Congratulations to the 2012 ENnie Awards nominees!
See the full list at Ennie-awards.com.
Some excellent Horror & Dark Fantasy entries in the list this year from Pelgrane Press (Trail of Cthulhu), Cubicle 7 (Cthulhu Britanica), Steve Jackson Games (GURPS Horror), Chaosium (Call of Cthulhu), Green Ronin (Dragon Age), White Wolf (Vampire: the Masquerade) and a few others. Of course there are some dark fantasy elements in the various Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder nominations as well. Traditionally Wizards of the Coast and Paizo do rather well at the ENnies, which is not surprising consider ENWorld is a D&D site first and everything else second. I’m usually more interested in who wins the Silver awards for each category.
Voting for a favorite will be rather challenging in a few categories this year. Pelgrane Press has 3 of the 5 slots for Best Adventure, which means they are competing not only against WotC and Open Design, but themselves as well. If you are a fan of the GUMSHOE game line, which one do you choose?
Voting begins on Friday, July 20 and runs to Sunday, July 29. The ceremony itself will be on Friday, August 17, in the Union Station Grand Hall at 8pm at Gen Con Indy.
So, which are you voting for? What on the list surprised you? Why?
