Burgs & Bailiffs: more submissions please!

Want more grimness in your fantasy setting?




Burgs and Bailiffs is a collaborative project aiming to give you, discerning DM, free material to bring some Middle Ages grittiness and despair to your campaign world. B&B will not be a boring history journal, but will instead contain small articles on specific topics and how to integrate them with your campaign.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday the 22nd of August, while a first draft is the 24th of September 2012. We can be flexible with deadlines, but not too much.

This is the current list of proposals:

  • Pestilence, Putrescence and Pustules
  • Realistic Medieval Archery
  • The Importance of Being Earnest: intricacies and ambiguities of medieval feudalism
  • On Agriculture: Toiling the Land for Fun and Famine
  • To Feed an Army

If you want to contribute send me an email ( tsojcanth+burgsandbailiffs@gmail.com ) specifying:

  1. the title of the article
  2. a two line summary of the content
  3. expected length (a very rough estimate)

If you want to write on a topic already covered, don’t let this stop you. There’s no limit to the number of articles on diseases we’ll print. 🙂
