Format for Proposing a Project to Tri Tac Games LLC

The general philosophy at Tri Tac Games is that if you have to use insults or excessive obscenity to get the reader's attention, you probably can't write your way out of a paper bag and we don't want to know you.

Tri Tac products should remain PG-13 friendly at all times!

Format for Proposing a Project

Please send an email to summarizing your proposal. We ask that when you send us queries, proposals, and even entire manuscripts via electronic mail that you please respect the following rules:
   Send query letters as plain text (not as fancy or "rich" text formatted by your mailer!) and send outlines and writing samples as text or Word files attached to your letter. Send actual manuscripts as Word files.
   Send files as attachments. Do not just paste text into the body of a message.
   Do not send graphics unless specifically requested (e.g., your contract requires you to provide us with maps).

Include the following in your initial proposal email:
   The Tri Tac setting you're interested in.
   The reason why you're interested in that setting.
   A concise synopsis (one or two paragraphs) of how you would go about the project.
   A list of special skills you have that make you uniquely qualified to write the supplement (if applicable).
   A list of books or professional print or online magazine articles you've written (if applicable).
   Anything else you think we should know about you.

If we are interested in your proposal, we will get back to you. We may ask for additional details, or we may suggest modifications that better suit the setting you are proposing. If we are not interested in your proposal we will tell you and give you at least one reason why we are rejecting your proposal.

Next Step is giving us more information about the specifics of the project itself.
   Title Page (always just one page)
   Table of Contents (usually one page, occasionally two in very long works)
   Introduction (one page or rarely two, and can include Publication History and About the Author sections)
   Chapters (in numerical order)
   Appendices (in numerical order)(if they exist)
   Bibliography (if any books are used as reference)
   Record Sheets or Worksheets (customarily come at the back of the work)

Once the project is defined, practical matters like deadlines, payment, and manuscript discussions follow.

 We have specific page counts for all new Tri Tac products based on the print on demand service we use. Items of smaller page count than our minimums cannot be printed but can be sold in digital format.

18-36 pages for a scenario.
96 -200 pages for a game book that is more than just a scenario.
250+ pages for a novel book.
