The ENnie nominations were released this morning, and I'm thrilled that Shadowrun appears three times--twice in the nominations category, and one honorable mention. Attitude was nominated for Best Supplement and Best Cover Art (thanks again to the fabulous Echo Chernik), and Sixth World Almanac received an Honorable Mention for Best Cartography (thanks to the talented Alida Saxon).

Thanks to the judges for recognizing Shadowrun books, and congratulations to all the nominees!

Note that those are the requirements for the judges--in other words, the people who decide on the nominees. Voting is open to the public. You'll all be eligible, so I hope you'll all vote! I'll be posting more info when voting begins.

I wonder if those relationships would include adversarial relationships...

Me and WotC aren't likely to get along any time soon.

Indeed it is! And if you mention that you voted on the Shadowrun Facebook page, you can help meet the goal that will unlock a Street Legends preview!
