Friday opens round one in the 2009 version of Paizo’s RPG Superstar contest. As was the case last year, the winner will secure a paid commission to design an RPG adventure module, though this time, it’s specifically for Paizo’s Pathfinder system. To enter the first round, interested contestants need to submit an original wondrous item by January 2nd. From those entries, judges will select the best 32 to continue. Further rounds will involve design tasks including a villain, a villain’s lair, and a full adventure proposal, with each being judged by public vote.
