Write Your Own TTRPG Adventure​

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had help figuring out how to write and publish your game? Starting on Sept 4th, we personally take 20 creators from start to finish over six weeks.

Cohort Begins Sept 4th.
Join anytime.

Beth and Jay are a dynamic tag team as instructors, and I've really enjoyed the supportive environment they've assembled during this course. Their level of professional knowledge, their transparency, and the structure of the lessons have been immensely helpful every step of the way!

stop Waiting Until You're "Ready"

Waffling around hasn't put your work into anyone's hands. It hasn't made anyone notice you OR your great ideas.

Let's guide you from "I'm making something" to being an actual published author. Finally.

Does this sound like you?

01

You're drowning in ideas, but do not understand how to turn them into a written adventure.

02

You see others publishing supplements, running their games at conventions, or funding Kickstarters. You're frustrated by your own lack of progress.

03

Somehow you both don't know what to do but are also drowning in all the ways to do it. You're overwhelmed.

04

You've purchased content to help you learn how to "write" adventures, only to discover it's actually yet another resource teaching game masters how to keep their players engaged at the table...

05

You'd like to see your own name in print or sign your own NDA with a writing company! But...you know you need a portfolio first.

We're Offering Three Things

a Digital E-Course

With Over 40 ADHD-Friendly Video Lessons + Handouts & Templates to Guide You

a Support Group

Enjoy the Brand-New TTRPG University Discord Community With Private Course Chats

Mentorship

Input From A Team of Professional Game Designers, Editors, & Graphic Artists

The short videos are perfect. Beth and Jayden are SO helpful and encouraging, and having the weekly cohort calls are fantastic for advice and motivation.

Meet your coaches

Hello, We're Beth the Bard & Jayden King

Beth the Bard is a feminist game designer and best-selling author of She is the Ancient, A Genderbent Curse of Strahd guidebook. She applies more than four years (and 1,000 sessions!) of professional therapeutic GMing and well over a decade of experience as an educator, blogger, and graphic designer.

She collaborates closely with her partner, Jayden King, a proud Black game designer and business developer. He's a professional game master and writer that works with companies such as Modiphius and Wizards of the Coast. He applies over a decade of working as a corporate trainer for best business practices, team bonding, and organizational development coaching RPG designers.

Together, they focus their effort on providing opportunities for Women and BIPOC creators, which recently included their successful Kickstarter campaign for Daughter of Frankenstein, an Operatic Adventure for 5E Dungeons & Dragons.

The weekly calls have been incredibly useful, getting real-time input from you both has been invaluable to shaping my adventure and structuring my thoughts to make writing an adventure a real achievable thing.

FAQs

You've got questions? We have answers!

The course begins on September 4th, 2023 and ends on October 13th, 2023

Yes! All the content will be dripped throughout the six-week cohort and after we’re done, you’ll keep access to the full course to reference whenever you want!

Nope! We’ll take you from beginner to published. All you need is a will to succeed and the discipline to follow through.

It’s entirely possible to complete this quest while working a full-time job! We’ll cover some time management concepts in the first week of the course.

While 5E is often referenced for a broader range of relatability in the community, this course is not 5E-specific. We will actually discuss the styles of various TTRPG systems, and you’re encouraged to write in your preferred system.

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.

That’s totally okay, we’re recording the calls and uploading them to the classroom within the same day. You can watch them later!

That’s also entirely okay! You’ll still get access to everything else that this course offers and can work through the content in your own time. 

Excellent, we’re super excited to work with 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. Even though the content won’t be available until our start day, you can click on the course and visit the welcome page inside the classroom.

We meet once a week for an hour. It’s a group coaching call to review the week’s content and answer questions. All calls are recorded and added to the classroom same-day.

You definitely don’t need to. I have recommendations for premium resources but none of them are necessary.

Once you’ve completed the course content and created your adventure, send it to us at Admin@TTRPGUniversity.com, and we’ll email your certificate.

Honestly, without a deadline, it's difficult for me to force myself to write. Between work, social obligations, and games I'm running and playing in, I just always find reasons not to write. But this course provided that structure I needed to just get it done.

This page includes art or map work by Perplexing Ruins, Yorsey Hernandez, and Fernando Salvaterra. None of their files will be included in this course. You must source their content from them if you’d like your own copy for personal or commercial use. Their work will simply be shown in lesson samples.
