Spellburn and Battlescars
A downloadable ttrpg
Gold and Glory, Marked by the Odd.
Spellburn and Battlescars is a Sword & Sorcery TTRPG where you play foolhardy adventurers who delve into mysterious places for wealth. With both classical conventions and modern sensibilities, it features:
- Streamlined character creation that uses randomness but still leave choices to be made by the players.
- Fast and decisive combat, delivering high action while still keeping the constant risk of death.
- Dangerous and unpredictable magic, where the next spell can completely change your character.
This release is what we're calling the "Player's Guide" for Spellburn and Battlescars, containing it's core rules — basically everything a group needs to start playing.
It is followed by a "Game Master's Handbook", which contains extra rules, procedures and tools to help the GM create and run games.
Our plan is to eventually build a series of small releases of extra content that you can plug and unplug to your game as needed.

Good Pick for those who like fast paced and simple systems. This TTRPG is an OSR child with a treasure driven goal and clean combat rules. — euibp
As someone who always loved the ~vibe~ of DCC but was turned off by so many tables and dice, I love this! I can't wait to dive into a DCC adventure with these rules. — abjaquaying
Excellent, this is the game I was looking for! Can't wait for game masters book. — Dragoras89
Simple yet totally functional sword and sorcery RPG. The danger level and do it yourself attitude of OSR games, the zaniness of DCC's magic corruptions, and the ease of use of games based on Into The Odd. The Google Spreadsheet Character Keeper is a real plus. What's not to love? — mekkagodzilla
The combination of the old-school inspired archetypes with the base Into the Odd chassis is great! — deadpanbob
