I'm delighted to report that Open Design has tied for the Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming. My co-winner is Jason Morningstar, for Grey Ranks.

I'm very, very happy about this, of course. Thank you to everyone who has supported Open Design to date. Obviously, I couldn't have done it without you.

Congratulations.

And who is Jason, aside from someone with the cool distinction of having a D&D weapon for a family name?

Jason's an RPG designer in the indy/Forge/story-games tradition. He was nominated for Grey Ranks, in which you play teenagers coming of age and to tragic ends in the 1944 Warsaw uprising. It's supposed to be pretty powerful but still fun. He also wrote Drowning and Falling, a fantasy RPG in which every failure contains the risk of drowning or falling, and (my personal favorite) The Shab-al-Hiri Roach, in which the players play college professors in 1920s New England competing for prestige. The kicker is that their campus has just been invaded by a millenia-old mind-controlling Sumerian cockroach, being possessed by which gives advantages during play but makes it impossible to win the game. Sounds bizarre, I know, but it's truly hilarious in play. I think his game company is Bully Pulpit Games.

He's also part of the Durham 3 podcast (www.durham3.com).

Wasn't Timothy Fork-Fauchard one of the drummers for Spinal Tap?
