2014 RPG Superstar Announced

RPG Superstar 2014Paizo Inc., publisher of the world’s best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, as well as novels, game accessories, and board games, is thrilled today to announce the winner of the 2014 RPG Superstar contest. After 4 months, more than 1000 submissions, and nearly half a million votes, game designer Victoria Jaczko is 2014’s RPG Superstar. Paizo will publish Jaczko’s winning Pathfinder RPG module, The Daughters of Fury, set to release November 2014.

“Victoria’s design decisions—a grief-based magic item, an undead warhorse, a haunted chapel in a land torn by revolution, and a city besieged by a devil trying to collect a debt–are all unusual and interesting choices, showing she has the ability to approach an idea from a new perspective and present it in an intriguing way,” says host and former RPG Superstar judge Sean K Reynolds. “Being able to come up with something new really struck a chord with the voters, allowing her to establish an early lead in the Round 4 voting and maintain that until the end.”

The three runners-up—Robert Brookes of Newmarket, NH, Mikko Kallio of Helsinki, Finland, and Mike Kimmel of Seattle, WA—have won assignments to write Pathfinder Society scenarios.

RPG Superstar consisted of four RPG design challenges spanning several months, led by a team of celebrity judges, consisting of industry luminaries and Paizo game designers and editors. Now in its seventh year, RPG Superstar is Paizo’s annual contest to find the newest talent in game design.
