Thank You! - Gold Award at the ENnies 2018
9 months ago – Mon, Aug 06, 2018 at 10:34:48 PM

This weekend was amazing!

The Midderlands – An OSR Setting & Bestiary won a GOLD ENnie Award for Best Cartography at the GenCon 2018 ENnie Awards.

You can watch the awards here (starts at the Best Cartography category for ease of viewing): https://youtu.be/_UiAhyIBK9c?t=1h3m39s

It managed to slip ahead of Green Ronin, and a silver-winning Paizo product to grab the top spot.

2018 ENnie Awards - Gold - Best Cartography
2018 ENnie Awards - Gold - Best Cartography

For those who don’t know how the ENnies award system works, you submit your products individually to the 6 judges. This year there were 512 submissions (including podcast and website categories). The judges decide if your product should be one of five nominations in the various categories. The Midderlands – An OSR Setting & Bestiary was deemed to be top 5 by the judges for its cartography! Then, there are 10 days of fan voting. I believe there are some other factors here, but the product with the most votes achieves the awards. As you can see from that, the chances of getting a Gold award are pretty rare, and it relies on fans to vote and support it in the final stages!

But WE did it!

When I say WE, I mean YOU – yes, you there.

If it wasn’t for the backers of these Kickstarter campaigns, there would be no ‘The Midderlands – An OSR Setting & Bestiary’ to submit. If it wasn’t for Edwin Nagy, Mark Nolan, Jim Magnusson, Juan Ochoa, Matthew Pook, and Peter Day, there would have been no book to submit. If it wasn’t for all the supporters and the people that went out of their way to vote, there would be no award.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN. You did this.

Special shout out to Matt Hildebrand (KS video), Randy Cieszynski (leather covers), Matt Finch (for S&W and the support), and Jason Hobbs (collecting award on my behalf) and anyone else I have been remiss enough to forget – thanks folks!

And a massive congratulations to all the other winners and nominees – specifically those in the OSR -- check them out here: http://www.ennie-awards.com/blog/2018-ennie-winners/
