nominate it here!

I'll leave nominations open for all of January, and I'll even throw up a nomination of my own, to get the ball rolling, as it were...

[Jaedaxia] A Place in the Abyss (OPEN)

Thanks! That makes 10. I'll keep it open for the rest of the month, and if we end up exceeding 10 nominations, I'll prioritise users without Companionship, and then use the time-honoured tradition of dice rolling to randomly trim the list.
