Iron Dynasty: Way of the Ronin

Watermarked PDF

Iron Dynasty: Way of the Ronin is your definitive guide to oriental adventure in the mythical realms of Konoyo - lands wracked by war, abandoned by the gods, and assaulted by mysterious supernatural forces. Honor is all but lost. Will you seek to restore the Bright Empire, or revel in the opportunities this new age brings?

About Konoyo
The Known World is comprised of nine provinces, each with a unique personality all its own - from the twisted imperialism of Ikusa Kokoro, the hedonism of Hinote Shima, to the dark honor of Karasu Rokku.

Oriental Action! Savage Style

For the Player
Over eighty New Edges enable you to design the Hero you wish to play. Will you be the Onmyoji who seeks to master magic and the elemental forces? The Ganso who heralds in the new age of the machine with every gear he crafts? The Ninja who uses his stealth to slay unseen? Or the Warrior who carves out his destiny by developing his own fighting style? Choose one of the included Paths, or use them to inspire your boundless imagination.

For the Sensei
Details of the world are at your fingertips, with every locale on the Map delineated. Seven Campaign Frameworks with accompanying Story Arcs enable you to get a game going right away. Robust Adventure and Creature Generators, along with a complete section on People and Beasts found in Konoyo, leave you wanting for nothing.

This setting requires the Savage Worlds core rulebook for play.

I have been meaning to write a review for years. This is one of the best products for SW out there. Not just in the fantasy/steampunk genre. It is too bad that there hasn't been a SWADE conversion document for this. If you want everything you've asked [...]

I wanted more options for monks in an old school fantasy adventure for a con under Sagae Worlds. This was recommended to me. It is darn good. The new edges fit what I weanted and were very evocative, and the new arcane background was dead on to recreat [...]

Discovered this setting by accident and bought it because it was on sale. Within 2 hours I was back and buying guidebooks and kesshi tales. This is one of the most well-designed settings for Savage Worlds I've seen. It immediately jumped to the start [...]

I was recently discussing with my playing group about inspiration - be it stories for GMs or character inspiration for Players. We came to the conclusion that modern characters - being so close to us, are the easiest to create. Medieval Fantasy charact [...]

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.
