I find it strange that the Savage Rifts GM Handbook is nominated for Best Rules, since it has fairly minimal rules and the Player's Guide has most of the great Rifts rules conversions. I suppose it stands in for all three core rulebooks though.

Glad to see Veins of the Earth so well represented! I think Broodmother should've got . a little more than judges' nod but it's a tough competition in indie RPG land.

Molzur's Marvelous Miniatures?

I just got a call from a guy called Nordenkainen the Mage, who suggests you might have spelled that one wrong...

I think at this point though, LotFP stuff and related supplements have stopped being "indie"

Indeed, I think it's very sad that the true indie star of the OSR, Kevin Crawford and Sine Nomine wasn't nominated for anything.

The wizkids nolzur and deep cut line on minis are both very nice lines..already picked up a few of each and now need to find the time to paint. Glad they come primered as well.

Morrus -

Thanks for changing the Aventuria Almanac link here. Do you know who is responsible for changing it on the ENnies website? It also needs to be fixed there.

The judges can't nominate products that weren't entered. Sine Nomine did not submit anything this year.
