One of the founders of our hobby and one of the most unsung contributors to Dungeons & Dragons, Len Lakofka has passed away at the age of 76.
Along with the many adventures, classes, spells, and rules he created, Len was also father of the Suel in Greyhawk, designer of their gods, and namesake of the Lendore Isles.
The value of his work goes without saying, but his presence will be sorely missed. The adventures of Leomund go on.
Welcome to Postfest XII(Richfest 2009): Ancient Greyhawk Sites
This Postfest will focus on ancients sites scattered throughout the World of Greyhawk. You could write on an ancient burial site in the Cairn Hills, the ruins of a long forgotten city buried in the depths of the Amedio Jungle, or even about a mysterious monolith located on a small Island in the Dragon Sea. Your entry can take the form of a gazetteer entry, a tale of the site such as a sage or local old timer might relate to an adventuring party, or it may take the form of an actual adventure.
Now, on to the format. Your submission should be in the realm of 2,000-4,000 words or so in length(though adventure sized submissions will be accommodated as well). That is not set in stone, but it is a good average length for any article. Try to write on something that hasnít already been covered in too much detail anywhere, if at all. Creating something new and unique is highly encouraged! Hopefully we'll see a lot of submissions based on peoples' own campaign material that they have developed over the years. As usual, be sure to not only Spell Check your article but read it over yourself, as Spell Check will catch many things, but not always everything.
You may submit your article HERE. Be sure to write a short introductory teaser for your article and be sure to cite any sources you may have used as well. ***See the directions at the top of the Submissions page if you have any problems with the text not being accepted. Even if the text is not accepted, you must still submit the article on the Submissions page. When e-mailing an article to editorscanonfirecom, be sure that your article is in simple Word form, with no formatting of any sort if possible(the simpler the better). This just makes things a whole lot easier for us to deal with, so please take the time to do this.
Make sure you put the title of your submission in the following format:

***Submissions are due by September 30th, the last day before Brewfest begins.

With the deadline looming fairly close, I am curious whether there is anyone with plans for articles submitted, or about to be submitted.
Anyone, anyone ... Bueller, Bueller?
Love that movie...
Anyway, I got inspired (pun intended - you'll see) and wrote something. Going to submit it now. _________________ -Phil<br /><br />You can have my 1st Edition DMG when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
Postfest submissions will begin posting in the next few days.
I'll give those who are running behind until October 7th to get their entries turned in. _________________ - Moderator/Admin (in some areas)/Member -
