The past few weeks have been pretty crazy for the writing and editorial staff at Privateer Press. We’re working hard to wrap up the second book of the Iron Kingdoms Full Metal Fantasy Roleplaying Game, titled “Kings, Nations, and Gods.” Doug Seacat, Jason Soles, and I have endeavored to place the nations of the Iron Kingdoms (Cygnar, Khador, Llael, Ord, and the Protectorate of Menoth) under a microscope like never before. We’ve examined the history, culture, people, cities, and politics of each nation in excruciating detail, argued extensively, and not-quite-come-to-blows over the finer points of dueling culture in Llael, the operational jurisdiction of the Prikaz Chancellery, and just how the internal economy of the Protectorate functions (short answer: badly).
While we are still a few days from having everything in the hands of our equally loved and feared Managing Editor and Commanatrix, Darla Kennerud, we’re very close! With this depth of newly forged setting knowledge fresh in our minds, what better time than now to talk about it with our audience? For those of you in the Bellevue, Washington area or those of you keen on visiting, I invite you to join Lead Developer Jason Soles and me at Steamcon IV (http://www.steamcon.org) on Friday, October 26th. Jason and I will be presenting our “Welcome to the Iron Kingdoms” panel at 5:00 p.m. in Regency C. We’ll talk a little about the new game, with a focus on world-building, before taking questions from the audience. In addition, our loyal and tireless Press Gangers will be running Iron Kingdoms RPG demos all weekend long.
See you there!
