Western Immoren in 570 AR

The first books of the Iron Kingdoms RPG were set at the end of 602 AR, a very important time just as the ice of peace in the land was beginning to crack. The two volumes of Full Metal Fantasy were set in 604 and 605 AR, respectively, as dark forces revealed themselves and the Iron Kingdoms were plunged into war on all fronts. The current storyline of the most recent products is set in 608 AR or later, during a time when war has become a way of life for all.

Flight From The North precedes all of that by a generation, and this page will help explain some of the differences you’ll notice between the IK of the present storyline, and the IK as it was in 570 AR.
