Submit your story to DEATH SAVES!
DEATH SAVES is a comic book anthology dedicated to our favorite dead RPG characters. Whether it be through player error, a Dungeon Master’s contempt, or simply bad luck too many heroes have been taken from us prematurely. Here we celebrate the horrific fates that meet all fantasy warriors in the end.
Submissions will be accepted for 1-16 page FULL COLOR, lettered comic stories. Final dimensions of the book will be 5.25” 7.75”.
I do not have a set number of pages/submissions I will be accepting. I will reach this number based on the quantity/quality of them as well as realities of print publishing. Funds for printing this project will be raised via a Kickstarter (estimated launch, December 2014.)
Stories for the submissions can be funny, or tragic, or romantic, or whatever. Every gaming table is different. However, one constant is that the real relationships between players impact their fantasy characters’ fates as much as the dice. Some stories might be set exclusively “within the game” while others may focus exclusively on conflicts between players around the kitchen table. Maybe some combination of the two is what works best for you.
Tell us about your favorite fantasy gaming character, and why high stat points weren’t enough to save her from the goblin hordes. Talk about the player you used to have a crush on, or just make something up. Keep it interesting and don’t take yourself too seriously.
