Listening to Meshuggah while typing this seems appropriate. Anyway, Free League Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for Vaesen, their new Nordic horror RPG. Scandinavia has a lot of tales and folklore, much of it dark and foreboding. Well, now all those horror tales are coming to life on your tabletops.
From the campaign:
In dark forests, beyond the mountains, by black lakes in hidden groves. At your doorstep. In the shadows, something stirs. Strange beings. Twisted creatures, lurking at the edge of vision. Watching. Waiting. Unseen by most, but not by you. You see them for what they really are.
Vaesen - Nordic Horror Roleplaying is a brand new RPG line from Free League Publishing. Written by award-winning author Nils Hintze (Tales From the Loop RPG) and based on the work of Swedish illustrator and author Johan Egerkrans, Vaesen presents a dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore and old myths of Scandinavia. The game mechanics use an adapted version of the award-winning Year Zero Engine.
The campaign funded almost immediately and so is working on stretch goals for the next 22 days.
