Question:

Will we receive an email notifying us that our submission was received?

Nope.

Sovereign Court Wayfinder, PaizoCon Founder

UPDATE: Where submissions stand right now, with 10 days remaining.

29 submissions

Bestiary - 13
Class - 3 (all archetypes)
Crunch - 1
Fiction - 2
Flavor - 2
Game - 1 (ACG)
Magic Items - 1
Poetry/Song - 1
Side Trek Adventure - 1 (prearranged)
Side Trek Seed - 1
Weal or Woe - 3

Looks like everyone is focused on monsters. All other categories are very, very lean.


Almost half of the submission interesting.

Granted I'm also partially guilty as one of my 2 submissions was a Bestiary entry.


Desperately trying to finish my fiction submission over the next six days...

(And by "finish" I mean, "cut roughly 500 more words..." Ufff...)

Okay, I have a submission ready, a small fiction piece...

I was practising pacing with the germ of my idea, resulting in a fiction piece of 994 words - which is neither 750 nor 1500.

Do you still want to see it?

It isn't the right length per the submission guidelines and trying to get it to fit would, I think, ruin the pacing effect I have achieved.

So I thought best to ask before submitting and getting auto rejected. Please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

I am not a Wayfinder peep, but the 750/1500 wordcounts are pretty firm. That's pretty close to how many words it takes to fill 1/2 pages, leaving room for credits and any art (although that can take some shoehorning). Hit those wordcount targets as if your submission's life depends on it.

If you can, sit on your finished writing for a day or so, and then go back over it with fresher eyes. You'll often find that that you can get the wordcount down. And be critical... even if you really like certain passages and phrases, if they don't serve the article, then they should likely be excised.

If you can't get the wordcount down, does your article suggest/inspire a feat or magic item (or two) that you can also include (and thus bringing your wordcount closer to the 1500 target)?

To be blunt....NO.

Ambrosia is correct. Those 750 or 1500 word counts are HARD targets. If I get a 994 word article, that's pretty much an autoreject, because that's essentially filling 1 and 1/4 pages, and that is not doable for our layout.

Bestiary articles are the only ones that I will not autoreject for not hitting the hard target word count. Bestiary items must be 750 words or less, because they go into the Bestiary section which is about 10 pages usually.

We've also started accepting magic items like monsters, so that the hodge-podge of items can be added to a Heroes' Hoard article. That is the only other time hard targets don't come into play. Submitting single or handfuls of magic items without them being in a single themed article is risky though. If we don't get enough magic items to make a 2-page article, then those items won't be used in the issue.

Sovereign Court Wayfinder, PaizoCon Founder

Couple Annotation Questions:

To Timitus,
Using one archetype not yet on the SRD/Archives of Nethys? Should I note it, perhaps in the email for editor support? And yeah, it's important to the article in question without an easy alternate way of doing it.

To anyone,

What are the "offical" notations for--

First World, Realm of the Fey
Player Companion: Antihero's Handbook
Player Companion: Heroes of the Wild

Take Care,

Kerney

No worries Tim, I expected that but thought no harm in asking. I’m pro enough now to put something aside in a for future folder rather than try and cut by 25% ... I am fairly sure that I would butcher it by a cut that size, so I will pass and keep it my piece intact. I’m sure it will come in handy somewhere down the line, so don’t worry,

Well, I did my best to create some crunch and magic items that are worth using. Maybe I will even get to see my name in the next issue.

Two songs on their way!

This time, I've been inspired by a song about temporal relativity at high speed, and one about a Victorian artist incarcerated in the lunatic asylum.

Have fun guessing.

And items submitted. Eager to see what is in this issue!

Just sent my submissions in (1 archetype and 1 side quest seed). This'll be my first attempt at publication in nearly 15 years, so let's hope they pass muster!

Shadow Lodge

Sent in two, five hours to go. What the heck, I can turn that rejected Weal or Woe idea into a sidetrek seed in five hours.

Good luck to everyone.

1 Fiction, 1 Side Trek, 1 Weal or Woe

Now if you excuse me I need to go hyperventilate into a paper bag


Second article sent. Time to bed.

Good luck to everyone who submitted for the first time.
You've passed the first hurdle, of believing in yourself and your work.

These forums have lots of talented people, creating material every week for their home games, but write off their efforts as nothing special.

Especially the ones who say 'I don't have time to write. I only run pre-written material', but even they will have to tweak, rewrite, or add to that material to fit their players' preferences, their PCs' backgrounds, or fill in the gaps when they wander off the written page.


1 Archetype, 1 Monster, and 8 feats.

I... honestly admit I could have done better with the archetype.

It's annoying when you get inspiration for something with less than a week left and everything else going on keeps you from ironing those ideas out >_<

Good luck everyone! Glad I got one submission in, but I did not turn in my second...just did not have time to fact check details and all on it.

If any of you have any unfinished ideas, I recommend you get them written down asap, and work on them while the inspiration is still with you.

Test it on an NPC in your home game, run it past your friends, see if it's a feat or spell they'd pick for their own PCs. Ask someone you trust to spell check it, grammar check it or critique it. Ask your group's canon-savant to look for holes in your timeline or geography.

It might sound like punishing yourself, but practice is practice.
It could be of use to you, in a future issue or elsewhere.
And it's nothing to the punishment you'll give yourself, if the next issue's theme is announced, you know you once had an idea that would fit, but you're staring at a blank screen, unable to recall a word of it.

So, in the spirit of the above, I'll carry on mangling Jefferson Airplane's 'White Rabbit', as I just know I can fit 'xylem' and 'photosynthesis' in there, somewhere.

This is stellar advice. Always keep practicing.
