A one in a million chance at a Game Jam:

This game jam is a call for anyone into roleplaying and that enjoys the writings of the late Sir Terry Pratchett. 9 months ago this brainchild of mine, the TTRPG rule system called A one in a million chance at adventure, was conceived and it has now come to the point in time where things need to grow, outside of the proverbial womb. According to me the only way it can grow in any meaningful way is for all of you to create the game with me! So if you have played the game, or maybe just read it, and you feel like you have a great (or even not so great) idea about an adventure, a cool rule, a cool random table, a cool mechanic that would fit both the game and/or the world of Discworld, this game jam is for you! A chance to share your creations and maybe even find some partners in unlicenced crime to develop game artefacts with in the future!

A one in a million chance at a game jam!

Looking forward to your contributions!

Since I posted here last time I have released a new supplement for the Discworld roleplaying game named A one in a million chance at adventure, the supplement is called The A-M Professions and is a set of character creation guides to be used with the core rules when creating characters. It is meant to help and guide you as a player if you are new to the system. The character builds are very stereotypical and meant to help us all wrap our heads around various ways one can use the underlying system to create interesting characters.

The core game is a tabletop roleplaying game, it is fairly rules-light and with a heavy focus on storytelling. Players play from an actor stance and the player who takes the role of The Auditor (other systems call this the game master) is following a set of principles and guidelines to help the table create interesting stories in line with the Discworld setting.

There are two other supplements by me: Optional Auditing Rules and the creation of belief.
The optional auditing rules expand on the rules and tools available to the Auditor, and the Creation of Belief expands on the rules for how magic works in the system.

In addition to the two supplements above, there is also two made by other creators: a one in a million, or mostly d20, chance at adventure and other miscellaneous info by Emerus_Snow and The Author Hack by dabuz.

Finally, after almost 1,5 years in development, the introductory adventure for the system "A one in a million chance at adventure" is finished!

One of the most bizarre episodes in the annals of Morporkian Crime! Revelry… Violence… Mystery! Break the case open, like a peeled nut! "The characteristic Morporkian rain was drizzling down, the smell from the Ankh felt familiar*. You found yourself in a bit of a pickle, your monetary luck had run out. The collector had come collecting, the tax officer was taxing and you’d lost the latest bet. You really hated stooping so low, but you found yourself scrounging through the periodicals for possible work opportunities. At this point, anything that could put a dollar in your pocket had to be considered an offer you couldn’t refuse."

The murder of Dommick Kolchak is a murder mystery adventure suitable for your first play session of A one in a million chance at adventure, a Discworld tribute TTRPG made by Jocher Symbolic Systems in 2020. It is the adventure that was used for internal testing during the development of the core ruleset and it has as such been tested thoroughly and should probably give you a nice and varied experience even after a few playthroughs.
