GUIDELINES FOR MANUSCRIPT & ART SUBMISSIONS
Spider Dreams Press, an imprint of Sacred Wolf Inc, is dedicated to bringing quality role-playing games and supplements to
gamers. We would like to encourage the development of new talent in the industry,
and welcome submissions from anyone interested. We will give every proposal the
attention that it deserves.
- Submissions must be accompanied
by a cover letter, including creators name, address, and phone number, and e-mail address.
- Only send copies of your work,
since we will not return submissions. Be sure your name and address is on your
work. (Your name and e-mail address should appear somewhere on each page of the
submitted materials for identification.)
- Submitting writing, art, and cartography
samples as an individual or a group is okay. However, we reserve the right to
accept it in part or as a whole.
- You have the option to enclose
a short creator's bio with a list of previously published material, if any.
- We will make every effort to respond
as soon as possible.
- Include SASE for reply, with extra
postage, if you wish to have your manuscript returned.
- All manuscripts must be typed and
double-spaced. Include a description of what makes your work unique or different
from other products. We are looking for new and innovative adventures, and different
ways to utilize the existing rules (a new use for existing skills, or new spells, for example).
- Please proofread the manuscript
for spelling and grammatical errors.
- We are currently looking for short
adventures for the D20 system (were looking into other Open Game License systems at this time; e-mail a query first for other
systems). The finished adventure should be 14-30 pages of text in length. (For anything else, e-mail a query to: email@example.com. We will consider other materials, though its unlikely that
we will be able to use them at this time.)
- Please send a short (half a page
or less) description of the work, including the general level range that it is designed for, and what makes it different. Also include a sample page from your adventure (to give us an idea of your style;
it doesn't need to be an actual page from the finished work, but it should include a few encounter descriptions). Do not send more than five stand-alone adventure queries at a time.
For longer works, or series of adventures, send a one-page query.
- Send samples of printed artwork,
or photocopies. These may be in any medium.
(Do not send original artwork or slides.)
- Sample maps should have some artistic
or unique quality. However, ease of use is the main consideration.

adventure needs to have a beginning (a plot hook to draw in the players, and preliminary information), a middle (the body
of the scenario), and an end (the conclusion of the story, along with rewards or benefits).
Plots for adventures-within-adventures (campaign sub-plots, or "metadventures") should contain an overview of the metadventure,
the key players and their goals, and a timeline of events. Also, what amount
of magic (if any) is available? This range can be from non-existent to ubiquitous. What type of magic (divine, arcane, psionic or any combination of them) is available? This will help GMs decide how well it will fit into their campaign.
