ENnies 2011 Mysterious Lack of Paizo Products


Paizo General Discussion


So, looking through the submissions page for this year's ENnies, I only see two submissions for Paizo products. That can't be right! I believe this is the last week to get submissions in. Why torture us like this? Suspense-building? Last minute blitzkrieg planned to throw off the competition? Erik sleeping off his birthday slider coma has thrown off entry schedule?

Weirdly there are no WotC products on the list at all.

Things get added a bit at a time.

Fear not, Mairkurion! I received a note from Hans Cummings (the ENnies Submissions Coordinator) last week sometime telling me that a box of Paizo goodies was "in the mail." Once Hans receives the ENnies' copies of whatever Paizo has submitted, then those products will go up on the submissions page.

Alot of companies (Paizo and WotC included) will wait until the last week or 2 of the submissions cycle before sending stuff in. I imagine this is to save on shipping and to submit the year's worth of stuff at once. In reality, they probably just get a kick out of giving us the least amount of time to read/play their stuff.

I was wondering if it was something like that since what are now the 2 biggest RPG publishers, had almost no products submitted.

Yea, I have to send mine in yet.


We submitted products for just about every category, but they only upload the products they've "received" which at this point are just the electronic ones.

Hyrum.

Aw c'mon! You should have started some rumors about a conspiracy that I would've played along with. ;)

I think it must be some sort of conspiracy! I blame Elvis! Fluoridated tap water! Chupacabras on the grassy knoll!


Very good, I'm ready for another year of DOMINATION.

Local running joke - some of us played an online text-rpg at nationstates.net and one of my buddies created a country he said could best be described as "an angry Canada."

Well, I recall last year when I was a judge the last couple of weeks in April saw a continous procession of trucks delivering entries... the guy who delivers my coffee beans couldn't get his truck into the street and had to walk down! Just as well, I needed the coffee to stay awake to read all the books :)


Are you the same Megan who writes the fantastic reviews on RPGNow? If so, thank you for taking the time and effort.

As the husband of an ENnies judge, I would like to decry the lack of extravagant gaming table entries. Won't someone think of the spouses?!!!?!!

Liberty's Edge

Yes, Doc_Outlands, I'm the 'Megan Robertson' who reviews on RPGNow... and on my own site, RPG Resource. Good to hear someone reads them!


I don't just read them - your name is one of those that I *rely* on.

I'm trying to be more consistent in writing reviews for the products I get - hopefully, the karma will build up and if I ever happen to release a product, someone will review it.

Liberty's Edge

<Shuffles feet in embarassment...>

What I aim to do in a review is to let you know how the product will contribute to your gaming pleasure... enough so you can tell whether or not it will be something that will work for you.

It's good to hear at least one person finds them of use. I'll keep on writing...

... and when you write something, let me know and I'll be sure to review it!


:thumbsup:

Thanks, I would deeply appreciate it. Of course, the hard part remains - creating the product. ;)


There is no longer a lack of Paizo products.

Woot!

Excellent: time to update the list of ENnies entries on my site...

There's also a few 3rd party Bestiaries up there as well. The Book of Beasts and Forgotten Foes caught my eye.
