About This Game

You drag yourself from the black tides, across the corpses of drowned men, and onto the unwelcoming, craggy shoreline. Gulls cry overhead and the stink of seaweed fills your nose. By some miracle you have made it to Idra. It will take all your skill to survive and unravel the eldritch mysteries of the Black Priory. Pray your sanity holds.

‘Skald: Against the Black Priory’ is an old-school roleplaying game that combines modern design and a fully realised narrative with authentic 8-bit looks and charms.

Delve into a dark fantasy world, full of tragic heroes, violent deaths and Lovecraftian, cosmic horror. Explore an engaging, branching story mixed with rich exploration and crunchy, tactical, turn-based combat that will seem familiar yet innovative to RPG fans, old and new.

Do you have what it takes to lead a company of broken heroes from the tainted shores of Idra to the gates of the Black Priory - and beyond?

Retro-styled tactical party-based RPG:
Gather your party of characters in a time of courageous needs, or heroic recklessness, and engage in challenging, turn- and grid-based combat. Cleave, blast or stealth your way through engagements and combats – play it your way. Skald enhances the beloved formula with engaging modern RPG features like auto-resolve, journals and quest logs, modern inventory systems and more!

Grim-Dark choice matter fantasy:
Set in an unforgiving world with lovecraftian horrors, your decisions will take you through a rich, branching narrative - or lead you and your party to dire consequences. Uncover the grand schemes of the Gallian Empire, live a life of a mercenary or explore the vast expanse of Freymark and the Outer Isles. Experience a richly illustrated world of authentic pixel art using thousands of hand-drawn tiles and images with a palette inspired by the legendary Commodore 64 computer – Optional CRT filter for that authentic old-school experience.

Deep character and party creation:
Build your main character and recruit the party you need from among a series of diverse characters, each with their own skill-set, agenda and personality. Choose from a dozen classes and backgrounds as well as heaps of feats, spells and equipment as you take on unimaginable challenges and horrors from your party level 1 to 20.
