A 5e RPG expansion for the Iron Kingdoms: Requiem setting has attracted over 3,000 backers and shot well beyond $250,000 in backing on Kickstarter.
Iron Kingdoms: Borderlands and Beyond only has a week left to run at Kickstarter, give or take, after giving itself less than the average amount of time to fund. Privateer Press knew what they were doing, though, and the campaign goal as been met easily. You can join in from the pitch page.
You won’t need any previous Iron Kingdoms material for this campaign. Borderlands and Beyond can be your first port of call to the setting. That said, it’s not the core rules, and if you’ve not backed those at Kickstarter, you’ll have to sign up and wait for news for their release.
This sourcebook expands the geographical area of interest, adding five new races, three classes and an impressive twenty-five subclasses.
There’s also new backgrounds and adventuring companies.
The Iron Kingdoms is a realm forged in a violent crucible by arcane sciences, steam power and industry… But what lies beyond the walls of man?
For the first time in the Iron Kingdoms: Requiem campaign setting for 5e, travel beyond the Iron Kingdoms’ borders and into the vast borderlands. Explore the ancient kingdoms of Ios, the elves’ mist-shrouded home, and the rugged mountain cities of Rhul where the ancient dwarves dwell. Set out on an adventure in the sun-beaten expanse of the Bloodstone Marches, home to scavengers, nomads, and vagabonds, or journey into the tangled Glimmerwood, where the tribes of sturdy trollkin, cunning bogrin, and others follow the old ways.
Backers who pledge $25 or more get the digital copy of the supplement, all digital stretch goals.
At $50, PDFs of Iron Kingdoms: Borderlands Survival Guide and Shadows of the Seeker Adventure are added. These are the GM-specific expansions for the setting.
Alternatively, $50 is enough to get the core Borderlands and Beyond in paper, but shipping will need to be found later.
To get all the GM books, those three Borderlands expansions, and the PDFs, backers need to find $100. That’s about $10 cheaper than waiting for them to be out in retail, though.
