Threshold CfC: Issue #20 Skothar!

Post by Sturm » Tue Mar 13, 2018 2:48 pm

Issue 20 - Skothar
Where ancient Blackmoor once laid, the most unknown and mysterious continent of Mystara!

Image

Proposal Deadline: April 15th, 2018
Manuscript Deadline: May 15th, 2018
Issue Published: By July 21th, 2018

As we are finalizing production of issue 19 (Planes and the Immortals, to be published in April), we are now accepting proposals for issue #20 which will be focused on Skothar to be published in July!

There have been several threads about the continent recently so I hope there will be some contributors. Thorfinn recently made his map of the continent and we would be happy to publish it in the magazine too. I have my own map but more versions, more choice :)
Havard and LoZompatore certainly have some material on pre-cataclysmic Skothar.
I will also do my own article on the history and people of the continent, trying to summarize also the existing fan material.
Skothar has M-oriental cultures, the M-scythians Jennites, the M-africans Tanagoro and much more, including ruins of Blackmoor, so there is plenty of inspiration for contributors!

If you are interested in contributing, write here or to the Threshold mail which is published on the last page of any issue.
The manuscript deadline is indicative but can be extended with the editor (me), so do not worry too much!

Anticipated contents so far:

- Skothar maps
- History and people of the continent
- ?

Great, as the publication date is in July, we have some elasticity in the manuscript deadline, moreso if the contributor keeps the editor posted about progress.

If interested I could write some extra stuff on the Beholder city Kargash on Skothar.
Beholder city of Kargash
Beholder Breeds on Mystara and their cities

Just let me know :geek: :mrgreen:

Yes sure Kargash could work well as an article already, but if you want to expand it further, even better.

I will bump this thread from time to time until April to remind people there is time to send proposals about Skothar for issue #21 of Threshold magazine!

I'm trying to finish something originally from skotar. Problem is I haven't been able to get some time from my work. Hopefully, I could finish it.

Ok there is still time and if you keep me posted on your progress the deadline of May can be extended, as publication is in July.

Last bump, deadline would be now for proposals but articles could still be accepted if the author is confident he/she can write something by May/June. Article deadlines could be flexible if the editor (me) is keep posted, and depending also on the foreseeable amount of proofreading/image searching the article will need on my part.
