Starsmith: Expanded Oracles

Suggested Price $5.00

More Options for Ironsworn: Starforged Oracles!

This digital supplement (POD on the way soon) adds two additional tables for nearly every table in the Ironsworn: Starforged core rulebook effectively tripling your options.  Where normally you would roll your challenge (2d10) to find oracle results, you now roll your action die (1d6) as well.  The action die results tell you which table to look at as follows:

  • 1-2: Use the original Ironsworn: Starforged oracle table
  • 3-4: Use the first oracle table in the Starsmith supplement
  • 5-6: Use the second oracle table in the Starsmith supplement
The expanded oracles in Starsmith include the original oracles thanks to Shawn Tomkin's generous licensing.  Thanks, Shawn!  The categories of oracles are:
  • Campaign Starters
  • Core - Action, Theme, Descriptor, Focus
  • Characters
  • Creatures
  • Derelicts
  • Districts
  • Factions
  • Miscellaneous
  • Planets
  • Settlements
  • Space Encounters
  • Starships
  • Vaults
The only oracles not tripled are:
  • Derelict Zones - I created corresponding Mega-City Districts giving you options in the same vein as Derelicts but now in a mega-city.
  • Location Themes - I created new themes that doubled the options rather than extending the existing ones.
In additon to the expanded oracles, I've included three oracles ported from Ironsmith:
  • Random NPC Conversation: A table of random topics for NPCs to discuss including everything from family history to specific job skills to gossip about why the leadership should change.  While these topics could lead to significant plot ideas, they are mainly designed to help a GM or player flesh out an NPC.
  • Plot Knowledge an NPC or Datastream Can Give: These are two d100 tables that you can use to find out what specific plot information an NPC has.  The first table is the type of information they have (the location of, the identity of, the loss of authority of, etc.) and the second table is the topic of that information (an enemy spy, the current setting, a traitor, etc.)  Roll once on each table to build interesting plot connections on the fly!
  • Items of Narrative Significance: These tables provide 300 options for random items that can act as clues or story drivers.  Get a random item and think how it fits into the plot or roll on the Story Clue table and then roll a random item to see how that clue manifested.

Using the Expanded Oracles for Other RPGs

First of all, if you're not playing Shawn Tomkin's Ironsworn: Starforged game, what are you waiting for?!  It's a great game that has all the drivers you need to make excellent sci-fi stories with just the right amount of grit.  Not only is the final Kickstarter version available right now digitally, but the physical version will be on sale soon as well.

As great as Starforged is, you could also use these oracles for almost any other gritty, sci-fi system or setting.  Check out the above list of oracles included in this supplement.  You can use those in almost any game!  So have at it!

Do you have any plans to sell these in a format that can be imported into Roll20 or Stargazer? My adventures are now entirely run on Stargazer and it would be great to see your work incorporated.

Thank you for the review! I'll see if I can reply to it to say you meant Ironsmith instead of Ironsworn because yes, we want to make sure Shawn gets full credit for his awesome game!

Also, thank you for suggesting the expanded Ask the Oracle! I completely forgot about that. I'll get that incorporated into this weekend's update.

As for other formats, I'm working on converting everything to Markdown (for Obsidian users) and JSON (for just about everything else). With the JSON file, you'll be able to import it directly into Stargazer as custom oracles I think, but I may have to go back and add UUIDs to every oracle. However, the expanded oracles won't be nicely sorted into categories on Stargazer because they'll all be in the Custom category. Rsek and I talked briefly on the Discord about incorporating the expanded oracles into official Datasworn so that all apps that draw on it would have them, but we settled on the fact that since they're not official Starforged, they really don't...See more

I would be interested in play testing the files. Do you maybe have a git-repository where they can be found at?

I have a git-repository with my Starforged starter vault meant to work with the Inline Scripts plugin, but I don't have the expanded oracles incorporated into it yet. It currently only has all the JavaScript stuff necessary to go with the Inline Scripts. I'm just finishing up the JSON file of the expanded oracles today, so I should be able to import the oracles directly into Obsidian soon. It depends on if I need to fix any of the JavaScript after the import, so it may be available by next weekend (Dec 10, 2022)? I'll post on the Ironsworn Discord in the Obsidian channel and on the Ironsworn Reddit when the Markdown files are ready.

Sounds awesome :)!

I would also be interested in the json file, if you'd be willing to make it accessible somewhere. Generating markdown files, for use with the Obsidian inline-scripts list roll functionality, from the json oracles should be easy enough (a few lines of Python should do the trick). I would of course be happy to share the generated markdown files if there is interest.

Just finished getting everything cleaned up and posted. Both the Markdown files and the JSON file are available on git, but I'm not allowed to post a link to an outside website on DriveThru. Search for ericbright2002/Forged_in_Obsidian and that should get you there. Let me know if you need anything else! Now for the POD file...

Awesome thanks :)! Already imported the md files into my vault. Everything works out of the box, including the inline scripts you made. Great work :)!

A minor disappointment was not seeing the Expanded Ask the Oracle system to add Yes But and No But as possible outcomes as I thought it was genius.

I inadvertently credited you with creating Ironsworn instead of Ironsmith but the system will not let me edit my review.

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.
