The League of Extraordinary Foundry VTT Developers is celebrating one year since Foundry Virtual Tabletop was released (May 22) and the League’s own first anniversary (July 13) by hosting a Package Jam between those dates!

Our first package jam was wildly successful, and it introduced packages you know and love like:

And many more… Now that we’ve grown and Foundry has grown, naturally that means even more awesome will come around this time right?

    • All of the up-to-date details about the Jam will be posted on the jam page and all entries should be submitted there.

Some emotional Stuff

The League’s first package jam’s announcement started with this triumphant declaration:

The League of Extraordinary Foundry Developers Discord just reached a 100+ members.

Our community has grown to over 2,000 strong in the eight months since then. We’ve witnessed a plethora of amazing ideas by motivated people from all over the globe come to market in that time.

I (Calego) only joined the League because of the first Package Jam and I run the place now. I know I speak for my fellow Ring Masters when I say “Thank you for your support, it has been an amazing journey, and I look forward to what new wonders the future holds.”

If you have any inkling of a desire to make your cool ideas a reality on the Foundry VTT platform, join us and together we will rule the galaxy build amazing things. Start with this jam and you might win something cool to boot.
