How to Contribute Free Content?

Recommended Posts

Maaack

What's the best way to contribute free content to the community, get feedback, and maintain authorship? I'm new to this community, but have been playing CoC for a few years now, and enjoy writing for the Lovecraft universe. I was coming up short for advice on this topic in the forums so far.

 

To be more specific, I'd like to contribute a scenario under a free license, probably the Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International Creative Commons license. Secondly, I'd like to get feedback from the community on how to improve it, or even opportunities to run it a couple of more times with other members (newbies and veterans alike). I have one that is nearing completion and am aiming to write two more.

 

Where would I share the scenario? It's currently a Google Doc of 30+ pages. Should I put up a personal website and host it there, put it in a public drop box, or just share the google doc? And then who would I reach out to for feedback? Thanks!

I have somewhat the same question.  I am writing something up now for my group, and after it is used, I am minded to post the scenario as a blog entry.  I am less concerned about maintaining authorial control than the original poster, but I wonder if it would work for him.

I may do that with the final version. Thanks for the suggestion! 

 

You might want to consider submitting scenarios to The Dark Times: http://www.yog-sothoth.com/topic/31045-new-rpg-fanzine-seeks-submissions/

 

Thanks! I reached out to them and asked about their submission guidelines.

Wombat, I am of course always happy to take a look at anything you've written :)

If it's something that fits my groups I might be able to run a playtest for you and feed back, or at least take a look at it in general.  Feel free to PM me.

 

Several kindly Yoggies have given me feedback on my 100+ page scenario and it really tightened things up.  I started a forum thread asking for feedback and found interested people that way.  I now have another one in the Patron forum for a second scenario with development notes as I go.
