Release_black

Last week, I re-jigged my release schedule to a) make a bit more sense (at least to me) and b) take me through to the end of the year while realising my goal of releasing a supplement every month. Having done so, I’ve realised that I don’t have designers for all the crazy fun-filled products I want to produce!

As I’ve already slated myself to write a fair few products over the summer I thought I’d put out a general call for submissions.

The supplements for which I need designers are:

  • So What’s The Mount Like, Anyway? (release date November 5; roughly 4,500 words)
  • Dungeon Dressing: Doors (release date November 19; roughly 4,500 words)
  • Dungeon Dressing: Chests (release date December 3; roughly 4,500 words)
  • Villages: Name TBC (release date December 17; roughly 4,500 words)

I should be clear on a couple of things:

1. This is a paying gig and you’ll get a “Design” credit.

2. I am not looking for submissions on any other subjects at the moment.

3. You can be a first-time designer or an old hand; I don’t mind.

4 You need to know the Pathfinder rule system and also be confident at producing flavoursome text.

5. Able to hit a turnover date of roughly two months before the product’s release date.

6. Be interested in working for Raging Swan again. I like to develop long-term working relationships with designers – I’m not interested in working with someone only once. If you look through my release schedule you see the same names pop up again and again.

7. Be able to take direction; Raging Swan produces high quality products in a certain style you’ll need to match that quality and style.

8. Be familiar with the kind of product you want to design. So, for example, if you want to work on Dungeon Dressing: Doors it might be a good idea to know a bit about the Dungeon Dressing line.

So if this sounds like you, drop me a line at creighton [at] ragingswan [dot] com with the name of the product you’d like to work on and a brief (up to 1,000 words) writing sample. If you’ve written for other publishers, I’d appreciate a couple of links to other stuff you’ve written so I can get a feel for your style.

Good luck and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
