Iron Kingdoms Unleashed: Skorne Empire is an in-depth guide to the awesomely brutal eastern realm of the skorne race—deadly desert warriors whose lives revolve around honor, glory, and pain on a massive scale.

This strange but formidable nation has been introduced to the west through the actions of the former king of Cygnar, Vinter Raelthorne IV. From the Kajaras Mountains in the east to the breathtaking spires of the Abyssal Fortress, Skorne Empire delivers everything an intrepid adventurer needs to know to battle alongside, or against, these inscrutable people.

Blood. Pain. Honor. Death. Sounds like the Skorne Empire to me!

    I’m still thinking that these RPGs offer a great set of “create your own warlock/warcaster” rules. I think it would be great for a league to do a narrative style campaign where each player creates a unique character to lead their battle group. Great for campaign games as well, with the experience system allowing you to improve your character between games. The rules between the games are so close that I often just use the various army books for quick stat references or when I need a new creature.
    The Skorne Empire book is great simply for all the new background it provides for the IK world. Most of the book is not to be found in other PP publications.
