Just when I thought the Iron Kingdoms RPG was vaporware …


When you’ve followed the blog for a while you might have noticed that I am a huge fan of the Iron Kingdoms setting by Privateer Press. But I also thought that D&D 3.0/3.5 was a bad fit for the world and I always hoped they would either create a roleplaying game system of their own design or rerelease Iron Kingdoms for a more fitting system.

In June last year they announced an original Iron Kingdoms RPG that was supposed to be not necessarily compatible to the Warmachine and Hordes rules, but close enough, so that players familiar with the skirmish games can learn the roleplaying game rules quickly. But after that initial announcement I haven’t heard from that project again.

But as it seems, it’s not vaporware after all. They haven’t announced a release date as far as I know, but there’s a video in which the people from Privateer Press talk about the RPG.

As a fan of the setting I can’t wait to learn more about this game!

  1. I cannot wait either. I think the Iron Kingdoms was easily one of the most interesting settings come out in the last few years. So, I’m really curious to see what they do with this game and how we get a release date soon.

  2. I wound up with their monster books and it was great…one of the best monster books I’d seen. Unfortunately, the main books were long out of print and overpriced at that point.

    Color me very interested in what happens next.
