- Learn2Play: IronswornOff The Shelf Games, El Cajon, CA
The snows of the Ragged Coast are cruel and never-ending but we swore a vow on iron to help the people of Varða make it through the winter. With little more than hard-won blades and prayers to the lost gods we set off from home, trekking along the cliffs and taking shelter wherever we could. But now, as the storms rage outside our shelter, it's about to get much, much worse...
Come learn to play Ironsworn, a game where iron and honor are the only things keeping you alive in a deadly world. Explore the Ironlands and struggle against horrors and wonders alike as you try to forge bonds with its desperate settlements and communities. Using an innovative system inspired by the PbtA framework, Ironsworn supports three entirely different ways to play: traditional GM-focused play, GMless co-operative play, and even completely solo adventuring! As such, it's a great introduction to the increasingly popular solo tabletop community and can also be a fantastic way to learn general GMing skills for any game.
We'll be making characters together and launching off on an adventure but we'll build it together as we go. No experience with the system is expected and materials will all be provided. For those that prefer to use their own dice, a d6 and two distinct d10's are used in this system.
CW: Fantasy violence, gritty survival elements like injury, weather disaster, and starvation/sickness.
Safety Tools: X-Card, Open Table, optional Lines and Veils
Note that there is a venue fee for non-members.
