Vencedores dos ENnies

Foram anunciados ontem os vencedores dos ENnies de 2008. E tanto a Paizo como a White Wolf detonaram, a primeira com 7 ENnies de ouro e a segunda com 4, ou seja, das 20 categorias mais da metade caiu nas mãos das duas editoras! E a Wizards como sempre mandou bem, com 5 medalhas de ouro, ficando atrás só da Paizo mesmo. Os vencedores em todas as categorias foram:

Fan Choice Best Publisher presented by Peter Adkison:

The Gold winner is…Paizo Publishing
And the Silver winner is…White Wolf Publishing

Destaques, claro, para o Fan Choice Best Publisher, que foi para a Paizo e deve continuar assim nos próximos anos, e para o Product of the Year para o Changeling: The Lost da White Wolf. Estou esperando o post do Sooner, o especialista em White Wolf de plantão, falando disso no blog dele!

Erik Mona, cabeça da Paizo postou um relato obviamente animado sobre a performance da editora na Gen Con desde ano:

Gen Con is awesome. It really is the best convention of the year, and given how damn hard everyone at Paizo has been working to build toward this moment, it’s definitely a mile-marker for the year. In fact, as a publisher I tend to measure my years from Gen Con to Gen Con, as we always release the biggest products of the year at the con and I always get a chance to meet with old friends I only get to see once a year.

This Gen Con has been particularly sweet.

We sold out of our print edition of the Pathfinder RPG Beta Playtest Edition in 9 hours and 8 minutes. That means that we sold out of every copy we brought for all four days of the show one hour and 9 minutes into the second day of the convention. Not bad. Great, in fact. I couldn’t be happier. The audience is really embracing our take on the game, and I couldn’t be happier. The future seems more assured now than it has at any time in the last two years, since Wizards of the Coast decided not to renew our license to publish Dragon and Dungeon magazines and basically threw our company and my life into turmoil.

The debut of our Pathfinder Society organized play program has been a smashing success. We’re running 25+ 6-person tables every slot at the convention. On Thursday, in the first slot of the convention, I got a chance to run the very first scenario for a table including my old RPGA buddies Rick Brill and Joe Cirillo. Convention gaming used to be a major part of my life, but I’ve fallen away from it in recent years as my convention appearances have become more business-oriented. It was great to game with old friends, and I loved getting back into the swing of things.

Oh, and we kicked some serious ass at the ENnies, the major RPG industry awards. Here’s what we won:

1. Best Interior Art: Classic Monsters Revisited (Silver)

2. Best Adventure: Pathfinder #1: Burnt Offerings

3. Best Monster/Adversary Product: Classic Monsters Revisited

4. Best Setting: Pathfinder Chronicles Gazetteer (I am particularly proud of this one, as I wrote the book and basically invented the setting with able assistance from iuztheevil).

5. Best Aid or Accessory: Pathfinder Chronicles: Harrow Deck (illustrated by my friend and neighbor kyle_hunter).

6. Best Cover Art: Pathfinder #1: Burnt Offerings

7. Best Free Product: Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Alpha (also by iuztheevil).

And the best award of all, the one I wanted most, and the one that makes the last two years of professional hell completely worthwhile:

8. Best Publisher: Paizo Publishing

Tomorrow we sell out of the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting and bask in the glory of what may very well be the most successful showing by any company at the ENnies ever.

Life is pretty damn sweet right now.

Wow, assim como o básico de Forgotten Realms e o Player’s Handbook do D&D 4ª edição, o Pathfinder RPG Beta Playtest Edition também sumiu do estande da Paizo antes do fim do evento. Esses nerds da Gen Con estão muito frenéticos! O cara tem toda a razão para estar feliz e apostando que o Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting também vai esgotar, afinal a Paizo definitivamente subiu para o ranking das maiores e mais importantes editoras de RPG atuais.
