Welcome to the Chronicle System Guild

Welcome to the Chronicle System Guild, where you can create game supplements and adventures that are compatible with Sword Chronicle by Green Ronin Publishing, and make them available through DriveThruRPG.

The following information contains most everything you need to know to get started, so read everything closely! The more prepared you are when you embark on your journey as an Alliance member, the more successful you will be. 

Remember, you are creating content that is compatible with Sword Chronicle by Green Ronin Publishing. You may use any of the game terms from these rulebooks, and short references to rules or stats are permissible. 

However, copying large swaths of text or references, more than 30 or so words, we ask that you refer the reader to the appropriate core rulebook or supplement.
