Down and dirty background:
I'm a convert from another gaming system. I caught a glance at the original Mauler and immediately fell in love with the Trollblood line. I understand the ruleset, though admittedly have yet to play a game due to tyranny of distance from my friends who play as well. I understand from friends, the forums and Trollblood Scrum (shout out!) the gameplay nuances, advantages and disadvantages of Trolls, builds, synergy, etc. I've been piecing together a force via eBay and online retailers a little bit at a time and cannot WAIT for my first game.
However, although I have a general idea of what the Iron Kingdoms are (factions/gameplay wise), I'm lost on the intricacies of the fluff. I'd welcome any recommended reading for a total noob such as myself as far as the fluff behind the world PP has created. I have the MKII Rulebook, TB Book and Dominion, and assume I need to read the fluff portions (cursory glance given thus far) in that order.
As far as further reading, my time is a precious commodity right now. Is there a one-stop-shop "State of the Union" type site, wiki, book or anything beyond the cursory blurb on BattleCollege I can pick up that is a quick evening read? Three kids and graduate school eats most of my time!
