  • The Northlands Saga Complete This GIGANTIC tome clocks in at 795 pages if you take away editorial, ToC, etc.. No, that is NOT a typo. While I was a backer of the kickstarter that made this book, I was in no way involved in the production of this epic tome.   All right, so the introduction tells us a bit of what this is: A take on Norse adventuring, with a healthy dose of the weird, fantastic and sword & sorcery sprinkled in. It should be noted that the 8 pregens from the Player’s Guide, as well as the excellent “Winter’s Teeth” stand-alone module from the “Long Winter’s Night”-series are included in the back of the tome.   Okay, so […]

  • The Long Night of Winter: The Drowned Maiden (PFRPG/OSR) The series “The Long Night of Winter” was conceived as supplemental material/optional tie-ins for the massive Northlands Saga, but each of the modules can be run as a stand-alone module as well. I backed the kickstarter for Northlands Saga back in the day, but otherwise was not involved in this project.   This module is intended for levels 9- 11 and is set in the eponymous Northlands of Frog God Games’ Lost Lands campaign setting. It does translate well to other fantasy campaign settings, though.   This being an adventure-module, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players should jump to the conclusion. … .. . There are multiple ways to immortality – […]

  • Northlands Saga Player’s Guide (PFRPG/OSR) This Player’s guide for the massive Northlands Saga Player’s Guide clocks in at 50 pages if you ignore SRD, advertisement, editorial, etc. My review is based on the dead tree version, which comes as a nice softcover. I was a backer of the Northlands Saga kickstarter, but other than that not involved in any way with this project.   So, how do we start? We start by contextualizing the Northlands and their myths – inspired by real life mythology from Scandinavia, a central leitmotif and proposition of the series was to get the feeling of the Northlands right – and, indeed, flavor-wise, the pdf begins pretty much from the get-go to do just that, presenting […]

Morninghaven sanatorium, constructed in the heart of the Creeping Mire, founded by the church of Mitra and headed by the prestigious Osterklieg family had for some time had its reputation decline, even as a place to lock up the criminally insane.
