This is a unique and very subjective Sub-Award. It goes to the designer who displayed the best support of their 2008 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.
It's hard to wander anywhere on the internet these days without being struck over the head with advice, support and discussion for this scourge of indie gaming. But that's a good thing, right?
Dungeon World offers insane amounts of support - their Website is a rich treasure trove of resources for the swiping. Truly world class.
Joe McDalno is endlessly patient and a fixture in forums helping people play his beautiful game.
A alterna-clone of Amber Diceless with its own community.
A tribute game rather than a retro-clone, which extends the game into the realm of duchies and kingdoms in an skillful way.
One of the best of many Apocalypse World derived games.
