The contest has been running for 8 years. The 2014 contest was won by Victoria Jacko and you can read an interview with her plus tips on running The Daughters of Fury on Geek Native. The 2013 winner was Steven Helt and you can read insights from Helt himself about Tears at Bitter Manor also on Geek Native. The contest winner, you see, gets their module published professionally by Paizo.
The prize, the publication of the module, means 64-pages of high quality, full colour, softback that’s suitable for Pathfinder and any game published under the Open Gaming License. Most of all; it’s a great chance to get your thoughts and style seen by professional RPG designers, people who appoint writers and the community.
This year the RPG Superstar contest has a new Master of Ceremonies as Owen K.C. Stephens steps up to the mark. Owen is promising a tough battle this year. In a press release he said;
Ramping up the degree of difficulty in several rounds is a result of how consistently amazing the entries have been year after year. We’re convinced the talent pool exists to make several of the stages tougher than previous years, and that the best contestants are going to thrive under the pressure.
The first challenge is usually the design of a wondrous item but this year contestants are being asked to create an original magic item from one of the following categories; suit of armour, shield, weapon, staff, ring or rod.
