At the award ceremony of the People's Choice Awards in Cologne, Germany Munchkin Pathfinder and Mage Wars scored a double-hit – Shadowrun was chosen the best role-playing game

Friedberg, May 11th 2014: This weekend for the fifth time the RPC Awards were conferred in seven categories at the RPC Germany 2014 in Cologne, Europe’s largest convention for role-playing games. The winners of the RPC Awards 2014 were determined via Internet in cooperation with – and once again the range of Pegasus Spiele’s games convinced the voters. Three out of four nominees in the categories “Best Role-Playing Game” and “Best Board Game” received awards last Saturday thanks to enthusiastic tuners.

The RPC Award 2014 for “Best Role-Playing Game” went to the rulebook of Shadowrun 5. Thereby the role-playing system set in a dystopian future underlined its great popularity among RPG fans. Also nominated in this category was the current volume of the classic horror role-playing game Cthulhu, based on the works of H.P. Lovecraft: Cthulhu: Die Bestie 1 - Präludium, which is the first in a three-volume campaign. With Cthulhu 7th Edition this role-playing system received a second award: The revised rulebook, announced for next year, received the Jury Award "Most Promising Product", which is already casting a glimpse of the hottest products of the near future.

In the category “Best Board Game” Munchkin Pathfinder scored with its mix of RPG elements and the distinctive Munchkin humor. The innovative fantasy card game Mage Wars made the second place in this category. Another Jury Award “Most Promising Product” was conferred to the new collectible figures board game Krosmaster Arena.
Thanks to the approval of the fans, this year’s award ceremony consolidates Pegasus Spiele’s position as the most successful game publisher in the history of the RPC Awards.
