Welcome to Ironhold! Ironhold is a parallel universe succession game. What does that mean? After the first year is played, the save file is handed off to two players to compare how the same initial fortress progresses when in different hands.

The player list is cyclic, so everyone will have a chance to play in both of the parallel universes.

Please try to finish your turn within a week. Preferably, simultaneous players will publish their results together... that is, in lockstep, to keep revelations in one universe from prematurely leaking into the other.

If you know you won't be able to do your turn when it comes up, please send an email or post to the forums, so that the next player can step forward. Don't just leave us hanging in Dwarf limbo...

Upcoming Players[edit]

Despite being shown in two columns here, the player list is cyclic. So when the players at the top finish their turn, they get added back to the bottom, but also swap universes. New players should be added to the bottom of either list.
