Adventure Writing Competition

6d6 Fireball, a proto-games company I run with my friend Rob (WINOLJ), are having an adventure writing competition aimed at getting unpublished writers published.

The full details of the 6d6 Fireball Adventure Writing Competition can be found on the web site:

The headlines are -

Write D&D 3.5 or System Neutral adventure and send it in.

We publish the best ones in a module and sell it

100% of the profits goes back to the published writers as payment

The competition is aimed at writers who have never been published before so this offers a real chance to be published and start your career as an RPG writer. Who knows, you might be the next Monte Cook (not that there is anything wrong with the old one).

To help new writers, we are offering a feedback service. Send us your outlines or draft versions and we will provide feedback and ideas on how to improve the adventure.

The deadline is short (less than six weeks away).

There is a parallel competition for semi-pro / previously published writers.
