24 Hour RPG

1KM1KT is the official mirror site for 24HourRPG.com. Project participants may submit their work for online publication and view archived 24 Hour RPG submissions.

The 24 hour RPG Project is basically the budding and professional game designer’s equivalent of a triathalon- You put your body, mind and spirit through some major punishment in a race against time, in this case to develop a full, working, playable role-playing game within a mere 24 hours with other peers. Like a triathalon, there’s no “award” for winning; Rather the award is in itself to participate, test yourself, overcome the challenge at hand at your own pace and skill level, and share in the brief glory with your peers.

The Bodhisattva’s Smile

At the ends of the known world, hidden in a sacred cave, there lie a group of ancient semi-divine beings who have remained in the physical plane to assist those who have yet to achieve divine peace. This game tells the stories of the wanderers who seek nirvana, and the enigmatic guides who determine if they are worthy.

Daring Adventures

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

Daring Adventures offers quick, no-prep superhero roleplaying, roughly in the style of golden age comics. It’s for the 2013 24 Hour RPG contest, so it’s in pocketmod form and uses no numbers. You’ll need a deck of cards and some tokens to play, plus good eyes and enough patience to read through once before play; the organization was pretty much dictated by the space constraints, so it’s not written to my usual standard of clarity.
