This jam is now over. It ran from 2022-04-01 05:00:00 to 2022-04-23 05:00:00. View results

This month’s theme is “Overcoming of Fear”

What does this mean for a setting where it’s expected that Samurai do not fear death? Is it fear for their souls, like in the case of a Shadowlands threat? A fear of lost legacy like with the Lying Darkness? Or simply a fear of not meeting their lord’s strict expectations? 

There are many applications of this theme that are obvious, but still there are infinitely more besides that. Best of luck, and overcome your fear of this challenge. Although one page is such a limited amount of space, we believe you’ll do great!

Submit your one-page adventure – The most popular entry will win a physical copy of the 5th Edition Supplement "Fields of Victory" and the accompanying adventure "Blood of the Lioness", or an equivalent amount of credit through DriveThruRPG ($60). The top three submissions will be featured on the CourtGames RPG podcast where we will give our general thoughts and tips.

This is a month-long jam (Apr 1 - 30) -- 3 weeks will be dedicated to submissions, followed by 1 week of voting.
Contest will be voted on by the community, where the "overall best" will win.
