Tiny Gork hosts Warlock’s Journal Contest

The Warlock's JournalThe Warlock’s Journal Contest for January-February 2017 is being hosted by our friends at Tiny Gork, with an entry deadline of February 15th. They have a new approach for this contest – but here is the word straight from the Tiny Gork himself:

 

As a GM it can be tricky sometimes to come up with stuff, be it a location, magic item, npc, weapons, monsters, background story etc. The contest this time emulates one of the methods to overcome these tricky dry spells.

lexicon
dragonscale
freebooter

Seek inspiration in the three words above, let them take you places, let them create new places, people and items of power in your imagination. This time anything goes, you can submit any and everything for the Warlocks Journal. Well that is to say any and everything inspired by, derived by or crafted from the three words above. You do not have to use the words as words in a sentence; you can, but you can also use them as concepts and themes. Inspiration from random words is the idea this time. Let the random words spark your imagination.

Like a … dragonbone pirateship clad in dragonscales for superior protection, forever sailing in the mist guarding the ancient lexicon of the dead.

That there was a very short one, Tiny Gork grants you a full 500 words to do with as you please. Now it is true that sometimes one thing inspires another without any relation to each other, so make good use of the words available to make sure your reader understands a link between them.

The contest is open as of… right now!
You can submit your entry until the 15th of February, and you may submit up to 3 entries.Each entry must take all three words into account: lexicon, dragonscale, freebooter; each entry must not exceed 500 words (title not included).

The winning entry will be personally selected by Tiny Gork himself. The winner will receive a PDF bundle of products relating to the three topics of the contest; more info on this will follow but it will be a collection worth somewhere between $20-35 depending on what ends up getting into the bundle. All entries will be compiled into a free PDF by TinyGork, and the winner shall be declared upon the 28th of February 2017. So let’s see what you can come up with! Send your submission to gork@tinygork.com  with the subject: Warlocks Journal January.

The minions hope this sparks your imagination, as it already has ours. (The minions are not eligible to enter, but don’t let that stop you!) Good luck with your contest entry, and good gaming!

We Have a Winner!

Bridge over the Red River in Louisiana. Taken by Billy Hathorn, CC-BY-SA-3.0

Bridge over the Red River in Louisiana. Taken by Billy Hathorn, CC-BY-SA-3.0

We are pleased to announce that Michael McNeill has won the “Right Here in River City” Warlock’s Journal Contest. His entry, “Carthage, Louisiana – Gateway to Kisatchie,” was selected as the favorite river city. Carthage is a creepy town that would be great to drop in to a modern horror game anytime someone needs to travel through the South.

For his prize, Michael has chosen $10 in store credit at the Open Gaming Store. John Reyst (owner of the store and also of www.d20pfsrd.com) generously offered to match the prize, so Michael will receive a total of $20 credit.

The final version of the compiled entries is expected to be available in the next week or so. It will name the author of each piece as well as adding some related illustrations. Keep an eye out for it here, as well as at the Open Gaming Store or RPGNow, or become an Honorary Minion (sign up for the Tabletop Adventures mailing list) to receive notification directly to your e-mail.

Congratulations again to Michael, and watch for information on the November Warlock’s Journal contest, coming soon from Tales of a GM.

Right Here in River City!

Tabletop Adventures is pleased to host the bimonthly Warlock’s Journal Contest for September 2016, with the theme, “Right Here in River City.” The deadline to enter is Friday, September 23rd and the prize is $10 to use at the game store of your choice.

warlocksjournal2The Warlock’s Journal is an interdimensional book that moves through the planes always seeking new information. This month it is gathering descriptions of cities located on rivers throughout the multiverse.

River cities can have very different characters; contrast the flamboyant reputation of New Orleans, Louisiana with the quieter atmosphere of someplace like Peoria, Illinois, or the deep history of London, England. River cities can be great places for adventurers, as a river can bring in strangers or new things, or take the adventurers themselves to far-off places.

Entry Details:

The object of this month’s contest is to describe a river city. This can include its buildings, culture, people, geography, terrain, or anything else that might be useful to a GM who wants to add it to a game. The entry can be from any time period or genre, so it could describe a fantasy town whose river forms a moat and is a line of defense, a real-world city such as modern or historical New Orleans, or a futuristic city in which the river that was once so important to it is almost lost among towering buildings and sky bridges.

Each entry needs an appropriate title, such as “Stonebridge” or “Etherea, City of Angels.” The body of the entry should be at least 100 but not more than 800 words. A person can enter as many as six times, but each entry must be sent separately. Put the entry in the body of an e-mail and also be sure to include contact information; at a minimum, name and e-mail address. Send all entries to customerservice@tabletopadventures.com. The entry deadline is Friday, September 23rd, 2016.

All entries will be compiled into a PDF (with the entries presented anonymously) for voting by fans, using Survey Monkey or a similar service. (Any ties will be decided by the Overlord, of course.) Voting will run through October 4th.

The winner of the fan vote will be announced about October 6, 2016. The winner will receive a prize of $10 US, to be paid via PayPal or in store credit on RPGNow/DriveThruRPG.

When the contest is complete, all entries will be made available as a free PDF with credit to the authors. (Entries remain the property of their authors, but participation grants permission to use entries in the free contest PDF and any annual or other compilation that may be made later.) Tabletop Adventures reserves the right to add more winning places or award Honorable Mention prizes at the Overlord’s discretion. If there are any questions, contact customerservice@tabletopadventures.com.
