The Iron Kingdoms setting, an alternate role-playing universe that shares some of the same mechanics as Dungeons & Dragons, is being restarted as Iron Kingdoms: Requiem. Originally based on an older set of rules that it shared with D&D, this new version will be updated to be compatible with the 5th edition of the hugely popular RPG (TTRPG).
A campaign on Kickstarter closes $ 500,000 – the project’s goal was only $ 100,000 – with a little more than two days left until the time of publication. Delivery of digital and physical products is expected by September.
Published by Privateer Press, the Iron Kingdoms setting was originally based on Wizards of the Coast̵
The original Iron Kingdoms setting earned Privateer Press no fewer than 16 Ennie awards. Players who have experienced it before can remember the most popular iteration, known as The Witchfire Trilogy. Privateer intends to create several new products with this crowdfunding campaign, including a setting book, a monster handbook and a sequel to the original Witchfire adventures.
