Iron Kingdoms

Privateer Quest has announced a new hybrid miniatures board game set in the popular Iron Kingdoms Universe, Riot Quest. In Riot Quest, the battle for the Iron Kingdoms has gone very… badly. You see, “humanity in the Iron Kingdoms was never really supposed to have access to magic. Humans aren’t the most careful or responsible creatures.” So things went the way they often do, and the world has been destroyed. Luckily, some scrappy survivors remain to battle in this apocalypse, collect bounties, and loot the spoils of war. “You’ll need a crackerjack crew, gobs of gear, and lots of love for the chaos of battle if you’re going to score the best leftover loot in the land.”

The Riot Quest Starter Box comes with board, tokens, 15 custom dice, 32 cards, and 5 hobby miniatures with stat cards to start the fight. Balthazar Bamfist is appropriately named for him job. Gubbin, the demolitions expert may be just a little too crazy to carry all that explosives. Sir Dreyfuss is a powerful, technological knight, while Dez is the token big guy with a bazooka. Finally, Eiryss Fortune Hunter of Ios is a dark, mysterious rogue with powers untold.

In Riot Quest, players take their gang of scavengers into the ruins, fighting and looting. Bounty Cards dictate specific conditions in the arena, as well as how to claim the cards for points. A constant market of refilling cards ensures a unique, varied game each time. Game play revolves around a set of custom dice, the stats of the characters, and whatever gear the players can steal and equip. Look for the Riot Quest Starter Box at your FLGS in August 2019, as well as the extra miniature, Riot Quest: J.A.I.M.s (Jacobsen’s Amazing Iron Maiden) Guard. For more information, keep an eye on the Privateer Press website.
