Thanks all, and considering the other finalists I'm happy even if V doesn't win. Better to lose in such august company than win among bad product...and all the nominees are high quality product! Liz, Jim, and I reviewed Heroes Journney by James Spahn and gave it a good rating, and while I haven't seen the others they sound top notch from talented authors!

Pardon the shameless self-promotion, but Victorious won the Three Castles RPG Design Award for 2017. I'm floored and humbled, since the honor is doubly overwhelming due to the very excellent competition (Heroes Journey, Maze of the Blue Medusa, and Treasure Vaults of Zadabad).

Its one thing to win against average competition, something else again to win with masterful competitors!

Excellent news Mike! That was some good competition! I won Heroes Journey and it is excellent, I own Treasure Vautls of Zadabad, but haven't hear much about it, and haven't read it myself yet. I've heard nothing but excellent things about Maze of the Blue Medusa as well. So great work on some fierce competition. Hopefully I'll get a chance to play Victorious soon!

Thanks, and the judges were first-rate OSR types as well; notably Jim Ward, Christopher Clark, Alan Hammock, Steve Perrin, and Jeff Grubb. So, I'm doubly honored!

Thanks Mojo, considering the competition its a real honor. Even if I do have to finally build that !@#$ mantle. ;)

Seriously, I thought the award would be like one of those high school trophies you get; except maybe a gold dragon where the baseball or football guy is. Instead, I get this huge piece of art with brass plates noting my name, the game, the year; and the five judges!
