Thought you were waiting for the noms to be up on the Ennies' page?

At last check (a few secs ago) that was not the case.

They posted on the EN World forums first. They say they are updating the site next, but it was probably MUCH faster to post on the forum. :)

Evil Hat Productions said...

Pleased about the Best Rules nom, and just a little sad to have missed the Best Game list by a thin margin. Somehow we'll survive. :)

Very pleased by the amount of indie product on there! Time to get the vote out. :-D

Robert J Defendi said...

Any chance of getting a post on some of the products that didn't make it, or is that too touchy a subject? For instance, I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on Murder in Marienburg. I'm reading the novel at the moment. It might also be interesting to hear some thoughts of pitfalls that can catch publishers and cause them nomination problems.

JimAlder said...

Id be interested to here youre thougths on my new faverite: E-RPG. I have been playeing it with my group since it came out. I think it was a year ago.

Ive come across a couple of other people on forums and stuff talkin about it, but thats it. I wonder if maybe i'm just crazy for liking it as much as i do sometime.

heck i wrote a wiki article on it.

Sorry about the lack of updates at the official site. I thought they'd post there first, but apparently it was a lot more work, and I think the board wanted to make sure the information got out there by what ever means possible.

As for discussion about individual products and my thoughts on publishers submitting products, I don't see any harm. I have to take my kids to VBS right now, and I worked last night, so sleep needs to happen at some point, but I'll get a post up at some point tonight.

Woot!

Paul, by "woot" do you mean:

"Wow, loot!"
or
"Waste Of Our Time?"

Master of the Game said...

Hmmm.

Anywho, I finally got some time at home to edit this, and included the HMs for Product of the Year: Eden Studios for Conspiracy X 2E and Paradigm Concepts for Tales of the Caliphate Nights. Sorry it took so long.
