Where to find the Guild Ball background

Recommended Posts

[UPDATED: Oct 2018]

There's a lot of background material available about the Guild Ball world. The main site is: https://hub.guild-ball.com/the-setting

You can find here the stories from the Season 1-3 rulebooks and the two community events that took place in 2016 and 2017 (Civil War and Union in Chains) as well as the Theron origins story.

There have been more stories posted mainly on the Steamforged blog. Links are given below.

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, Cooks, Free Cities Draft.

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

It's also worth looking at this unofficial site: http://guild-ball.wikia.com/wiki/Guild_Ball_Wikia

The Guild Ball Wikia website has some extra material, as it includes the story texts from the individual character profile pages of the season 1 and 2 rulebooks, which aren't in the files on the hub.

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
