This is a unique and very subjective Sub-Award. It goes to the designer who displayed the best support of their 2007 published game or supplement. This could be through the creation of forums or mailing lists about their game, their response times to questions about their games, the designer's use of marketing to get the word out about their game, the organization of the game's website, and of course support materials like free downloads, rules, starter kits, materials, adventures and supplements.
For the 2007 games, this one was a close contest. It is also noteworthy that the top three games are also the top three in the Game of the Year (though not in the same order). Support is vital to a system.
The Burning Wheel website remains the best support for a game I've seen, the BWHQ on hand to coach and guide players and GMs alike.
The continued, active support at cons and online from the Burning Wheel crew deserves this award. The book also supports the game just as we've come to expect from the Burning Wheel HQ.
Luke is a machine. That is all.
The Burning Wheel forums remain the finest example of a small press community game forum...or probably any game forum. There are a number of burning gurus waiting to sharpen your Burning Wheel skills, hear about your Burning Triumphs and celebrate with you.
Luke and company continue to have the best support, because not only have they built a web page and support material, but a whole community that supports itself.
Stolze is a factory of ideas, pumping out supplement after supplement and distributing them via his proven Ransom Model.
Constant ransom/"free" supplements, this one takes the cake this year.
The online presence of the creators and the support that the Companion gave the main game line were excellent. An shining example of how to go about helping players enjoy the game, easily.
Jason's constant, reasonable presence in online communities makes him the model for non-crazy-person customer relations in the indie field.
This has been everywhere
Support from before the game existed!
