Postfest XI(Growfest 2009): Greyhawk Power Groups(Lesser)

Postfest XI(Growfest 2009): Greyhawk Power Groups(Lesser) has now ended.

First, we have a recap of the original Postfest XI(Growfest 2009) announcement:

Welcome to Postfest XI(Growfest 2009): Greyhawk Power Groups(Lesser)

This Postfest will concentrate on "growing" the background and organization of some small-time power groups in the World of Greyhawk. By Greyhawk Power Groups(lesser) I mean those small groups that do not wield multinational power, or even national power, so groups like the Circle of Eight, The Seekers, The Silent Ones, and the various major knightly orders are right out!

This Postfest will focus on those smaller power groups that play a role in more local matters, such as a thieves' guild, a specific church in a town, a bandit gang(NOT one of the Bandit Kingdoms lords, but a lesser bandit serving one of them would be fine), a small time Wild Coast robber baron and his minions, a group of freedom fighters, a fighters' guild, a mercenary band, a cult of any kind, a cell of the Scarlet Brotherhood, an infamous pirate ship/fleet and its crew(s), etc. You get the idea.

These sorts of groups will usually operate as either a foil for PCs/NPCs in a single adventure or a few linked adventures(such as the cult of Iuz in the Falcon series does)or as a useful group for them to know of or be involved with when they are in the area where such small power groups as these have some sort of influence. You can write up your submission as a simple overview of the group you choose to write on, or you can write it up as an encounter, such as a Bandit Gang(your topic) that is ambushing the PCs during their travels!Cool So as to cut down on people accidentally writing on the same topic, please post what you will be writing about in this thread. Duplicate topics are okay but we would like to keep it to a minimum.

Now, on to the format. Your submission should be in the realm of 2,000-4,000 words or so in length. That is not set in stone, but it is a good average length for any article. Try to write on something that hasn’t already been covered in too much detail anywhere, if at all. Creating something new and unique is highly encouraged! Hopefully we'll see a lot of submissions based on peoples' own campaign material that they have developed over the years. As usual, be sure to not only Spell Check your article but read it over yourself, as Spell Check will catch many things, but not always everything.

You may submit your article HERE. Be sure to write a short introductory teaser for your article and be sure to cite any sources you may have used as well. ***See the directions at the top of the Submissions page if you have any problems with the text not being accepted. Even if the text is not accepted, you must still submit the article on the Submissions page. When e-mailing an article to editors<at>canonfire<dot>com, be sure that your article is in simple Word form, with no formatting of any sort if possible(the simpler the better). This just makes things a whole lot easier for us to deal with, so please take the time to do this.

Make sure you put the title of your submission in the following format:

*Fanlareshen Sylvan Elves
By Audraco

“During the Greyhawk Wars, an unusual alliance of elf and man was created in the Fellreev Forest. Since then, the Fanlareshen elves and the Reyhu humans have had to learn how to cope with each other in addition to neighbors such as the Dazark orcs and enemies such as High Lady Xavendra of Iuz. This article expands upon the information presented about Clan Fanlareshen in Iuz the Evil and the Living Greyhawk Gazateer to take into account events which unfolded during the Living Greyhawk campaign in the Bandit Kingdoms region during the years 591 to 599 CY. A community stat block is provided in addition to two dozen briefly detailed NPCs. This supplement uses the 3.5 edition rules and is set in the year 599 CY."
