Gen Con Retrospective: Friends, Photos, and ENnies!
Gen Con 2014 was a great time for us. One of the most satisfying things from any convention is getting to catch up with our friends in the gaming community and supporters of Savage Worlds, and this year was no different. To those of you who came to any of our panels, the Pinnacle Seminar, or by the booth, thanks. To those of you who didn’t, be sure to see us next time we’re around.
In this age, seeing friends means taking pictures. Some of those photos you can find in our feeds on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook. If you’ve got pictures of us out there, please be sure to tag them so we can find them, too!
Oh, I almost forgot—we won a couple of ENnies while we were there, too! Weird Wars: Rome won a judges spotlight award, and Deadlands Noir won the Silver ENnie for Best Setting.
We weren’t the only Savage Worlds winners, though: Sneak Attack Press’ Broken Earth also won a Silver ENnie, and Modiphius’ Achtung! Cthulhu: Keeper’s Guide to the Secret War won two! Congratulations to all the ENnies winners!
We’re already looking forward to next year (with more on that in the next article)!
ENnies Voting Opens and We’ve Already Won!
The ENnie Awards are now open for voting, and things are already going well for Pinnacle and the Savage Worlds community!
Thanks to you, Weird Wars Rome has already won the 2014 Judge’s Spotlight Award! We couldn’t be happier or more grateful.
We’re especially proud of Deadlands Noir and all the work that John Goff and Cheyenne Wright have put into it. We’d love for you to consider it for Product of the Year and Best Cartography for the amazing New Orleans and Hexaco maps.
A vote for Pinnacle for Publisher of the Year wouldn’t hurt our feelings a bit, either. You know you’d feel better if you did.
Be sure to look through the nominations closely. There are other Savage Worlds products in there, and some of your favorite Savage Worlds licensees, as well. Take a minute and check out all the fantastic games our friends throughout the gaming industry have created and support their efforts with your votes.

ENnies Voting Now Open!
Here’s another chance for you to make your voice heard—ENnie Awards voting is open until July 29.
We told you last week that our own Savage Worlds Deluxe core rulebook is nominated in the Best Game category and Reality Blurs‘ Agents of Oblivion is nominated in the Best Supplement category. What we didn’t know is just how strong a showing the Savage Worlds family would have in the Fan Favorite Publisher category.
Not only did you nominate Pinnacle Entertainment Group (for which we thank you), but there’s a host of Savage Worlds licensees as well: Atomic Overmind, GRAmel Editions, Mutha Oith Creations, Nevermet Press, Reality Blurs, Super Genius Games, and Triple Ace Games. Congratulations to you all! [There may even be more—nominees were not alphabetically sorted, so pay close attention.]
This is also your chance to vote for the 2013 ENnies judges. These are the folks who decide what submissions make it to open voting, so your votes for judges can make a real difference in the nominees.
So what are you waiting for? Go vote today!
