POW!erful TalesPOW!erful Tales will be an anthology of stories set in the universe of POW!'s Tripod City. Tripod City is a major metroplex on the shores of Lake Mohawk, the 7th Great Lake. It's your typical rust belt town with typical problems of urban crime and corporate corruption. Complicating these problems are super-villains (often created by the spread of the one time super-secret drug MU-T8) and of course the occasional alien invader or slumming god.
We're looking for exciting, skillfully written superhero stories. Several planned stories are set in Tripod City, the setting for Peryton Publishing's POW! RPG, but this is not a requirement for consideration. Writers interested in using the POW! setting or characters should consult the forums. We have no real restrictions on style or content; tongue-in-cheek adventure is just as welcome as angst-driven heroism. Of course, we cannot consider stories that refer to characters owned by third parties; so please don't submit anything with your favorite comic-book heroes. Please submit your story to pow at perytonpublishing dot com as a .DOC or .RTF file attached to your e-mail.
The deadline for POW!erful submissions is December 1st, 2008. The book is scheduled for publication in February, 2009.
