This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

I won a jillion RPG design awards.

Buy something. 100% of the proceeds go toward legal action against people this forum hates.

Awards are stupid but the recognition that comes along with them can sometimes turn into good resources.

I voted as well.

I don't even know 90% of those products :confused: The blogs and podcast categories seem especially narrowly chosen.

Still, gave my votes for 'Red and Pleasant Land' and some D&D products. And 'Mutant'

As the graphic creator of said award, I may be biased, but it WILL look snazzy on the cover of your product. I guarantee it or your money back.

Of course, Arrows of Indra nor Dark Albion nor Fantastic Heroes and Witchery nor Red and Pleasant land sport this award lending to my CRUSHING disappointment this didn't take off better.  :P

It would not be apropos for me to award myself this prestigious award.  That's the kind of thing the Indie RPG Awards and the judges at the ENnies do.

Fair enough. I believe they DESERVE the award, but I appreciate your integrity.

Done.

Voted for A Red & Pleasant Lands because:

a) It's a gorgeous book

and

b) I haven't read/seen any of the other stuff nominated.

But even if I had, I'm having a hard time imagining, that they can really match AR&PL in pure blood red purdy.
Running: Call of Cthulhu

Cocain is more popular than rp so there is bound to be some crossover.

Of course, I'd note that if any of the publishers of my games wanted to present themselves for this prestigious award, I certainly wouldn't object.

If nothing else, the epic butt-hurt of some of the usual suspects that it's been nominated at all is amusing to see. Presuming you haven't been photo-shopping the tweets on your blog. ;)

The Tweets are hysterical!

If you crazy kids haven't see ZakS's blog DnDwithPornstars recently, he's using the butthurt tweets as advertising for the ENnie voting.

Nice to be able to add Cam Banks to the no-fly list. How did I not find out before now that he's such a creep?

Ah, the Pseudo-Activists.  Always reliable for generating fame and profit for the exact things they claim to despise.
