I’ve been reading my copies of Mothership this week. Perhaps a bit complex with some rules, but seems like a fun sci-fi system.


Thanks Morrus! I always learn about some game or accessory I should check out when I look at the Ennies.

PS Congrats to all of the winners!


Orcus on a bad day
Congratulations to all of the winners.

And now I can say I'm friends with the guy who did layout for an ENnie winning product. (The 7th Ed. Guide to Cthulhu Invictus from Golden Goblin Press). In the Year of the Cthulhu, it seems.
Wow, as close to a clean sweep as you can get for Chtulhu. Good on them.
Yes, but I probably should have seen this coming when the nominees were announced. They were basically obscure or Cthulhu. So naturally, Cthulhu one.

Not that that was necessarily the wrong outcome, and Seth Skorkowsky definitely earned the recognition he got.


Pleased to see three awards for Forbidden Lands (and a few others for Free League Publishing). Only just connected with this system, and I’m really enjoying it.

Minsc and Boo’s Guide to Stuff and Things, Adventure League Admins and Rich Lescouflair

Wondering why the credits changed to just Greg, who is a great guy but Rich is doing great work too.
