Anyone playing this? Not canon Norse myth, but very norse-y and quite a bit of fun. I've been pondering how to construct most of it in FotN. Right now I'm thinking Varls are "Troll Blooded" with the badge rubbed off. Denizens of the North should fill out my requirements I think.

http://stoicstudio.com/ for those of you who are interested

http://stoicstudio.com/game-overview/races/ has the varl listed there. In game they are larger than humans.

I've been slowly playing my way through that as well. It has some great crossovers (especially since in that setting the sun has stopped, and they're plunged into perpetual winter). It's done a great job of sparking some ideas for stories or plot twists. It's also just beautifully done.

I'd highly recommend it for anyone looking to play some video games with norse flavor.

I was just able to see some glimpses at a friend, and aesthetically it looked awesome - his comments that the battles would get pretty repetitive after you "get it" and that the story was just the first part of a saga kept me from buying it for myself so far.

Would anybody mind giving a short review (especially from the viewpoint, that most probably everybody on this forum is more into Viking mythology as the average Joe) to more opinions ?
