Adding to its growing list of accolades, acclaims and honors, Archaia’s Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game has been recognized by the 2009 Gen Con EN World RPG Awards (“the ENnies”) in three categories. The awards recognize excellence in tabletop roleplaying gaming, and winners are determined by the peoples’ choice, with the final winners voted upon online by gamers across the world.
The Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game has been nominated for Best Interior Art, Best Production Values and Product of the Year. It was created by Luke Crane (Burning Wheel) and David Petersen, the creator of the comic series on which the RPG is based.
Voting is open to the public from Friday, July 24 to Saturday, August 1 at the official ENnies online voting booth. Fans of Mouse Guard and Archaia are encouraged to vote and ask their friends to vote, too!
The awards ceremony will be held on Friday, August 14, 2009 at Gen Con Indianapolis, which takes place at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Ind. from August 13 to 16.
“I am really happy that the game is getting the reception it has,” beamed Petersen. “The ENnie nominations reinforce what I have thought since I playtested the game: Luke made a fun game that really makes the Mouse Guard world a playable place to be.”
“Nothing would please me more than to see David go home with the ENnie for Best Interior Art,” said Crane. “David went out of his way to specifically produce awesome art for this book. The work he did put the comic behind schedule! I think he deserves much praise for his efforts.”
The Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game was also recently honored with an Origins Award for Best Roleplaying Game of 2008.
“[The] Mouse Guard [Roleplaying Game] is simply a fantastic product, offering the beautiful artwork and clever setting of the comic alongside a game system that is fun in play and encourages constant player involvement,” said Christopher W. Richeson on RPGnet, an independent website and community dedicated to tabletop roleplaying games.
