Adventure starters for Ironsworn with universal compatibility instructions

By integrating the design philosophy of Dungeon World campaign fronts and the elegant mechanics of Ironsworn for quests and expeditions, the Quest Fronts magazine takes the best of both systems to offer you adventure starters that can be played in the role-playing game of your preference. Whether you are a solo player or a game master, these fronts will inspire your imagination to play and tell compelling stories in a grim, low fantasy world.

Quest Fronts comes with a default setting if you wish to take these adventures as a basis to build your world. Additionally, it includes universal instructions from the Ironsworn system reference document to play these quests in any role-playing game system.

In the 1st issue of the Quest Fronts magazine...

  • Avert a political conflict by protecting a nobleman from deserters of a warband.
  • Hunt a creature that emerged from the depths of a mining site.
  • Prevent a coronation held by the cultists to rule a village.
  • Discover the reason dreams are haunted by visions of ancient structures.
  • Take part in the weekly hunt of a community that lives in the bowels of gigantic bones.
  • Seize the power hidden within a mysterious mountain before invaders take the nearby settlement.
  • Return a sacred relic to a village before its disappearance triggers a major conflict in the region.

Pay what you want to support

What others are saying

"There are no weak points in this magazine. Art, layout, writing, it’s all things you would expect from some of the bigger companies but that is really remarkable given that they’re coming from the first effort of a team of independent contributors." (Pod of Plunders review)

"I am exhilarated by this concept. It's just so genius. I get instantly inspired and am itching to play. Defining the threat and threat process is one of my favorite things about this". (Patreon supporter)

"I think this might really help newbies get started a lot more quickly. It would allow them to focus on just creating a character and getting started. I know the worldbuilding is a stumbling block for some people." (Ironsworn Facebook member)

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.
