I wanted to share that the 2012 One Page Dungeon Contest has been announced, and I have agreed to participate as a judge again this year. As of right now, there are six entries, and I am pretty excited by some of the designs I am seeing. For those interested in sending in an entry, here is a quick rundown of the rules:
- Create a One Page Dungeon.
- Submitting a dungeon to the contest releases it under the Creative Common Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license with credit to the contest participant.
- The submission must have a name, an author, and a link to the license (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/).
- The judges and readers play a variety of systems. Don’t waste valuable space with a lot of system-specific stats.
- A link to extra material on your blog such as wandering monsters, random events, adventure background, introduction, descriptions of tricks or traps are welcome for readers but will not be considered part of your submission.
- One entry per participant. Participants may revise/replace their entries up until the end of contest, with the last revision counting as their official entry.
- If your font size is too small to read, you will most probably not win.
- Many people will print your submission as a black and white document. Adding colors is no problem as long as the black and white printed copy is still good enough.
- Help us keep file size in check. A single page should not take more than an image with 3000x2000 pixels (1-2MB is cool, 5MB still works, 10MB is too much).
- Submission must be mailed in PDF format to Alex Schröder → email@example.com. Usually we can help you convert your Open Office and Microsoft Word documents to PDF.
- If you have a blog article talking about your submission, send us the link. We’d love to link to it from this page.
The submissions deadline is April 30, 0:00 UTC. Good luck!
