Firebrand - fantasy wargame rules

Watermarked PDF

Demons visit the planet of Edell in the guise of gods and goddesses. They plot to twist the laws of this world to serve their kind. Four demons compete for the loyalty of Edellian people. Their followers, divided by their allegiance to one of the four, strive to bring about their patron’s dominion. A secretive order of knights-hexer works to weaken the churches and stop the demonic invasion.


The Game

Firebrand is a tabletop game based on the award-nominated Song of Blades and Heroes. It aims to deliver consistent and intuitive gameplay with an original and engaging setting.



Setting. Firebrand presents an unconventional fantasy world where nothing is as it seems. Take up the cause of one of four theocracies and fight for its patron demon’s dominion, or join the ranks of the knights-hexer and protect humanity from its own saints.


Map-based campaigns. Firebrand introduces a map-based campaign where each region will provide the player with different benefits. For example, capturing a town with a knightly order will allow you to enlist heavy cavalry, a village with a college of magic will let you hire a mage, and so on.


Orders. A new system of orders allows soldiers to retain cohesion and act as a single unit on the battlefield. Heroes and soldiers alike fall in line to march, charge and fire volleys when ordered.


Siege equipment. Cut swathes in enemy ranks using catapults and ballistas, dig trenches to funnel your opponent into explosive traps and strengthen your spell-casters by bringing solar furnaces to the battlefield.

Detailed magic system. Wizards, necromancers and telepaths will join your company, bringing with them spells beyond those available to an ordinary mage. The wizard will rain fire and lightning from every direction using powers of teleportation. The necromancer brings your opponent’s own soldiers back to life and places them under your control. The telepath subverts those yet living to your will.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
