Are you looking for one author for each book (assuming each class gets own book) or are you considering multiple authors contributing for each class multiple smaller pieces (such as an archetype, a few feats, a few spells, etc. per author)?

I could do either. If two people wow me with the same class, I'll have them collaborate on a book. I just edited the original post to clarify.

Sounds interesting, I'll definitely take a look. Send me a pitch!


I could have some idea on that line too. Maybe I and Ambrosia could share! I'll send something!


I'll be sending a pitch soon... I have just passed 1300 words for occultist. I certainly have some 800 words for spiritualist (an archetype and a phantom's emotional focus) I wrote earlier.

Grey Matter Games is looking for author to write psionic powers
Project Length: 30 psionic powers
Pay Rate: $.01 per word, paid to writer's verifiable paypal account upon acceptance of finished work.

Additional details: Seeking author to write psionic powers with some themes. The psionic system is that detailed in Ultimate Psionics, by Dreamscarred Press.

The minimum themes for the powers are as follows:
connection (i.e. a lightning link between two targets, sense what another senses, or manifest this power as a part of a touch attack on an ally)
crystal (i.e. crystal column raises from the ground under your feet for 30 feet of movement, you encase yourself in crystal, or you crystalize a target immobilizing them)
unrelenting (i.e. you can ignore the next combat maneuver that affects you, ignore difficult terrain when moving in a straight line, or for each consecutive round you take damage while under the effect of this power you gain a cumulative +1 to your CMB on your next bull rush attempt if made before the end of this poewr)

While the above list is not comprehensive, it is a minimum for several powers. Please develop a broad distribution through the psionic classes with over half falling into the psion category. Please submit five semi detailed descriptions of powers you feel fit our need as a submission for consideration.

Respond to: greymattergamesllc@gmail.com with your name, and five power descriptions. Subject line should be "KV Powers"

Class write-ups in 1-2k? 1000-2000 seems far too much for class description alone but not enough to contain a full class unless it's very bare-bones and options-limited. E.g. aegis is 6.4k words, 1.3k the class itself and 5.1k the real meat of the class - astral suit rules. Wilder is almost 5k, vitalist is 5.4k. And this doesn't even include psionic power lists.

Zenith Games is looking for Authors for the Spells for the Common Man
Project Length: Any number of Spells
Pay Rate: $.01 Per word

Additional details: Why are there so many spells for shooting fire at your enemies, but virtually no spells for tending to your crops?
I'm looking for authors to write Spells for the Common Man. These are spells designed to assist the common man in his day-to-day tasks and occupations. The book will also contain a new NPC class, the Arcane Worker. Here is a list of medieval jobs for inspirations.

Please send me a single spell for the common man as a pitch, as well as your credits and a writing sample/published product (spell related if possible) Your pitch should be somewhere a 0-3rd level spell (lower is better) and it should be interesting instead of simply replacing an occupation. A spell that grows crops is far less interesting than a spell that turns intruding flies to manure. Any combat application (not needed) should be purely secondary and situational.

If you have pitched us before, please feel free to pitch us again! If you have never pitched anything before, now is your chance! We are looking for plenty of authors for this one.

Respond to: zenithgames.blog@gmail.com with your name, credits, and pitch. Subject line should be "Spells for the Common Man Pitch"

If you have pitched us before (or are currently pitching us for Spells for the Common Man), please feel free to pitch us again! If you have never pitched anything before, now is your chance! We are looking for plenty of authors for this one.

Yes, we do have two open pitches going right now, but that's just how we roll. If you want to pitch both (and you should), then please send separate e-mails for both pitches.

Thanks for your interest Jason, and I look forward to your pitch.

The adventure should be playable in both forms, but I'll probably assume your pitch works with the format used in the examples ("If you take the high road to Scotland, go to section XXX. If you take the low road, go to section YYY").
