Forgive me losing my journalistic composure here, but


Ahem. Voting opens July 24th to the web-voting public, and runs until August 1. Expect to see a few reminders of that fact once it opens…

  10. TheMainEvent says:

    God, the pay offs and opportunity to sell our opinions will be ridiculous if/when CH wins.

    Please note, paying me to like 4E will be 50% cheaper then liking other RPGs. I do have some loyalty to our corporate masters.

    Mad Brew: Great to see two network members on the list, and good luck!

    Jeramy: Thanks for all your hard work!

  12. We at Obsidian Portal also feel quite honored to be on the list.

    I know I’ll be chewing my nails until the results are announced!

    Congrats on the nomination!
