Dataforged v1.5.0

undefined undefined Join the Ironsworn Discord Visit the r/Ironsworn subreddit

Official content and rules data for the Ironsworn: Starforged tabletop role-playing game, formatted as JSON for use in community tools. 🚀 Includes JSON schemas and a Javascript/Typescript API.


What's this all about, anyways?

Ironsworn: Starforged is a tabletop role-playing game that's playable in solo, co-op (GM-less), and guided (GMed) modes.

In Ironsworn: Starforged, you are a spaceborne hero sworn to undertake perilous quests. You will explore uncharted space, unravel the secrets of a mysterious galaxy, and build bonds with those you meet on your travels. Most importantly, you will swear iron vows and see them fulfilled—no matter the cost.

For more information on Ironsworn: Starforged itself, check out the website.

The Dataforged repo exists to provide the Creative Commons-licensed text and image content of Ironsworn: Starforged, so that you--an intrepid developer with excellent taste in indie TTRPGs--don't need to do data entry for the game's 200+ oracle tables, 90 asset cards, 56 moves, and 14 setting truth categories, and 24 example encounters.

Use it as source material to build a personal reference wiki, a play aid, a discord bot, or module for your favourite VTT, or something that nobody else has imagined yet. Be sure to check out some of the projects that use Dataforged below.

Dataforged may be useful to you even if you aren't developing something for Ironsworn: Starforged specifically: the overwhelming majority of its d% oracle tables are system agnostic, so they might be used for any generator or other TTRPG tool with a sci-fi/space opera flavour.

Now, go forth and make something cool! 🚀 And be sure to tell us about it on the Ironsworn Discord and the Ironsworn subreddit so we can see what you've done with the data!
