Rolled & Told returns in 2020
It has recently been announced that Rolled & Told, the Dungeons & Dragons magazine released by publisher Lion Forge Comics, will be returning in the Fall of 2020.
With the end of Volume 1, fans were afraid that the series would not continue, but it appears that the series is only going on a temporary hiatus and will return.
If you haven’t picked it up, the first collected edition is already out and the second hardcover, which finishes collecting Volume 1, is coming out on November the 19th.
Rolled & Told is a series put out under the Quillion imprint at Lion Forge. It includes adventures that can be used with Dungeons & Dragons, and articles about the game.
Submissions are still open on the website here; https://www.rolledandtold.com/submissions/
If you want to submit, you’ll likely need some experience writing for tabletop role-playing games. This could potentially be gained through publishing on the Dungeon Masters Guild.
It is rare for a comic book company to have open submissions, and while this isn’t exactly comic book writing, it does present an unusual opportunity for writers.
I’ve written a few more articles about Dungeons & Dragons on this blog, so if you are unfamiliar with the hobby, you should easily be able to find out more by looking through what I’ve already written.
I understand the desire to succeed at the one thing you’re passionate about, but it can be a lot of fun to flex some different creative muscles, and the truth is, you’re more likely to succeed as a comic book writer, if you’re not just a comic book writer.
Expanding your horizons and doing different things will make you more likely to succeed as a writer, so this really is a great opportunity.
