The Protectorate of Menoth
Devout worshippers of Menoth, the Creator, the people of the Protectorate forged the newest of the Iron Kingdoms out of the tyranny of religious oppression. Secret warjack depots send new and improved chassis into the world, while freshly recruited zealots armed from hidden weapons stashes muster to join the front. Their religion has adherents across the region, and the call to war has caused these believers to turn on their former sovereigns. The skies have darkened with the soot and smoke from the Protectorate's crusades, and the flames of their holy war burn bright enough to be seen far and wide.
The Iron Kingdoms are populated by rare individuals who possess incredible arcane talents in addition to unmatched combat skills. Even more important, they can mentally command and channel their power through the most devastating weapons of war—warjacks. In WARMACHINE: Tactics, your squad is led by such a warcaster, one of many unique characters drawn from a colorful pantheon that makes up the epic cast of this setting. Each warcaster possesses an arsenal of weapons tailored to his personal fighting style as well as a unique combination of spells and skills. These include a defining arcane feat that, when used at the right time, can turn the tide of battle.

The spearhead of the WARMACHINE fighting force is the warjack. Outfitted with an array of wicked weaponry, these imposing constructs of steel and iron are brought to life through a fusion of steam power and magic and controlled with deadly precision by the warcaster. A warcaster is in constant telepathic contact with her warjacks and can channel her focus through a warjack to boost the machine’s combat abilities and enable it to execute devastating power attacks. The relationship between warcasters and their warjacks is as close as the kinship between any brothers in arms. Over time, a warjack gains experience and may bond with its warcaster, taking on unique personality characteristics and developing new aptitudes.
