This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

« on: March 12, 2006, 12:43:23 PM »
MODERNIZED, the free fan-made zine for modern, futuristic, and historical gaming in any game system, now offers $15 USD for articles.
From now (March 10th) until Friday, March 24th, MODERNIZED will be accepting article proposals at their email address ( These proposals should give a fair idea of what the article is about, what game system (if any) it is intended for, and should be 300 words at most. They will select from these proposals the articles that will appear in MODERNIZED, and will send notification of acceptance and article request emails by Monday, March 27th. Authors will have until Monday, April 10th to submit their completed 3000-word articles to MODERNIZED. Each author will then be paid (via PayPal or a more convenient method if one is necessary) the sum of $15 USD when MODERNIZED receives the article. Issue #4 is expected to be released Monday, April 24th, 2006.

Only one draft per author at this time.
