There’s a couple of new books that Privateer Press has posted up for the Iron Kingdoms RPG. One’s an adventure that has been compiled from various issues of No Quarter, while another expands the more wild side of the Iron Kingdoms.
Privateer Press is getting into the holiday season with their Holiday Sale happening now. If you want any Privateer products, or have been wanting to try out their various game systems, they’ve got quite a lot of bundle deals going on.
Privateer Press is letting people know what sort of things they can expect to be released in December. Hey, fall’s here. So that means Christmas is coming (as are the other winter holidays, of course). Start making your list for the gamer in your life. If they play Hordes, Warmachine, or the IKRPG, there might be something there for them.
The Iron Kingdoms seems like they’d be a pretty terrifying place to live. You’ve got all the countries you know of at war with one-another. There are hidden armies everywhere that don’t belong to any particular nation that just like to rampage around. There’s all manner of frenzied beasts that lurk in the shadows. And even in the center of “civilization” in a big city, the tunnels and sewers are filled with horrific things. Thankfully, there are brave individuals who are ready to take on such menaces.
Day 2 is about to be in the books (as it’s only got about 15min. left and then I’m going to go to sleep). It was quite a wild and busy Friday. The frantic-ness of Thursday turned into a more calm, but no less busy Friday. Everyone was buzzing about the games that they’d picked up the day before or tried overnight.
I, of course, once more made my rounds of the place and got some galleries of photos over on the TGN Facebook page.
Hey there everyone. Welcome to Saturday. Hopefully you’re having a good day. If you missed it, be sure to check out the Age of Sigmar rules that Games Workshop posted.
If you’re in the US and you’re celebrating Independence Day, be sure to be careful with those fireworks.
I’m taking a moment from the cooking that I’m doing. What am I making? Well, I’ve got hamburgers and hot dogs that I’ll have later. I’m going to make some crawfish gumbo. On the sweet side of things, I’m making cheesecake with strawberry glaze and then chip’n’mint cookies.
But that’s as may be. At the moment, we’ve got our Review Roundup.
This weeks reviews/previews include: Unleashed RPG, Spyfall, Cockroach Poker Royal, Specter Ops, Ember: Shadow of the Demon, Star Realms: Crisis Expansion, Tuscany, Patrol Angis, Don’t Be That Guy, and Swords and Bagpipes.
Theeeeeeere’s a bad moon on the rise.
Or, for those that like misheard lyrics, “Theeeeeeeeere’s the bathroom on the right.”
I wouldn’t go out tonight… instead, you can stay in and play the new adventure for the Iron Kingdoms RPG from Privateer Press. The adventure’s titled Bad Moon Rising. And in a world where werewolves are not-all-too-uncommon, I’d say that if something called the “bad moon” where anywhere near around, going out is bound to take your life.
I hope Saturday is treating you well and is currently, or soon will be, full of gaming goodness.
I’ve got a little hobby project I’m working on for an upcoming review article. Obviously, details on that will be made specific soon when the piece goes up on the site.
Anyway, it’s time again for another Review Roundup, where we take all the gaming and hobby reviews we found throughout the week and present them to you here.
In this batch, we’ve got reviews/previews of: Warlord Games’ Wrecked House terrain piece, Citadel Crusade Figure Case, Forbidden Desert, Commands & Colors: Napoleonics – The Spanish Army Expansion, Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit, Dreams of Dystopia, Gamboni, Barnyard Legions, Dogs of War, Cthulhu Wars, and DC Dice Masters.
Privateer Press lets you take a walk on the wild side with the release of their Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Core Rules book. Effectively the “Hordes” side of the IKRPG, Unleashed gives you and your players lots of new options for gaming in Western Immoren. Want to fight Bog Trogs? You can. Want to fight Gatormen? You can. Want to be a Farrow? You can. Go wild! Really wild! You can download a preview .pdf from their website to check it out, too.

Privateer Press is just a short while away from releasing their revamped Iron Kingdoms RPG game. In today’s Insider from Simon, they’ve given us a look at how character creation works, as well as a couple samples.
We’re less than three weeks away from the pre-release of the Iron Kingdoms Full Metal Fantasy Roleplaying Game at Gen Con 2012, and we thought it was high time to share the details of character creation! You’ll find all the fundamental items of character creation in the PDF linked below, including two of the available races, two of the 28 careers in the core book (and a convenient list of all of them), and the full rules for all four archetypes, including all potential benefits!
If you’re anything like me, character creation is the first thing you check out in a new roleplaying book. Actually, if you’re like me, it’s only after you pore over the setting material, which in this book composes the first two chapters before you even hit the first rule. But I digress. You’ll notice that some careers have prerequisite archetypes and races, but aside from those exceptions you’re welcome to mix and match as you please when bodging together your adventurers.
Privateer Press posts up new art for the Iron Kingdoms RPG in their Insider Blog.
From the Insider blog:
…But as we all know, a picture can say a thousand words, and images of the Iron Kingdoms that have inspired so many of us, both audience and staff. The moody, art of the original IKRPG books helped set the tone for countless games and characters over the years. While we’re writing rules and background text for the new game, we still look to the older pieces of art for inspiration, some of which are being included in the new game and lovingly painted over to take places of pride in our new, full color books alongside all the new art we’re commissioning. Here’s an old favorite, depicting a night time chase across the rooftops of Five Fingers.
