ENnies spotlight: A Rough Guide to Glamour - Journey to Jonstown #24
Posted by Michael O'Brien on 21st Aug 2021
Co-author of the ENNIE-nominated A Rough Guide to Glamour Nick Brooke says:
"Our book A Rough Guide to Glamour was the first print title and the first Gold best-seller on Chaosium’s Jonstown Compendium community store, which hosts fan-created works for the RuneQuest tabletop role-playing game and Greg Stafford’s mythic sword-and-sandal fantasy world of Glorantha on DriveThruRPG.
"It’s a propagandist gazetteer and tourist guidebook to the capital of the evil Lunar Empire. Profoundly unofficial, it’s laced with Elvis, IngSoc, Blondie and Spice Girls references (among others), and has wonderful artwork by Dario Corallo, Julie Hudson, Simon Bray and Antonia Doncheva.
"Anyway, the Guide has been nominated for this year’s Best Organized Play ENNIE Award (that’s the nearest thing my hobby has to the Oscars); you’re eligible to vote for the winner, and I would be honoured and delighted if you’d consider voting for our book."
