Material you have created can only be reviewed by yourself if you are of the Quest Giver rank on Patreon.

By submitting your character, you agree to do everything you reasonably can to record during the agreed upon times. If you find you are unable to record on the dates that were decided upon you can back out before the first recording.
If you can, please message the author of the material you want to use material from and inform them that you want to review it. You technically do not need to, but it is polite to do so. This will allow the author to update or change anything they would like to before it gets aired.
If you don’t feel comfortable contacting the author, let me know and I can try to assist you. I will not do all the work for you, but I can help you phrase the message or make first contact if you need.
Not required, but highly suggested, when you contact an author and/or if you are contacted by an author, please forward me all messages that I should be aware of or that pertain to comments the author would like added into the show. This is to protect yourself and the podcast from any misrepresentation and to ensure the author’s requests are acknowledged.
Character submission must include the submission document that can be found at the end of this document as well as within a separate document located in the submission post.
Sample of introduction to a content author:
Hello, this is (Your Name) with the Adventuring Guild. I would like to review your material on our podcast, Homebrew Review. We are a small podcasting group that enjoys playing Dungeons and Dragons with homebrew content. We have found that some of the homebrew material needs to be spotlighted with a review and constructive criticism. Our hope is to share some of the amazing homebrew material created with other players. I’m putting this material up for vote and if it makes it, I will be using it in the upcoming recording. Should it be voted in, I will let you know when you can plan on hearing it over iTunes, Stitcher, or Podbean.
I really enjoyed ________________ about your homebrew material and I have a couple questions about _________ if you would have time to help clear those up for me, I would greatly appreciate it. If you have any suggestions on how to play or any comments you would like to make please include those in your reply.
