Writing for Pathfinder Society

Scenario Submission Talk


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

I read the rules for writing for Pathfinder Society, and it states that levels 1-7 are needed. However, no scenario covers 1-7. So, does this Mean that scenarios are needed for 1-5 and 3-7?

Also, Are there any royalties involved or anything? or do you just get your name on the front shet?

Pitch an adventure in either Tier 1–5 or Tier 3–7. Accepted proposals for Tier 1–7 will be trimmed down to only cover two subtiers anyway, so save everyone the time by picking one to start with.

We pay all our freelancers a contract rate for writing and pay no royalties.

Purely out of curiosity: Do you pay everyone the same, or does experience with the writer and their past work get them better rates?

Paizo Employee ** Developer

Everyone who writes a scenario gets the same rate. In general, more experienced authors get work on our other lines that pay on different scales.

Interesting to say the least. :)

So I realize this is the wrong section to put this but I have no clear idea where to put it and its related. What would one do if they wanted to write a proposal for a new book. Like I'd really like to write a book that dealt entirely with underwater adventures, settings, and aquatic races. For example I've got a really great idea for stats for a sea sprite (think flying fish meets medium size fairy).

How would one go about trying to submit proposals for new books for Pathfinder?

We do not accept unsolicited proposals for books like that. You might try pitching it to one of the many third-party publishers who produce Pathfinder RPG content under the Pathfinder Compatibility License. Paizo cannot even open any submission sent to us that isn't part of an existing open call, to protect both ourselves and the submitter.

Hey everybody! Is paizo still accepting open call submissions for Pathfinder Society quests/scenarios? Do they want 750 word pitches or the full 2,000 words? Thanx!
