In closing, thank you to the ENnies judges for nominating us — and holy shit! This is a big pile of crazyawesomesauce.
Congratulations on the nominations.
Masks is great. I haven’t used it enough.
This is just incredibly excellent. Congratulations to all. 🙂
Thank you! It was a really fun way to start the day, and I’m excited about it no matter how things turn out.
Congratulations on nominations! Look forward to meeting you guys at the Ennies!
I was surprised by the inclusion of Masks in the Product of the Year category, but I really shouldn’t have been. I find myself returning to that book over and over, like a junkie to a needle, using the fluff descriptions for plots, twisting NPCs in creative new ways, and just reading it for the sheer variety of characters.
Well, that and it was written by a bunch of frakking bearded and kilted geniuses…
