More Campaign Reports

These campaigns are full up, but

loomed out of the mists of Ragnarok we just wanted to warn you what to loot and destroy, bands of men of sick minds are up to out there: Denmark would take to the high seas

Baleful Tidings - Alex Jones, GURPS

This campaign has been described as “somewhat unusual.” This is probably something of an to understatement. The party: an “Indiana Jones” from a Shadowrun a maths professor who Vikings to prove their bravery, to has recently discovered rune-magic; a - - ,lease the Old Gods, to reach their trigger-happy private eye with strong views on local government, and a blacksmith from the Highlands… They’re trying to save Earth from the paranoid, megelomaniac, blood-drinking Bales. Unfortunately, they’re on Yrth, with no idea where to find their enemy, although they’re closer than they were when fighting Terradyne security or learning how to fly on Flight 13…

Vikings-Helen Steele, Runequest

In the Dark Ages, before Christianity had spread to the north of Europe, when the Viking longships loomed out of the mists of Ragnarok to look and destroy, bands of men of Denmark would take to the high sees and the rivers in search not only of fortune but honor. Controlled by fate, they venture out, to kill or be killed, to trade, to discover new lands, fight honourably and die a Viking – sword in hand. Is it fated for our type world; to reach their goals, to make it home?
