Looking for a scenario writer

I am looking for someone interested in doing some limited writing and design work, for Nordic Weasel Games.

The products in question will be scenario booklets, for the FiveCore system (skirmish, Company Command or Brigade Commander).

The booklet will contain 5 scenarios, using forces that are relatively typical for the rules.
All 5 scenarios must be in a common period and setting.
At least 3 of the scenarios must have an interesting twist, circumstance or situation.

Ideally, each scenario will present 2-3 variant options for replay value or to adjust the strength of each side.

Each scenario must include:
*Simple map, if required. This can be in image or photo form.
*Setup instructions.
*TO&E for each side.
*Any relevant special rules for the scenario.

You may include a small “Special rules” section, ideally not exceeding 2 pages, if your scenarios require specific special rules to play, such as a winter campaign or a pulp adventure.

You must have knowledge and play experience of the FiveCore system.

You must carry out testing of the scenario yourself, though I will also test on my end.

You must be able to deliver the product in a rapid fashion and must be able to respond to email inquiries quickly and consistently.

Good writing ability is not required, I will do any relevant text rewrites for the published version.
You are not required to do layout and editing of the manuscript.
Simply provide it in plain document format, with any relevant maps as images.

You will be credited as the scenario designer, on the cover.
You will receive 50% of all revenue generated from sales of the scenarios. This can be negotiated, depending on the quality and scope of work submitted.

Payment is provided automatically through Wargame Vault and requires a Wargame Vault account.

I don't currently have alternate options, but if you are really not able to make that work, contact me and we can talk.
