Active from 2005 to 2007 and dedicated entirely to system-neutral GMing advice, Treasure Tables was one of the earliest RPG blogs. It was also the precursor to Gnome Stew, so we decided the best way to keep all of its content -- over 750 articles and more than 7,500 comments -- accessible to as many GMs as possible was to move it here, which we did in 2012. Comments are turned off, just they as were when Treasure Tables closed in 2007. The GMing material and discussion archived below was originally featured on Enjoy! --Martin Ralya

Treasure Tables has been nominated for an ENnie Award for Best Fan Site!

TT’s fellow nominees are Dragonlance Nexus, Liber Fanatica, Modus Operandi and Planewalker. They’re all cool sites — labors of love, just like TT — and if you haven’t already, I encourage you to check them out. It’s an honor to be nominated, and to be in such good company.

It’s also a huge relief to be done with this part of the waiting game — I did a little happy dance for my wife last night when I found out about the nomination. Thank you for helping to make Treasure Tables what it is today — without TT’s awesome community of GMs, and without your posts, comments, suggestions, and contributions, this nomination wouldn’t have happened.

Since they began in 2001, the ENnies have grown into the premiere fan-based RPG award: gamers vote to select five judges; those judges pore over dozens of products and narrow them down to five nominees for each category (ranging from Best Game to Best Cartography); and then fans vote for the gold and silver award winners in every category.

Whether you vote for TT or not, I hope you’ll vote in the ENnies later this month — being nominated means a lot to me, and I’m sure the other nominees feel the same. You don’t need an EN World account to vote, and it’s a pretty quick process.

Voting for the ENnies is open to anyone, and runs from July 16th through July 29th, with the awards ceremony taking place at GenCon on August 17th (which is pretty damned cool). Here’s the full list of nominees: 2007 ENnie Awards nominees.

I’ll post a reminder shortly before voting opens, and I hope you’ll consider voting for TT!

About  Martin Ralya (TT)

"Martin Ralya (TT)" is two people: Martin Ralya, the administrator of and a contributor to Gnome Stew, and a time traveler from the years 2005-2007, when he published the Treasure Tables GMing blog (TT). Treasure Tables got started in the early days of RPG blogging, and when Martin burned out trying to run it solo he shut it down, recruited a team of authors, and started Gnome Stew in its place. We moved all TT posts and comments to Gnome Stew in 2012.

  1. ‘Scuse the leet-speek, but…


    Congrats, Martin! I hope to see you getting a nice little whatever-the-hell-that-thing-is statue to put on your mantle.


  2. Thanks, Telas! I think it’s the “GenCon crazy gamer guy,” or something along those lines. GenCon did a mascot search a few years back, and he was the winner — he’s got something gaming-related in all six arms.

  3. Congratulations Martin! Although I can see the quality of your fellow nominee’s web sites, I have to say that I think TT has the edge here to win gold! Okay, I might be a little biased. :)

    You can count on my vote!

  4. AWE-SOME!

    TT all the way.

    Congrats Martin. You deserve it.

  5. Congratulations – you absolutely deserve that nomination. TT is a great site!

  6. Congrats Marin! Glad to see TT getting some love. You’ve put a lot of work into it and I was happy to see the nomination. :)

  7. Gah, or Martin even…. heh. shouldn’t post before I’m 100% awake. :)

  8. Congrats, Martin! I’ll definitely be voting for TT. Keep up the great work.

  9. Thank you for the kind words, everyone! :)

    Just being nominated is a big deal to me, and the next month or so is going to be nerve-wracking. (In a good way, though.)

  10. I know I’m a bit late to the party but allow me to add my congratulations as well.

    I’m late to the party, too, being on vacation this week at the shore (I live in Pa now, but still a Jersey boy at heart).

    Congratulations! I love the site and it is definitely worth the nomination (and, hopefully, the win).

  12. Thanks, Scot and Walt! You’re not late at all — the real party starts tomorrow, when voting opens. 😉

  1. TT Turns Two: Free PDF on Group Character Creation - Treasure Tables

    […] Today’s is TT’s second birthday — the first post went up on July 8th, 2005 (Every Campaign is an Experiment), but I didn’t start publicizing the site until July 11th, with Running a Campaign Website. Capped off by Monday’s ENnie nomination for Best Fan Site, it’s been a great year. […]
