Highlights (New Additions)

Lay On Hands Jam - Want to make a TTRPG that uses real-life activities for action resolution? Come create something using the Lay On Hands SRD!

Wanderjam - Come in, come in, travelers! Here, take a seat. Can I bring you tea? Toast? Biscuits? Perhaps a wee nip of something stronger... ah, here. Only for special occasions! Now that's sorted, let me see... hmm? Oh yes, of course, jam! My famous blackberry preserves! You must have heard of them... you did! You came for jam! Then jam you shall have.

SideQuest 2021 - Welcome true believers, to SideQuest 2021! For this event: we're inviting indie creators to all crowdfund our works together in a format similar to ZineQuest or other events. But you can use itchio, kickstarter, or any similar website you want! And this time, WE'RE in control! We don't need companies to advertise for us. This event focuses on a community mentality. We'll set our plans in motion TOGETHER! In short: this event is a collection of ttrpg projects funding during November, 2021!

Paranormal Inc. Jam! - Paranormal Inc. is a gm-less tabletop roleplaying game for 2-5 players. It uses a standard deck of cards and some 6-sided dice to generate a world for you to explore and solve mysteries in. Paranormal Inc. is a game about solving mysteries, struggling under capitalism, and making connections with living and dead alike. It's a game about pushing through your own personal hauntings to help others. #ParanormalIncJam is the chance to create some cool content for Paranormal Inc.! Make mysteries, or playbooks, new moves for the playbooks, whatever your heart desires!

MS Paint TTRPG Jam - Layout is hard. Art is too. Let's rid ourselves of commercial standards and make stick figures in MS Paint. The MS Paint Jam Ethos: Don't think or try too hard. Lean into MS Paint aesthetics. Have fun. "WAIT! I'm on Mac OS or Linux OS!" Don't worry my friend, you may use an equivalently basic program like Paintbrush. Use your judgement about what is and is not in the spirit of MS Paint. If it has layers or grids, you've probably gone too far.

grimDARK: GRIMmunity Content Jam!- grimDARK is the most grimdark fantasy game ever designed. It is adapted from Cthulhu Dark 2e by Graham Walmsley and is currently in its A Fistful of Ashcan Edition, essentially a stable beta. The grimDARK GRIMmunity Content 3rd Party License lets you make whatever you want for grimDARK in any edition without paying The Man (me) any money. More details can be found here or down below. You can make whatever you want if it fits the grimDARK ethos. Make it punk, make it funny, make it grimDARK. See the license for more information.

Adaptation Jam - Adaptation Jam is a four month long game jam where people create adaptations of games by other game developers into other mediums. Adaptations are created by making a video game based off of someone else's tabletop game, or a tabletop game based off of someone's video game. Game designers can find games to adapt by either asking a designer they know or looking through the discussion for the jam, seeing which games designers have given permission to adapt, and asking them.

Random Adventure Jam - Adventures, not systems. I'll fill this out properly when I'm not on my phone okay? No Nazis, terfs, bigots, etc. You'll be booted. If you have to ask if this includes you then it does. Use the generator here to make a title and then write an adventure to go with it. It could be a pamphlet, a zine, whatever. Write adventures for whatever game you want, or make them system neutral. Hex crawls, point crawls, dungeons, whatever. If you're writing for a system with strict licensing requirements cough 5e cough then it's up to you to make sure everything you do follows those rules.

MörkaDungeon Jam - This is a jam for creating megadungeon levels for the Mörk Borg system. The idea is that each level can be connected to another, and thus continually played through.

TPK Game Jam - Welcome to the TPK Jam! The Theme for the Jam is Variations on "T.P.K." We challenge you to create a game using the theme of the jam: the phrase "TPK" or even just the letters T.P.K. themselves. You can feel free to interpret this theme however you like, including: a game using the full phrase Total Party Kill in it's title or mechanics; changing the initialism "TPK" to mean something else (like.. Team Panda Kayaking!), or other variations that make TPK an important element. We wanted to make a Game Jam that allowed for a ton of creativity and gives us a chance to showcase some of the creative talent in the community.

Zine Game Jam 2021! - Zine Game Jam is back! Join Flyover Indies and Kansas City Zine Con for a week of zinemaking and game design! The rules are simple: you have one week to make a zine game OR a zine about games. What's a zine game? We're not picky--any game that can be printed & distributed as a zine. That could be anything from a minizine to a multi-page booklet. If you want some examples, check out the entries from last year's ZGJ.

LetterLARP RPG Jam - Make a Letter LARP or RPG. It's that simple. E-mail, Physical Letters, or Messages. Maybe even a mix of all three are Fair game.

Turn Based Tactics Jam: The Second Raid - This is a month-long game jam geared around turn-based tactics and strategy games. Create your own original system designed to run turn-based tactics and strategy games. Turn-Based Tactics is a genre of strategy games that through stop-action simulates the considerations and circumstances of operational warfare and military tactics in generally small-scale confrontation. Turn-Based Strategy is a genre of strategy game where players take turns when playing rather than going at the same time.

