Privateer 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.
