One Page Derelict Jam 2024

Welcome to the third One Page Derelict jam! The venerable One Page Dungeon Contest spread the idea of a self-contained dungeon adventure in only one page. Let's bring this concept to space!

Only one page adventures qualify. Do not submit mini-games, solo games or anything that has rules of its own. This is meant to have many rules-agnostic adventures to play with any set of rules of choice.

Jam Rules

To submit your entry, please follow the following simple rules.

Theme

The One Page Derelict must follow this writing guidelines:

  1. The general theme is science-fiction (or at most science fantasy, but space travel must be a real thing in the setting).
  2. The adventure must be set in a derelict, or hulk, or abandoned ship/station/installation of sort. This derelict may be crash landed on a celestial body as a planet, moon or asteroid.
  3. Include a hook to the adventure: why the characters should embark on the exploration of the derelict?
  4. Your work must be system agnostic. You can't include stat blocks or anything that come from a licensed system, even in OGL (see Licence).

Eligibility

You can submit a previously created work if it respects the general theme of the jam.

Format

Your work should be at least in unlocked pdf format, but you may add other format (odt, doc, txt, markdown, etc) at you discretion. The entry must by one-side page, either landscape or portrait, in a easily printable size (tipically A4 or Letter). If your design is not printer-friendly, consider to include also a ink-light version.

Credits
