CotY 2019 Results!

It’s been a long time coming, but at last we have a bit of closure for the tabletop gaming world. Yes friends, the results for our 2019 Campaign of the Year vote are in! Dark forces out in the universe tried really hard to keep us from our proverbial “appointed rounds”, but they could not stop our diligent Selection Committee, or your vote. The best that they could achieve, was to slow us down but a little (maybe a tad more than “a little”, but hey, we’re being optimistic here!).

So let’s not permit another moment to slip by! Onward, to the results!

And the results for 2019’s Campaign of the Year…

Although the race was very close (with the winner and runner up separated by a smidge over 5% of the vote), “there can be only one” as the saying goes. Having captured a whopping 40.51% of the available ballots, the title of Campaign of the Year for 2019 goes to Conan_Lybarian’s 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons campaign The Cold Truce!

Congratulations to Conan_Lybarian and all of the players of this awesome game! We also tip our hat to our fantastic runner up, jaythegreenling’s Dragon Age campaign, First Blight – which will not be going home empty-handed. Additionally, we offer up our thanks to all of the contenders for their hard work, and the wonderful stories and characters they have brought to us. Finally, thanks to you for being with us through it all, and for casting your vote.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a competition without some exciting prizes! This time around we had the good fortune of partnering up with some truly amazing companies, and we are beyond thankful for their generous contributions (seriously, I’m jealous over here!).

The prizes for the 2019 winner and runner up!

Our partners for this year’s Campaign of the Year really stepped it up for Obsidian Portal, so please do us a huge favor and visit their sites and social media pages. Help us share the love, and pick out a few great games or products for your group while you’re there. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed with what you find. Now, let’s check out those prizes!

Our winning Campaign of the Year for 2019 has won the following:

  • One free year of Ascendant membership on Obsidian Portal!
  • Core Book PDF’s from Pelgrane Press, makers of titles such as 13th Age, Night’s Black Agents, Trail of Cthulhu, and more!
  • New campaigns from Mongoose Publishing, like Traveller’s “Pirates of Drinax”.
  • Modiphius Entertainment discount codes for their online store.
  • ATMA: The Roleplaying Card Game bundles from Meromorph Games
  • Paizo’s Pathfinder Second Edition and Starfinder Corebook PDF’s and Beginner Boxes
  • An entire R. Talsorian Games digital library – everything they have available on DriveThruRPG!

Our runner up for Campaign of the Year 2019 has won:

  • A PDF copy of the new Cyberpunk RED!

We still have more CotY goodness to come!

As we mentioned in our announcement post for the 2019 vote, we have the vote for 2020’s Campaign of the Year currently scheduled for February 14th. We don’t anticipate this date changing, but if some unforeseen circumstance does require an adjustment, we’ll be sure to let you know. February 2021’s Campaign of the Month will be posted in the next couple of days, and from there we’ll be back on our normal schedule (huzzah!). Be sure to keep nominating your favorite campaigns so that they can have a shot at a feature post of their own – and we’ll be back soon with another featured campaign.

Award Winning!
