We Need Your Help!
And not just your money! While our KickStarter is just getting off the ground, we are desperately looking for freelance editors, artists, illustrators, and writers to help us bring The Enchiridion to life.

We are actively looking for freelance illustrators to help us bring The Enchiridion Role Playing Game to life. Cover art, internal illustrations, and site media are our primary objectives right now.
Epic landscapes, daring heroes, ancient secrets. Do you have some work you think we'd like to see?

How to Submit
Interested in sending us your ideas? Cool! But before you get too excited there are some rules and regulations to these things.
Step One: Read and Sign the Unsolicited Submissions Agreement
Unfortunately, any submission that is not accompanied by a signed copy of the agreement gets tossed in the recycle bin. In addition, by submitting your content you are agreeing to the Terms of Service for Enchiridion Games.
Step Two: Download the Template
With the exception of some Cover artwork, we have design templates for everything: Interior art, covers, setting ideas, character abilities - everything. These templates are how we assure the correct format, content, size, layout, and design of our books. These templates serve an additional purpose, they are the guild lines by which we pay, so it's important that they are done right.
Identify what you want us to see, grab the template, and get to work.
Step Three: Submit your Work!
Once you have everything in place, submit it to us and we'll take a good solid look, assuming you have the agreement. We have open minds and know EXACTLY how hard it is to break into an industry like RPGs, so have a little faith. We don't want to step on any body's dreams.
Step Four: Get ready for the Awesome
So, assuming everything looks good and we like your work - then what? Well, in most cases we'll contact you, and start talking about revisions, editing, and have you sign a Freelancer Statement of Work and Work Agreement. Then, on final delivery, depending on if you are a writer or artist, we pay you.
Hey, We're working on it!

Unsolicited Submissions Agreement
MASTER UNSOLICITED SUBMISSION AGREEMENT
SECTION 1. SUBMISSIONS
In this Agreements of Submission, we use the word "Submissions" to mean text, messages, ideas, concepts, pitches, suggestions, stories, illustrations, abilities, formats, artwork, photographs, drawings, videos, audiovisual works, musical compositions (including lyrics), sound recordings, characterizations, software code, and/or other similar materials that you submit, post, upload, embed, display, communicate or otherwise distribute (collectively, "submit") to Enchiridion Games, LLC, its agents, executors, or proxies, (collectively, "Enchiridion").
There are two types of Submissions: Solicited Submissions and Unsolicited Submissions. "Solicited Submissions" means those Submissions (a) that were expressly requested in detail as part of an agreement of work by Enchiridion Games, its agents, executors or proxies of you, to provide to us via any form of electronic communication, or otherwise; and/or (b) that you have created, edited, changed, or captured at the express and explicit request of Enchiridion following direction and communication by us to you through any medium not associated with the site Enchiridiongames.com. "Unsolicited Submissions" are any and all Submissions that do not fall within subparagraphs (a) and/or (b) of this paragraph.
SECTION 2. AGREEMENT OF OWNERSHIP
By signing this Agreement, you agree that Enchiridion is not in any position of confidentiality, trust, or bond with you. You also agree to release and hold harmless Enchiridion, its agents and employees, against any claim of infringement of copyright, trademark rights, or other intellectual property rights in any way related to your submission. You hereby grant us and our licensees, distributors, agents, representatives and other authorized users, a perpetual, non-exclusive, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable (in whole or part) worldwide first right of refusal, and unlimited license under all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy and publicity rights and other intellectual property rights you own or control to index, comment on, and make reference of such Submissions, in whole or in part, in all media formats and channels now known or hereafter devised for any and all purposes including entertainment, news, advertising, promotional, marketing, publicity, trade or commercial purposes, all without further notice to you, with or without attribution, and without the requirement of any permission from or payment to you or to any other person or entity (the "Agreement of Ownership").
In no manner, example, practice, or precedents, does Enchiridion’s receipt and/or review of your materials prevent Enchiridion from developing, exploring, or publishing any similar works. At no time does Enchiridion become agent of fiduciary to you relative to a submission. You also agree that you will not submit these works to any other person (first right of refusal), nor to allow their publication by any person(s) or entities other than Enchiridion until such time as Enchiridion, its agents or proxies, notifies you that your works have been rejected, should you ever be notified of such rejection. You agree that at no time does a lack of your receipt of rejection constitute notice of rejection.
SECTION 3. AGREEMENT OF WORK
In such case that Enchiridion ever accepts your works, you will agree to grant Enchiridion and our licensees, distributors, agents, representatives and other authorized users, a perpetual, non-exclusive, irrevocable, fully-paid, royalty-free, sub-licensable and transferable (in whole or part) worldwide license, and unlimited license under all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, privacy and publicity rights and other intellectual property rights you own or control to use, reproduce, transmit, display, exhibit, distribute, index, comment on, modify, create derivative works based upon, perform and otherwise exploit such Submissions, in whole or in part, in exchange for Enchiridion's standard payment as part of the Statement of Work and Work Agreement, with the understanding that it is the full and complete works requested that are considered the Solicited Submission. If you fail to provide the full and complete works requested, any part thereof becomes the full and complete property of Enchiridion, and you grant Enchiridion complete ownership of such works, with or without payment or remittance.
If you wish Enchiridion to consider your submission on the terms stated above, please sign and return a copy of this document along with your submission.
SECTION 4. TL;DR
We are not explicitly asking you for a specific pieces of work, therefor it is “Unsolicited”.
Bottom line, we will not steal your work, but if you submit something and years later we create something kind of like that: we did not get it from you. We will probably archive or index the submissions we receive, to make sure we pay people for their work, as well as analytics. We will pay you for your work if it is accepted. Period.
We own our ideas. If we have an idea it’s ours. You own your ideas. If you send us submission, and we are trying to find a place for that idea, we get the right to call dibs. You can’t send it to a bunch of other people too. We’ll let you know if we don’t want it, promise.
