Mountain Home, a Forged in the Dark game of dwarven settlement-building


Mountain Home is a Forged in the Dark roleplaying game where the players take on the role of a group of founding dwarves setting out to create a new settlement. Dig deep, engage in politics with your neighbors, and secure your future in a strange new land.

Mountain Home games take place over the tenuous decades of a settlement's early existence in a new and remarkable land. The game cycles through both fast-paced expeditions where the characters set out to take control of fate and the steady dig downward as the settlement expands.

Within you'll find:

  • Seven complete playbooks for player-controlled dwarves
  • Four settlement goals that give your dwarves a reason to make their new mountain home
  • All the rules and printouts necessary for your group to engage in daring expeditions, build your settlement, and discover your new mountain home's fate
  • Procedures for group-driven worldbuilding to make every game your own

Mountain Home is a laid-out, artless, fully functional game. It has an index, working bookmarks, and hyperlinks for navigation. It is a work in progress. Buying the game now ensures you get all future digital versions of the game released right here. As I polish Mountain Home further, I'm going to be increasing the price accordingly. I've released it at a lower price today so I can more easily get feedback and eventually pay for things I can't do myself, like fill the book with art.

Digital play sheets, complete with a built-in character creation tutorial are available

The daily deal must have expired before/after you got to the link. Send me a DM on twitter @TheTurtleHat and I'll figure out how to get you a discount link

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.
