January 20, 2012: Rituals Wanted! (http://www.sjgames.com/ill/archives.html?m=January&y=2012&d=20)

The ritual magic system from GURPS Monster Hunters 1: Champions (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/books/monsterhunters/monsterhunters1/) has been so popular, we&#39;re making it into its own standalone GURPS (http://www.sjgames.com/gurps/) supplement. In addition to greatly expanding and clarifying the system, GURPS Thaumatology: Ritual Path Magic will include a collection of sample rituals to help mages do the impossible. And we need help to complete our summoning: your contributions for this chapter!</p> Rules

We&#39;re looking for rituals created using the Ritual Path Magic rules from GURPS Monster Hunters 1: Champions. Expanded details of what we&#39;re looking for and how to format it correctly are in this Microsoft Word file (http://www.sjgames.com/general/guidelines/authors/RPM_Ritual_Template.doc). There are also a few other rules to keep in mind:</p>

Be familiar with SJ Games&#39; style guide (http://www.sjgames.com/general/guidelines/authors/style.html).
Be creative. This is not a supplement for Monster Hunters (although it&#39;ll work great for that), but a standalone magical expansion. Your rituals need not be tied to a monster-hunting cosmology, a modern timeframe, or anything else. (Again, see the ritual template file (http://www.sjgames.com/general/guidelines/authors/RPM_Ritual_Template.doc) for more.)
Be original! All rituals must be your own original creation; do not adapt anything from literature, film, other games, etc.
Terms and Payment

All submissions become the property of Steve Jackson Games. All authors who have material accepted for GURPS Thaumatology: Ritual Path Magic will receive name credit in the supplement. In addition, the three contributors who provide the most and/or coolest submissions (at our sole discretion) will receive a PDF comp copy of the supplement via e23 (http://e23.sjgames.com/). If we receive so many awesome submissions that we can do a follow-up Pyramid (http://pyramid.sjgames.com/) article with the overflow, we&#39;ll follow the same process for them (name credit in that Pyramid issue for everyone, comp copies of that Pyramid issue for the three coolest).</p> Deadline and Contact Info

All submissions must be received by February 17, 2012. All submissions (and revisions, if needed) must be sent as a Word attachment via e-mail to Jason "PK" Levine (pkitty@sjgames.com?subject=RPM Submission), with the subject line of "RPM Submission." Please attach one copy of the Word file, which should contain all of your rituals; do not submit them as plain text or use a separate Word document for each one. (If you think of more cool spells later, but still before the deadline, multiple submissions are fine.)</p>
