What challenges do you face?
There will be five RPG Superstar rounds, lasting several weeks in total and the details of each round are only announced as the round begins. This year submissions to round one (expected to be in their hundreds) will be shown to the fans first.
The winning fan gets to write an official Pathfinder Module that Paizo will publish. There will be three runner-up places that will unlock Pathfinder Society Scenarios writing tasks. That means Paizo are expecting to take on four professional writing contracts.
