Debut Author AME 2007 NWN Award Winner!

I could not be more proud than to announce that I won the AME Golden Dragon Award for Debut Author for Soul Shaker! I was extremely pleased simply to be nominated from among all the great work that had been produced in 2007, but to then win this category is truly a great honour and probably the most satisfying award I have ever won. There is also a podcast that speaks about the finalists to be found here: podcast.

D&D has been a near life-long hobby of mine, and for many years I have written material for the same group of players. They have always said they enjoyed my work, but I have never known how it compared with other authors. Soul Shaker was my first tentative step for a larger audience and I did not know how well it would be received. The award has made everything I have done worthwhile, as it comes from a group of people who share the same love of a hobby as I do, and to be recognised by ones peers in this way is truly a delight.

Thanks to everybody who supported my work over the years, from the oldest players to the newest. I hope I am able to bring new works to more players in the years to come.

Congratulations Lance! It is well deserved. I really enjoyed Soul Shaker and really felt it was ground breaking in the play style, game system and story. It's not too often you say "Wow! I've never seen that before." in a game that's been out for as long as NWN has.

The module speaks for itself. It really belongs in the list of the best of the best.

Congratulations on getting your 10th vote so Soul Shaker gets on the top rated module list where it belongs.

Again congratulations, Lance.

Hi Tybae,

Thanks for your comments. To say, "It really belongs in the list of the best of the best." is a really great compliment.

I hope my future modules have something to offer that will give equal pleasure.

Lance.
