D&D3.5 ruled ineligible for Origins award, voluntarily withdrawn by WotC

According to a noncommitally titled GAMA press release, AAGAD chair Nicole Lindroos and WotC RPG brand manager Charles Ryan came to the conclusion that D&D3.5 doesn’t fully meet the AAGAD’s requirements for nominees, and Ryan made the decision to pull it. “A second or subsequent edition of a game is eligible to compete in in the Best Roleplaying Game category only if a set percentage of the content is new and the rules are substantially altered in the new form from every previous form. Although substantially altered, DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, V3.5 does not contain the set percentage of new material.” The replacement nominee is Z-Man’s Cartoon Action Hour.
