The Lone Wolf Discord server is hosting a solo game jam! Solo tabletop gaming is all about playing tabletop games by yourself, without a group. Some games are designed for solo play like Ironsworn or The Wretched. Other people adapt traditional games like D&D or OSR systems to work with one person. Other people come up with their own original ways of playing.
A solo player has to account for the roles of both GM and player, so people have come up with Game Master emulators, generator tables, even player emulators, in order to offload some of the creative work.
That's where this game jam comes in! Make something that someone could use when they're soloing. Be ambitious and make a whole new system. Be realistic and come up with a few tables to generate something. Develop a setting or some NPCs. Write a new oracle, muse, or game master emulator. Make a journaling game. Anything goes as long as you can tie it to solo gaming.
The server is full of people who want to develop something but also want a bit of a push to get it done. Join us in making something! And to honor that, please make something for this jam. It's alright to submit to multiple concurrently running jams though if you feel that's appropriate.
This time, we're offering a selection of inspirations to spur creativity. You may choose to use any, all, or none of them.
In solo fashion, some random nouns to spark ideas: Poet. Quarrel. Suffering.
A suggestion for mechanics is: A Magic System.
It's your choice how you include any of those sparks, to what extent, and where.
If you have any questions or want to chat about your game, please join us at the Lone Wolf Discord server. We're friendly and very rarely bite.
