Default The Fantasy Trip Playmat Scenario Contest

We've produced several different playmats for both The Fantasy Trip and Ogre, and many of you have been collecting the designs and, we hope, using them in your game sessions. However, the most common question we get about them is: How do I use these at my table?

We use the playmats to run custom scenarios, but enough about us.

How do you use the playmats in your games?

Have you created a custom scenario or adventure for use with a specific playmat design? Now's your chance to show it off!

For The Fantasy Trip Playmat Contest, each entry must include:
  • A proper title for the encounter, which playmat you are using, your full name, and your email address.
  • Adventure setup information.
  • The title of the existing playmat design (found here) .
  • Descriptions and minimal game statistics for each area.
  • "Who it's for" recommendations. "Three starting fighters and a wizard," for instance.
  • "Making it harder" recommendations.
  • "Continuing the adventure" suggestions.
  • Please keep submissions to 450-550 words.
  • Email to: contests@sjgames.com
  • All submissions must be received by Steve Jackson games no later than January 1, 2021.

The Fantasy Trip Prizes
  • First Place Our favorite entry will win an "I Want It All!' TFT carton loaded with the Legacy Edition game (signed by Steve Jackson!), playmats, and more.
  • Second Place The second-place winner will receive a signed copy of the Legacy Edition box set.
  • Third Place Our third-place choice will receive signed copies of the Melee and Wizard games.

RIGHTS

All entries become the property of Steve Jackson Games. We reserve the right to publish your submission in the future (maybe in an issue of Hexagram, maybe some other way), use it as inspiration for a design of our own, or repurpose the material in ways we may not yet know.

Amazing! I'm using mine heavily and will surely submit a few. The notion of a one-off 'scenario' doesn't necessarily jive with my most frequent uses (to resolve a situation that arises in a campaign-play encounter). But it should be possible to translate these to what you want.

I love this! Maybe these will be compiled into one resource, too, someday, a la Post Card Adventures.

Can I enter a silly scenario and a serious one?

I'm anti-silly in my RPGs . . . so I guess you're lucky I won't be a judge? :)

I just tried to send my first entry and the email was bounced back as undeliverable

Is that confirmation that multiple submissions are permitted

Clever idea, hope you get a slew of quality entries! If so, a compendium could be a nice thing indeed.
