Announced at last years NTRPG Con. This year's, 2011, winner was "The Dungeon Alphabet" and Michael Curtis. Huzzah and congrats. Not sure if I could decide between that and "The Majestic Wilderlands". The judges that did were Paul Jaquays, Tim Kask, Rob Kuntz, Dennis Sustare, and Steve Winter.
The nominees included:
- B/X Companion (Jonathan Becker)
- LOTFP Weird Fantasy Roleplaying (James Raggi)
- Stonehell Dungeon(Michael Curtis)
- The Dungeon Alphabet (Michael Curtis)
- The Majestic Wilderlands (Rob Conley)
More info (the symbolism is pretty cool) on The Three Castles Award. Hmmm, but I see that link doesn't explain it. Well the top castle is Dave Arneson's Blackmoor from which creativity flows down to G. Gygax's Castle Greyhawk and Robert Kuntz's El Raja castle.
