Into the Bronze is a RPG of sword, sorcery and sandals in Mesopotamia from the Bronze era.

The plains between the Tigris and Ephrates rivers hide silent, gloomy valleys where demons and lesser gods devise their evil plans. Defy the gods of Sumeria, behold the beginning of civilization.

Created as a Into the Odd hack, ItB drinks from the same source as the old school games.

  • 36 available backgrounds, 6 of which have access to a modular magic system by magical intonations. 
  • Several tables for creating scenarios and hexagons of your own bronze lands. 
  • A bestiary with its own creatures for players' immersion. 
  • A beautiful layout 
  • Awesome public domain images
  • Character sheets in A4 and Letter paper size for free here: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/319708/Into-the-Bronze-Character-Sheets

Hmmmm...

From the looks of things it appears the game is an orphan as the publisher has been incommunicado for a year.

Is there further guidance somewhere for the HP costs for using intonations? A few more examples on what things might cost would be very helpful.

Do you need Into The Odd OR is this standalone?

This game is awesome and gorgeous. Glad to see you have POD up and running! I already bought the PDF, but I'll be picking up the physical copy as well.

A question. The text at the beginning says that characters will be bounty hunters, but then never mentions it again. Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Totally. Right now I'm writing SouthHex, a quaterly magazine to be the official support for Into the Bronze and other indie games! Glad you asked!

Awesome!!!

So if SouthHex is a quarterly magazine you started writing nearly a year ago we should have AT LEAST three if not four issues by now, right? So how come NOTHING comes up when I google "SouthHex"?

Hi, really cool game. I have two questions:
1. Does armor reduce damage for every hit or is it number of points for the whole combat?
2. The book says that conditions are described in annex 1. I can't find this annex.

Guilherme G September 16, 2020 1:15 pm UTC

Hi, Michal! Answering your questions!

1. every hit, yeap!
2. The annex 1 goes with the character sheet file! Page 2! :)

So I purchased the PDF to get a discount on the physical and still no physical available??

Hi, Daniel. Because of the pandemics, things are slower on drivethrurpg print-on-demand services. We already ordered the proof and probably in some days (I hope so!) the physical book will be avaliable. I ask your pardon for this late, but somethings are out of my control, unfortunately. You'll have your discount account, don't worry.

I saw the 40% discount on twitter and had a question about that.

If the PDF copy is $12, the physical copy is $18 and the physical + pdf is $20, then the 40% discount on physical for purchasing the pdf early means that physical + pdf will cost $22.80?

I must be doing the math wrong right? Shouldn't there be a discount (or at the very least break even) for ordering early?
Customer avatar
Guilherme G July 09, 2020 12:17 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
I'm the one terrible at math, haha. Sorry about that. The idea is that the physical copies will cost only U$8 for those that buy the pdf until July 12th (Sunday). In that way, the first 12 dollars of the pdf plus the 8 dollars of the physycal will result in 20 dollars total. :)

Sorry, I totally suck at math! LOL! And don't worry, you'll have your discount coupon!

I haven't purchased yet, but I wanted to point out that on page 8, it says "Tigris and Euphrate" instead of the correct Tigris and Euphrates. I'd be happy to do some proofreading if you like. I used to do a lot of translation work. Either way, looking forward to the final product!

Thank you, Stephania! I'm already working on an updated file! I'll upload it Monday morning!
Customer avatar
Joe M September 08, 2021 7:51 pm UTC
So were these translational issues ironed out?

I ask because, to be upfront, I don't want to pay any more for rules than necessary. At the same time I prefer reading from paper so I am inclined to purchase the booklet. However, when I read the sample pages I am greeted by unusual assertions such as those on the 8th page where the author appears to claim the struggle between the (presumably early) Sumerian city states was fought mainly by sailors.

But my actual point is, has the translation been polished at all? If not when will the pdf be updated? Like I really don't want to write all over the well-designed pages to explain to myself what a rule means. And it looks like other folks had trouble grasping some of the concepts too.

This game looks rad, but, just curious... why "original" (only) electronic/printing disabled? I'm personally not a fan of reading RPGs off of screens.

Too bad, as this looked interesting. But as someone who needs to be able to print out the files in a format that makes them usable for me, no printing is a non-starter.

Hi, Robert and Sean. Earlier today Paolo on twitter told me about the accessibility matter. I haven't thought about it and I apologise for it. When I locked this option of printing I was thinking in preserving the analog vs digital experience of the product. But accessibility is much more important than all this. I've just updated the file now and you can print and have fun with it.

Again, I ask you pardon. My bad.

This is fab! Downloaded, looked through and already rolled up an adventure for it. I would mention that there are a couple of spelling mistakes I think and also I would just mention that items have 3 "Uses". This is only clear if you use the official character sheets :)

"Strength" is misspelt as "Strenght" on page 25.

This seems interesting. Id like to see a page or two of preview to check out the style of the book, if thats possible. A little of the classes... a little of the magic... a bit of the hex or background system would be awesome. Although it says OSR, the blurb mentions 5E backgroungs. Mostly wanting to make sure Im on the same page the author is on.

Thanks in advance for your response.

Format
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.
