Privateer Press has announced Iron Kingdoms: Requiem
, a new version of its role playing game set in the world of Warmachine
, built around the 5E
Combining elements of steampunk and sword-and-sorcery fantasy, Iron Kingdoms: Requiem takes players to war-torn Immoren in the time after infernal powers invaded the world in the event known as the “Claiming.” The game features classes that combine magic and technology such as the pistol-wielding Gun Mage, Warcasters who command 10-ton steam-powered war machines, and more.
The Iron Kingdoms: Requiem Campaign Setting
book will include the background of the game setting, from Immoren’s history to the current situation following the Claiming. The world itself and many of its locations are also described in a gazetteer. Rounding out the book are rules for the character classes and races unique to the setting, new feats, spells, and character backgrounds, as well as rules for its arcane technology, from firearms to mechanika.
Two additional books are planned to support the initial launch, including the Monsternomicon, featuring more than 80 monsters unique to the setting, and an introductory adventure campaign called Legend of the Witchfire, designed to take new characters from level 1 to level 4. A GM screen will also be offered.
Final page counts and MSRP have not been announced.
