In Bardsung: Legend of the Ancient Forge, you begin with a single tile and a destination. What unfolds is a branching, labyrinthine dungeon full of dangerous enemies, wandering monsters, challenging puzzles, and valuable treasure.

Bardsung is a game of choosing your path to inspire the bard’s songs and live your legend. From your physical passage through the dungeon to your journey of building your character into a fabled hero, your choices define your experience.

Because dungeons are procedurally generated (like those in a roguelike video game), no two play-throughs will be the same. Lay tiles to build the dungeon as you go, choosing your direction from the options at hand, and seek loot while avoiding threats.

The Event, Battle, and Challenge decks mean you will encounter different enemies and challenges, such as new foes, poisoned weapons, traps, reinforcements, non-player characters, and more.

Round length, turns, and enemy activations are governed by a dynamic marching order that will keep you on your toes, encouraging you to adapt strategies to control the ebb and flow of the game.

As you continue your campaign, you'll level up your hero to upgrade their stats, access powerful new abilities, and enhance existing skills. You have the freedom to either follow your hero’s designated path, or to create your own bespoke hero with a unique set of traits and an arsenal of attack combos.

Enter intelligent and dangerous combat where positioning and teamwork are vital: maximize your attacks and work with your allies! Your abilities can’t be reused, so choose your moment wisely. And, beware! The same enemy will behave differently from one encounter to the next. Just like your hero, enemies can level up, evolve their attacks, and can even learn to hold grudges against heroes who defeat them...

Bardsung can be enjoyed as a cooperative game of up to five players, or as an exciting solo player experience. Explore the dungeon in standalone sessions, or as part of a far-reaching narrative campaign that evolves based on your decisions.

A roleplaying-game (RPG) dungeon explorer, Bardsung takes the best elements of traditional roleplaying games and beloved dungeon-crawling classics, and combines them with a dash of contemporary gameplay to create a powerful new experience.

With swift setup and easy-to-grasp mechanics taught by an intuitive tutorial-based rulebook, your descent into the dungeon will be quick!
