Do you play or referee any Games Designer Workshop RPGs or their descendants?
Ever write good sci-fi short stories?
Or create great visual sci-fi art?
The legendary CHALLENGE MAGAZINE is returning for a special one-off issue (which will make it C78 ), to celebrate the release of the CD-rom back catalog of Challenge magazines and to pay back all those loyal fans who collected, and still collect, THE magazine of science fiction gaming.
If successful, it will go back into regular publication.
We're looking for submissions for the following games:
We want to cover all the licensed eras and versions; other games, systems & settings may be covered in possible future issues. This WILL also include sci-fi roleplaying using the BRP & Call of Cthulhu systems.
Scenarios should be around the 4,000 - 8,000 word limit and include game stats. Articles should be around 700-1400 word limit. Art should conform to 1/4, 1/2, and full page (US Letter size - 8.5"x11"@300DPI), in TIF, AI, PSD, or PNG format.
ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST be approved in principle before work commences. Any links to current work on the web is a bonus. If you haven't seen Challenge but you like the games and want to submit you can find back issues at Drive-Thru RPG.
This issue will retail for a small amount to say thanks to the legion of fans who have supported Challenge magazine in the past. As such there is likely to be little reward other than a sense of pride, making a few contacts, and a justifiable sense of achievement in having YOUR work in this the special commemorative issue of Challenge Magazine.
Not to mention the enormous gratitude of everyone here involved in the project.
We're asking you to step up and submit something voluntarily. At this stage there is NO remuneration.
This situation MAY change if the magazine is a success but we at Planetary Assault Group don't make false promises so we're asking you to dig deep and do it for the love of the games like we are.
With the blessing of Marc Miller and with some august names on board we're confident it will be a success....
contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org with your submission idea, comments, or if you wish to advertise.
Please refer to your submission in the subject line of the e-mail by stating succinctly the game setting (such as Traveller or 2300AD), the style of submission (such as scenario, fiction, or article), and your name.
For example, a 2300AD scenario submission would look like this: 2300AD/scenario/Mr.John Doe.
Thanks for reading and we hope to hear from you!
