The open seas, they call to you!

Pull up a chair, Pathfinder, and tell your tales to this here old sea dog…. Tell me of the reefclaws and great whites of the Lost Coast! Or have you skirted the Eye of Abendigo, sailed with the Free Captains of the Shackles? Perhaps you could tell me about sailing out of Quantium, through the polluted waters of the Miasmere, or along the Coast of Graves of Osirion? Do you have tales of the Steaming Sea, with the fast ships of the Mordant Spire elves? Ah! Perhaps you are an explorer, crossing the Arcadian Ocean to search the remnants of Azlant, or the wild lands of Arcadia! Tell me! Barkeep, my friend here has tales to tell…keep his mug filled!

Goal
The goal for the fanzine is to create a collection of fan-created articles and supporting art set in Paizo’s Pathfinder Chronicles world of Golarion.
The theme for Wayfinder #8 will be focusing on the seas and coasts of Golarion! Please use the Inner Sea World Guide as your main reference (as well as that handy-dandy PathfinderWiki)! In the case of a plethora of articles on similar subjects, preference will be given to articles that follow this theme. As always, crunch, fiction, and flavor articles are welcome!
In addition, writers can submit to one of several regular series featured in Wayfinder:


  • Advice: Have some advice you want to pass on to new GMs or players to the world of Golarion?
  • Bestiary: New creatures to terrorize your PCs with!
  • Of Chance and Skill: Games, new to or adapted for Golarion, to play at your table!
  • Prestigious: This article is devoted to a new prestige class for the world of Golarion.
  • Realm Building: The Kingmaker Adventure Path introduced a lot of new goodies for building armies, cities and kingdoms. This column is focused on building upon those rules.
  • Side Treks: Side Treks feature short outlines for a sidetrek adventure set in a particular Pathfinder adventure, from the products listed below. One sidetrek outline per submission for this column. Please reference earlier Wayfinders for the layout for this article. Submission size: 325 words.
  • Tales from the Front: Fiction articles based on any of Paizo’s adventure modules or paths.
  • Weal or Woe? Two NPCs (including statblocks), one helpful, one not so much. Include hooks for the PCs to know (or hate) this NPC and how to use them in a campaign. Include a boon (Weal) and drawback (Woe) for the NPCs in your article. Please reference earlier Wayfinders for the layout for this article.

Guidelines

  • Thou shalt not disregard canon, thou shalt build upon it.
  • Keep in mind thy audience. Keep it PG-13. No slash fic/porn fantasies, cheesecake/beefcake/fan service.
  • Short and sweet. Unless otherwise specified, article sizes are 750 and 1,500 words. These are HARD targets, not a range, so come as close as possible to these targets. Anything over 1,500 words will have to be pre-approved by the Editor-in-Chief.
  • Submissions used to defame, harass, or threaten board members are not tolerated.

Submission Instructions

  • Conditions for Submissions. All authors and artists must agree to have their works reproduced for this and other Wayfinder products, be it for translations into other languages (we will be responsible for the truthfulness of the translations), special publications, or use on a Wayfinder website. All of Wayfinder’s publications are NON-PROFIT, and authors and artists will be given proper credit where due.
  • Send all submissions to: wayfinder.fanzine@gmail.com with the subject line containing “Wayfinder #8 Submission”.
  • All text submissions must be submitted in DOC or DOCX format (doesn’t matter if you use Office or OpenOffice). Note: Files sent in RTF, TXT, or any other format than DOC will be rejected.
  • Do not use fancy fonts or colors or styles for formatting - these will get stripped out in the editing and layout process. Use the standard body font for the program you’re using - bold and italics are fine.
  • For tables, please make them tab delimited. Fancy formatted tables just get reduced to this format anyway.
  • Include your name and board name in your submission - example, “Liz ‘Lilith’ Courts”. Your entries will go through editing passes for clarity and concision. Depending on time constraints, you may or may not receive feedback on the editing process and your script.
  • DEADLINE: October 14, 2012, 11:59 Pacific. All entries will be handled on a first come, first serve basis. Some articles may be rejected depending on the final size of the PDF.

Advertising

  • Fan projects operating under Paizo’s Community Use Policy are welcome to advertise their websites and materials.
  • Third party publishers wishing to advertise their Pathfinder Roleplaying Game-compatible projects in Wayfinder #8 are welcome to advertise as well. Space is available for 1/4, 1/2 and full page ads.
  • Email wayfinder.fanzine@gmail.com for questions about placing an ad. Be sure to include “Wayfinder #8 Advertising” in your subject line.
  • DEADLINE: November 15, 2012

Dotted. Look for submission in the near future!

Shadow Lodge

Oh, I been waitin' fer this'n. Lemme git back t'yez on what I'll be submittin'. More beasties, no doubt.


Dotted and bookmarked, though I've got a couple of freelance projects on my plate at the moment. I'll get serious once the queue has lightened up. :)

I'm always interested in ship combat rules, particularly after the fight's over - what can the heroes do to keep the ship afloat? Wink wink. Nudge nudge.

