Anybody know where we can find a list of past winners (don't say the ENNies page cause the links aren't working for me.....They just show a big blank page except for 2001).

I'd like to see an overall accounting of medals. Just for S&G. :confused:
Hm. Let's see... Alright, Google turned up this:

2004
2002

Didn't easily find 2003, though.

Green Ronin also gets "Best Publisher: Gold" (not the Best Publisher, Fan's Choice mind you), so it's easy to say that Green Ronin gets a little of the credit for WFRP's showing, as Akrasia noted ... ;)


It was a good day to be Chris Pramas!

Looks like it had not been awarded yet when I posted. I didn't realize I was missing one.(Someone mention it to whoever updates the front page).

There was a thread just last month on this here on the boards within the last two months, I will see if I can turn it up.



Congratualtions to the winners, to all the candidates for there products, to all that attended the ENnies, those that supported them, and to the staff of the ENnies.

I'm really pleased by how the ceremony went. I was fairly nervous about doing something stupid while presenting, but the whole thing went with nary a hitch. :D

Details when I have more time!

The awards ceremony was very well done all around from where I sat. The whole ENnies staff did an excellent job with it. Many, many people were well dressed, collared shirts, ties, etc. I would say the majority of folks there dressed for the occasion. The atmosphere of the ballroom was also great, white tablecloths and candles burning on the tables. It all went to really give it a professionally done atmosphere for the whole event.

Piratecat did great on stage, very well spoken and a nice amount of humor sprinkled in as the nominees were introduced. He kept the whole thing moving quite nicely and did good keeping people enterntained as the category nominees were introduced.

It was also nice to see so many of the nominated publishers in attendance. Green Ronin had many of their folks on hand. Erik Mona, James Jacobsen, Lisa Stevens were there from Paizo (and another person or two, but I missed their names). Monte and Sue Cook were both in attendance also. Peter Adkison was in attendance and given some time on stage and announced one of the winners. I thought it really helps add to the credibility of the awards when the nominees do show up for the ceremony. Many others were in attendance.

I took some pics, but they came out poorly so I probably won't be posting them. I know Denise had several people taking photos - often from prime vantage points, so i am sure those will look great when they get posted.

Everyone that worked on these deserves a hearty thanks. The whole ENnies staff pulled off what I thought was a very successful awards ceremony. Given with what we saw this year, I really look forward to what we will see next year!

There were some funny moments to relate, too. Like Erik Mona's war with PDF publishers, and some rabble rousing woman yelling out "take that Ryan Dancey" when one of Black Industries' awards was announced.

But I am sure you will hear more about that later. Must run now.

It went something like this. Erik was accepting one of the awards Paizo won and said something along the lines of he was glad things were going well for Paizo or he would have to be selling PDFs to try to make money (this part is loosely quoted, someone else may be able to post what the more exact quote was). I think he realized what he had said pretty quick as he backpeddled some on the PDF comment before he even really left stage. Then later on when Paizo won an award for the web enhancements he joked about his PDF comment as ironically Paizo was winning an award for the PDF web enhancementts they do. That was the gist of it, maybe someone can add to it.

So he'd rather be the editor-in-chief of Dragon and Dungeon than a PDF publisher? If that's war then I'm at war with PDF publishers too, and I am one ;)

well, i can confirm that the ennies made at least one sale - i went and bought Citystate of the Invincile Overlord for one of my old school gaming buddies, knowing how much he liked classic Judges Guild. ;)

Another shout out to Piratecat, who did an excellent job (as well as to Dextra, the Gelflings, Hellhound, Rel, Michael Morris, CarlZog, TruthSeeker, the judges, the winners and everyone else who contributed to the best awards ceremony at Gen Con - I think that covers everyone)...

Piratecat - I didn't run into you after the ceremony or on Saturday to congratulate you, great job!

The award show went really well I think. Piratecat did a great job, and consiodering a few hours earlier he was trying to recover from a nasty migraine (sorry for waking you Kevin!!) really makes what he did that much more impressive. Though I relaly hoped he would have opened with the belly button joke. :D

The Eric Mona thing was funny and ironic and I'm sure many PDF publishers jokingly gave him a hard time about it, but its really not a real war. I think he was tring to make a joke or refer to something Green Ronin had said earlier about them almost going under and PDFs helping them along or something like that.

I talked to many publishers though not as many as others did, and this year I did not hear a single compaint. I heard many ideas to impriove them more and we have lots of room for improvement, but everyonje I talked to was very pleased and happy with how things went.
