Taking Submissions: Fanatical Issue 3
Deadline: March 31st, 2023
Theme: Stories should be inspired by/based on tabletop games – roleplaying games, board games, miniature wargames.
Tales from the Tabletop
These stories should be inspired by/based on tabletop games – roleplaying games, board games, miniature wargames.
Though Fanatical may take it’s name from the concept of fan fiction, we’re not looking to get sued here.
- A story about an adventuring party consisting of a dwarf, an elf, a human and a halfling going into a dungeon to fight a dragon is fine. A story specifically set in a copyright protected world of Dungeons & Dragons, with reference to its locations and characters is not.
- A story about a genetically engineered super-soldier in power armour fighting aliens in the far future is fine. A story about a Space Marine fighting Xenos in the grimdark universe of Warhammer 40,000 is not.
