Thanks so much to everyone for making PPL Prime 2015 the best yet!

We would first like to thank all our gym leaders for the hard work they do to help make the PPL a success every year.

But other acknowledgments must be made as well!

We would like to thank our artist Lilia (cypressphoenix) for getting all the art done in such a short amount of time. If you’d like to check out some of Lilia’s other work or commission her please click here!

(We are currently working on a credits page for all our artists over the years so please stay tuned for that!)

A big thanks to Morganstern for helping design a lot of the badges this year without us even asking. You’re the best!

Thank you to the Diversity Lounge at PAX for hosting our table. You guys are one of my favorite things at PAX and we felt honored to be among the tables this year.  We hope we can be there again next year!

And a BIG thanks to Kim (nyankokimi) and Propriety for helping and showing us the ropes as admins! (Also helping us with the small emergencies that came up.)

Also a big thanks to all the dedicated challengers who look for those elusive green scarves every year. You guys are why we do this every year at all the PAXes.

We hope to see you soon!

Frances and Ryan (RoxasEmoQueen and DoubtedCarrot)

PS: The Hall of Fame for Prime 2015 will be posted by the end of the week.

(PPS: Propriety here. I want to personally give a huge thanks to Admin Frances and Admin Ryan, who stepped up to make PPL Prime happen and did a wonderful job. They did so much work!!! Everyone please thank them too. <3)
