Opening Stargazer’s World to other authors

Writers needed! For quite some time now I have thought about opening my blog to other authors. Aside from a few guest posts, 100% of the content on this site has been written by me alone. And keeping up a  “one post per work day” schedule is hard work if you are just one guy.

I gave it some thought, and I am finally ready to open Stargazer’s World to other authors. If you want to join the team, there are a few things you need to know:

  • If you are a member of the team, you retain the copyright to all your posts but you grant me, the owner of the site, a license as detailed on the Legal Information page.
  • I stay in charge of what happens around here. Stargazer’s World is my baby after all and I want to keep some creative control. But have no fear, I am definitely no tyrant. 😉
  • You are free to post about everything you want, as long as it’s about RPGs and within the rules set by the RPG Bloggers Network (and by me of course! Muhahaha)

If you still want to join the team, send me an email (info(at) and tell me, why you want to join the team and what you want to contribute. I will try to reply as fast as possible. If you get accepted you will get a nice entry into the newly-created Team page, a email address, and the right to write and publish posts on this fine blog! Welcome to the team!

Michael Wolf is a German games designer and enthusiast best known for his English language role-playing games blog, Stargazer's World, and for creating the free rules-light medieval fantasy adventure game Warrior, Rogue & Mage. He has also worked as an English translator on the German-language Dungeonslayers role-playing game and was part of its editorial team. In addition to his work on Warrior, Rogue & Mage and Dungeonslayers, he has created several self-published games and also performed layout services and published other independent role-playing games such as A Wanderer's Romance, Badass, and the Wyrm System derivative Resolute, Adventurer & Genius, all released through his imprint Stargazer Games. Professionally, he works as a video technician and information technologies specialist. Stargazer's World was started by Michael in August 2008.

  1. That's a big decision! I thought about doing it for RPG Blog 2, but it seemed like most of my readers were against it. I think it just depends on the situation. I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you find a contributor who's as good at this as you–it's a tall order!! 🙂

  2. Thanks for the kind words, Zachary. Andrew Modro already joined the team this morning, and he's a great writer and has a knack for game design.

    And I already got two requests by people who want to contribute at least irregularly.

    Of course there's always a risk included, when you make such significant changes to a blog, but I think adding more contributors was the right thing to do at this moment. And with all my side-projects it got harder and harder to keep up my posting schedule.
