TROPHY? TRIFOLDS?

What's Trophy? Trophy is a pair of dark fantasy role-playing games by Jesse Ross, first published in Codex Magazine. This jam is for incursions (scenarios) for Trophy Dark—the original version, for one-shot tragic eco-horror stories about treasure hunters meeting their dooms in the ancient, unforgiving forest.

What's a trifold? It's a lo-fi medium for distributing adventures, modules, and games, made by folding a sheet of paper into thirds like this:  

A sheet of A4 paper in landscape format, folded into equal thirds with vertical creases.

The goal of this jam is to make a Trophy Dark incursion that:

  • fits on a single A4 trifold (you can use both sides)
  • is lo-fi, monochrome, and print-friendly (no fancy graphics or backgrounds; what counts as 'fancy' is up to you)
  • uses one of the 36 randomly-generated Themes, to be revealed at the start of the jam

If you're looking for a trifold pamphlet template to make layout a bit easier, you can find a bunch freely-available here:


You can use the #TrophyTrifolds tag on twitter to talk about the jam and your entries!


WHAT DOES AN INCURSION NEED?

At bare minimum, an incursion needs:

  • title, Themeattribution, and an introduction that gets across the scenario
  • a set of Moments, arranged however you like (e.g. all at once, or per Ring)
  • a set of Conditions, arranged however you like
  • at least 1 Terror and 1 Temptation for each of the 5 Rings

The following are also good, but optional:

  • poem, song, or other lyrical introduction to the scenario and Theme, as many incursions have
  • new character creation options (Occupations, Backgrounds, Drives, and Rituals) written for your incursion
  • a Theme-, genre-, or setting-appropriate d66 table

Use whatever art and layout you like (as long as it's print-friendly)!


WAIT, RANDOM THEMES?

At the start of the jam I'll unveil a list of 36 randomly-generated words for you to pick your Theme from! Even if you pick the same theme as someone else, you'll probably still go in different directions.


SETTING? GENRE?

You don't have to restrict yourself to the Trophy setting, or the forest as the location where your incursion takes place, or dark fantasy or psychological horror as the genre you'd describe your incursion with! Feel free to create something different or new.
