Gypsy Knights Games Art Contest #1

When we first started Gypsy Knights Games back in February this year we had a very spartan art budget (and some would say still is).  So our first few products had covers that were.... lets just say....basic.

Well, we would like to go back and change some of that.  So...we're looking for artists.  And what better way to find some than by having a contest!

What we would like is for you to create a piece of art that will go well with our first worldbook Quick Worlds 1: Kyiv.  Buy or borrow (we'd prefer you not steal) a copy of QW1: Kyiv, read the interior, and then get a piece of art to us.

The winner of the contest will be the person we feel provides us with an excellent piece of art for the cover of the book.  The art should have something to do with the text of the book and hopefully illustrate some scene on Kyiv.  

You will retain ownership of the art, but will be giving us permission to use it (in the style of the later worldbooks with the GK stripe and the black bands) on the cover of Quick Worlds 1: Kyiv (both pdf and possible print run) and as an illustration in a future book (which we hope will be available in print as well as pdf)The winner will, of course, be credited in the book(s).

The winner of the contest will receive $50 and three free copies of any of our existing books (winner's choice).  

Simply send the piece of art and a description of what the artwork depicts to by August 26, 2011.  Winners will be announced on September 1, 2011.

The little things....

So... just figured out that the "contact email" on our website was incorrect.  My fault.  I simply cant believe its taken me three weeks to notice it.

So.... if you've been trying to contact us through the website, the email has been incorrect.  Try it again.  It is now repaired.

Gen Con 2011

Sadly, it looks like no Gen Con again this year.  Its been four years since the last time I was able to get up to Indy.  This year will be no different I'm afraid.  

Next year though.  Next year.

Quick Worlds 11: Chance

Thanks to some great ideas from my good friend Greg Seaborn, we have a new entry in the Quick Worlds series out there.  Quick Worlds 11: Chance is an airless rock around a red dwarf.  

So what do you do with such a place?  Build a casino!  Of course!  In this case, its actually five casinos run by five mafia families.

We think this will be an excellent product for those Referees looking for a place in which to base a gambling adventure, a mafia adventure, or just a good stopover.

Check it out:  Available now at DTRPG!
