Pathfinder Iron Ring Reference

Post by Mortis » Tue Jun 06, 2017 10:38 am

In the current Ironfang Invasion adventure path there is a Hobgoblin slavery organisation know as the Iron Ring (Ironfang Invasion 2 - Fangs of War p.72 by Ron Lundeen). A couple of snippets:
Fangs of War wrote:"The primary exception to this rule is the hobgoblin slaving organization known as the Iron Ring. These slavers participate in and promote the slave trade as a business instead of simply a means of exploiting prisoners of war."
"Hobgoblins are not generally a seafaring people, but the Iron Ring maintains a small fleet of slave galleys that ply the waters of the Obari Ocean,"
Could the Iron Ring have gone off planet? :D

Interesting- I hadn't even noticed that reference.

I'm guessing it is probably just a coincidence and not a deliberate reference to the Mystaran Iron Ring, but who knows? Maybe the Iron Ring were inspired to take their slavery operations interplanetary in order to compete with the Men of Leng. :lol:
