All of Ironsmith Consolidated!

All of the Ironsmith supplement have been consolidated into a single book that is the same 6 x 9 size of the original Ironsworn books.  Both the PDF and POD are Pay What You Want. If you already donated through the previous Ironsmith releases, please don't pay me again! Take the PDF for free and at cost for the POD. The production cost should be around $10.50 for the POD, so anything you give above that amount gets split between DriveThruRPG and myself. I appreciate any donations above $10.50.  Thank you!

This book includes the following supplements which have been edited more thoroughly, revised, and in some cases expanded:

  • New Assets
  • Corruptions
  • The Darkness Within
  • Vows and Milestones
  • Monster Hunting
  • New Foes
  • New Sites
  • Expanded Oracles
Also included in the digital version are Print N' Play versions of all the asset cards (poker-sized), site cards (tarot-sized), the Vow Creation Sheet, and the Darkness Within Character Sheet.

Physical Cards Are Here!

While the hardcover book product does not include the physical cards, you can get the Assets Physical Cards here and the Sites Physical Cards here.

Using Ironsmith for Other RPGs

First of all, if you're not playing Shawn Tomkin's Ironsworn game, what are you waiting for?!  It's a great game that has all the drivers you need to make excellen fantasy stories with just the right amount of grit.  Plus, Shawn graciously gives it away for free right here on DriveThru!  I also highly recommend Shawn's Ironsworn: Delve supplement.

As great as Ironsworn is, you could also use the rules in this supplement within almost any fantasy RPG as inspiration for cool character concepts, adventure seeds, new monsters, or new locations.  You can also use the random tables for solo play with your favorite solo engine.

Hi,
First : impressive work around Ironsworn I particularly like the Darkness Within chapter. Now I have a question : do you plan to make a character sheet with Darkness Within adapted to Starforged or do you think it more reasonnable for me to managed all that in an asset like card ?
(out of curiosity which software do you use to make that?)

Many thanks again for all your work,
David.

David, Thank you for checking out my work! I do have some very loose plans to start a "Starsmith" series, but IF (big if, unfortunately) I am able to work on that project, it won't be for a few more months. I've also been away for awhile from the Starforged community, and I'm not sure that Shawn has put out the licensing for Starforged yet. Once he gets the core book shipped and the licensing agreements nailed down for third party products, I hope to translate what I can from my Ironsmith stuff to Starsmith. In the meantime, I think you could use the Darkness Within as it is inside Starforged without any trouble. You'll just need a darkness track which you can either tack onto the bottom of your character sheet or put on a new asset card. I use GIMP for making the asset cards, and it's free to use. Shoot me an email if you'd like the GIMP asset card template I created, and I can send it your way. Hope that helps!

It would be nice to invert the Asset/Other card face art if printing both sides at home. Mainly for ink saving/time. This is easily done if you have Photoshop and Acrobat Pro but I'm not sure how easy it is if you don't. I printed on card stock after inverting and replacing original face pages with inverted copy. I can surely send the file Eric if you want it.

Sorry about that! I had inverted all the asset cards for my Flavor Packs but forgot the base assets for Ironsmith. Check your library for this and you should a new PDF that ends with Less Ink which has the inverted backs for easier printing. Thanks for spotting that!

Hi Eric, I'm really enjoying what you put together here. It's all great, but I especially like the "Monster Hunting" and the "Expanded Oracles" chapters. Don't know if you're looking for any suggestions, but I would LOVE to have a bestiary type book for Ironsworn. Three hundred or so pages of new monsters, compiled monsters, classic fantasy monsters... just loads of monster goodness!

Also, I appreciate that you matched the size of the original IS products, and that you offered a hardcover option. It's very unlikely that I would have purchased a physical copy in paperback.

Thanks!

Thank you for the kind words! Right now I'm working on expanding my Flavor Packs into book form for the next physical book. Each Flavor Pack has 20 foes in it, and it's looking like the Volume 1 of Flavor Pack books will either have 4 or 5 separate mythologies giving you 80-100 foes. After that, I've had several requests for new Flavor Packs which would add to the foe options as well. I don't see a full bestiary on the horizon for me just yet, but hopefully the Flavor Packs can partially scratch that itch for you with monsters and such from many different mythologies around the world. Just updated the Norse one today, so you can grab it and the Japanese mythology Flavor Packs for 40+ new foes right now!

"While the hardcover book product does not include the physical cards, you can get the Assets Physical Cards here and the Sites Physical Cards here."

So do those two card sets cover everything in the book? It sounds like a hardcover is coming out for this book soon, will the physical cards match the new book?

Yes, the two card sets are already updated. Just awaiting my final proof to open up the POD for this. I found another typo in a table that I couldn’t live with! Physical book should be ready in a week or two.

Sorry to bug you about this Eric, but should we expect the POD to be available any day now?

You’re not bugging me at all! Yes, it should be any day as I got the email that the (hopefully) final proof shipped on Friday. My guess is today or tomorrow. Finger crossed!

Is there a sort of changelog? I already own all of the supplements, separately, and I integrated them into a printed compendium. Just curious what I might be missing out on.

There's not a changelog currently, but I'll see if I can whip one up. In general, it's mostly typo fixes, flipping the placement of a few oracle entries to make it fit better on a 6x9 page, removing art to keep page count down and make it easier on home printers, stuff like that.

Just double checked, and I did update three things:
1) ALL of the assets got some word tweaks, but nothing major, just clarity.
2) The Evidence of Corruption table entries got doubled.
3) The Items of Narrative Significance table entries in the Mystery Vows section got doubled.

I haven't incorporated those changes into the original PDFs yet as I may end up taking them down now that the whole book is done. Would you prefer to still have the individual 8.5 x 11 sized PDFs available?
Customer avatar
Christof B May 10, 2021 10:06 pm UTC
Thanks for the response! No, I don't have a need for keeping them available. I was just curious what had changed because I have a printed copy. I integrated all of your Ironsmith material into a Compendium together with Ironsworn and Delve (~760 pages in total). I won't be printing it again to update it, so I just was wondering what I might be missing if I didn't update.

Thanks again!

Preview? POD coming?

I’ll have to check how the preview works since it’s got multiple PDF files. I’ll investigate, but there’s nothing new here. It’s just converted to 6x9 format.

The POD should be ready in a couple weeks as I found some drift on the cover that I need to fix. Target date for release is around May 18 depending on shipping time for the final proof to get to me. Thanks!

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.
