We found this awesome article while perusing Tor’s website, letting writers and fans of all things RPG know that there is an opportunity to become part of the action! You can participate in the RPG Superstar contest, the winner of which gets to bring their ideas to life. Check it here. The contest is being held by Piazo, who started out with the Dungeons & Dragons magazine. The official contest page is here.
Here’s some info from the article about what’s involved:
The first round of the contest—in which contestants design magic items—opens December 3 and closes on the 31st. The top 32 entrants, as judged by a panel of four RPG pros—then create a class archetype. At this point, the public takes over the voting and determines who proceeds to the later levels.
The 16 best of those go on to create a villain. The top 8 of those build an adventure location. The final 4 submit proposals for a full adventure. The winner gets hired to actually write all 32 pages, while the runners-up chip in 16-page versions of their ideas instead.
