Gallant Knight Games; Submissions Open

Gallant Knight Games (GKG) recently put out an open call for RPG content. Specifically, they are looking for your best 100 word pitch for a superhero themed, micro-setting. Accepted pitches will be included as stretch goals, as part of the Tiny Supers Kickstarter, which is set to debut this May.

If your pitch is accepted and the stretch goal (for your piece) is met, you'll be expected to expand the 100 word pitch, into a superhero themed, micro-setting of 1500 words. Rate of pay is $0.10/word. I've copy/pasted the call below. But if you're interest click here, and head over to the submission page on GKG's website.

Tiny Supers is coming! And we want you!
We’re opening up the floodgates, and allowing anyone who wants to submit a pitch for a micro-setting to do so. Anyone is welcome to apply, and this is a paying gig, at the Gallant Knight Games standard professional rate.
Some details about micro-settings: 

  • Micro-settings are 1500 words in length.

  • Your pitch shouldn’t be more than 100 words long.

  • There is no rules writing involved (just “fluff”.)

  • You won’t have to start writing until your stretch goal is hit on the Kickstarter.

  • You will be paid the GKG standard rate of $0.10 USD per word (ten cents USD per word.)

  • We’re aiming to have Tiny Supers on Kickstarer in May, and you would be expected to deliver the final product to us for editing by the end of June.
We will be leaving the Open Call open through April 1st, so if you want to submit you have some time!
