Description Edit | History

Privateer Press was founded in December 2000 by Brian Snoddy, Matt Staroscik and Matt Wilson. All three company founders are game industry veterans; Matt Staroscik & Matt Wilson were two of the creative minds behind the Legend of the Five Rings card game, and Brian Snoddy's artwork has been a fan favorite for years. Matt Wilson is a well-loved fantasy & sci-fi illustrator as well. His and Brian's talents insure that Privateer Press's products have some of the best art around.

From the beginning, the company's goal was simple -- to produce the best fantasy gaming material available. To accomplish this, the decision was made to develop a new fantasy game world, the Iron Kingdoms. The Iron Kingdoms is a fantasy setting with a twist -- the introduction of steam power, firearms and other elements of technology rarely seen in fantasy gaming. Purists need not cringe though, as the Iron Kingdoms remains true to its fantasy roots; swords and sorcery are not displaced by steam and gunpowder, only enhanced. Old friends like elves and dwarves are not abandoned, but forged into new likenesses, fusing old traditions with fresh ideas.

The first product set in the Iron Kingdoms were the Witchfire Trilogy of adventures for the D20 System. The Monsternomicon was released in August 2002, and the award winning miniatures game Warmachine® continues to increase globally in sales. Future products will continue to support the d20 line and Warmachine.

So far the company's designs have been a success. The Witchfire Trilogy and the Monsternomicon have all been met with popular and critical acclaim, and the Iron Kingdoms: Character Guide for the d20 rules is on it's second printing. Privateer Press also secured four "ENnie Awards" in 2001, including the prestigious Best Publisher and Best Setting; and won three Origins Awards in 2004 for Best Fantasy Miniatures Series, Fantasy Miniatures Rules, and also the Gamer's Choice Miniatures award.
