I know I'm not the only one still waiting for an answer, so I'll just ask: If our pitch has not been selected by Zenith Games, do we get an answer? I thought it would be the case, but several authors have told me they haven't been told anything yet.

I'm not sure that we responded to everybody, but if we haven't responded to you it's a safe bet the pitch wasn't selected. You can always e-mail us to ask.

When you talk about “polish” what exactly does that mean? Graphics? Art? Layout design?


In publishing terms, "Polish" generally refers to going through the text and proofreading, editing, and generally making sure it's ready for release. Content writers are generally not responsible for art, layout, graphics, and so forth. If a publisher accepts a content submission, they will (almost) always do that stuff themselves, if only to be consistent with their other releases.

So, basically, your submission should be as high-quality as you can write it.

(This shouldn't be confused with polishing the final product before release. Polishing can happen at any step, really, and the important thing is that if you're submitting anything to a publisher, it should be to the highest quality you can manage.)

I understand now. Thank you!

GM Rednal has the right of it. I'm not looking for people to say "Here's a rough draft of an idea I have, I can fill it out if you like." I'm looking for people to say "Here's a completed idea I have, written to the best of my ability."

I'm only expecting text here, but heck if you have graphics and art I'm happy to take that into consideration.

Designing a cosmic horror encounter sounds fun, though I doubt I'd have the chops to make an entire horror adventure. That does sound like a project that will tickle a lot of peoples' fancies, though. (Lots of deranged maniacs lurking around here, is what I mean.)

Sovereign Court

I hope it does. I really enjoy these types of adventures and our customers seem to too!

It seems like you have something fairly specific in mind as your definition of "Cosmic Horror". Is there a particular place that one could look to get a bit more of an idea of what you're looking for?

Sovereign Court

Click here for my definition of Cosmic Horror Overall I am looking for Lovecraftian/horror themed, High-level adventures.

You don't necessarily need to use any of this content, but if it's cosmic horror you want, the stuff on this page may help spark some ideas. I particularly recommend the bit on Elder Influences.


I hope this is ok to post here. I didn't know of any other location or thread to find the writers.

I'm trying to start an RPG writers group for anyone with a like-minded interest. Ideally, 3-4 more people but we are using Google suite. We can host as many as want to join. We'll subdivide into writing groups of five. There will be a $20 quarterly fee to pay Google (as a heads up).

If you are committed to a writers group you can send an email to brian@rpgscribesguild.com

We even have a cool sounding url.

Is there a place that one can read up on what this will entail and what the $20/4 months will go towards?

Or there's the Devcord on discord, which is an invite only group for developers (PM for more details).


Google Suites cost 5$ a month per person coming out of my pocket. 15$ goes to 3 months. If you quit at the end without paying the 5$ covers that.

If you send me your email address you can look around and see what I've put up so far - but what is up is just me. It's a group format so everyone should contribute to making it a great place. What we put into it is what it will become.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'll go check them out.

That is correct. We will assign the adventure to the writer whose encounter submission we find to be the most terrifying.

I know, as tempting as it was to make a really sphincter-unclenching encounter and soil computer chairs everywhere... I just think I'd have shot all my creativity into one, disparate location encounter and not actually have anything to create an adventure with, (thus failing you all and wasting your time). Naturally I am assuming mine would be the best and then I'd have to admit I had nothing left in the tank.

One day... fetus-spawning evil woman tree... (with tentacle-roots and some kind of slime, probably), that also looks like your true love. One day...
