Description Edit | History

From the publisher's website:
"As a child you were told of demons and dragons, of ruins and lost riches, and of the God-wars and their aftermath. You grew up believing that most things in the world are good, and that good always triumphs. But you were wrong. The world is besieged by evil. The borderlands are perilous. Raiders stalk the roadways. Armies battle for land and loot. Wizards engage in dark treachery. And, savage monsters devour beast and man. You live in desperate times. Will you acquire the skills to conquer evil? Will you stand against tyranny? Or will you add to the chaos?"

More Information Edit | History

Forge was published in 1998 and the Kibbe brothers continued to support it with two further scenarios (The Vemora and Tales Dead Men Tell), a Referee's Screen and a World of Juravia sourcebook until 2000.

In 2002, essayist Ron Edwards held Forge up as a definitive example of what he termed a "fantasy heartbreaker" wherein genuine passion, moments of distinctive imagination and some innovative mechanics are buried in an unsuccessful and derivative product. Edwards singles Forge out for particular praise for its "irresistible honesty" as an unreconstructed dungeon-crawler and its bespoke magic system.

The game is no longer supported by its publishers although for a couple of years Basement Games maintained a website of fan contributions towards an evolving fantasy world. The game may be of interest to players drawn to the Old School Revival (OSr) in RPGs.
