ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Starforged is a standalone follow-up to the Ironsworn tabletop roleplaying game. Experience with Ironsworn is not required to play. Starforged builds on Ironsworn's award-winning innovations (including its famed solo play!) to chart a path into an exciting new frontier. Check out the Kickstarter campaign page and official site for details.

The Deluxe Edition hardcover rulebook is a backer reward at the Deluxe Edition Hardcover and Deluxe Bundle pledge levels. This is the version of the Starforged core rulebook this Kickstarter is helping to create. It will be a beautiful, high-quality, offset printed, hardcover book of 350 or more pages. Dimensions will be 6x9 (about A5).

Previous Ironsworn releases were delivered in a print-on-demand format, with each book printed individually. That quality is good, but we're upleveling the format for Starforged! In an offset print run, books are printed in large quantities with much higher paper and color quality. The Starforged asset cards and reference guide included in the Deluxe Bundle (or as add-ons) will also be offset printed for premium quality.

We cannot guarantee that Deluxe Edition Starforged rulebooks and other materials will be available outside of this campaign, or that there will be another offset print in the future. The Starforged rulebook will likely be available as a print-on-demand edition, but at a higher cost and not before the Deluxe Edition is fully delivered to all backers.

Ready to play Starforged? You're in luck! As a thanks for your support, all backers gain immediate access to the digital Preview Edition.

This Preview Edition includes core chapters from the Starforged rulebook, along with printable asset cards and reference materials. It's everything you need to get started.

The Preview Edition rulebook is currently about 230 pages, has a clean, sharp design, is packed with amazing artwork, and is fully bookmarked and hyperlinked. Content will be expanded throughout development, leading up to the release of the complete game.

Once you’ve pledged for Starforged, you can jump to manage your pledge for a link to the Preview Edition files.

Thanks to the support of backers, an array of stretch goals were unlocked during the Starforged Kickstarter. These stretch goals will be delivered at no extra cost for all backers (including those making late pledges).

  • Custom Roll20 Sheet: A complete digital platform for your Ironsworn character, moves, oracles, and more. Powered by Roll20, the most popular virtual tabletop.
  • Faction Oracles: The core rulebook will include a set of oracles to generate the goals and characteristics for factions in the Forge.
  • More Art: Additional art for the core rulebook.
  • Web-Based Oracle Dashboard: A web-based tool with comprehensive access to all the oracle tables included in Starforged. You'll generate people, creatures, settlements, planets, and more with only a click or two.
  • Starship Schematic: A two-page illustration of a typical Forge starship, included in the core rulebook.
  • Asset Boost: 10 additional character assets in the digital and printed asset decks.

Sundered Isles

Backers get immediate access to the PDF Preview Edition, which is fully playable and will be expanded with updates and new content as development continues. We expect the complete game to be available as a digital download by March 2022, at which point production will begin on the physical products.

Due to current global issues and uncertainties with manufacturing and shipping, it is difficult to nail down the timeframe for production and delivery of the physical rewards. We expect that all Starforged rewards (with the exception of the Sundered Isles supplement) will be fully delivered sometime between March 2022 and July 2022.
