The coveted Skullie. Ooooo! Aaaaaah!

The TG Awards Show was hosted by Schornforce and Tommy and featured many, many past Traitor Game characters and even some future Traitor Game characters joining together for a gala of epic self-congratulation. The show took place in the famed Dorothy Chandelier Pavilion and was hosted by The Warners-- much to the chagrin of the audience.

The awards were voted upon by the various players and the first ceremony included all games from I-XII.

Unofficial Awards Edit

The Wolfram & Hart Lifetime Achievement Award had no recipient due to janitorial interference.

Miss Congeniality given to complainers.


Continuity Edit

To some players, the Awards took place out of continuity with dead characters like Darth Jubba the Sith Hutt and Severus Snape unexplainedly returning from their untimely demises. To others, the Awards were in continuity and provided grounds for the Rorschach/Question portrayal by Deadpooligan in Traitor Game XIV and the foundation for the grudge between Evinlea and Donna Troy which was the driving plot point for Traitor Game XVI. Of course, anybody who won an award will tell you that it is canon. Especially that Purple Skull guy.

Dream Manipulator Engine Edit

In Traitor Game XVIII, The Tenth Doctor explains the canonicity of the Awards as such[1]:

"The Traitor Game Awards was held by the Powers That Be. Used a dream manipulator engine. Problem with those things is that they never work quite right. Always end up pulling some people to the dreamscape physically and mentally, and not always affecting everyone it's set to. Most of the people from my last game didn't show. Just an example. But some people did experience it like they were supposed to. Just a dream to them. The ones pulled in physically could just think it's a dream, too, but it seemed so much more real to them. I should know. I was one 'em. Brilliant idea, though. Absolutely brilliant. There's really not a better way to pull people together from across the universe like that. Brilliant, brilliant Powers That Be."--The Tenth Doctor.

What that says in non-Doctor-ese is that some people were pulled into the Awards wholly and thus experienced the show just like someone going to the Emmys would (e.g. Evinlea). Others experienced it just like a dream (e.g. Chris Lang's characters[2]). Finally, many from past or unrecorded games didn't experience it at all, while some characters from future games did experience it.
