Swordbearer is a fantasy role-playing game. It was originally published by Heritage Games in 1982, and then republished by Fantasy Games Unlimited in 1985. The game was written by B. Dennis Sustare with contributions from Arnold Hendrick

The game came with a simple percentile skill resolution system, a realistic and colourful combat system, an extremely evocative magic system based around pure elemental essences and psychic spirit humours and useful GM advice.

Swordbearer is well recognised as a 'hidden gem' in the history of role playing games despite a lack of commercial success.
