Paizo Publishing Kicks off Search for 2013's RPG Superstar!
Leading Roleplaying Game Publisher hosts annual open contest to find the best and the brightest amateur game designers
Paizo Publishing proudly announces today the launch of RPG Superstar! Now in its 6th season, RPG Superstar is Paizo's annual contest to find the newest talent in game design, and an opportunity for budding game designers everywhere to have their work seen and critiqued by game industry leaders. The call for entries opens on December 4, 2012 at 2 PM Pacific time and runs through December 18, 2012.
RPG Superstar consists of five RPG design challenges spanning several weeks, led by a team of celebrity judges, consisting of industry luminaries and Paizo game designers. In previous years, the initial onslaught of submissions was reviewed and winnowed down by the guest judges. This year's contest introduces a new twist, whereby the fans will be the first to get their eyes on the hundreds of submissions received in Round 1, and the voice of the people will choose which designer moves on to the next round.
The winner will be enlisted to write an official Pathfinder Module to be published by Paizo. Three runners-up will win assignments to write Pathfinder Society Scenarios, meaning all four finalists will be offered professional writing contracts with Paizo Publishing, and an opportunity to begin their game-design careers by working on the world's best-selling RPG.
Specifics for each round's challenge will be announced as each begins. The winner of RPG Superstar 2012 will be announced on April 2, 2013. Complete rules and a submission form are available at paizo.com/rpgsuperstar.
