Keera the Sunderer 1: Campaign Set-up

For my second Commands and Colors Ancients solo campaign, I will use Ironsworn to drive the story-telling elements.

Keera, the main character, is a Gallic chief fighting the Romans. For the other details, I used the “Semi-Random Campaign Setup” from the Ironsworn book: I started by choosing assets, before deciding how to allocate stats.

2-4) Assets (I randomly selected five assets and discarded two).
Loyalist – Path
Sunderer – Combat Talent
Shadow Walker – Ritual

1) Character Stats: Edge:1 Heart:2 Iron:2 Shadow:3 Wits:1
[I used the assets as a broad description of the character; this suggested me to give Shadow, Iron and Heart the highest values]

5) Background Vow: [Oracle] Enrich Themselves. Keera’s ultimate goal is to plunder a major Roman city and avenge the misery her kin has suffered for generations.

6) Bonds:
6.1 Mogurix: [Oracle] a Generous and Resourceful Warrior. He is the leader of the Wind-Riders, a clan allied with Keera’s Sunderers (the “Loyalist” asset inspired me to defined the Gallic army as the result of an alliance between different clans)
6.2 Lavinia: [Oracle] a Quiet and Powerful Healer. She is Mogurix’ wife. She was born a Roman; she remained an orphan as a child and was adopted by the Wind-Riders.
6.3 Beltros: [Oracle] a Stingy and Hostile Druid. Beltros is the oldest member of the clan. He is well respected as a wise man and depositary of tribal lore. He is a conservator and thinks that the risks of war should be avoided whenever possible.

7) Inciting Incident[Oracle] nature strikes back
The area where the Sunderers and the Wind-Riders live has been flooded again. Keera and Mogurix decide that, next spring, they will lead their clans South, towards the lands where the fathers of their fathers lived, before they were pushed North by the advance of the Romans.


Keera swears to find the tomb of Dag, her legendary ancestor who ruled in the South and was the last to defeat the Romans.

Swear an Iron Vow: Challenge:7,8 / Action:1+2(Heart)+1(Bond) MISS
-2 Momentum (now 0)
The clans are making ready to move South, when they are attacked by the Romans!

Keera’s current situation:

Stats – Edge:1 Heart:2 Iron:2 Shadow:3 Wits:1
Health:5 Spirit:5 Supply:5 Momentum:0
Vow: find the tomb of Dag in the South (Dangerous) – Progress:0
Background Vow: plunder a major Roman city (Extreme) Progress:0
