Welcome true believers, to SideQuest 2021!

For this event: we're inviting indie creators to all crowdfund our works together in a format similar to ZineQuest or other events. But you can use itchio, kickstarter, or any similar website you want! And this time, WE'RE in control! We don't need companies to advertise for us. This event focuses on a community mentality. We'll set our plans in motion TOGETHER!

In short: this event is a collection of ttrpg projects funding during November, 2021!

Our goal as a team is to promote independent works together through networking and grass-roots publishing. If your project is part of Side Quest 2021, the work will be showcased on the Side Quest website. All participants can advertise for each other and backers can explore all works in one place. You can submit itchio pages for you works to this jam, just join for the information, or whatever you like.
