Modiphius Entertainment 2d20 World Builders Program
Modiphius Entertainment announces the release of the 2d20 World Builders Community Content Program on DriveThruRPG, following its unveiling last year.
It’s time to get your creative caps on! The Modiphius Entertainment 2d20 World Builders Program allows creators from all over the world to design their own roleplaying games, supplements, characters, and more using their popular 2d20 system. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to get your wildest creations in front of an enthusiastic community of players, and it’s all incredibly easy. Simply read the Modiphius 2d20 World Builders guidelines, design your content using the System Reference Document, format it using the official templates and upload it to DriveThruRPG.
Working with DriveThruRPG and the 2d20 World Builders Program, creators get 50% of sales. Any 2d20 system rules will become usable by anyone else in the program, however, you the creator will own the IP you create.
Guide for creating content
Creators should read the 2d20 World Builders Content Guidelines for clarification on the type of content Modiphius will accept. Once you have familiarized yourself with the Content Guidelines, you can download the creator resources here, which include templates and artwork that meet the specifications. It is also essential you use the System Reference Document. The SRD is a toolkit that explains all of the core mechanics of the 2d20 system, enabling you to create exciting experiences around Modiphius’ cinematic, high-action and dramatic ruleset.
After you have created your content, head to your account page and look in the “My Content” section. Here you can use the “Add new title” link after you agree to the Community Content Agreement. Make sure you click World Builders when uploading your document in the select program section.
Once your content is published, you can find it in the 2d20 World Builders section. You’ll be able to check your sales history, view reviews, and check on your royalties using your Account page on DriveThruRPG. The “My Money” section of your account page will allow you to withdraw royalties via PayPal.
Guide for creating content for Achtung! Cthulhu
In addition to the standard 2d20 World Builder program, Modiphius is also offering creators the chance to create content for our beloved Achtung! Cthulhu IP. These content guidelines are different from the standard ones. You can find the 2d20 Licensed World Builders Content Guidelines here and the creator resources here. We’ve made a free art pack available for all creators to use to illustrate your work, which you can download here.
Modiphius has kindly agreed to match the first $100 in royalties to the first five people that list a piece of content that is at least 10,000 words in length. Content from both programs is eligible. Furthermore, they will also match the first $500 in royalties for the submission owners, which they think is the most impressive piece of content available by June 1st. All submissions are eligible and will be decided on by the Modiphius team on July 1st based on all content available by midnight PST, May 31st.
Modiphius will also be promoting the best creations each month in the 2d20 newsletter alongside the main Modiphius newsletter, in our social media, and in the 2d20 World Builders blog, so you could be getting in front of hundreds of thousands of potential fans and customers!
If you need help and advice, we’ll be running regular seminars for World Builders to give you advice on creating for 2d20, publishing your own content, how to promote your work and more. Sign up for the 2d20 World Builders newsletter here to find out more.
