News from the Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA) Trade Show: the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Campaign Guide has been nominated for an Origins Award. The guide, written by Rodney Thompson, Abel Peña, Sterling Hershey, and myself was nominated for “best role-playing supplement.” The Saga Edition rules were also nominated for best system. Attendees at the Origins convention will get a chance to vote for the finalists.
This is my third Origins nomination, following the Scrye Collectible Card Game Checklist & Price Guide in 2001 and Comics & Games Retailer (1998, I believe). All were labors of love, and it’s gratifying to be considered — especially as the nominations came from the retailers who specialize in these products on a daily basis.
