Paizo Publishing’s RPG Superstar 2014 has Begun

Paizo Publishing has officially launched this year’s RPG Superstar contest!

It’s time for RPG Superstar 2014! Every year, Paizo holds an annual open-call RPG design competition to give the best and brightest aspiring game designers a chance to show the world their talent. This year’s winner will receive a contract to write a Pathfinder Module to be published by Paizo.

Even if you don’t win the grand prize, RPG Superstar offers a number of different routes to getting your name on a Paizo product. Runners-up will have their work critiqued by industry leaders, and the three final-round runners-up will earn a contract to write a Pathfinder Society Scenario, a downloadable adventure sanctioned for play in Paizo’s worldwide Pathfinder Society mega-campaign. Staff and audience favorite entries from RPG Superstar’s earlier rounds may show up in Paizo publications as well.

This year’s competition begins today with an open call to design an original wondrous item. Last year we introduced public voting by fans for these initial entries, and the response was so great—over 500,000 votes cast—we’re doing it again this year. Tell us about your magical treasure in 300 words or less by January 1, 2014, and you might just have started your RPG design career! The top 32 will be picked by our guest judges and staff, and those 32 competitors will face other game design challenges in the remaining rounds of the competition.
