Sessions GM'd: 5
Sessions as Solo Player: 3
I have the PDF and also the Delve add-on book. I played on Roll20, when playing with my friends and also when playing solo. I took game notes in a Google doc.
This was my first foray into solo RPGs, and I found it really engaging. I soon found I lacked the discipline to actually play properly when alone, and invited some friends to play. It was a good move for me, to switch to GM Mode. Much better. It was good fun, and easy to run with light prep.
I am sold on this core game engine. I backed the Starforged kickstarter as a consequence of the good fun I had playing Ironsworn. I have been musing about reskinning the game for a variety of other settings, especially urban fantasy. Next time I play Ironsworn, I'll pick a different setting. Anything low-magic will work. Maybe Westeros?
