Special Modifications Nominated for 2017 Origins Award

Star Wars Edge of the Empire Special Modifications, a sourcebook for Technicians, is nominated for a 2017 Origins Award in the RPG category. I was one of the writers. It's an honor to be considered in what is a highly competitive category with a lot of great RPG products. The Star Wars The Force Awakens RPG Beginner Game is also nominated in the same category. 

The complete list of Origins Awards nominees is here. 

ENnie Voting and Origins Awards

Voting for the ENnie awards is now open. The Star Wars RPG and Minis games received several nominations. I wasn't involved in these fine products, although I believe the Order 66 crew used at least one of the episodes I was in as one of their samples to the jury during the nomination process.

The Star Wars products up for awards this year are:

  • Star Wars RPG: Scum and Villainy for Best Cartography.
  • Star Wars RPG: The Clone Wars Campaign Guide for Best Supplement & Product of the Year.
  • Star Wars Miniatures Clone W ars Starter S et for Best Miniatures Product.
  • Order 66, the SW RPG fan podcast is up for Best Podcast.
  • Fan Award for Best Publisher includes Wizards of the Coast and d20 radio, among a multitude of others, large and small. 

Also, I didn't mention it here earlier, but my own Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide was nominated for Best Supplement in the Origins awards, but didn't win this year. The main Saga Edition rulebook was up for best RPG, but also came up short (it won two ENnies last year, though). The Clone Wars Minitures set did win best miniatures product, however.
