Worldwide Adventure Writing Month Starts July 1st

Posted By Martin Ralya On June 30, 2008 @ 1:34 am In Gnome Gnews | 6 Comments

The second annual Worldwide Adventure Writing Month starts tomorrow, July 1st.

Last year’s WoAdWriMo generated seven free adventures that you can download or read online. The guidelines last year included a goal of 32 pages, but that suggestion is gone from this year’s event — you can write as little or as much as you like.

The many lazy gnomes who write Gnome Stew will be climbing out of our stew pot and creating a WoAdWriMo adventure together. Maybe “assembling a possibly unplayable mess” might be more accurate, we’ll just have to see.

We asked for an extension (see: legendary gnomish laziness), but the pitiless master nice gentleman cracking the whip while cackling madly organizing WoAdWriMo, Jeff Rients, said no. So we get 31 days (minus Independence Day and July 5th, Hangover Day), just like the rest of the world.

Want to join us and hopefully lots of other GMs in writing a free adventure for your favorite RPG? Of course you do! If nothing else, join in so you can write something better than our Frankensteinian monstrosity.

For starters, it would be nice to know which system and/or setting you (we?) are writing for. Or is this still open for debate?

WoAdWriMo itself is entirely open — you can write for whatever game you like, or even go systemless. Jeff’s intent is for GMs to write adventures for the games they love.

As for the adventure the authors of Gnome Stew are writing, I don’t want to say too much and spoil the surprise, but you could safely call our effort charmingly like multiple-personality disorder. ;)

We have to get Jeff to change the link on his site to the new address for the official WoAdWriMo forum from TT to YMIAT.

http://www.youmeetinatavern.com/index.php?board=10.0

You can go there to discuss your ideas and get feedback on the concepts you have for your adventure.

And, as appropriate, our adventure may be a little…. short?

This sounds like the perfect time to turn my zombie one-shot into something more polished.
