Due to the delays in getting the main Gor RPG and resource book out because of the art I am forced to start looking into putting out – or at least commissioning – supporting material in advance of the books being released. I also have to update the game material to account for the latest novel, PLUNDER.
As such I am looking for some artists and – in a rare turn of events – writers, to help me get this supplementary material up and going.
I’m not quite ready to commission yet, but will be in the near future. I want to produce a piece of the material myself to demonstrate what I’m after to people. Still, if you want to pre-register your interest let me know.
The job will be adventure writing, mostly in a loose, investigative structure, without the statistics for the creatures/people involved. The target will be 6-7k words for which you’ll be paid 0.03 USD per word with a maximum payout of $200.
Familiarity with Gor is necessary, but you don’t have to be au fait with the entire canon.
Background material will be provided.
Since you won’t be writing system material this is less important, but a familiarity with the OpenD6 system will still be helpful.
If you can make available an example of your adventure/scenario writing work for me to peruse, that would be very helpful.
The job will be producing three to four (or more if willing) quarter A4/Letter illustrations at 600 dpi in black and white. This will usually be 1-2 figures, a figure and monster, an object or similar. Basic rate will be $100 USD for these four illustrations but this is negotiable to an extent and you’ll be given as much creative leeway and other benefits as possible.
You should be willing and able to draw (tasteful) nudity to the point of bare breasts and some illustrations may require a familiarity with a BDSM aesthetic, though most will be more along sword and sorcery or planetary romance lines. Think Frazetta, Royo, Cho etc and you get some idea.
You’ll be provided reference material for descriptions and examples of existing art to work from.
Applications should be made to firstname.lastname@example.org and please do pass this information along.
