Announcing an awards show focused on Supers RPGS - the BAMFSIES (http://bamfsies.blogspot.com/p/about-bamfsies.html)

WTF are the BAMFSIES?

The BAMFSIES are a cheeky and fun RPG awards focused solely on superhero RPGs.
We’re not nearly as serious as the Ennies. We’re probably more serious than the Grammys

WHY should I care?
There's a renaissance going on with supers rpgs right now - and it's not really reflected in mainstream RPG awards as those tend to be focused elsewhere.

So – the BAMFSIES aim to highlight the best in Supers RPGs.

HOW are you doing this?
We've assembled a crack team of judges from the tabletop rpg scene and we’ll be announcing the awards in a show on the BAMF Podcast in January of 2015.

But we don’t want to leave out the most important judge: you.
Visit our Gamer’s Choice page to weigh in on your favorite Supers RPG of the last year. (http://bamfsies.blogspot.com/p/gamers-choice.html)

Currently M&M3E is a strong third place in our Gamer's Choice poll. Please get over there and show some M&M love to boost it higher

Nice idea, Mike. Should make for a fun podcast.

I'm surprised to see the Valiant Universe RPG has gotten as many votes as it has -- not because I don't think it's a good game, but I haven't seen much buzz about it -- and that Atomic Robo doesn't have more considering it gets a lot of praise.

Thanks, Kyle.

Yeah - it's very odd about Valiant. Almost no online buzz - but it seems to have a lot of (apparently very quiet) fans.

I went over to the Fate G+ group and dropped a link to the BAMFSIES page in the hopes of finding some Robo fans. We'll see what happens :)

We had some folks who thought we should expand our Hall of Fame at the BAMFSIES
SO - we're running a two week poll over on on rpg.net. M&M 1e is on the ballot.
