AN INTRODUCTION TO 2D20 WORLD BUILDERS

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 2d20 World Builders guidelines, design your content using the System Reference Document, format it using the official templates and upload it to DriveThruRPG!

Creators get 50% of sales, DriveThruRPG takes a 30% platform fee, and Modiphius 20%. In return, Modiphius offers a whole suite of support for you including free seminars, layout templates, free art packs and promotion to our huge mailing list. Modiphius will be investing all of our 20% share of the revenues in marketing support and free art packs for all creators to use in their content. Any 2d20 system rules will become usable by anyone else in the program. Any IP you create is yours and does not become part of the program. You're free to develop it elsewhere with another rules system or make a movie or graphic novel etc If you're creating content to a professional level you can join our Commercial License program below, where you only pay 10% on core book sales, and 5% on supplements.

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 familiarised yourself with the Content Guidelines, you can download the creator resources which include templates and artwork that meet our 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 2D20 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. The content guidelines are different to the standard ones. You can find the 2d20 Licensed World Builders Content Guidelines and creator resources below. We’ve made a free art pack available for all creators to use to illustrate your work.

 

 

INCENTIVE PROGRAM

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 owners of the submission 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.

 

GET NOTICED

Modiphius will also be promoting the best creations each month in the 2d20 newsletter and the main Modiphius newsletter, in our social media and 2d20 World Builders blog, so you could be getting in front of hundreds of thousands of potential fans and customers!

 

PUBLISHING SUPPORT

If you need help and advice, we’ll be running some 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.
