noun. Any of the Scandinavian pirates who plundered the coasts of Europe from the 8th to 10th centuries.
This book contains a complete OpenD6-based roleplaying game of raiding, plunder, and longships.
Hero creation, warband battles, shipbuilding, trading, Gods, runes, omens, and visions are all included and provide every tool needed for almost any type of Viking-themed game, whether historical or mythical. Although this is a toolkit game, designed to allow you to run whatever sort of game you want and no setting is included, we do offer some campaign ideas such as Traders, Varangian Guard, Explorers, or the classic Sea Raiders.
The system is based on the classic OpenD6 ruleset, optimised and adapted for the specific genre, but easy to learn and fast to play.
So grab your axe and shield, leap into your dragon-prowed longship, and get raiding!
