Hello

I am considering getting the pdf but had a couple of questions.

1)When will the print version be released?

2)Is the game considered low or high fantasy?

3)Men and women can not be valued as total equals, as in real life, so is it reflected in the game? Like do males get a few more points in strength while females maybe a few more in personality? Not trying to sound sexist but there are differences and way back in history they were the standard society was built on. I play Call of Cthulhu and enjoy how the game is not politically correct..least for the 1920s game version and was hoping the same for Fate of the Norns. I am not saying women can not be fighters but hope this games does not turn out as another version of D&D or Pathfinder.

I already have a large group of players eager to try the game and I am sure most will like it and buy the books when released. Game looks amazing...

I can't answer about the print version, but from the Kickstarter updates, looks to be very soon. It is both low and high fantasy. There are many saga story hooks provided to run a more mundane campaign (well you need to swallow the pill that the sun and moon have been devoured!) and obviously the high fantasy campaign is there as there are adventures to be had in the other worlds (Jotunheim, Muspelheim, Asgard, Vanagard, Nidavellir, Alfgard, Svartalfheim well and maybe Niflheim if the Norn/GM is really creative)!

Well I think the authors became more politically correct over the years, because the 1993 edition definitely is filled with male and female roles, bonuses, etc. However the new edition has erased most of that, but some of it remains, keeping the world true to the mythology (ex: women are better at Seith Magic).

Definitely a wicked awesome game worth getting!
