Flying Towers: A Cartography Contest

People love maps. They come in useful in tabletop roleplaying games, plus they’re just wonderful to look at. They can be a form of art, and they showcase wonderful and sometimes strange worlds and locations. Recently, we had a poll that asked you, the voting public, what type of map you’d love to have cartographers depict for you in an upcoming contest. Now it’s time to start the contest and see what wondrous flying towers we...

Cartography Contest Poll

Attention all cartographers and fans of maps! Kobold Press is going to have a cartography contest soon, but we want you to choose which type of map you’d prefer to see. So, here are ten ideas. Some are more focused than others, but all should be fun. Pick one, and after the poll closes on Wednesday, August 14, 2013, we’ll post contest rules and fun details. Thank you in advance for sharing your choice with us! What type of map would...

Kobold Artistry II Contest Update

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received several excellent entries for this contest (thanks go to all who have entered thus far!), but we’d love to see more! In the interest of allowing more of you to take part in this art contest, we’re going to extend the deadline out to Monday, June 10, 2013. You can read the contest rules if you haven’t already, and you can also view last year’s contest entries to see the wide...

Kobold Artistry II: Magical Wonders

Magic plays an important role in fantasy settings. From the searing heat of the fireball spell to the well-known and well-loved magic missile spell that wizards have relied on over the years, magic can grant you enjoyment at the gaming table and give those with artistic talent an outlet for providing us with stunning art. Creatures formed from magic play in the minds of many a gamer as he or she rolls dice, and some folk draw what they see in...

Lost Magic: The Winning Spell

The polls are closed, the responses collected, and the announcement? We’re making it right now! A quick note before we announce the winning spell, though. The contest polls showed a very CLOSE race among the spells, which was exciting and fun. Clearly, we had some excellent finalists — and that made it hard for the voting public to pick a clear winner. Now, on to the actual announcement. The winning spell in the Lost Magic contest...

Lost Magic Finalists

After receiving over forty submissions, our panel of esteemed judges had the hard task of narrowing those down to five finalists, which we now present to you. Please take a look at the wondrous spells, evaluate them, and vote for one of them. We’ll be closing the poll down on April 16, 2013, so vote before then or you will forever lose your chance to help pick the winner of the Lost Magic contest. Before we jump into the entries, we here at...

Lost Magic: A Spell Contest

Are You a Crafter of Magic? Long have the hallowed halls of the clergy and the research libraries of arcane lore seen spells both divine and arcane in design shimmer with power and might. But are all the spells known? We think not. In fact, we believe many more await discovery, and that’s where you come in. Yes, you. Lost Magic is a contest brought to you by Kobold Press, and it promises to enrich campaigns with more magic—magic designed...

Castle Contest Winners!

The turnout on the Castlespotting Contest was excellent, and I was amazed by your clever deductions and by strong Google-fu of many of the entries. Fortunately, many of the Castlespotting images were submitted by readers and not available online, and that’s where things got interesting… I was flat-out impressed at how many people got 20 right, and floored that a few got 21 correct, but only one team got 22 castles right out of 23...

Castlespotting! A Kobold Contest

Greetings, fellow architecture mavens! It is I, Wolfgang Baur, eccentric game designer!

Your challenge: Identify the most castle pictures from the set of 23 images below between now and Sunday, March 3, with a winner to be declared on Monday the 4th, GM’s Day. A few will be...

Valhalla Calls…Sersa Victory’s Crown of Charon

After being chosen as a finalist by the judges and receiving the largest number of votes by our voting public, Sersa Victory’s Crown of Charon victory has received the Call to Valhalla! Congratulations, Sersa! We asked Sersa to give us a few words to share with you all, and here’s what he had to say: “Thanks to all the judges and voters—I’m humbled to have had my pitch chosen. This is a great opportunity to expand my...

Valhalla Calling: The Judges Have Ruled…and You Can Vote!

This is the moment many of you have been waiting for—the moment when we announce those who have made it into our final five. The moment when you can read each pitch and vote on it. The moment when YOU can help us decide who should be called to Valhalla! Our esteemed panel of judges read and debated over the pitches, and now they’ve narrowed down the options to five, which you can now read. Before we jump into the pitches, we want to take...

The Horns Have Sounded: Valhalla Calling Update

We are pleased to report that, as of today, the Valhalla Calling contest has received over ten submissions! That leaves under ninety spots open within the ranks of those who wish to join the fun. As we hit more milestones, we’ll post them here so that you have an idea of where things are. Right now, you have both the time and space to continue to hone your own pitches (if you aren’t among the ones who have already submitted a...

The Kobold World Conquest Challenge

I, Wolfgang Baur, eccentric game designer, receive letters from Kobold fans all over the globe. Kobold Quarterly and Open Design products are being played and enjoyed in North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. This Fall I will release the Midgard Campaign Setting, a worldbook featuring seven fantastic regions of mystery and adventure. The other evening I had an epiphany that connected the two: to celebrate the...
