I saw in the rulebook that players have the opportunity to write plots. I have a couple questions about it!

1) Is there a specific writing format that is preferred when writing plots?

2) Is there a minimum/maximum length that the plots have to be written to? I have some ideas that would make for quick adventures and others that would take some time to complete.

3) Where do I turn my plot ideas in at? Do I give them to npc camp at an event or send them in via email?

I've only been to a few events but I've had a great time at each one. Hopefully I'll see some of you tomorrow!

I'm a newer player, but I've written a couple plots and would be glad to help how I can.

1) I've seen a couple different formats, so I don't think there's strictly one way. I use an altered version of the Plot Submission Form on the website. If you like, I can send you one of the plots the GMs used in a previous event if you want an example.

2) I believe that any length of plot is welcome as NPC Camp/GMs will adapt or edit.

3) Been sending mine to carpsgame@gmail.com and no one has shown up at my door with a baseball bat, so I guess it's okay.

I'm still learning how to properly stat the creatures and NPCs and the GM staff has been extremely helpful and patient.

It's a lot of fun seeing PCs getting hooked by a plot you've written. The one thing I haven't liked is dodging my own hooks when I see them coming in, but that's a minor price to pay.

Hope this helped.

If you click the C.A.R.P.S. icon at the top right of the forums it will take you to the main CARPS page. Once there you click the shield in the middle that is labeled as talking to carps, I think, and it will take you to page that lists different things such as evaluations or plot submissions. You do t have to submit plots through that but it will give you an idea on the information the staff is looking for.
As for your points
1. See above
2. The minimum length is enough information for them to understand and run the plot and maximum is whatever you feel is need to communicate your plot without unnecessary information. Basically depending on the plot it might be a short write up or it could be multiple pages.
3. Wrexton linked the best email to send your plot to.
