I'm continuing Ennies Nominations Week here at One Yard Hex with a few shout-outs to an assortment of nominees.
The Sense of the Sleight of Hand Man
A drug-hazed shout-out to +Arc Dream Publishing and author and artist +Dennis Detwiller for their nomination for Best Adventure. The Sense of the Sleight of Hand Man is a campaign for Call of Cthulhu that takes adventurers into the Dreamlands and may just have a connection to the classic Masks of Nyarlathotep as well.
A Spark in Fate Core
An international shout-out to +Jason Pitre on his nomination for Best Free Product. A Spark in Fate Core brings the collaborative world building concepts from his Spark RPG to the exceedingly popular Fate Core system. Did I mention it's free?
Owl Hoot Trail
A rootin' tootin' shout-out to +Kevin Kulp and +Clinton N. Dreisbach for their Wild West fantasy game Owl Hoot Trail being nominated for Best Writing. I'm a huge fan of this micro-d20 variant and it's take on gritty Western mashed up with D&D fantasy. (Check out yesterday's post for a link to my own contribution to the game on See Page XX.)
And a dramatic shout-out to +Robin Laws for his game Hillfolk and its companion Blood on the Snow and their nominations for Best Game, Best Rules, Best Supplement, and Product of the Year. This was one of the most impressive Kickstarter campaigns I have backed, and should be a model to look to if you're considering your own crowdfunding campaign. Plus the game's pretty neat, too.
