Description

The Iron Oath is a turn-based tactical RPG within a medieval fantasy setting. Lead, recruit and manage a band of mercenaries who will age, retire and die. Fulfill contracts over decades and centuries, and build your company's renown while navigating an ever-changing world.

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.
