Steam Thralls
Group Numbers: 17 [1]
Leadership: Loose federation
Goals: Establishing a local presence
Recruitment Policy: Contact us at the forum listed below
Contact: Privateer Press Forums UD thread [2]


The Steam Thralls are a small group of Warmachine players who were introduced to this game. Most of the current players are fairly dedicated players, some of whom had pretty much maxed out on levels.

The Steam Thralls are based in Lockettside but has been known to wander around the suburb exploring.

The name Steam Thralls came about after some discussion on the Privateer Press Forums UD thread. In the main, the name is chosen after the unique type of undead in the Iron Kingdoms RPG. It seems an appropriate name for a game about wandering undead, and has no bearings on the current life status of its members.

Folks, we do badly need help in Tompson Mall. I know a couple of us are there, but we need to reduce the Zombies from the outside and increase the barricades from the inside. Right now Zombies are using SE sector as a foothold in the Mall.
Once we have the Mall under control, we can start getting straightening out the situation in Guppey and Creeke.

Guppey is back in Survivor hands. Can someone retag the place please?
Swept through this afternoon. It's been retagged, for the moment, anyway. --Natalya Zveda 19:56, 18 Jan 2006 (GMT)
Thanks for the update! Haven't been out of the Mall since the 14th. Appreciated. -- Lynx7725 01:33, 19 Jan 2006 (GMT)
the Cheeke Building (our Necrotech resource) is under seige. Anyone available?

A major portion of the Steam Thralls' strength has returned to Lockettside to defend against the Undead incursion that is currently underway (in a disorganized manner). Our primary HQ is currently occupied by 11 Zombies, but personally that's a bonus and not a loss -- I know where there's a source of ready XP. :)
No need to get overly upset about the loss of Guppey -- it's not super-critical to our existance. We can get it back once the Zombies move over, or we can just hit-and-run until they die from it. -- Lynx7725 06:44, 9 Jan 2006 (GMT)

Please give comments on this. Thanks in advance.


The Steam Thralls are a loose group of players who are in the game mainly to enjoy it. We don't really have a pro-Survivor or a pro-Zombie policy; some of us have multiple characters on both sides of the fence, or have characters who have skills from both side of the fence.

We do however, have a strict "No unprovoked PK" rule; we are not in the game to grief others. We do look out for one another and there are documented cases where one Steam Thrall was PK'ed and another removed the blight from Malton.

Should any player believe they have been PK'ed by one of us, please either contact us at the contact link above or leave a message in the Discussion page here. We will try to sort out the issue, but please understand that it is all too easy for any player to impersonate (or deny) involvement in such activities.


The Steam Thralls do not have a strict admittance policy; any Survivor or Zombie can join. We don't have rules that require you to be fight the Zombie Hordes (if they exist) or kill the Fleshies; we just expect you to play in the spirit of the game and have fun. Heck, we've gotten some accidental Blue-on-Blue before. :)
