Insert “Award Category Text Area” Here
MNTS was right. Grimbones, a.k.a. Harley Stroh, is on a training mission in the wilds of New York perfecting his ninjitsu skills and learning how to write budgets that balance (the other kind are really easy). I’m getting caught up on 2 weeks of back email and trying to beat a July deadline, so forgive me if I don’t post as often as I should.
And as MNTS noted, I really should be celebrating the announcement of DCC World. But to do that justice will take more time than I have tonight, so I have to settle for just one topic:
I made the cut for the GenCon ENnie awards.
A little weird, a little fun, and a little boggling. I don’t know quite what to make of it yet. Maybe it will be the universe's consolation prize for not getting the Vampire novel.
Every year a panel of judges pick their favorite RPG products from the submissions sent in by every game publisher on the planet. This year the panel included Richard J. Miller, Chris Gath, Joe G. Kushner, Jeff Ranger and David Temporado. Good people all around.
Iron Crypt of the Heretics, a Dungeon Crawl Classic, made it into the category of “Best d20 Adventure." The winners are determined by votes cast by the internet savvy public. I don’t have a rat’s chance of winning, but even making the cut is an honor.
Even more fun than the thought of winning/losing is the awards ceremony. Hosted from 8 to midnight, Friday night of the GenCon weekend, it’s the chance for gamers to dress up in semi-formal wear and shake their groove thangs. Any venue that needs to advertise “cash bar” has got to be trouble.
And you’re all invited as my entourage.
That way, even when I lose I’ll know I’ve got the best dancers in the house.
Between BWS, the 5 Wits, Jaleigh and Technobi, that category is on lockdown. We’re a freakin' marauding crew of dance pirates.
I love my life.
Anyhow. I’ve got a deadline to meet, so I have to cut this post short. Voting begins on July 17. I’ll let you know when the ballots are up.
