Is There an Overdone Topic Area?


Scenario Submission Talk


What I'm getting at, is there somewhere that is regularly updated, saying "hey guys, for whatever reason 102% of the last submission batch had midlevel tomatos as the villian, and half of them took place in and around Sandpoint. So vary up the villians and locations. Been kinda interested in seeing what people come up with for adventures set in Darkmoon Wood."

I've looked around and not seen anything, so I'm guessing not. Still, had to ask.

If such a list exists, I've seen nothing of it.

Not that you asked, but here is a post about good things, imho, to add into mods: Painlord likes to cause Pain.

Right now, the things I'm trying to avoid are

murder mysteries
genies
Jistka Imperium

If a great pitch came across my desk with one of these elements, I'd probably reconsider, but right now, these things are overdone and I'm giving them a little break.


Painlord, thanks for the link.

Mark, thanks for the heads up. I was about to try writing a murder mystery too, so now I'm especially glad I asked. Not even sure what the Jistka Imperium is, so that shouldn't be a problem...

As long as it wasn't titled 'I Scream of Jeanie'...


As long as you avoid everything that is on this site you should be ok.

Ah, darnit, I linked to that site again...

Hmmm, I've been working on a scenario for PFS which centered upon a mystery (mainly b/c I'd noticed the glut of similar games). I think I'll go ahead and submit it since your open call text says that you try to give feedback (any suggestions that can be provided on how to craft better scenarios would be very appreciated). On the bright side it isn't (necessarily) a murder mystery. And I did my best to incorporate a number of story elements so that it had a few sides to be explored. I'd mention the name I plan to title it, but that would be kind of pointless. After all, if it's good enough to stand on its own, it has to be good enough to grab your attention, too.

I'll think of it as a chance to familiarize myself with your process and, in the meantime, dream up something that you hopefully haven't seen before.

Thanks for asking this question, Fraust! That was smart, wish I'd thought of it in advance, lol. And thank you for providing us with extra direction, Mark. I hope we (and Paizo) are able to capitalize upon it. Cheers!

I see now why my murder mystery incorporating a genie was declined.

No, not kidding. Well, you live and learn.

Fraust, thank you for asking this question. It was very helpful to me.
