In case you haven’t heard, we won the golden ENnie for Best Website! We’d like to say thanks to everyone who voted and also congratulate the Pathfinder PFSRD crew on their silver ENnie! We’d also like to congratulate all our friends over at Critical-Hits and Gnome Stew awards as well. We’d also like to apologize for not podcasting at the con, as it turns out, we may have bored you all to death anyway.

Thanks to all your hard work and your votes, Obsidian Portal won a 2nd ENnie. We took the gold in the Best Website category, beating out some really tough competition, especially the Pathfinder Wiki and the d20 Pathfinder SRD.
You won it, we accepted it
Of course, I have to point out that Obsidian Portal is only where it is today thanks to all the hard work of the thousands of GMs and their players who use it every day to make their campaigns more fun. Ryan, Dan, and I keep the machines running, and we add features when we can, but it’s all of you who fill it with great stories, wacky characters, and breathtaking worlds. For that, we express our deepest gratitude.
Pics or it didn’t happen
I didn’t get as many pictures as I’d like, but here’s what I got.
Just your average, everyday wasteland savage, riding high on his latest win and enjoying a beer. I thought I was going to a GenCon-style bar, but it turned out to be pretty far outside the con-zone, so everybody was looking at me like I was crazy. I guess you have to be a little crazy to dress like that. Hey, it’s what we do.
Jerry (dreadgazeebo), and I celebrating the win at lunch the next day. Jerry is holding this year’s medal, and I’ve got our gold from 2009.
