Quick Preview



Ironsworn is a tabletop RPG of perilous quests for solo, co-op and guided play.

It is currently in the final phases of development. This preview version is a complete game, ready to play, pending only minor fixes for typos or other errors. The final release will be offered as a free PDF and in print.


In the Ironsworn tabletop RPG, you are a hero sworn to complete perilous quests in the Ironlands, a dark fantasy setting. Explore untracked wilds. Form bonds with isolated communities. Fight desperate battles. Swear vows and see them fulfilled – no matter the cost.

Ironsworn supports three modes of play:

  • Guided: One or more players take the role of their characters, the protagonists in your story, while a gamemaster (GM) moderates the gaming session. 

  • Cooperative (Co-Op): You and one or more friends play together to overcome challenges and complete quests as your characters. A GM is not required. The Ironsworn game system will help you resolve challenges and decide what happens next.

  • Solo: As with cooperative play, no GM is necessary. You portray a lone heroic character in a world fraught with danger. Good luck!


  • Quest-driven mechanics and fast, flexible character creation.

  • Story hooks and creative prompts to eliminate game prep and push your adventures forward—with or without a GM.

  • A setting guide for the Ironlands, a rugged and treacherous peninsula at the edge of the known world.

  • Inspiring tools to customize your setting and fine-tune your game experience.

  • Extensive advice, examples and options for exploring the story of your characters and their fateful vows.

Thanks, Maria! Printed copies will be available here once I've finalized the PDF and completed the proofing process (a month or so?).

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
