ENnies 2010 Choices

ENnies Awards
I voted, have you?

This year’s ENnies Awards are now open for voting! Below are my picks (second place entries in parentheses) and some commentary.

  1. Best Cover Art – Rogue Trader Core Rulebook (Eclipse Phase)
    This year, I think the Sci-Fi settings had the best cover art, hands down.
  2. Best Interior Art – Rogue Trader Core Rulebook (Warhammer FRPG)
    The dark gritty art of the Warhammer universe continues its legacy of powerful imagery.
  3. Best Cartography – Pathfinder City Map Folio (Aces & Eights: Judas Crossing)
    I want big poster sized maps of Golarion. Paizo has some excellent cartographers.
  4. Best Writing – Kerberos Club (Fantasy Craft)
    I have a really big soft spot for Victorian fantasy…
  5. Best Production Values – Pathfinder Core Rulebook (Eclipse Phase)
    PFRPG is really top notch work, which seems to be a hallmark of Paizo products.
  6. Best Rules – Hero 6th
    I’m a huge fan of crunch, and it doesn’t get more crunchy than Hero.
  7. Best Adventure – Pathfinder AP #31: Stolen Land (The Grinding Gear)
    Both of these are old school style adventures. Kingmaker marks the first sandbox style Adventure Path.
  8. Best Monster/Adversary – Pathfinder: Classic Horrors Revisited (Pathfinder Bestiary)
    When it comes to baddies, the classic horrors don’t disappoint.
  9. Best Setting – Kerberos Club (Gobling Markets)
    Remember that soft spot for Victorian fantasy?
  10. Best Supplement – Rebellion Era Campaign Guide (Mysteries of Hollow Earth)
    The Star Wars SAGA went out with a bang when they released the sourcebook for the classic trilogy.
  11. Best Aid or Accessory – Campaign Coins (Gaming Paper)
    I covet those coins, don’t know what I’d really do with them, but they’re shiny!
  12. Best Miniature Product – Alkemy Minis (Fortress of Redemption)
    The Alkemy minis have some excellent sculpts.
  13. Best Regalia – Grind (Buried Tales of Pine Box, Texas)
    A board game of steam-powered destruction!
  14. Best Electronic Book – Shambles (The Great City Player’s Guide)
    It’s about time a game embraced being the zombie!
  15. Best Free Product – Wayfinder #1 (Advanced Players Guide Playtest)
    Wayfinder is an excellent magazine made by PFRPG fans.
  16. Best Website – d20PFSRD.com (Pathfinder Wiki)
    These sites have been essential for my PFRPG gaming needs.
  17. Best Podcast – NewbieDM (Open Design)
    I think Newbie has a great format with his short mini-casts.
  18. Best Blog – Kobold Quarterly (NewbieDM)
    KQ churns out a lot content, that I’ve actually used.
  19. Best Game – Pathfinder (Hero 6th)
    I think the combination of solid rules and great fan support from Paizo make PFRPG the best game.
  20. Product of the Year – Pathfinder (Eclipse Phase)
    I’ve said enough about PFRPG, but Eclipse Phase is a close second because of how they published their rules.
  21. Best Publisher – Paizo (Pinnacle Entertainment Group)
    Paizo has captured many a fan’s heart through their dedication to their player base.

Congratulations to all the nominees and good luck in the voting.

  1. Catalyst Games deserves more love, man. Eclipse Phase is great but Shadowrun20th and the Art of Mechwarrior deserves some appreciation too.
