  1. Not a bad idea. I'll toss up the intro story tonight!
  2. Yep. I pitched the book to varoius publishers and realized I was just going to have to bite the bullet and do it myself. I'm going to move to a PDF-only format in the future. Publishing is a lack of fun. I would only reccomend it to people that have no desire to ever have money or sex again.
  3. Yeah, the publishers have to submit products for consideration. So, if a publisher hands over their one kick-butt book, that book is going to see a lot of light. Fair enough and I admire your honesty. But just as a point of reference, you can't hurt a book's chances. The voting system is set up so that it only tallys "yeas" and "nays" don't exist. So if you only have knowledge of one book on the list, you aren't really hurting things. Thanks. I'm going against White Wolf, so I harbor no illusions. This is pretty much the end of the ride for me. However, as you said, there are a lot of good products up there. If nothing else, it's a good list for a PnP gamer to check out.
  4. The nominees for the 2005 ENnie awards have been released. You can vote here: http://www.enworld.org/ennies/index.php?do=vote If you've never heard of the ENnies, they are the largest PnP RPG awards around. Which is kind of like being the tallest midget in the room. However, such is life. The list of the nominees is here: http://www.enworld.org/ennies/index.php?do=nominees Now at this point I'm sure many of you are wondering: "What kind of scam is this!?!?! Where the **** is Wizards of the Coast! This is a lie! A sham! Plus, who is this Becker guy? Sounds like a spammer to me! Let's beat him up and take his lunch money!" These are fair questions. 1) You have to enter to get nominated. Companies like Wizards and Steve Jackson Games typically don't enter. Why should they? They dominate the market share and all their entry would do is drive their own customers to other companies. For what it's worth, I support a general "fan's choice" where anything goes and that award would almost certainly go to WotC. However, I am in absolutely no postion to see this to fruition. 2) This is a scam in one sense. I'm up for a "Best Writing" award. My interests are truly mercenary. If this irritates you, I would strongly suggest gimping my chances by voting for the "Valus" game, because the writing there is truly sublime. However, I'd obviously appricate a nod for "Murchad's Legacy". 3) Who am I? I used to post on the Bio/Black Isle forums. Now I don't so much. This is mostly because my brain is turning into tapiocia pudding and I get distracted by shiny objects very easily. 4) I only brought $7.43 for lunch money today. Please don't take it all. At least leave me with $0.50 so I can get a soda. Happy gaming folks!
