Launch your freelance career!
3 spots available
The ALL-INCLUSIVE support & the visual appeal you need to get noticed.
Ten weeks, one-on-one calls, anytime direct messaging, editing, mechanics, full layout design, custom cover art, & more!
Hey, I'm Beth! I've been working as a TTRPG professional since 2020, starting as a game master and educator. I've run over 1,000 paid games!
My first supplement, She is the Ancient, launched my freelance writing & publishing career in 2021. I've worked with Dungeon in a Box & I'm the Creative Lead on an upcoming Modiphius publication. I also bring nearly two decades of experience in graphic design, art, blogging, and web design. 📜✨
I enjoy the (ever-loving) heck out of helping others discover their passions and successes. Offering this incubator allows me to focus my experience & cheerleader energy to help you make it happen.
Payment plans, Affirm, and Afterpay options are available.
You and Beth have a video call for an hour each week. (For 10 weeks!)
Have questions or need support between calls? Obviously, yes. That’s what my DMs are for!
6,000* words of mechanical, line, & copy editing to help you learn the most.
One full-color digital oil painting + cover design.
30 pages* of fully done-for-you layout by a professional graphic designer.
Don't know how to write your own adventure? Our course will walk you through the baby steps. You can work through the videos between our calls and we can go over the content in more depth as you need.
Custom crafted by Beth the Bard! Stand out with a unique portfolio and make it easy for companies to contact you for work. (available to book for 50% off only during checkout)
Yes! That’s the biggest perk of this offering. You and I (Beth) will chat on a video call for one hour each week to keep you on track and guide your work! I’ll probably show up in my pajamas. 🤷♀️
5E is where most of my experience sits. Because this incubator utilizes my personal experiences and industry knowledge, it’s where my confidence sits.
Due to the digital nature of this offer and its incredibly limited seats + discounted costs, there are no refunds offered.
Kinda both! The course could be purchased as a DIY stand-alone, but this offering includes it as well as personalized coaching, packaging, and portfolio services. (You can’t not follow through on your goals that way!)
If you know 5E but have no writing experience, that’s totally fine. Because this listing includes the bonus “Write Your Own TTRPG Adventure” DIY course, you’re going to learn. Then you’ll have my 1:1 coaching to fill in any blanks.
If you have NO experience playing or running 5E at all, you probably won’t understand what we’re working on.
That’s entirely up to you and the intention you put into this. I fully believe ten weeks is totally sufficient time with hands-on assistance. (Even while working full-time!)
Yes! The OGL still exists for D&D 5e for those that wish to operate within DM’s Guild. For those that wish to publish outside of DM’s Guild, the SRD allows individuals to use the OGL or Creative Commons for making 5e compatibility.
Yes! The course is a bonus addition to this offering and you’ll have lifetime access to it as well as future updates.
Yay! I’m excited to get to know you. Once registered, check your email for instructions on creating your TTRPG University courses account. You’ll see your course dashboard once you do this and log in. You’re welcome to start digging into the course content as much as you’d like while we schedule our live calls.
I’ll email you within 24 hours to schedule the calls and get the ball rolling! We start in December and go through February. Weeks do not have to be consecutive. (This timeline can be changed, but must be completed within six months from the time of purchase.)
I may recommend resources that cost money, but they are optional.
If you add on the discounted portfolio website, there will be additional hosting and domain management costs. We can talk about those specifics, though.
That’s totally fine and we can work out the difference! Layout design is on a per-page basis and editing is on a per-word basis. We will also need to extend the timeline.
Upgrade costs will be determined individually, but the discounted costs would be roughly $5 per extra page, 5 cents per extra word, and $45 per extra week of video and DM support. Again, it’s dependent on the project. Those prices may be higher (or even lower!) in your case.
You can email us directly and we’ll return the favor within 24 business hours.
