Open call submissions and the Shadow Lodge


Scenario Submission Talk

*

After playing in the Shadow Lodge event at PaizoCon I was inspired to write a scenario. I don't want to use the Shadow Lodge or any of the characters from the event but I would like to use the collateral damage from the event as the impetus for my adventure. I know most PFS adventures exist independent of each other so they can be played in any order. Is there any problem with writing an adventure that takes place after the special event.

Obviously, this isn't official, but there isn't much of a problem using the Shadow Lodge event even with previous years' modules.

Spoiler:
The damage to the city, while extensive, is probaly mostly superficial. It wouldn't be hard to insert some flavor text about the rebuilding into any existing Absalom scenarios, as long as you try to make sure that nothing about the adventure sites is affected by it.

My best answer is submit it and I'll see. The worst I'm going to say is "no." :-)

And chop your dreams of ever being published up into itty bitty pieces!! Why Josh, WHY?!?!?

*look over at his ONE submission*

Oh yeah, need to submit more adventures...

Uktabi, if he says no, just try again... and again, and again, and again...

and again and again

I will say that I've accepted more submissions based on queries than on fully-written submissions, but I am developing one this week for July that I accepted as completely written, so it's not an impossible long shot.

Does that mean that you've filled up the current open call?

There is no "current" open call anymore. It's on-going. I have a number of annual slots reserved for open call submissions. I'll do my next wave of open call slush pile analysis after Gen Con and likely fill up a few more open call slots from it.
