Congrats to all of our Squiddie Nominees!

Nominations for this year’s Ongoing Worlds Medal for Superior Online Role Playing (affectionally known as the Squiddie Award) ended yesterday.  In case you missed it, we asked the entire online role playing community to nominate the best people, games, and clubs for the highest honor bestowed by this organization.  We received 41 total nominations for 32 different people/games/clubs.  And wow, what a great list it is!

Unfortunately, we’re only able to present the award to three (one person, one game, and one club).  We certainly have our work cut out for us!  Without any further ado, let’s introduce the nominees…

    Congraduations to everyone!

  • BaronVonLongman

    Awww….no nomination for me this year 🙁
    Good luck all!

  • Is there anyway to have my name dropped from the nominations as well as my game The Dark Cometh?
    As much as the Table Top version could use the publicity whether it wins or not. I personally am not a fan of these types of Contests and feel that there are other people better than I who should deserve this.

    With Fond regards

      You’re too modest! But yes, we’ll remove you and your game from consideration per your request. I hope the nomination at least helps your SEO a bit.

      Have a great week!

      • Thank you Charles. And I appreciate it greatly. Hope you all have fun with the reading and judging. Let me know personally if there is anything I can do for you guys. You’ve seen what I can do.

        Very Respectfully

          Will do! As far as doing anything for OW… just sticking around and engaging with and supporting the community is all we ask. 🙂
