# What is the established story/lore of Infernals and their realm in the IKRPG?

I'm contemplating running a campaign with the new IKRPG that may or may not end up (way down the line) confronting some Infernal creatures, possibly even on their home turf. What information is available about Infernals and where they reside?

I'm interested in any answers that can relate more directly to the new IKRPG release, or even the WarMachine/Hordes miniature war games. Information from the original IK d20 game could potentially be helpful, particularly if more recent information is lacking (which I strongly suspect to be the case based on other research). Any information about Infernals is valuable, but extensive answers with detailed sources would be awesome.

• AFAIK, the old Iron Kingdoms and the new Iron Kingdoms are just system changes/updates/returning-to-in-print (the d20 IK core book went OOP ages ago), while the setting it shares with Warmachine has never changed/rebooted. Is that impression incorrect? – SevenSidedDie Nov 10 '13 at 20:34
• @SevenSidedDie: I was thinking that too for a while, but there is some refinement in the general lore. And then there's psuedo-teleports like Mirage (not to mention a ton of teleport-like effects happening in WarmaHordes), so I can't help but wonder if there are some differences between old and new Iron Kingdoms. But if the best answer is the d20 material (which I don't have direct access to), I'm more than happy to mark it. – Ellesedil Nov 10 '13 at 20:38
• I am new to IK and currently reading the core book. When I read about the Infernals I had a strange feeling why they mentionend them at all. I can not make any use of it in the games besides telling stories about mighty and evil creatures. I suspect that they are part of IK and thus needed to be mentioned, but the authors did not have space or time to write more. Maybe they thought this should be part of another publication for more experienced players or due to marketing reasons (sell more books). – Alex Jul 30 '14 at 19:01
