Miniature Market has also stepped up to donate a $25 Gift Certificate good for anything in their on-line store, which of course features a fine collection of D&D miniatures. In addition, 2minutetabletop is providing our entries with a chance to win a random Halloween themed map this year. Door prizes will be drawn throughout September so you could win them just in time for your Halloween adventures!
How do you pick a winner?
We have a selection of industry experts who will be judging your submissions based on our marking criteria. The judging panel brings a wide range of expertise and after two rounds of vigorous evaluation they crown the winner.
Do we get feedback on our adventures?
All participants will receive a score out of 100 and some slight comments from the panelists that mark their adventure. However, if you are looking for detailed feedback you will need to enter with a "critical feedback token". Please visit the FAQ for more information on Critical Feedback.
Is there a theme this year?
This contest's theme is HALLOWEEN so there should be plenty of previous adventures for you to pick from. How you interpret the theme is up to you!
Who is it open to?
You asked and we're delivering. Saga Forge Scribe is now open to any ttrpg designer and writers worldwide* who want to take a shot at the grand prize (*almost please see full rules for geographic & age limits).
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. Saga Forge Scribe is a NET-Loss passion project but if you would like to support the contest please visit our Patreon. 100% of Patreon donations go towards improving the contest every year.
