THE SHORT AND SIMPLE VERSION:
This is a game jam for you to turn aspects of your favorite video games into TTRPGs, or to write TTRPGs inspired by your favorite RPGs. It's a very broad scope, and a little loose on the rules, but here are some basics:
Q: Quick, what's the official tag for this??
Q: How does this work with monetizing my submission?
You are, of course, encouraged and welcome to charge for the content you create, but please be careful of copyright! Mark proper ownership of content if you pull directly from your source, or rely heavily on the "inspired by". Check for a company's fair use or intellectual property policies as well!
Q: Can I make a beat-for-beat copy of my favorite video game?
Well, no. One, that takes agency away from your players and defeats the purpose of running a ttrpg. Two, might as well play the video game instead.
Q: I have questions, how can I ask them of you, the Game Jam Runner?
Hello! I am Mab, nice to meet you! Drop a line here on the game jam page, or find me on twitter @sunshinepaladin!
This page will be updated as I remember things I meant to add, or I get questions, or whatever have you. This is my first game jam, so I will be learning as I go, but hopefully everyone has fun.
