Nothing New Under the Sun

No one had any delusions of originality when we launched WoAdWriMo. This project is directly inspired by NaNoWriMo, the National Novel Writing Month, though our methods and goals deviate from that endeavor. Game design challenges like Game Chef and the 24 hour RPG did much to convince us of the feasability of WoAdWriMo.

But we were unprepared to discover that WoAdWriMo is covering the same exact ground as another effort. June may be Worldwide Adventure Writing Month, but December is the Knights & Knaves Alehouse Module Writing Month. Knights & Knaves is a fabulous message board community dedicated to what they like to call "Gygaxian D&D", meaning the original Dungeons & Dragons boxed set from 1974 and the first edition of Advanced D&D. Anyone still interested in these august incarnations of the game would do well to visit the K&KA boards. Note that despite the tight focus of the community, the K&KA module writing challenge is open to any system.

The goal of your WoAdWriMo team is two-fold: to motivate people to write adventures and to help share those adventures with other GMs. Anything that accomplishes those goals meets with our hearty approval. If you would rather work under the aegis of the Knights & Knaves program, we encourage you to do so. If you want to take both challenges, that would be excellent. Or if you want to write a module for K&K then submit the results to the WoAdWriMo database, we will gladly host your adventure.

Later today we'll field more FAQ questions.
