The 2009 Halloween Adventure Contest

You must be thinking I'm crazy of something, but I just discovered a great contest over at Chaosium. I'll let you know about the details to enter the contest as well as the prize:

Halloween Approaches!

Well sure, it's still many months away. But it is time to start our annual Halloween Adventure Contest so we can get the book printer before October this time around. To enter, write us an original Call of Cthulhu or Basic Roleplaying adventure which take place over Halloween.

Our contest winners will receive one PDF copy and one physical copy of the monograph, as well as a $50.00 gift certificate redeemable through our Catalog.

Here's your chance to see your name in print, spread some Halloween joy, and win some groovy Chaosium stuff.

Halloween Contest Rules

Each entry must be an original CoC or BRP adventure between 5,000 - 7,000 words. Text files or word documents only. Don’t submit PDF’s, quark files, etc. Don't worry, 5,000 words is much shorter than it sounds!

Entries must be submitted by August first, 2009.

One entry per individual.

Adventures can be set in any time period you desire so long as the adventure is original and takes place during Halloween/Samhain.

Adventures must utilize Chaosium's BRP system and no other game system. Yes, our Call of Cthulhu RPG uses the BRP system.

All entries become the property of Chaosium Inc.

All entries must be in English.

Any images or maps that accompany your adventure must be copyright free. Art isn't required.

Entries must be emailed to

Entries must be submitted along with your name, email address, and shipping address.

In the unlikely event that we don't receive enough winning entries to print the adventure monograph, the winners will instead receive copies of all the winning adventures as well as one copy of a different monograph.

Chaosium reserves the right to change these rules as often as we like, with no warning. You can count on the fact that we probably will. Come to think of it, maybe we have already... It's best not to dwell on these things.

Well, what are you waiting for? Check out the contest and take part to win the $50. You can check out the contest at Best of luck!
