Iron World, The Thief

Iron World, The Paladin

This hack is intended for either the Paladin class or Templar. I prefer the Templar in my game (especially since they have a broader range to become, instead of only the knight in shining armor), but the Paladin is still a fun class.

Iron World, The Cleric

Quick note. Use the priest class from DW, not the Cleric. Trust me on this. It is way more fun for the player. Race Ios Elf “Your last god is dying. It will probably happen within your lifetime. You don’t have long. Whenever you charge ahead recklessly you gain +1 forward on your next action.”…

Iron World, The Bard

Race Dwarf “Your people pass down the tales of heroes. You gain Legends of Heroes Past for free as a Bardic Lore.” Trollkin “You are trained in the art of the Fellcall. When you use Arcane Art to give bonus damage, roll 1d6” Drive Become Famous “When you roll for Outstanding Warrants, you automatically are…

So last time I came up with ideas to make the classes available to any race by reskinning or rewriting the race options. This time around I came up with new race options for the base classes. Also, I have written Drives and Pasts that can be used in place of Alignment and Race. Race…

Iron World, The Mechanik

Hey all. Currently I’m tossing around ideas in my head for the Mechanik class in Iron Kingdoms. I’m not sure which way would be the best to take the class so I’d like to get some input from you about where you’d like to see the class go. Right now my current idea is to…
