Cairn has occasionally been called a "forest fantasy" roleplaying game. But what does that mean? Do the characters lose themselves in a deep wood, surrounded by horrific creatures? Or are they brave travellers, exploring the uncharted depths of their world? What is a forest, anyway? For the month of March I'm asking folks to create content around either:

This can be in the form of adventures, settings, loadouts, hacks, whatever! You do not need to write something for the Cairn system specifically, though that would be very nice! If you do provide stats for another system, please reach out and we'll get a conversion going. And of course, system neutral is just fine. You can charge whatever you like, and there is no 3rd-party license requirement.

That's it. I'm excited to see what folks come up with, however small or large! Remember there are already a ton of resources for inspiration. Everything on the website (including the full game) is licensed under CC-BY-SA 4.0

Please join us on the NSR Discord or the Cauldron if you have questions, need help, anything!
