The Skorne are a brutal warrior people from beyond the massive Bloodstone Desert located east of the Iron Kingdoms. Skorne began their invasion of the Iron Kingdoms only a few decades ago, and the longer the war is protracted the more of their military is being mobilised from the great city of Halaak, a large desert city built on the blood and lives of slaves.

The goal of the Skorne empire is to conquer and enslave all other nations in Immoren. After a failed attempt to conquer Cygnar, they turned their attention to Ios with mixed success and have since set their sights on the Protectorate.
