Skaldic Sagas: Heroic Journeys in the Viking Age

Watermarked PDF

From the Fury of the Northmen, Deliver us

Skaldic Sagas: Heroic Journeys in the Viking Age is a roleplaying game rooted in the mythopoetic and cultural traditions of what is now called the Viking Age. Blending the history and the heroism found in the verses of Poetic Edda, Prose Edda, and Beowulf,  it tells stories rooted in real-world mythology and archaeology to serve as a vehicle for telling your own stories where kin and community are as important as battle and bloodshed.

Though a complete stand-alone game, Skaldic Sagas is compatible with The Hero's Journey Fantasy Roleplaying, Second Edition.

Reading through it now. Great game. I noticed the character sheets list an attribute called "Value." I can't seem to locate a Value attribute in the book, so I assume this is a typo? If not, could you give me a page number? It is entirely possible it's there and I'm not seeing it.

It appears to be an error in formatting we missed. Reduction Value on the column over is listed as Reduction (with no "Value" after it). We'll get it cleaned up soon. For now, just ignore it. There is no "Value" attribute.

I love that this is compatible with The Hero's Journey second edition! Is there going to be a POD of this? I'd like to have a hardback copy on my shelf next to The Hero's Journey.

I (Alan) did the layout, so while we'd love to do a POD, it's not immediately forthcoming.

Your preview is 1 page only and is the character sheet only..can you provide a better preview of the product for potential buyers?

It's been changed but it can take some time to repopulate!

The Preview is still just the Character Sheet.

It appears the quick preview corrected and the full had not. I submitted that.

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.
