Thanks guys. I'm terrible at acceptance speeches. Thanks Ken. The problem with being indie is that you can't put anyone else up to the microphone for the acceptance...eep!

Unique; in a class by itself. From the Latin, "of its own kind."

(Yeah, google helps me look smarter than I really am.)

Congrats, Paul. My Life With Master is indeed in a class of its own, and it's now inspiring my own designs.

Recently I was reflecting on the stroke of genius that is My Life with Master.

What I have created in Burning Wheel is simply a system to arbitrate, "I do this!"/"No you don't!"

What Paul has done is to actually create a legitimate game where you can win and lose, centered around the manifestation of roles and idioms.

It's playable, well-designed, beautiful to look at and agonizingly fun.

Well done, sir. You deserve all the praise you receive, and more.

Thanks Luke. I think you should be pretty proud of Burning Wheel's Outie yourself. The recognition, in my opinion, is very well deserved.
