Tabletop Gaming Guide to: Vikings

Selected Option:

***If purchasing the printed copy, make sure you choose the Print + PDF option, otherwise you won't get the How to Use supplements.***

There is a mass of land in the northern reaches of Europe that we’ve come to know as Scandinavia. Although the term is little more than a convenience for referring to multiple places and people, it is the land that comprises much of modern-day Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. It has played host to a Germanic culture for thousands of years, including the ethnic groups we refer to as Danes, Norwegians, and Swedes. Often called the Nordic countries, these lands also hosted one of the most ruthless inhabitants in history – the Vikings.

Tabletop Gaming Guide to: Vikings is a sourcebook that delves into the history of the Norsemen we refer to simply as Vikings. From local chieftains to pirate raids to unifying kings, the lands of Scandinavia and the Norse people that lived there were surrounded by action and adventure.

Tabletop Gaming Guide to: Vikings includes:

  • A history of the Norse people.
  • Lands inhabited by the Norse people.
  • A look at the religion of Odin.
  • Lengthy timeline of the Viking Age.
  • A timeline of events.
  • Adventure frames.
  • ... And more!

Tabletop Gaming Guide to: Vikings can lay the groundwork for a historical or alternate history adventure set within the lands of the Norse people. It can also be used as a guide for creating Viking characters within your games.

Tabletop Gaming Guide to: Vikings includes the following How to Use guides for incorporating the source material quickly into your games:

  • Savage Worlds (SWADE-compatible)
  • Entropic Gaming System (EGS 2.0)

This looks interesting, but what's up with the woke cover art? Big turnoff.

The book focuses on the historical aspects of the Viking era. The religion is a view of how it was written as being a part of the everyday life in Scandinavia. None of it is required; you can easily pick and choose what you want to include in a setting or Viking character.

It is still readily available. I think something happened during DriveThruRPGs last sale that altered the POD settings.

Which version of Savage Worlds is this for? Not cuz I'm not going to buy it (I will once I scrape up the pennies) but how much work I'll need to adapt it.

This version is compatible with Explorer's and Deluxe editions. It has not been updated to SWADE yet.

If I knew this was coming out printed. I definitely would have waited the buy the combo. Can I get a partial refund instead of paying 5 + 7.99?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
