RPG Superstar 2012's Top 4 finalists have posted their final-round Pathfinder Module outline submissions online for public votes, and the winning submission will be published as a 32-page Pathfinder Module next year! Celebrity judges Sean K Reynolds from Paizo, Necromancer Games president Clark Peterson, Goblinworks CEO Ryan Dancey, and RPG Superstar 2009 winner Neil Spicer have also posted extensive critiques and commentary on the four finalists' submissions. Paizo Publishing's Creative Director James Jacobs also evaluated each submission, giving voters insights into the actual decision-making process a standard Pathfinder Module proposal receives. Voting goes through April 2 on paizo.com, with the winning Pathfinder Module announced on Tuesday, April 3, 2012.
“Every year, I look forward to seeing what the top four RPG Superstar contestants come up with,” said Paizo Creative Director James Jacobs, “and this year, with a journey to Leng, a trip under the sea, a fight against a plague cult, and a village infested by aliens... I'm really torn as to which one I'm hoping wins! An excellent job by ALL four contestants!”
