And thank you so much to all our participants, to our voters, to RPG Geek and to Pelgrane Press for such a fantastic contest!




-- Voting Rules --






Rules on voting:

Voting will close on July 31, 2015 at midnight (London time), 2015.

Votes must be cast by geekmailing me (by sending me a private message here on RPG Geek).

Voters must send me their selection of best three One Sheet GUMSHOE scenarios, ranked from 1 to 3.

N°1 will be worth 3 points, n°2 will be worth 2 points and n°3 will be worth 1 point.

Any tie concerning the top 3 will be resolved by me. Sorry, but as there are other events planned by RPG Geek right after this contest, there won't be any time to run a poll.

Anybody can vote. Participants are also encouraged to vote for their own submission unless they don't want to.




As with many things in life, the shorter the better. And with the RPG Geek One Sheet GUMSHOE Contest you’ll have the chance to show off your investigative adventure design skills by submitting a scenario that will be contained on only one sheet of paper, or two pages if you prefer.

Here is an example of a one sheet GUMSHOE adventure designed by Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan

The Haunting.

Here is an example of a one sheet GUMSHOE adventure designed by Robin D. Laws

Frosh Week

Pick up your favourite GUMSHOE game, or only its rules system, design a fantastic adventure, and send your submission to shadow_hexagram [at] hotmail [dot] fr (it's fr, not com) before July 18, 2015 11:59 pm GMT (London time).

And for those who don’t know GUMSHOE (yet !), this is the system that powers up a whole range of awesome roleplaying games such as Night's Black Agents, Trail of Cthulhu, The Esoterrorists, Fear Itself, Ashen Stars, Mutant City Blues, or TimeWatch. GUMSHOE allows you to play highly investigative games with very talented characters in a broad variety of different settings.

GUMSHOE is an open license, and you can find the OGL & Creative Commons documents here on the Pelgrane Press website.

Our terms and conditions:

The submission deadline is July 18, 2015 11:59pm GMT (London time).

Send your submission directly to shadow_hexagram [at] hotmail [dot] fr (it's fr, not com). If you can't reach me this way, geekmail me and we'll work out a solution.

Only documents in .pdf format are accepted, and must not go beyond two pages long.

Your submission should be readable and use an appropriate font and font size for ease of use once printed (picture GMs using your adventure, printed for a con game).

On your front page, you need to include the following details:

- Submitter’s name and RPG Geek Username
- Title
- The mention: "RPG Geek One Sheet Contest 2015"
- Any illustration you'd like to include – this is optional and shouldn't infringe on any intellectual property.
- The following mentions :

"GUMSHOE, [XX] are a trademarks of Pelgrane Press Ltd and used with permission." (Please replace [XX] by the game you're using, such as Trail of Cthulhu, Ashen Stars, etc.)

"I agree to allow Pelgrane Press, Ltd and to allow anyone to redistribute my submission non-commercially. This submission cannot be distributed commercially." (change 'I' to 'We' and 'my' to 'our' if several participants are credited).

If your submission is not “family-friendly”, please add a [mature] tag with your title.

Voting will take place between July 19, 2015 and July 31, 2015 by geekmail. You will rank up you first three submissions. Your n°1 will be worth 3 points, your n°2 will be worth 2 points and your n°3 will be worth 1 point. The winners will be announced on August 1, 2015

No copyright infringement please. Pelgrane Press allows you to use their games and rules system for the purpose of this contest, but please refrain from using any other intellectual property, unless you are its owner.

Only one submission per participant.

Each submission is the entire property of its writer, except for the parts already owned by Pelgrane Press. Neither BoardGameGeek, LLC, Pelgrane Press nor I can claim any rights to them.

No corrected versions of previously sent submissions are allowed. I will post submitted files on a geeklist as soon as they're sent, in order for them to be read, played and discussed. Changes taking feedback into consideration would be unfair to later participants, so please make sure your file is ready before hitting the "send" button.





So far, we've received tips from:

Kattvippa, brumcg, jbbrwcky, Joe_Sixpack, karlkrlarsson, Kezle, Mixula, MonsterMike, Scrowe, sdonohue, trevlix, Vaklam, wusselpompf, xTHAWx, hawkeye1938, sxmpxr,

Thank you very much everyone!




So good luck to everyone and feel free to play as many One Sheet GUMSHOE adventures as you can, to discuss them in this thread, and also please be considerate to Pelgrane Press, and to all your fellow participants.

Have a lot of fun everyone!

Re: RPG Geek One Sheet GUMSHOE Contest 2015
Definitely going to try and write something up for this. But first, I have a lot of rules reading to do!

Also, GUMSHOE 101 might be helpful to read, especially if you (like me) have never played one of the games.

God bless,

Re: RPG Geek One Sheet GUMSHOE Contest 2015
Can we submit pregens to accompany the adventure? Maybe after the judging period if necessary?

You'll find one in the opening post, and I also posted it in the Resources post. Here you are:

Basically, during the voting phase, each voter (anybody can vote) will send me a geekmail and tell me the 3 submission they prefer, and by ranking them from 1 to 3, where 1 is the best of the three to them.

During the contest, you will only send me your One Sheet adventure. However, when the contest is over, feel free to add pre-gen characters. They will make a fantastic addition actually!

The Haunting scenario does seem to be accessible (at least to me, anyway).

Edit: It's working now.

I meant the GUMSHOE rules. I have actually read all the contest rules, so I guess that's something laugh

Re: RPG Geek One Sheet GUMSHOE Contest 2015
So this is the right format?

This information on the front page:

Quote:
- Submitter’s name and RPG Geek Username
- Title
- The mention: "RPG Geek One Sheet Contest 2015"
- Any illustration you'd like to include – this is optional and shouldn't infringe on any intellectual property.
- The following mentions :
"GUMSHOE, [XX] are a trademarks of Pelgrane Press Ltd and used with permission." (Please replace [XX] by the game you're using, such as Trail of Cthulhu, Ashen Stars, etc.)

"I agree to allow Pelgrane Press, Ltd and to allow anyone to redistribute my submission non-commercially. This submission cannot be distributed commercially." (change 'I' to 'We' and 'my' to 'our' if several participants are credited).

And then you can use the front page and second page however you wish?
