Forge Horizons


Want to play Ironsworn Starforged but don't want to define the world before you play? Want to hop right into the action every session? Do you want additional oracles for filling out your version of the Forge with machines, supernatural horrors, and precursor remains?

Forge Horizons is a series of oracles and optional rules for the Ironsworn Starforged RPG that add details and some streamlined rules for episodic play. This is a fan supplement, so you’ll need a copy of Starforged to play.  Forge Horizons adds three tools for you to detail and enhance your stories in the Forge.

Episodic adventures are alternative rules for starting the game. They get your character into the action quickly and allow you to discover regions of the Forge and it’s truths through play. Instead of doing all the world-building up front, you take your character and put them in the middle of an adventure already in progress. Each session is broken down into bite-sized moments where you’ll generate a random location, inhabitants, and an action scene that will propel the story forward. This will give your Starforged game a more episodic feel, with larger threats and themes evolving from play over time. You can also use this system to set up a situation for a one-shot with guided or co-operative play.

Ecumenopolis planets and oracles let you generate planets covered by settlements, city infrastructure, and millions of inhabitants. This planet type is for versions of the Forge that are more populous if you want your game to more closely resemble stories like Star Wars, Firefly, or Foundation.

Oracles for machines, supernatural horrors, and precursors let you add further challenges and exciting developments to your Starforged game. Machine oracles let you add random automatons, bot companions, or even nanomachine swarms. Oracles for supernatural threats give you details for all the horrors that may exist in the dark shadows of the Forge. Finally, precursor tables help you imagine the remains of these ancient aliens, and may even lead you to some of the last living precursors in the Forge. 

This work is based on Ironsworn Starforged created by Shawn Tomkin.

You have single page on itch, but only double here, any reason why?

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.
