I was recently discussing with my playing group about inspiration - be it stories for GMs or character inspiration for Players. We came to the conclusion that modern characters - being so close to us, are the easiest to create. Medieval Fantasy characters and stories were, for us, as easy to create. When it came to other genres, like westerns or mythic China/Japan campaigns, stories and characters did not come with the same ease.

Then I read Iron Dynasty.

This book, if read from the start, will give you tons of ideas for both characters and stories. The history will make those come to life easily. The equipment section, new selection of Edges and optional rules (using the usual skills for different tasks, like Stealth for blending) all make this book a must-own for any Savage Worlds enthusiast.

It might be the best Savage Worlds book I own.

The Good: One of the best equipment chapters I have ever seen, especially for a specialized setting, with TONS of pictures and descriptions. Lots of new Edges and setting rules to help make the setting feel unique. RANDOM~! FREAKING~! TABLES~!

The Bad: No Legendary Edges is a letdown, as is no included character sheet.

Conclusion: A very worth addition to the Savage Worlds line-up.

This is the setting that I've been waiting for. I've been interested in the Savage Worlds system for quite a while but was waiting for the perfect way to introduce it to my gaming group. Lo and behold Iron Dynasty comes along and it has everything I could ask for. Martial arts action with steam punk flavor, magic and dueling galore. The guys love it, and its giving me tons of ideas to work with. This is an amazing book that I'm going to use for quite a while. The writing style is awesome and the world history is nicely fleshed out while allowing room to move around in. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to run a campaign thats out of the ordinary, full of crazy martial-arts action and adventure. Good value for your money, and a heck of a setting, definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a new world to explore.

I've waited since the release of the SW Explorer's Edition for someone to come out with a setting like this, and the guys who brought us Realms of Cthulhu have done it. Asian tropes are handled in a FFF way worthy of Savage Worlds. Some of it, like weapon finesse, is clearly derived from d20, but since this is a Savage Worlds setting, gamers won't be stuck on number crunching. The setting itself appears, at least at first gloss, to be standard, chiche, "fantastic-Japan-that-never-was" analog, but the adventure generation tables, loads of NPCs and creatures and new Edges, etc. make up for it.