Slasher Jam - A slasher film is a subgenre of horror films involving a killer murdering a group of people, usually by use of bladed tools. Although the term "slasher" may occasionally be used informally as a generic term for any horror film involving murder, film analysts cite an established set of characteristics which set slasher films apart from other horror subgenres, such as splatter films and psychological horror films. Slasher films are a horror classic and a perfect fit for MÖRK BORG. Pick your favorite slasher (or splatter, I guess) flick and write up anything for it. Items, classes, monsters, dungeons, it is all fair game!

Psychohistory Jam - This is a jam inspired by the field of Psychohistory in the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov, which is airing as a series on Apple TV this autumn. Psychohistory combines history, sociology, and mathematical statistics to predict the course of civilizations and can be used to try to shape the future.

Lost & Found Jam - Make some games with the newly-published Lost & Found SRD! If you've ever looked at games like Artefact or Bucket of Bolts and thought "that's barely a game, I could do that!", now's your chance. I've spent the last few weeks putting together the Lost & Found System Reference Document, a guide to the underlying game mechanics of those two games, to make it (even!) easier to make your own game in this style. I'll be on hand to answer questions during the jam. I'm really excited to see what you come up with!

Six By Four - A month-long art, game and design jam celebrating monochromatic dithered artwork, inspired by 6x4 inch label printed. I'm Brian, I run the ttrpg publishing imprint Dungeons on a Dime, and in August I got myself a GK420D Zebra label printer. It's a chunky and robust device, capable of vomiting out up to 30 labels a minute at 230DPI. It produces a deliciously crunchy image, with dot-matrix dithering that reminds me of old GameBoy screens. This month, I want to play with what it can produce, making all sorts of game supplements that I can print out and put in with orders from my store.

Anti-Paladin Filthy Slime Jam! - Pssst, hey kid. Do you revel in filth? Bathe in slime? Celebrate evil? Are you base? Love yellow? Think Comic-Sans is fun and flirty? Then this, my friend, is the jam for you! Create Heretical Artifacts, Profane Icons, Byzantine Deities, Blasphemous Religions, or Crippling Vices! Help us to defile the Misremembered Domains™ plane and tyrannize the gentle folk with debauched creations that sink your games deeper into the mire of despicable wickedness!

Basic TCG Jam : Stellar Rhythms - We're making a community-driven and created trading card game for everyone to play! With very simple base rules and an emphasis on filling in the blanks of rulings during play, Basic TCG has a lot of potentials and is very open-ended for just about anyone interested in TCGs to get into, regardless of skill level! The goal of this jam is to, as a community, collaborate on one focused theme - in this case, the space station Star Central Station!

Harmony Jam- This is a nice long jam, with plenty of time for you to make the adventure game of your dreams! Harmony Drive is a toolkit anyone can use to make a game with a medium level of crunch but a huge level of depth. Let your players make whatever spell appeals to them! Let them use their skills in inventive ways, and risk making things more complicated with Edge Successes! In a Harmony Drive game, the players have the power to choose what happens - and the GM is there to make sure the choices aren't easy.

The Van Jam - Airbrush This Game On The Side Of A Van Jam. Remember those sick ass vans with space wizards riding unicorns through an asteroid field airbrushed on the side? That's what this whole thing is about. Give us your heavy metal fantasy games that look as sick as they play!

Card Mech Jam - After several discussion sessions where the merits and potentials of playing cards in TTRPGS are looked over, the Card Mech Jam is born!

Second Guess Jam - Second Guess games like One White Eye or The Date explore a wide variety of of topics from horror to romance and potentially anything in between. The central conceits are that it's a one page solo game, utilizing a d20 based journaling system, and twist character perceptions as they go, which you can read more about in the excerpt below and in the SRD itself.

Space Western Summer Jam - Space Western Summer Jam is the second in a series of seasonal TTRPG physical game jams I'm running! This one has a theme of Space Westerns, and lasts for all of Summer!

Gamer Games Game Jam - The purpose is to show off our true gamer cred by designing TTRPGs and TTRPG materials based on our favorite video games!

MÖRK BORG Album Crawl: Jam Session 2: ALBUM CRAWL ROCKS THE 80s - Today, members of the Trve Mörk Borg Discord Server unleash Album Crawl: Jam Session 2: ALBUM CRAWL ROCKS THE 80s. In this jam, everyone is invited to created adventures, dungeons, and other dread inspirations for the roleplaying game MÖRK BORG. However, your glorious content MUST BE THEMED after an album from the '80s. Not '80s inspired, not '90s. 1980 to 1989, baby.

The Five Powers Jam #2 - New Year - New Jam! This Jam follows the same idea as the first Five Powers Jam, but this time we will take more time! Good things need time - but that doesn't mean, you can't submit something you created in a rush of inspiration! In fact, being creative is the main reason to have a Game Jam to begin with, so don't overthink this! Have fun with it!

Megadungeon Jam - Hello! Welcome to the Megadungeon Jam! This was born out of a bit of a confession on twitter at one of my deeper design goals. I've always wanted to make a megadungeon but had never even attempted to endeavour at how to do so. It seemed many others felt the same, so here's a year-long opportunity to try your hand!
