Suggested Price $4.00

Pick up the full game available now!

You might have come for justice, you might have come for glory. Maybe you want revenge or maybe you just have nowhere else to go, but now you’re here, at home in the woods, fighting an endless war against the barons, the sheriff, and the king.

What Is Sherwood?

Set in a fantastical version of 13th Century England, Sherwood is a stand-alone Quickstart RPG of a continuing struggle against unjust rulers, predatory aristocrats, and parasitic royal officials. If you enjoy it, keep your eyes peeled for the full game, with an additional adventure, more character options, and rules for sorcery and divination.


  • Simple, easy-to-navigate character creation inspired by games such as Enoch’s Wake and Traveller
  • Designed for a Game Master and 1-6 players
  • Quick core rules driven by a simple, universal 2d6 mechanic
  • Sample quick-run adventure
  • Three ready-to-run adventures for your band of outlaws
  • A 25-page quickstart PDF

How does this differ from "A Game of Outlaws & Arcana"? thanks!

This is the free/PWYW Quickstart for that game. It uses the same rules but has fewer lifepath options, no magic mechanics, and only a part of the GM section. It also doesn't have the cover and interior design that Eric Swanson added to the full game.

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.
