What classifies as a One-Shot Adventure?

For the purposes of this contest, a one-shot adventure is an adventure that can be completed in a single sitting (Approx 6hr or less). The adventure must include at least one encounter of the following: combat interaction, one social interaction OR one environmental interaction. There is a max word-count so please ensure you read our Rules.

Can I submit something I've already written?

Yes, as long as you fit all other rules criteria you are free to submit any entry you have already written. Please note that previously published adventures on blogs, print or other websites will not be accepted.


When are submission deadlines?

Submissions open August 14th @ 00:00 and close August 24th, 2020 @ 23:59 (Pacific GMT -7). This is to ensure we have enough time to screen & judge the adventures while also giving our streaming partners enough time to produce the episode for a Halloween release. Please be aware that there is a submission limit, and we will announce here if we are close to closing early. You can always submit a rough draft to hold your place and update it closer to the submission deadline. (Same for those who are seeking feedback, we recommend purchasing your token early to guarantee availability)

How much does it cost? 

It is FREE TO ENTER! If you want feedback on your work there are paid options that go towards the panelists who are giving you the feedback and help to offset set-up fees.
