Sounds great. I have a few questions though. How are submissions handled? And what do you mean by legal disclaimer?
First, I'm handling submissions: Email me directly at email@example.com . SUBJECT HEADER: WFRP scenario contest sumission (or something like that so it doesn't go to spam). If you're having trouble with formatting or ideas, feel free to email me and I'll be happy to provide suggestions.
Second: Somewhere in your submission (preferably at the bottom of your cover page in small point font should be the following disclaimer:

(I added these to the original post in this thread for ease of use as well).
Just wanted to say that I'm really happy you've pushed this idea forward. I think if WFRP v3 is going to survive/thrive it needs to get out into the community/cons and get played! I've been playing on the OWL on Obsidian Portal and its interesting to see such a global involvement albeit rather scant involvement from US folks. While the Pathfinder Society is almost all US crew. If the game community is going to grow its going to take contributions from the many not just FFG. Keep it up! I'm working on my 4 hour scenario Once More Into the Darkness Dear Friends. Its going to be set in a small village outside of Nuln with the PC's getting caught up in a smuggler/gang war…with an at times groan worthy nod to the good ol' Oldenhaller Contract. My goal is to have a scenario focusing on overwhelming odds that require the PC's to utilize all of their non-combat actions, talents, skills. Bringing some of the ideas from Liber Fanatica and its articles on Crime and the Old World.
A question I have is what kind of print quality should we be aiming for ? The look and feel of LF and Defenders of the Forest for example blow my mind with their quality…so between back of napkin/dot matrix style and LF, what's desirable ?
Thanks again for starting this contest.

I'm going to use caslon antique for my headers and calibri for my body text. I'd go for readability and good writing over beauty, but innovation is king in this contest. We don't really have anything to go on so far from FFG as they are NOT known for their convention scenarios. For that prize, I'd look to what Paizo does for their Pathfinder Society games (not the dungeon-crawl-plots, but the layout and readability). I think parchment background makes for a hard to read scenario, but they look prettier so you'll have to test it out.
If you want a general guide on writing and grammar, PEG has one:www.peginc.com/about/writing-for-pinnacle/
I'm a graphic artist by trade, and I'd be willing to help layout someones adventure ( instead of writing one myself) if that would still earn me the same treasure spoils as writing an adventure. :-D

Yes. We've got lots of copies of Day Late, shilling short and the uncut career sheets. We've only got a few copies of Journey to blackfire pass, but I'll see if I can reserve a copy for the much thanks if you're with the winning adventure.
If any of you would like early feedback on your ideas, send me the initial outline (short summary please), and I can give feedback.
Also, if you get stuck, let me know.

Note: November 1st deadline approaching.
Remember, although we are aiming for convention-playable scenarios, any 10+ page WFRP3 scenario is acceptable.
Get those preliminary submission ideas in. Primary deadline is October 15th. We can extend it a bit if necessary. Final deadline is November 1st.
When can we (i.e. neither participants, judges or LF-crew) expect to get hold of the scenarios? Allthough I'm not actively participating I'm very interested in the resulting scenarios. All submitted scenarios will be available?
Also, for the record, in a future contest I'd love to submit a scenario given that I have the time (which I sadly did not have this time). I guess it's kind of soon, but do you have any thoughts on when or if you'll host another contest?
Thanks Jay for all the work you and all contestants are putting into the contest, I look forward to seeing the results. :)
The plan is to post any of them to the Liber Fanatica "Scenarios" page.
I'm not certain how many scenarios we will actually get. I think if we get 2-3 submissions, that would be realistic and that would take us about 2 days to review and judge. That leaves me with 79 copies of the printed DLSS to keep me warm this winter ;) I believe we were optimistic about people's interest in participating in a scenario contest, but still, something is better than nothing. The Sons of Sigmar contest seems to have gotten about 10 entries, but I don't know how the non-German fans will step up.
FFG has no plans to do any kind of official support anymore or any kind of official scenario contest (according to recent correspondance with their customer service..but my friend is still working on them). My guess is once they fill the role of the associate gopher position (see other thread), some aspects of WFRP support may re-arise in a GOOD WAY :)
