And the winner is… Sorcerer! Ron Edwards’ freeware-gone-print RPG of deals with various devils was judged by a panel of 17 semi-secret industry leaders to be this year’s most significant development-and-or-developer in hobby gaming. Also announced at last night’s awards party, a bit late due to the recipient’s absence at the Origins Awards, was an Origins Hall of Fame Award for Dragonlance co-creator Tracy Hickman. Congratulations to Mr. Hickman (there are people who still don’t know he’s a guy!) on this recognition of his enduring contribution to gaming.
