Welcome to the summer 2020 One Page RPG Jam. This jam is about making new, one-page table-top role-playing games. Entire systems and settings on single sheets of paper. Rules lite by necessity, one-page RPGs are easy to pick up and learn, but that doesn't mean there can't be emergent complexity or that they can't result in excellent games. Restriction breeds creativity, the only limit is the imagination of the designers and the players.

For more information on, and examples of, one-page RPGs, check out /r/onepagerpgs. Be sure to post your submissions there too.

Jam Rules

  1. Submissions must be a fully playable RPG system on a single page. (Back pages and separate character sheets are allowed.)
  2. Submissions must be made during the jam period specifically for the jam. No old games reposted. 
  3. Hacks of other systems are fine (Laser and Feelings, and Honey Heist are popular examples). Make sure to credit where necessary.
  4. Multiple submissions are encouraged, so long as they are unique and not just reskins of the same game.
  5. Label explicit or graphic content. Consider using or referencing safety tools, such as the X card.
  6. No hate speech or bigotry. Nothing that breaks itch.io ToS or local law. Be cool.

Optional Jam Theme: The aim of the jam is to give people a chance to experiment and try something new. The entirely optional theme for this jam is:

‘Elegance’

It’s up to you how to interpret this, or to ignore it entirely. If the theme inspires you, great! If you have your own idea, that's great too. The important thing is you have fun and make games.
