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.
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.
You're drowning in ideas, but do not understand how to turn them into a written adventure.
You see others publishing supplements, running their games at conventions, or funding Kickstarters. You're frustrated by your own lack of progress.
Somehow you both don't know what to do but are also drowning in all the ways to do it. You're overwhelmed.
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...
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.
With Over 40 ADHD-Friendly Video Lessons + Handouts & Templates to Guide You
Enjoy the Brand-New TTRPG University Discord Community With Private Course Chats
Input From A Team of Professional Game Designers, Editors, & Graphic Artists
Even if you're new to TTRPG writing, we can take you from a confused beginner to a published creator. Plus, a portfolio to show for it.
There are bonuses for joining the live cohort, aside from all the great content of the course. Bonuses include LIVE Q&A calls, a full adventure template library, and a project planner for scoping your roadmap!
To help guide you through the course content, answer questions, and assist in a group setting.
Go beyond the course templates with adventure templates for Affinity & Canva!
This planner & dashboard is compatible with Google Sheets and will guide you through this journey.
The schedule is subject to a minor change if it becomes necessary.
Calls are meant for Q&A and support; they are not lessons. They take place at 5 pm Pacific for an hour.
All live calls are recorded for replay in the classroom, so if you can't make the time, you're totally fine!

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.
Enrollment begins before the course goes live. The cart will be open for just a few days.
Once you grab your spot, you’ll get an email with information about how to create your TTRPG University course account.
While the course isn’t live yet, you can create your classroom account and visit the welcome page for a hello from Beth!
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.
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.
In Six Weeks, You'll Finally Be a Published TTRPG Author
