We had an awesome level of interest in this years Solstice Challenge. I’d like to thank all who participated and wrote an adventure and those who voted. It seems like this challenge was something we all needed! Without further ramblings I’d like you all to give big “hurray!” for:
Here we are! We got for awesome entries for this challenge. I’d like to thank all participants and ask you to vote for your own personal favorite. Hope you had fun with this as these will surely be enjoyed by great gaming groups.
Excellent news from Grim & Perilous Studios, LCC! The long waited might reach Kickstarted next February. I don’t know about you but I have been watching this game closely and to me it looks like something that will seriously rock.
A few years back I started a challenge for WFRP players to create a onesheet adventure for Solstice. We did it a couple of times and after some time off I decided that the stars are right for another friendly competition.
In the old days WFRP was supposedly created as a “fantasy version of Call of Cthulhu”. I think this idea is still very good one and one we should follow in this challenge. Bring in the mysteries, cults and weird uncles. Raise up the dead ones and whisper threaded names in ancient libraries.
A present a challenge for all players and GMs alike. Create a onesheet akin the ones in official supplements and at the my download section.
The “rules” are as follows
It has to do with either Winter Solstice, apocalyptic visions, aligned stars and/or end of the world.
Tone down the fighting, increase the horror rating.
Keep it system free, if possible (for editions to enjoy your work).
Post your entry before 18th of December.
At 19th of December I’ll open a poll for two days of voting. If I don’t remember to do this send me emails. Or call me. Or poke me at Facebook (Lauri Maijala) or something. I tend to forget thinds. The winner will be declared at 21th of Decembet (Finland time).
No prices but fun adventures!
You might want to check out this guide (The Lazy Man’s Guide to Constructing a Call of Cthulhu Adventure).
Send your onesheet to me at doc_cthulhu (at) hotmail.com and I’ll host them here.
Don’t get too shy about this. If you have a good idea, post it. If you come up with something completely different, post it. Want to do it anynomously? Just do it! Main reason for this is to get a number of entries. I have already had to entries and didn’t even check if they meet the criteria.
As a final note: If you want to you can use my #mapvember challenge maps from my Guild’s IG feed. I can send you a larger, scanned file, should you need them.
In this age of shitmar (pardon my French) I’m glad to see that someone is still making an effort. Steve O’leary just send a new adventure:
Heralds of Woe
The College of Heralds in Altdorf requires some temporary help to sort out some disputed property cases. The players, possibly late first/early second careers, are offered a short term contract as temporary Heralds, to investigate who actually owns some valuable estates in Talabecland.
However, all is not quite as easy as it appears-the bickering candidates are powerful, corrupt and ambitious individuals, and range from organised criminals to powerful wizards, and fanatic members of the Church. Bribery, corruption, street violence and a vicious animated compost heap will all be encountered on the streets of Altdorf.
