2005 ENnie Nominations


Social Justice Wizard
I am pleased and honoured to announce the nominations for the 2005 Gen Con EN World RPG Awards. On behalf of the judges and the Board of Directors, I would like to congratulate those nominated, and indeed, everyone for their work in the past year. Some of the categories were quite contentious with some fine submissions making for more than one close call.

Congratulation to all the hard working and talented individuals nominated.

And a special tip'o'the'hat to those who have not previously been recognized by the ENnies!


Slumbering in Tsar
I guess WotC didn't enter again this year...

Hats off to BiggusGeekus for Murchad’s Legacy (Parent’s Basement Games)!

Would it be possible to denote the game system that each of the nominees are in? I certainly have no clue about some of the ones above and I'm sure others are in the same boat.

My thanks to all of the judges for their hard work, and of course for the honor of our nomination.

Congratulations to all of the other nominees!

Congratulations to all the nominees. This year there were many, many excellent entries. I know I had a very difficult time narrowing my choices down in many categories (and from the discussions we had, so did the other judges). Best of luck to everyone in the voting!

Dextra, is that the order that the awards will be announced in? (I must have the order right before I open the booth).

EDIT: Nevermind - I'll launch it with this order - it can't be that far off and it's not that important that the voting list matches the order given out anyway (IMO)

That is a great list of products and publishers! I cannot even imagine how much material the reviewers had to go through...thanks!

A shame some major publishers are out...especially with WW and WHFRP in. I think it would be an even fight no matter what.


First Post
The d20 Game should be d20/OGL game as Blue Rose and Arcana Evolved aren't d20 games but outside of that quibble, it looks like a fantastic running.

It'll be interesting to see how all the '2nd' edition publishers, Warhammer 2nd ed's Black Industiries and White Wolf's new World of Darkness, come out against some of the other fans of more established settings and games.


*smiling* I believe the comment out of Clueless upon Planewalker being nominated was 'BOOOYAAAHHHH'.

*smile* It's an honor and we're pleased as punch to be listed on the same page here as the other people nominated for ENnies this year. Some surprises on the various lists, and some expected. This will be damned interesting to see, but everyone is deserving that's gotten up here. Congrats to all involved.



w00p!! *happy dance* Luck to all, but - wow - *grins wildly*

Ok - now I can have a more calm and rational response (really!) - it's an honor to be nominated, and we'd like to thank the judges so much for nominating us. I'm looking forward to this. Congradulations to all!

Now to check out the websites before making my voting decisions - also time to try and check some of the books out (at least the cover art I can easily see without purchasing)

Somehow not unexpected that there are a lot of nominations for Green Ronin, Malhavoc, White Wolf, Mongoose and Necromancer Games in there.
