Liberty's Edge

Nice! :) I know a number of folks have asked for this :)


One thing I'd have to ask of publishers is to note the date when they'll stop looking or at the very least post when they have filled the project.

This is for the sake of your sanity and anyone else who tries to query a year old project you filled within a week of posting.

Hence the "Respond By" option, and yeah, follow up would be good. :D

I want to go to there. I have only professionally freelanced one time, to build an encounter within the PF game system. This thread has become my new favorite!


What kind of monsters would you like?

Dotting, this thread seems like a chill idea.

Honestly, creative as possible. Take a look at the monsters we have done already for NeoExodus and see what you might be able to add to the setting.


Louis, do you want sample monsters in the body of the email or as attachments?

EDIT: Would be link to blog entry acceptable?

Attached would be best.

Yes it would, especial if there are comments from other people about what they thought about the monster.

Would it be possible to add sample monster statblock to the guidelines - do you use any sort of header for the name of the monster (and possibly lower tier headers for sections of the template) or is the whole monster entry plain text without headers?

Spoiler:
Also, how does one make multiplication symbol?

I will see what I can do about that. Thanks for the interest.

Publisher Name: Drop Dead Studios looking for freelance writers to develop archetypes, traits, and other advanced options for an upcoming Spheres of Power expansion PDF.
Project Length: 1,000-10,000 depending on writing quality.
Pay Rate: 2.5 cents per edited word
Additional details: This project requires the writer to have a working knowledge of the Spheres of Power magic system.

I have a tendency to be demanding as a developer, and I reserve the right to send things back multiple times with edits until everyone involved is happy with the quality of the product. Therefore, those who apply will be sent a small assignment first, followed by longer assignments when the first is finished depending on quality and how we all felt about the process. Those who work out particularly well will find more work at higher rates coming their way in the future.

Just to let all yo know, we at LPJ Design have four several new writers who we like and have assigned projects to already. So if you are interested and not sure you think you can be good at this, I will just say, don't miss out on your dreams because you are afraid to go after them. Those guys did and now they are going to have writing credits with the 3PP that MANY well know Pathfinder, WOTC and OGL writers worked with including Owen KC Stephens, Neil Spicer, Tim Hitchcock and MANY more. It is your job to loose.

Fat Goblin Games is looking for: freelance writers willing to write an entire Call to Arms book.
Project Length: One whole Call to Arms PDF-book. Flexible, with ~7,500+ words as "suggested"
Pay Rate: Sales Based, effectively ~40% profits of book sales
Additional details: Blog-post on FatGoblinGames.com gives extensive details.
Respond by: Potentially "on-going", based on your own timeline/expectations. As of this posting, I have taken on ~6 freelancers, and expect I could handle around a dozen+ total due to the nature of these books. Watch fatgoblingames.com for on-going updates as time goes by after this post.

Please email questions to address on blog-post or contact me via Paizo's mail-system, in lieu of posting to this thread (so we don't clog it up unnecessarily).

Is there a time frame in which I should expect a response? I imagine you have high volumes of e-mails to filter through, but if my proposal is denied will I at least be informed?

I'd give him a few days, especially over the weekend. If he doesn't reply in a couple of days, ping him.

Felipe is, but as said, it took a full 7 days before I got a response, whereas for illustration work the art director responded the next day. I imagine there has been far more submissions for writing than illustrating, at least at the start of the Open Call.

Hmm I emailed the art director and never received a response...que sera sera.


When writing adventures for freelance gigs in general, is there a specific outline that I should follow in terms of organizing the adventure? The style guides I've read deal with general writing guidelines and formatting of game terms, but not necessarily on how to layout an adventure.

I submitted my portfolio on the first day of this announcement. Perhaps he's gotten busy with more submissions since then. He noted I was the first cartographer that applied, though it was my portfolio that got me in.

If the publisher doesn't provide you with a specific format, then I suggest going with what works. Find a Pathfinder adventure you own that really worked well for you, and use it as a template for how you organize your information and layout.

To add to my fellow ancient terror's suggestion I'd personally suggest finding an old copy of Dungeon magazine and using that as a guide as well. This is especially true if you're planning on contributing to a smaller publication.

Not to butt in here...:

...but one thing I know that publishers appreciate is when writers follow their house styles. If you are pitching to a specific company, look at some of the similar products and match that format. Not everyone uses a formulaic approach to their material, but almost everyone out there has particular ways they do things. If you're working on something that is like something else they've done, match that format and style.

Of course, there are always exceptions and I'm totally willing to be wrong. :)
