Iron Kingdoms – Full Metal Fantasy roleplaying

Iron Kingdoms – Full Metal Fantasy roleplaying

by Tuesday 20 September 2016
ironkingdoms-corerulesIn September 2016 we brought you the Iron Kingdoms Bundle featuring Iron Kingdoms, the Full Metal Fantasy tabletop RPG from Privateer Press set in the world of the popular WARMACHINE miniatures game. On the continent of Immoren, magic meets machinery in an ongoing industrial revolution. The vigorous Kingdoms, having overthrown the conquering Orgoth, now use arcane mechanika to fight out ancient grudges. Beasts and cults rule the wilderness, and necromancers call forth the dead. To survive in these soot-covered cities, you’ll need brains, brawn, a loaded pistol, and a touch of alchemy.

ironkingdoms-kingsnationsgodsPrivateer Press launched the Iron Kingdoms during the D20 boom with an epic three-part adventure, the Witchfire Trilogy (2001). Through 2005 the company published seven more books under the D20 and Open Gaming Licenses. Privateer used the setting for its flagship miniatures games WARMACHINE and HORDES, and in turn adapted those game systems back into roleplaying with the 2013 Iron Kingdoms Core Rules. A free-standing companion RPG, Unleashed, followed in 2015. This offer presents both rulebooks along with several major supplements and adventures.
