Fridays Unleashed 11-12-2014

As you probably already know, the Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Roleplaying Game Core Rules book is coming out early next year. More than just an expansion featuring the more savage aspects of the Iron Kingdoms, this heavy tome includes a new stand-alone but cross-compatible rules system soaked in adrenaline and imbued with a fighting attitude. Watch our announcement video if you haven’t seen it yet!

What you probably don’t know, however, is that in addition to the Core Rules book, Privateer Press is also publishing the Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit! This provides an action-packed introduction to the untamed side of the Iron Kingdoms and includes everything you need to play right out of the box, complete with a condensed version of the rules, a 32-page adventure, four pre-generated characters, map tiles and terrain markers to play on, and more than a dozen plastic miniatures!

We gave a select few Gen Con attendees a little taste of the Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit, with a sampling of the included adventure. Players quickly took to the savage style of Unleashed. Slain enemies made for a quick between-battle snack for the Tharn and gatorman characters, and in one notable occasion a bone grinder’s player decided to fashion the entrails of a farrow into an improvised “meat silencer.” At one point, the players even made use of the first weaponized pygmy troll whelp, getting good use out of the Thrown Weapon skill and an explosive charge!

In upcoming editions of Fridays Unleashed, we’ll take a deeper look at specific aspects of Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit, previewing the rules, adventure, components, characters, and more. Check back at regularly for new Fridays Unleashed as you prepare for the Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit to release in early 2015!
