The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful





Description
Note: this is a shared world anthology.

Somewhere in the world, there is a hotel on an island in the middle of a large river. This hotel was designed and built in the 1980s, and its labyrinthine corridors and structural design make no sense at all to the modern eye. And all the while, the deep, dark, swirling waters of the river conceal its secrets.

Unknown to all but its mad designer, this hotel was built as an altar to the Old God that rests under the dark, flowing current. Whether that altar contains the Old God and ensures his slumber, is built to one day call him from his rest, or has some other nefarious purpose is unknown.

But it’s a heck of a place for a bunch of fans to throw a con.

What horrors or humors will happen at the convention? What’s the gaming room like? What happens at the panels, or in the dealer’s room? Who shows up at the room parties? Where the hotel is, and what sort of story happens within it, is entirely up to the author—but some sort of interaction between the Lovecraftian-style Old God in the river and the convention must be a focal part of the story.
