Contest Summary: Submit a title and a short description for an adventure suitable for use with Gutshot.

Every month in 2007 and through the start of 2008, we'll select at least one entry, prepare it for publication, and release it as a PDF for free download at our Website. That person will receive a free "La Vaquera" miniature. In May 2008 , we'll select the best adventure of the year and award that author the Grand Prize. The general public will vote on the remaining authors and that winner will receive the Jury's Prize in January 2008. Two drawings will also be held: random winners will be selected from everyone who submitted a valid adventure idea, and from everyone else who voted.
