Congratulations and good luck in the voting!

I’ll admit my bias by giving a special round of kudos to Hugo Solis for his awesome work on Book of Drakes. :D

I’m rooting for Streets of Zobeck! :)

Here’s hoping “Streets” takes the competition into a dark alley and … well you know what happens in dark alleys in Zobeck.

Drakes was clearly above and beyond art-wise (and design-wise, but I can see why the judges might have considered the topic too specialized or something). I don’t know all the other candidates for Best Interior Art, but I have every confidence that Hugo has a shot at it.

Of course, I think all four of them should win Gold ENnies. But I might be slightly biased. :)

Congrats to all those at Open Design! It’s great to see the smaller presses getting a lot of love this year. Hugo definitely deserves some love for the incredible job he did on Book of Drakes.

I was exceedingly surprised to be in the Best Cartography category this year – Blackstar Studios submitted the Shadowlands Conversion Guide for best maps without me knowing.

Good luck to all entrants! Go kobolds!
