No reason for some of the races you couldn’t mix an unleashed career and a ikrpg career. Man at arms chieftain. Or is there something?. I tend to go with the IKRPG one as it lines up better with stuff like Greataxes from Unleashed. But then, I did my own redo of Nyss to not require. With all the cool new races/careers in Unleashed we were considering and themes of the Iron Kingdoms, and this issue bears directly on that.

You have to remember that the wolves that tharn ride aren’t just “Big Wolves” they are Dusk Wolves, intelligent and fierce creatures. Now, lets us be honest a gatorman won’t make a good spy or thief in the civilized lands. Stormblade vs Iron Fangthey are not as sharp as the differences in traditions between different races see: Man at arms chieftain. Currently, Iron Kingdoms is under copyright by Privateer Press, and no free copies of the rules are legally available.
By all means, talk with your GMs if you want to play something outside the box, but at the end of the day we want to produce a game that fits our baseline vision of western Immoren. The party composition just suggests that people from extremely different, even antagonistic backgrounds, can unite for a greater cause. It makes sense to me. IN in the context of that culture, access to those practices is restricted to females.
If I could have bought IK Unleashed at half cost which only contained the fluff information, I would have bought that after how I saw them handling the system, more so after they made the choice to make it a ‘new’ system which it’s not, and the idea that it is, is just flat wrong. If you have a mixed game then I would tend to lean towards the Unlsashed version as I would consider it the most unlaeshed to date errata on the weapons and the Nyss race.
It makes a lot of sense to allow it for any medium base, so if a player asked, I’d approve this without a second glance. Races and archetype are just extremely restrictive in unleashed. Its one reason I would have preferred a less unleazhed rule set, with more attention paid to evening out the highs and unleashd lows achievable within the RAW.
FMF just seems to have more background careers that are primarily RP oriented with little combat ability. You should have a separate class for literally every different military and paramilitary group in the setting as no one is ‘Just a soldier’.
Unleashed really doesn’t and even in the base IKRPG there are some classes that have little reason to exist when there is already a generic class for them. In general, thematically, things do not mix. Plus, in an RPG setting, characters are ilrpg less “typical” than the setting usually would suggest. Complaining unleashhed Thamarite Advocate is too restrictive misses the point, because the worship of Thamar is restricted to humans in the setting – other races have their own gods and practices.
Its an Nuleashed within a restricted setting.

I still am not disagreeing that they all do it differently. I would say the Brigand is more akin to the Cutthroat. Maybe they will do Legion as well but that’s really just taking a Nyss and giving them the Blighted template. This becomes even more dramatic of a problem, when a large number of abilities are locked behind restricted careers, even when those abilities are clearly not that special or unique. It contains the Hogwash adventure for the four player characters to experience, along with detailed information about the setting, NPCs, scenarios, and map layouts for combat encounters.
It would be like complaining that PP didn’t include a ninja Career. People want to be able to design their own characters and make it their own thing, not just follow PP’s pre-designed structure for how apparently every living thing in Immoren is supposed to live. I don’t see any reason why anyone else couldn’t pick up a big halberd and do what a slaughterhouser does. Although I gather that a large number of mystical practices IIRC there are 13 Gifted careers would fall under a broader definition of blood magic.
We all have our own threshhold for how tightly or unleashev we want to hold to the setting and themes of the Iron Kingdoms, and this issue bears directly on that. And really, what makes warcasters any different?
IK is a very specific and well developed world and the designers clearly wanted to build the world into a game. Bottom line for me is that in general the content is not to be mixed in a single character, but a GM can use their head and make exceptions when it makes sense.
Sure, not all Necromancers are Thamarites or Cryxian, but those that aren’t are such a small minority they have not, at least not yet, deserved their own generic class. You’ve likely never seen a human warlock with a gator because they all got eaten before they could accomplish the bonding process.

They have the blood witches who also work on ‘Hit a dude with a melee weapon, do something horrific with his blood’. For example, having very specific magical ikpg religious options locked to certain races and organizations makes sense. Trollkin and Farrow seem to share some links, bonding only to racially similar ‘beasts’, who sit some where in a grey space between ‘Sentient being’ and ‘animal’.
Fury is Fury, leeching is leeching, etc etc. Nyss changes are pretty mundane in the final wash, so like others before I use them instead of FMF stats.
It makes characters different even with the same career. Regardless, Lanz’s post about necromancers and pugilists is sort of a request for “setting neutral” careers, but I’m not seeing how it’s a bad thing.
I actually like that. But the Bloodweaver career as written in the book is not the “general bloodmagic” career any more than the Thamarite Advocate is the “generic necromancer” career. It boils down to this:
