Ennie AwardsNominations for the ENnie Awards are out in 19 RPG-related categories. I’ll not repeat all the nominees here. You can check out the complete list at the ENnie website, however I’ll note both some expected and some interesting selections. Of course, I don’t think it’s any surprise that Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition is up for Best Game, but I do notice the absence of the Origins Award winner, Mouseguard. The others in that category include CthulhuTech, Dark Heresy, A Song of Ice and Fire, and Starblazer Adventures. Wizards of the Coast and Fantasy Flight Games are running for nine nominations each in eight categories, while White Wolf is up for 13 nominations in 11 categories.

Voting on the nominees begins July 24th with the results to be announced at Gen Con. In the meantime, nominations for Best Publisher are being open direct to the public.
