Where to find the Guild Ball background

Recommended Posts

There's a lot of background material available about the Guild Ball world. Here's a guide to where to find Sherwin's stories.

If you want to read them in order of publication: Season 1, Season 2, Butchers Civil War, Young Theron, Season 3, Lucky, Union in Chains, Ratcatchers, Veteran Salt, Navigators, Harry the Hat, Blacksmiths.

As of April 2018, nearly all the material is available online free, but you need to buy a Season 3 rulebook (the current rulebook, though it may change in November) to see those stories.

.....................................................

Season 1, Season 2 and Union in Chains are available to download here: http://steamforged.com/resources/

The above, plus the Butchers Civil War story, is here: http://guild-ball.wikia.com/wiki/Guild_Ball_Wikia

The Guild Ball Wikia website is more complete, because it contains the individual player pages with stories on, which are not included in the main Steamforged resource site. The Wikia website also includes 12 parts for Union in Chains, whereas there are ten on the Steamforged resource site.

Young Theron's story (which is a flashback) is here:

I'd either read them in publication order (as above), or the following order:

Main fluff: Season 1; Season 2; Butchers Civil War; Season 3 

Then, these can be read in any order after the S3 fluff as they all happen at roughly the same time: Union in Chains; Ratcatchers; Veteran Salt; Navigators

And the following can be read at any point as they don't matter so much: Player Backgrounds inc Lucky;  Young Theron
