I have a question for the next part of A look under the Hood:

How much of your time AME is taking? Do you still find time to put your creative minds to module making?

The question is important to me because I have considered to join AME but I have my first module coming and I wouldn't want it to be utterly delayded. Which reminds me of another question:

Can AME members' modules be nominated?

My question is:  How did your significant others react when you told them that it was super important that you play a whole bunch of games; and it's really really important, cause the community needs this.   Grin

Was there anything within the works of the finalist to inspire the creative panal to include into their own works?

When you found bugs that didn't break the module, but were jarring; did you report them to the author?  I know there were a lot of modules to test, was it a matter of just getting through as may as you could?  A secondary question would be did you vote on any of the modules you played or did you establish a policy against that?

Figured I'd answer this one now.  Yes we can vote on modules we played.  If you mean if we were a playtester, then no, that would be a conflict of interest.  We really can't vote on a module unless we've played it.

hmmmm, another question:  NWN is six years old.  NWN2 makes advances on the original, but what do you feel will be the next generation of buildable D&D RPGs, or will it ever happen?

(If you want me to stop, just let me know.)

next:  Is there any one module that is just so good that you compare all other modules against it?  And is there any one module so bad that it sets a standard as well?  If you feel like taking the fifth on this one so as not to upset anyone; I think that's reasonable.

edit:  I'm working on semicolon usage, does it show?

Ok, here's a couple more; for future if you like:  Do you have a favorite character you like to test with when a module does not have character requirements?

2:  There are a number of individuals in this community that have achieved a bit of a name for themselves.  You all work with some of them and play a lot of modules by others.  Is there anyone that has really risen even higher in your estimation since doing these awards.

3:  Since I have been working on modules, I have met a few people in this community that I feel are now good friends and important to me in my life even though I have never met them.  Is there anyone that you have met through this process that you feel the same way about?

4:  NWN is an RPG D&D based computer game.  The question is:  Do you publicly admit to being a geek, or do you hide it from friends, family and co-workers?
