The bag of scolding was one of the first things I ever pitched to a gaming magazine. It was a silly cursed item in a pitch containing several RP heavy cursed items. The best part about the form letter? No one signed it. Back in the day, someone would sign it but now, in my mind, NO ONE wanted their name associated with the pitch.

I have a lot of old, rejected pitches and I have friends who have shared their rejection stories with me over the years (usually with many laughs over drinks at a convention). If we played the “What was I thinking?” drinking game, someone would die. Hindsight aside, I think I am going to make this a running feature. It’ll be cathartic and (hopefully) hilarious. I’ll change names to protect the innocent.