I might have something after I've seen the next two skull & shackles books.


Ooh. I should do this again. Bookmarked to remind me :D

The race is on to see who turns over first!

Ok, a viking prestige class is on the way (got to revise it a bit, it's still a little long).

Silver Crusade

Excellent theme!


Here's hoping for some sea shanties.

The Exchange RPG Superstar 2009 Top 4

Looking forward to this. Wayfinder #7 was amazing.

How about something related to the Seas of the Darklands?

Really like this theme. As a somewhat late-comer to Paizo, the last one (which was the first one I was aware of) was a bit tough for me to pitch anything. This falls a bit more in my wheelhouse.


Nice! Will start the ideas brewing, see what comes up.

Are things under the sea valid as well as things on it and around it?

Da-dot!

More inquisitorial goodness is coming soon.


I got an awesome idea...... but I got to figure out how to frame it into this theme. Maybe I may have to wait for a future wayfinder.....

There have been a few of these queries, now. I'm not opposed to dipping into Darkland Seas at all. However, it's got to fit well in the theme.

I will say that if you send me Darklands material, and I decide that it's not really working with this issue's theme, I am sure that it WILL for a future issue. ;-)

Dot, so I don't forget

excellent, already started, but need some inspiration on the finish

Expect a weal or woe that is uniquely different from any other so far.

Sovereign Court PaizoCon Founder, Wayfinder Editor-in-Chief

Well, crud. I have a remnant from the previous call for submissions that I missed in my rush to get it out!

In the description for Side-Treks, please disregard "from the products listed below."

The Side-Trek is open to any Pathfinder adventure, but should try to fit our nautical theme for this issue.

RPG Superstar 2009, Contributor

Put me down for a fiction piece this go-around. It's about time I stretched those literary muscles again. And I have a nautical-themed character in mind that I'd enjoy spinning a tale around. Of course, I've got to get out from under my current Paizo deadline (which is early-August), but that should still give me plenty of time to pen something for Wayfinder #8.

Sovereign Court Dedicated Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

Time to try to get my accepted article rate back to 50%. Not sure which way to run this go 'round, but I'll come up with something ... or multiple somethings.


I'm sure I'll have time to put something together for you, Tim.


You already have mine. :-)

Star Voter 2014

Just sent mine! This is maybe my best work in months, so treat it well! ;)

Seas, you say? It seems like I just worked on something like that... Ok, Tim, I'm planning on submitting to this issue, come hell or high seas.

Thanks for the PathfinderWiki shout-out, Timitius! It was nice to meet you at PaizoCon.


Just let me finish my current assignment, got some ideas for a monster, and/or a Weal and Woe entry.
Folklore is a great thing (and OGL!).

Ruyan.


I may have a beasty or two, and maybe a Weal or Woe. {fingers crossed}


Nomnom monster!

Dark Archive

Sent! Bwahahahaha.

I know you already have my poetry on file, so I'm ahead of the game on this one.


I'm excited to see how this one turns out.


This may sound like a weird request, but is it possible for someone to also put together a Hero Lab file with the submissions? If someone doesn't have access to Hero Lab or doesn't know how to use create new files, I'm sure that there are some of us who might be willing to help.

Star Voter 2014

So Tim... it's July only and you should have already 8-9 submissions! (Not thinking of all the remnants of previous numbers...) Issue #9 shouldn't be an "issue" like that! XD

Hammering away on some things.

I keep whipping my chimpanzees, but the only stuff coming out of their typewriters is stuffy, fancy, and poetic.

Kidding.

I got a little busy with two other projects, but I am putting the finishing touches on my first submission today.

Scarab Sages

Caleb ... glad to hear it! I really enjoyed getting to illustrate your article submission for Wayfinder #7.

(BTW - I am sending you a private message about that Weal and Woe article's illustration.)


First submission sent. More will be procured in time.

I have some rules I want to submit that need some playtesting. My regular group is going to help me out with that, but I want to have some outside opinions.

My first question is, will this have any effect on these rules being accepted into Wayfinder?

If not, who can help me with this?

I hope it is not a problem. I have been using my Thursday night group to playtest most of my submissions. Both of my accepted articles had at least 3 sessions of playtesting. While nothing ended up changing for my realm building piece, tweaks were made to the rune magic.

I can take a gander. (As long as you are not working on a Realm Building article, cause I don't want undue influence on my project.)

Dark Archive Star Voter 2013

Two subs sent, Tim if there are any shortages of subs of any kind do let us know

I have no problem with you testing out your rules in a playtest. I will have a problem if the rules you want published are posted and distributed to the point that they are already sort of "published".

That said, we DID take the side trek adventure into Chopper's Island off the boards (and a blog) and publish it in #7...so there are exceptions. (In that case, it was a really neat piece that was getting overlooked and lost in the levels of the internet).
