Iskloft - Grim Viking 5E

Watermarked PDF

"Cattle die, kinsmen die. You yourself must some day die. Yet I know one thing which never dies. The judgement of a dead man's deeds." - Havamal. 

Iskloft. A frigid land of honour, brutality, greed and glory. Here, raiders sail the coasts, huskarls stand in shield walls, strange monsters lurk in the deep woods, and witches speak their curses. Jarls scheme in their longhalls, each trying to survive and even thrive in this harsh world. 

Iskloft is a viking themed setting for the 5th edition of the world's most popular roleplaying game. 

Inside Iskloft you'll find:

  • 180 pages of content, explaining the world, its customs, its people, and its new rules.
  • 6 classes. Play as the sacred Berserker, the stoic warrior Drengr, the world-wise wanderer Kyrrgangr, the warlord and commander Hersir, the shunned and hated Outlaw, or the mystical and powerful Seiðr.
  • Ninecultures, called Aettir, to replace race options. 
  • Culture specific feats, called Hefðir, including options that only the Drengr (the Fighter) can use, allowing them to specialise in combat forms.
  • 12 backgrounds, ranging from simple farmer or fisherman, to the disfigured, or the raiding viking.
  • New Mechanics! New skills, rules for traveling, new conditions, and rules for weapons degrading over time. 
  • New equipment, and powerful relics. 
  • Brutal Wounds. A critical hit brings dire consequences. Tables for lingering wounds for each type of damage, and for each location. This system is integrated into the classes, allowing some to deal particularly gruesome wounds.
  • Three entirely new magic systems: The songs of Odin, the power of runes, and the Nidðgaldr, which allows a caster to become possessed by spirits for power.
  • An adventure to bring you into the setting.
  • A bestiary, including many denizens of the world, and some of the strange and mighty monsters that lurk within it.

I can't post a review here because I backed this on Kickstarter and didn't buy it from this site, but if you like 5E and find the idea of a detailed viking setting interesting, then you really should buy this book! Lloyd put a lot of love and care into this over years of development from a homebrew setting to the published work you see now, and it all shows!

Original electronic
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.
