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.

Iron Kingdoms Unleashed
The setting should certainly reflect that, but not to the point where exceptions simply cannot occur. Reskinning an existing “thing” in an RPG without changing any of its crunchy rule bits is an excellent tool for any GM. It would be like complaining that PP didn’t include a ninja Career. I’ve felt IKRPG was lacking in a generic offense-oriented great weapon career, and if that’s what a ‘warrior’ is, then I have no problem with having Ryssovas, ravagers, etc.
There’s no reason a Cygnaran couldn’t learn to fight with an assault shield and a carbine with an underslung grenade laucher, but that wouldn’t make them an Assault Kommando, because they wouldn’t have served with the Assault Kommando units. All Warcasters almost assuredly at one point did work for a military somewhere. From there it’s totally kosher for a play group to adapt the rules to fit what they want.
A Trencher is a member of a specific set of units in the Cygnaran military. You could say, by a similar token, that the Iron Fang is too specific. Man at arms chieftain. My point in the subject of thamarites and necromancy is that there are a lot more ways to become a necromancer other than being a thamarite, which is restricted to humans. KNG provides a deeper look at those particulars and so its player offerings are by necessity more limited. Stormblade vs Iron Fangthey are not as sharp as the differences in traditions between different races see: Cornercase mostly-useless camp-defense benefit versus a build-making battle-mage benefit isn’t even something that needs to be thought about.
Besides, dahlia and brun cpuld probably be replicated as circle warlocks anyways.
I think that the most important part of party cohesion is not what the characters are but imrpg who the characters are. Additionally, I can see why the game design choices were made like this, even if I think it could have achieved a unlexshed effect with a more inclusive and less arbitrary rule set. PP has repeatedly said that warlocks are very different from warcasters. This would mostly apply to character creation, as this is where some of the most egregious combinations can be made, the gatorman stone sorc pugilist being probably the most obvious example.

I imagine it is because Unleashed isn’t a generic RPG, but one set within a specific part of a specific fantasy setting in which, for example, blood magic as presented in Unleashed is the exclusive province of a sect of female Tharn. Even pygs can’t be fell callers. The Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit contains character booklets for the game’s four pregenerated characters. We’ve been shown a dwarf and an Iosan who learned or were born with unlsashed talent and are not represented in any fashion.
Which makes them weaker in my eyes.
FMF has 29 careers of which only 8 are restricted by race, only 6 are gifted only and 5 starting career only. In unleashsd Smogcon Unleashed sessions we were told that there are only two careers which transitioned directly from FMF to Unleashed without change.
Slaughterhousers are hardly the most unique unit in what they use un,eashed do. Every system ever requires them. More like ARM 28 Gators. It is part of the appeal of RPGs.
That’s completely different though. Consult your Game Master to find out if mixing and matching careers is right for you. Even in unleashed, I only added two careers ikrlg am considering the merits of Bone Grinder as a stand alone, but it might get split between Alchemist and Dark Wizard and Priest. There may be one or two careers which the panel forgot about, but the vast majority are completely new.

That is still slightly sadding. If you have a mixed game then I would tend to lean towards the Unleashed version unleased I would consider it the most up to date errata on the weapons and the Nyss race. Farrow are unnatural perversions of nature, so it makes sense their beasts would also be unnatural perversions of nature.
The same applies to Nyss. And that class has a total of 2 nice abilities: For ikrpf fighter builds they lack a class with riposte. We are using a mix of both books I will probably go with the unleashed version because it seems to be closer to the actual fluff.
Bash, slice, and chomp your way through your foes, then use their broken bodies as a power-packed snack to fuel your rampages or as ingredients for your primal magic.
