Jeff Rients has started the Worldwide Adventure Writing Month project (WoAdWriMo for short). With NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) as a sort of template, Jeff aims to increase the pool of quality adventures available to GMs everywhere.

There’s a paradox at work in the RPG industry when it comes to published scenarios: Most RPG publishers don’t see very good returns on published them, but many GMs get a lot of mileage out of them (myself included). WoAdWriMo aims to change that.

This is exactly the kind of badass, community-minded project that I can really get behind, so I offered Jeff my support via TT. This whole thing came together very quickly, and it’s worth breaking down what resources are where and so forth.

• The Worldwide Adventure Writing Month blog is WoAdWriMo headquarters, and the home of news and other developments in the project. Jeff Rients is the WoAdWriMo Coordinator — although he’s modest about it, this is his baby.

• TT hosts the official Worldwide Adventure Writing Month forum, the hub for all project-related discussion, encouragement and ideas.

• TT will host completed WoAdWriMo adventures for download. There’ll be a specific section for that on this site, but it’s not there yet. You can find the (currently empty) download hub here: WoAdWriMo Adventure Downloads.

This whole project got its start as a post on Jeff’s blog, and it’s taken off from there. I’m very excited about this, as you can probably tell.

WoAdWriMo is focused on offering a fun challenge to the GMing community, and on improving the resources available to this community as a whole. That rocks on toast in so many ways, and I’m thrilled to be able to play a part.
