Every year, around the month of August, a few select awards are handed out across a handful of categories. Voting is largely peer driven, with one award, "The People's Choice Award" determined by a larger audience of players.
The growing candidate list for the 2010 awards (to be handed out next August) is going to include an RPG Board Game called Heroes of Feonora. It will reside, quietly, among a broad field of largely 'pen & paper style' RPGs, from designers and artists who have all worked very hard to bring their creations to life. It's difficult for us to imagine a family-oriented board game, with no artwork, having much of a chance...but hopefully this will help us reach out to an audience who maybe grew up playing video games & RPGs, and find themselves in the mood for a little light adventuring now and then.
