The William Blackfox Awards

Return to list of all Blackfox awards

Greetings –

This is one of the jobs of the Society Chronicler that I truly enjoy. I would like to thank all of the Kingdom Chroniclers for all of the hard work that they put into the newsletters, developing new talent, and administration of the job on the whole. It is truly a thankless job; if you are doing your job well, no one thinks about it and when it isn’t going well, you are known by all.

I would like to say that this year’s “Best Articles” and “Best Poets” nominees were by far the best I have seen. We had serious scholarly work as well as helpful information in how to play our game. It was by far the hardest section to judge.

Winners will receive a certificate, and the right to use “Master William Blackfox Award Winner, category, AS XLIV” in their newsletters with the Blackfox logo.

Congratulations to the winners,

Herr Otto von Schwyz
Society Chronicler
