Songs and Sagas is a condensed OSR inspired tabletop role-playing game of axes, runes, spirits and legends. In this game, all players work together to unveil the story of fierce warriors striving to forge a new life in the midst of an unforgiving alien wilderness.

But it's also more than that. It's also an open-licensed game system and toolkit fine-tuned to allow others to easily create their own game of exploration and dangers. 

It employs familiar rules while adding fresh twists, is solo-friendly, highly compatible with OSR games and bestiaries, and much more.

Guidelines

The Jam

The goal of the jam is to design and publish a game based on the system that powers Songs and Sagas, or to release a third-party supplement to be used with the game within the set deadlines of the jam.

Price

You can price your game as you wish. You could use a "Pay What You Want" model or make it a paid game. Use the model that you are most comfortable with. If you submit a paid game, consider providing community copies!

Promotion

To make your game reach as many people as possible, use the #SongsAndSagasJam tag, and don't hesitate to tag @rpdeshaies so that I can do help you boost it!

Size

You can release a document or game in any size or format you desire. "Songs and Sagas" was released in a landscape bifold pamphlet format, making it very accessible, as people could print it at home and use it as is.

That being said, if you want to create a full-fledged book using this system or as a complement to the original game, go for it!
