This is a unique and very subjective Sub-Award. It goes to the designer who displayed the best support of their 2008 published game or supplement. This could be through the creation of forums or mailing lists about their game, their response times to questions about their games, the designer's use of marketing to get the word out about their game, the organization of the game's website, and of course support materials like free downloads, rules, starter kits, materials, adventures and supplements.

THE Best Support FOR 2014 IS...

Deep Carbon Observatory by Patrick Stuart, Scrap Princess / with 18 points



Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade by Jack Norris / with 16 points

These guys don't stop.

The Clay That Woke by Paul Czege / with 13 points

Paul Czege is super-approachable and always ready to discuss his game and help out with any issues.

Paul Czege has his very own hashtag for people playing and trying to play his strange, evocative, swampy man-game. If that isn't support, I don't know what is.

Blueholme Prentice Rules by Michael Thomas / with 11 points

SexyTime Adventures: the RPG by Anna Kreider / with 10 points

Golden Sky Stories by Ryo Kamiya, Tsugihagi Honpo / with 9 points

Ewen Cluney's porting of GSS shows love and understanding of a wealth of untapped RPG knowledge of Japan. His perfectly run Kickstarter campaign and beautifully crafted game deserve recognition.

Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine by Jenna Katerin Moran / with 8 points

Dangers Untold by Shoshana Kessock / with 6 points
