Alex Sigsworth’s Selections: The First Mage Academy Awards

Who will win?

via “The 1st Annual Mage Academy Awards” —

The Well-Red Mage, the community-run blog to-which I primarily contribute now, is holding its first annual game awards ceremony. The finalists have been determined by the Mage Academy’s contributing writers, and now, it’s time for the readers to vote in comments for the winners, which will be announced in a future post. I proposed what became The 1st Annual Mage Academy Awards as a way of celebrating 500 posts. Think of me as the team’s ideas guy.
