BEST SUPPORT, 2012

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.

THE Best Support FOR 2012 IS...

Dungeon World by Sage LaTorra, Adam Koebel / with 55 points

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.

 

THE RUNNERS UP:

Monsterhearts by Joe McDaldno / with 26 points

Joe McDalno is endlessly patient and a fixture in forums helping people play his beautiful game.

Lords of Olympus by The RPGPundit (edited by Brett M. Bernstein) / with 11 points

A alterna-clone of Amber Diceless with its own community.

Adventurer, Conqueror, King by Alexander Macris, Tavis Allison, Greg Tito / with 9 points

A tribute game rather than a retro-clone, which extends the game into the realm of duchies and kingdoms in an skillful way.

Monster of the Week by Michael Sands / with 8 points

One of the best of many Apocalypse World derived games.
