RPG Superstar Announces 4 Finalists
Paizo to Publish Grand Prize Winner's Pathfinder Module
Four amateur game designers have advanced to the final round of Paizo Publishing’s RPG Superstar 2010, the largest open-call tabletop roleplaying design contest in history. Professional gaming cartographers Robert Lazzaretti and Corey Macourek joined celebrity judges Sean K Reynolds and F. Wesley Schneider from Paizo and Necromancer Games president Clark Peterson to critique a fully mapped complete Pathfinder RPG encounter.
The Top 4 finalists for RPG Superstar 2010 and their winning entries to date are:
Having designed new magic items, creatures, traps, and encounters, the Top 4 will now be required to write a full adventure module proposal for an installment of Paizo’s award-winning Pathfinder Modules line of "one shot" adventure modules. Paizo’s Creative Director James Jacobs will join the celebrity judges to comment on the four submissions, and the 100,000+ users of paizo.com will vote on their favorites. The proposal with the highest number of votes will be published by Paizo as a 32-page Pathfinder Module in early 2011. Previous RPG Superstar-winning modules include 2010’s Realm of the Fellnight Queen, by Neil Spicer, and 2009’s Clash of the Kingslayers, by Leandra Christine Schneider.
Contestants must submit their 3000-word Pathfinder Module proposal to Paizo by 2:00 PM Pacific time on Friday, March 12, 2010. On March 16, the entries and judge comments will be revealed to the general public, who will then get to discuss the entries and vote for their favorites. Voting ends on March 22, and the 2010 RPG Superstar and his winning Pathfinder Module proposal will be announced on March 23, with the winning module to be published in early 2011.
