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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Submissions Open!
« on: June 02, 2017, 07:40:51 PM »
Submissions Open is a side project (on my blog), which I've decided to post and share here with theRPGsite. A list of RPG publishers who actively pay for RPG content. It's focus is writing, but I'll likely include submission info for illustrators as well, if it is available.

This is not a thread for discussing publishers. Please, do not post comments. If you know of a publisher who is actively interested and paying for RPG content and they are not on the list, please send me a PM (preferably, with the title of the publication and a link). This is so I can manage this list effectively; or say for instance the publisher is paying for content with limited window I'd recommend you post it as its own thread. For the most part these publishers will be seeking content year around, but if closed part of the time I'd prefer to be able to update that without involving a Mod.

Note: Publishers are not listed in any particular order and most of the information is copy and pasted from my blog. Each publisher will be separated by post. And yes, I just started this, so it will take me sometime to get caught up (hopefully it will be finished by the end of the weekend). If your here early and want the info now, click on my blog link in my sig, when you arrive at me blog on the left panel are tags; click the submissions open tag and all of the relevant info is listed. Or on second thought, (lol) just put it in your search engine... Easy. I will be adding these over the weekend, should be done by then.

Submissions Open List:
Pyramid
Fate Codex
EN World Publishing
Raging Swan Press
The Rifter
Knights of the Dinner Table
The Codex
Pathways
