Ok, before we get into the really big topic of RPG Superstar, I must first point you all at Sean’s On-Line Games Design course. The course is intimately tied in with the Pathfinder rules set, so is perfect as something to do prior to the annual RPG Superstar competition.
You will be expected to contribute one item design and one monster design during the course which he will treat as actual submissions for a product, giving you direct feedback as a developer, explaining in detail the points he makes.
This includes at least 2 skype face to face calls to run through the designs with him. Expect to set aside 4-6 weeks lapse to complete the item and monster design to a high level of polish!
This course is a steal at $50 for one-on-one tutelage by one of the masters of games design, so if you are serious, you simply must get in on a class.
Numbers are strictly limited, what with Sean being heavily busy with his Five Moons Kickstarter work, but keep checking his etsy store. He usually posts a limited run of classes there that sell out very quickly. If there aren’t any showing when you check, you could pop him a question asking when the next batch of classes are available.
Next blog post will be all about RPG Superstar, it’s history and the amazing talent it has uncovered.
