Golden Crown Awards

Golden Crown AwardsI’m starting the celebrations for UK Role Players 10th anniversary or, rather, the planning for them, a little early. Ten years is a long time in the roleplaying world and there have been some great highs and lows in that period. This is your chance to nominate the best of them in the UK Role Players Golden Crown Awards!

The categories are:

  • Best Role Playing Game
  • Best Artwork/Production Values in a Role Playing Game
  • Best Supplement for a Role Playing Game
  • Best Official Website/Podcast
  • Best Unofficial Website/Podcast
  • Best UK Convention

The eligibility rules are simple. The nominated item must have been released (or started in the case of a website/podcast) between 1 January 2003 and 31 December 2012. In the case of a convention it must have been run, at least once, during that period. Nominations can be made in this thread, via PM or the contact form (linked at the bottom of every page). Closing date for nominations is 31 December 2012. Individuals may nominate any number of items in each category but each item nominated must come with supporting justification to enable the judges to make a decision for those items they are not aware of. Judging will take place during January and it is hoped to announce the winners in February (and possibly at Conception should that be possible).

I will be one of the judges, but I am looking for another four (to bring the team to five in total). Interested parties should PM me with their details. There are no requirements to being a judge other than a willingness to help select the winning entries and then be lambasted for those choices forever more by those who disagree with you 😉

If anyone has any questions please post them below. If need be I will update this post with an FAQ section.

Let the nominations begin 😀

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
