To be perfectly frank and blunt, the reason we will not be having Arcanicon next year is that we have no writers. These large events take a TON of manhours to write and are a huge commitment. We had no one volunteer to wrestle with that beast for next year and none of us want to "phone it in" given that people will be spending precious cash and vacation time to attend.

Huh.

What kind of writing? Mods? Scripting BI's? Mind elucidating a little?

Thank you for the update. This is sad news.

Just read this, kinda late to the party, but I wanted to express my thanks for this sentiment. It shows a commitment to quality over quantity and the experience for attendees over cash (not that anyone actually made money on Arcanicon). Plus, now there's one less stressor in your lives to deal with!

My thanks to everyone that worked so hard to provide a great gaming experience in past Arcanicons!!

Well, if you put Arcaniscon somewhere I could get to (Florida),I’d be willing to write a whole thing. I’ve always wanted to do a special event.

You're always welcome to write an adventure for the campaign. I'm sure everyone would love an additional adventure to play.

Additionally, if you have a plot idea for a mega-event (with up to 2 mods leading into it), please feel free to send an outline to Henry & Cody and we could consider it for 2019. Although I cannot say for certain we could guarantee Florida, we could look at options to either host it there or possibly get you to wherever we could host.

Everyone: please note this is not a guarantee for Arcanicon 2019, just trying to keep options open.

That was mostly a joke, but why not?

Let that be a lesson to you - offers to write will not go unnoticed.

Seriously though, before embarking on writing a multi-part adventure special for a venue that doesn't exist, I would urge you to write a self-contained Soft Point.

As a reminder to you and all other readers, the process to submit adventures for the campaign are:

1. Send a brief (1 paragraph or two at most) synopsis of what the plot of the adventure is to PCIHenry@gmail.com

2. Once approved, send a detailed outline breaking down the adventure, scene by scene.

3. Once that is approved, writing can begin in earnest.

Thank you,

Henry
