Those familiar with the Dungeon Lords game know that there are three events each year – pay day, taxes and a random special event. In the expansion (due for Essen 2012), there will be one more season, so we decided that two random special events happen each year. Of course, this just calls for more interesting and nasty Special Event Cards. We already have some, but we have kept several open slots, as we are sure there are many great ideas amongst creative Dungeon Lords players.
So, if you have an idea for a great Special Event Card, you can submit it to us. If we use your idea, we will thank you in the rulebook and send you a copy of the expansion once it is released.
Before submitting your idea, please read the instructions. The deadline for idea submissions is July 15th, 2012. The results of the contest will be announced later, as we need time to evaluate and playtest the ideas (but no later than the date of the expansion release).
Before submiting your idea, make sure you remember and understand how Special Event Cards work in the game. Also check the existing cards to make your suggestion is of a similar level of harshness. We do not want events that kill the players, nor those that are barely noticeable or even help the players. We prefer events that can be harsh, but whose impact can be mitigated by clever planning.
We are aware you do not know the rest of the expansion content. Do not worry, just forumulate your card so that it works well with the basic game. If it needs some tweak because of the new content, we will gladly do it and still consider you the author of that card.
If you have more than one idea, you can use the submit form more times. But please, do not submit more than two or three ideas; if you have more, please choose only the best ones. Also, check before clicking the submit button, to avoid submitting multiple improved versions of the same card.
Be sure to fill the email correctly; if we pick your idea, we will try to contact you on this email. We will not use the email for any other purposes, neither we will share it with anyone.
