Vikings, who doesn’t love them? Especially when you’ve got the team behind the awesome Qin: the Warring States RPG behind it? These guys are really good at researching a setting and conveying the mood and themes of a particular milieu so I’m certain that this will be a really good read. I’m definitely looking forward to doing a review of this book, or even a Let’s Study Series (maybe with Qin as well? now that’s an idea…)

“Hearing I ask, from the holy races,
From Heimdall’s sons, both high and low;
Thou wilt, Valtfather, that I well relate
Old tales I remember, of men long ago”
— Völuspa, stanza 1

Thus begins the saga of the Fate of the Northmen, the Prophecy of the Völva…

Yggdrasill is a game of exciting adventure in a detailed and fascinating setting from the team behind Qin: The Warring States RPG. Become a hero in the Scandia of
legend – intrigue, combat, quests, magic and mythic creatures await…!

As heroes in search of adventure, glory and immortality, you will take part in great battles which will lead you from the snowy plains of Jutland to the halls of kings. Perhaps your characters will become heroes recognised by Odin the Formidable himself in his feasting-hall in Valhalla, as he awaits the time of Ragnarök, the final
battle against the giants and their kin, which marks the end of the time of legends and of the Gods themselves.

Mercenary or hirdmen, berserkr or noble, prophetess or sorcerer, Fate will guide you through frozen fjords, deep seas, and monster-haunted forests. Skalds will sing of your exploits for centuries to come!
Men of the North!
The legend starts here!

Yggdrasill Core Rulebook is now available from RPGNow for only $24.99 or roughly PHP 1,125.00

  1. I bloody love vikings! Give me a game world that contains them, and I’ll do my best to try and play one. I like the comment about them being good at research though; vikings played a major role in my dissertation – mind you, so did the band Turisas – and sometimes it’s hard to turn off my inner historian when reading about something I studied extensively.

  2. Sorry for the double post, but remembered just after I left this site; if you like the idea of going viking, you couldn’t do much worse than pick a book called the Long Ships.
