Description

Command, endure, and prosper in The Iron Oath, a turn-based tactical RPG where the fate of your mercenary company rests on your decisions. Lead your band as they age, retire, and die. Build your outfit’s renown across decades in the ever-changing medieval fantasy realm of Caelum.

History

The Iron Oath was conceptualized back in late 2015, with our primary influences at the time being D&D and Darkest Dungeon. Originally, we had planned for combat to be more like a traditional JRPG, but we later decided to completely overhaul the combat, putting more of an emphasis on tactics.

In 2017 we ran a successful Kickstarter and have been working on the game full-time since then.

Features

  • Tactical Turn-Based Combat: Proper planning and execution is vital to your success. Deadly foes, traps, and destructible objects means one misstep could be your party's undoing.
  • Time Progression: Time passes as you navigate the world. Your characters will age, retire, and die, and the world around you will change through various events.
  • Dynamic Overworld: Caelum is a large, ever-changing world. Cities can be conquered, destroyed, and rebuilt as the Noble Houses all vie for power.
  • In-Depth Management: Manage your company's roster, finances, and political relationships. Gain wealth and renown by completing contracts, and invest in upgrading the many facets of your organization.
  • Character Customization: Various traits make each character unique. As they gain experience and rank up, you can further customize each class by upgrading and altering their special abilities.
  • Decisions Matter: You will make many decisions throughout your journey. The choices you make bear consequences, and they can influence your characters, your company, and the world itself.
