Re: The Awakening of Isarnsida

We played using the TC rules, since this was at a convention and I didn't want to bring the TA rules outside the playtesting group at that stage. We used the stats for Jarnwurm found in Jorgi's Bestiary, though I scaled it down, due to its weakened state. The Wurm could only use its breath weapon on...

Re: Media

I really like Amon Amarth, and when writing Runes of Memory I couldn't help but include a reference to one of my favorite songs by them.

There are also a few other nods in RoM to other metal bands, though perhaps not as obvious as the one to Amon. 🙂

Re: Language of weapon names

In ancient Norse (norræn tunga) which was spoken in Scandinavia during the...

Re: The multiverse of Trudvang

As far as I can read in the published English material, there are two planes adjoining Trudvang, Bloodheim which is the realm of demons, and Dimhall, which is the realm of the dead. You can enter Dimhall via Dimgates, which can be found in fogs all over Trudvang. Demons are usually summoned to Trudv...

The Awakening of Isarnsida

This weekend we had a small gaming convention here in Iceland and I ran a short narrative called The Awakening of Isarnsida. I had 5 great players who took on the roles of 5 heroes from Hawen in Vortland. I created the heroes and each had 1000 creation points, which I believed was more than enough t...

Re: Combat

Well, when I run large monsters, I like to have their size matter and have the following house-rule: It's hard to parry the blows of large creatures and they ruin armor fast. The creature size represents the difficulty of the parry and the damage armor sustains as well. In other words, if a player c...
