ENnies Expose

An expose piece over at The Iron Tavern reveals what it is/was like to be an ENnies judge, and has sparked a lot of discussion amongst the RPG industry. Micah and I weigh in on some aspects of the article, be sure to read it and give us your two cents too.

Update: Hans Cummings, ENnie Awards Submission Coordinator & Publisher relations, responds to Chris Gath’s assertions in the comments. In particular, he points out a few things:

  • The expose author is a former judge who has had no relation to the ENnies since 2009.
  • Judges discussions are private, but there is more to the Edge of the Empire debate than is revealed in the expose.
  • Steve Jackson Games won 3 ENnies in 2012. Perhaps they are not as anti-ENnies as the expose makes them out to be.

Read Hans’s comment to get the full story, and thanks Hans for providing more information.

If you had the span of a summer break to run a campaign, what would you do to keep it from being three months of raiding a couple of wimpy kobold camps? In other words, how would you make such a short campaign epic in its own right?
