Song of Swords is a dark low-fantasy tabletop roleplaying game that focuses on lethal, tactical combat, with a library of arms and armor inspired by real history. It offers meaningful risk vs reward choices, be it through how you attack an enemy, to what motivates your character--your fate is in your hands, and the choices you make.
Roleplaying is enhanced through our character progression system that rewards characters for pursuing their goals, and fighting is brought to a level of brutal realism that favors the well-prepared warrior.
The game delivers an unparalleled experience, taking veterans of the genre to the next level of tabletop gaming, and providing new players the chance to dive into a content-rich system.
Gritty Realistic Combat
Your characters can select where they strike their opponents, and choose how much effort they put behind their attack. Instead of just whittling away an enemy’s hit points, you inflict wounds that cause pain and bleeding, which hampers their ability to fight back.
This culminates into an unparalleled gaming experience that is perfect for both historical campaigns and high fantasy adventures.
