Postfest VIII(UPF1): Seaton & Salinmoor

You just can't keep the Canonfire! Community down it seems! Happy First, here is the original Unofficial Postfest #1(or Postfest VIII as I am calling it, just to keep things in order) announcement:

"Its ON! Unofficial Postfest: Seaton and Salinmoor

Greyhawkers, with the blessings of Boccob and CanonFire! Administration, here we are announcing the first Unofficial Postfest. By that we mean one that has been initiated by members.

The topic is Seaton and Salinmoor.

Plenty has been written about the town of Saltmarsh and the nearby sections of the Hool Marshes, but very little is known about Viscounty’s capitol of Seaton or other areas of Salinmoor, such as the town of Burle.

Due: Sunday, September 15, 2007

This August and the first half of September, we ask writers to flesh out unknown aspects of Salinmoor, with particular, although not exclusive emphasis on the town of Seaton. The goal of this topic is to provide the noticeably absent details for one of the hottest adventuring spots in the Flanaess. What are the economics of the area? What are the shops and who are the NPCs? Why are the lowland marshes and upland moors so doggone salty? These are just a few of the questions your might answer. Your article may take any direction, drawing on existing works, such as Wesley's Map of Seaton ( ), or devising something entirely on your own, for which there is plenty of opportunity.

Statistics are welcome for any edition, but creative effort is better spent on the elements that make your subject interesting and uniquely Greyhawk.

The Guidelines
There are no restrictions to your imagination, there are a few rules that govern content and format.
- The subject must have a World of Greyhawk theme.
- You are not restricted to canon, you may choose a subject of your own design.
- The subject should be about something in Salinmoor, or related thereto, preferably with a connection to the town of Seaton. (If you feel like writing about something else, submit that too, you don't need a postfest to contribute!)
- Please try to keep articles to one or two pages long (600 - 1200 words), though longer submissions will be accepted.
- You may submit more than one entry.
- Entries should be submitted to Canonfire! by September 15, 2007.

Unlike a traditional Postfest, we are asking that staff NOT post all the articles on a separate page, but rather release them on the front page, one every few days/week to help keep up the pace of fresh releases.

Have fun, and drop a note in this forum if we can answer questions or help in any other way.
