GenCon Evening

Booth traffic was constant and busy throughout the day with a few occasional well-needed lulls. Had another fabulous day. Funnily enough, had something of a run on True20 products and several people came up to ask me how GR felt about the 4E announcement. Attended the so-called "WotC/Publishers" meeting, where we found out that many people (self described "not publishers") were attending because of their eagerness to find out what was going on with 4E and the D20 license. More on that when I've had a chance to digest.

Dinner in the Marriott restaurant, found out that you get Marriott points for eating in the restaurants! Score! Wish I'd known that prior to the other two meals I've eaten here, but whatever... good to know. I'm SO into my Marriott points. The Marriott has never failed to treat me like a queen.

ENnies in half an hour... better get ready.

ENnies Voting Now Open

Green Ronin has had a hand in producing several items in the running for the awards this year (in some cases going head-to-head with our own work where our work for Black Industries is on the ballot). We're among fine company and it is, as always, an honor to be nominated. I expect the competition to be fierce as there are so many exceptional products on the ballot again this year. Best of luck to all our friends and colleagues!

We were also delighted that our friends at Firefly Games received nominations for Best Cover Art, Best Rules, and Best Game for Faery's Tale. This is great news, as Green Ronin will be publishing Faery's Tale Deluxe later this summer!

We would like to thank all the authors, developers, editors, illustrators, art directors, and graphic designers who worked so hard to make these great products. Voting on the awards begins next week and this is open to the public. The awards will be handed out at GenCon next month in Indianapolis. Thanks to the judges and congrats to all the nominees!
