I'm an absolute art fiend, so when it comes to categories like Best Cover Art, you think I'd be in good shape, right? Well, the problem is, so many book have rawkin' cover art. One measure of a piece of cover art's effectiveness is, "what does it convey of the setting? Does it make me want to explore this game further by effectively presenting an intriguing suggestion of the contents therein?".
The second measure, of course, is, "does it make me throw up the horns?":
This, I feel, is well-served by many entries in the RPG world.
Here's just a few of the pieces for products we've seen entered thus far this year:
Necromancer's City of Brass:
PCI's Witch Hunter (wish I had a bigger pic of it):
Aaand the Cover Art to Battletech's Introductory Boxed Set:
This will be a fun category.
