The Ennie Awards

I am thinking of entering the Ennie Awards this year. http://www.ennie-awards.com/publishers/how_to_enter.asp

It requires 5 podcast episodes from May 1 2008 to April 30 2009. What episodes in the last year do you think I should enter?

I'd go with episode 28, 24, 23, 20 and ABSOLUTELY 14. The interview with Matt Vancil was pretty good too.

Good luck anyhow.

14? Really? I never would have thought to pick it. Why that one?

I agree on 14 myself, actually. Just because it's so generally useful in ways that some gamers aren't quite as likely to think about. It's also a topic that's less likely to have already covered in detail elsewhere. I would also recommend Episode 22 and 23 and the Fear Itself actual play (you do very good horror episodes). I also suggest episode 25 because it's another topic that most gamers aren't necessarily going to leap to right away.

14 is a good once because you cover alot of ground.

I think you need episode 1 in there to show how far you've come and because that has the story of Tom killing the cultist in London.

I'd say 1, 14, 25, 27, the Fear Itself Actual Play.

25 because, as you guys said, how many podcasts talk about "happy gaming"?

14 was a wicked episode. It gave good info on various materials that can be really useful for different campaigns, and the talk about CSI and Buffy still makes me laugh.

It's true the Fear Itself Actual Play was really good.

Tom's confession about being a cheater right in front of you is a classic, I laughed so much. Which episode was it?

One question I have, where I can get the earlier episodes of the podcast? My RSS reader only goes to Episode 18 and I would love to try to find some of the earlier stuff to listen to.

As far as which ones to put up, definitely put up the Wushu Dodgeball. I haven't laughed like that in a long time plus I wanted to get back into DMing after listening to it.

My picks would be as follows: Episodes 14, 20, 25, 28, and the Fear Itself Actual Play.

And, yes, Episode 14 is arguably my favorite episode. One of the most helpful and informative, among many.

Okay, picked the final list: 14, 20, 25, Wushu Dodgeball AP and the Fear Itself AP. Close contenders were Dig To Victory, the horror episodes (22 and 23) and episode 28. I didn't chose the horror episodes because I wanted a balanced and broad overview of RPPR and I think the Fear Itself AP is the best horror related bit we've done. Dig to Victory is all Scott Glancy's brilliance not ours and it was a toss up between 28 and the dodgeball AP but I felt that since we do so much AP here that I should put a comedic game as well as a serious game to show our range.

So do they just mail you the award now or are they going to go through the motions of pretending to consider the other "choices"?
