A Town, A Forest, a Dungeon

According to the website, Cairn is an adventure game about exploring a dark & mysterious Wood filled with strange folk, hidden treasure, and unspeakable monstrosities. And there certainly are plenty of excellent Cairn adventures (and just as many conversions) out there, but not nearly enough of them feature forests and dungeons as their primary focus! What would a "quintessential" adventure for Cairn look like, anyway? Well, this jam aims to find out!

The theme is "A Town, A Forest, a Dungeon." Obviously, that means any submissions should feature those three things. Everything else is up to you. For some great examples of these themes, check out the following adventures! Not all feature all three elements but they are definitely worth reading for inspiration,

Unlike previous jams, I ask that any submissions have stats native to Cairn. If you're already working on something for another system and would like to submit it, please reach out on the Cairn Discord server to ask for help converting (a simple page of notes will suffice).  Feel free to join anyway, just to chat! We have a jam channel as well.

You can charge whatever you like, and there is no 3rd-party license to create products for Cairn. If you absolutely must, there is a "for use with Cairn" logo in the "Cairn Game Files" folder. Everything on the website (including the full game) is licensed under CC-BY-SA 4.0, so feel free to take whatever you find there, just remember to understand the license first! 

Finally, I've written a Forestcrawl generator you may find useful.

 I'm excited to see what folks come up with, however small or large!
