A revolutionary take on solo rpgs; it is not only well equipped for procedural generation and prompts and oracles, it also creates a well-supported system. It easily adapts to solo-play, coop with any number of players and guided-play. Very engaging and solid-built system, that couples a lot of PbtA lessons and modern designs into its own implementation - with such novel ideas and divergency that it has the potential to create a lineage of games just as Belonging Without Belonging, Legacy and Forged in the Dark did.
A must read for any designer. An example to every other designers that wants to move away from the current industry models.
The printed hardcover is gorgeous, does not bend at the spine. High-quality thick paper; high value even with the expensive delivery. The publisher has updated a second print with all the (minor) errata. This attention to the detail and community care is also an extra star on Ironsworn.
