Somehow, a whole pile of work seems to have snuck up on me. I’ve got a new assignment at FLS, I have lots to do for GR leading into convention season, and for the first time in a while I have freeelance work as well. I’m writing and reading proposals while assigning and being assigned work. It’s good that I was able to relax for a couple of days in Vegas.
Green Ronin is participating in the Origins Awards for the first time in years and we got four nods in the semi-finals. This is a relatively new stage of the process that provides a field of 10 in each category. The retailers at GAMA Trade Show are voting on those, which will winnow it down to 5 and those are the actual nominess. I was pleased to see the Pirate’s Guide to Freeport, Hobby Games: The 100 Best, Walk the Plank, and Faery’s Tale Deluxe make the short list. I still don’t like the super condensed categories. I also really think the non-fiction category needs to be re-thought or re-named. This includes magazines, art books, and other oddball stuff. Somehow, the Grand History of the Realms (for the Forgotten Realms) is also in this category. Wacky.
I probably should skip gaming tonight but I won’t. More Combat Commander awaits.
