Weekly Roundup: 2011 Ennie Nominations Edition

Well, the Ennie nominations were announced this week.  You can check them out here; perhaps you’ll see some names, products, and blogs you recognize. And no, we don’t mean this blog.  But it is good to see our fellow bloggers getting recognition, and some for things that aren’t even blogging!  Speaking of fellow bloggers…

At Daily Encounter this week, Obsidian Crane pondered the criteria for labeling a D&D adventure as a “classic.”  Lots of good points here, and definitely worth a read.

Blood, Sweat, and Dice talked about the positive effects of nixing the Raise Dead ritual.  We like the idea of making death a final event in a character’s life.  Sometimes it feels like raise dead is too… easy.

Leonine Roar wrote a basic primer on ways to increase an encounter’s challenge and damage.  While this may or may not be information you’ve read elsewhere, a reminder is always good.

Stuffer Shack listed the 50 things about D&D you won’t find in the books.  We found ourselves chuckling and nodding our heads at most of them.  True… so true…

Finally, if you missed the cute story about the little girl who interrupted her dad’s D&D game, and the ensuing hilarity, you can read about it on the WotC forums here.

What great article did we miss this week?  Leave it in the comments!
