It's that time again! :)

No pics from public games, so I'll be picking someone who has been helping out in keeping the community supported & informed- Raleel

You do a great job answering questions and fostering great discussions about RGS rules. A truly model veteran player! Now I think you have everything already, so I'll send you something special via PM later today.

DarkPi, if you have pics, post em up since the next evangelist awards will be in June!

For the more tech incline, I ,with Andrew permission, setup a Discord server. Use this invite to access it : https://discord.gg/pegSBZd.

If you have any question or just want to write / talk about the game or the system do not hesitate to come join us on discord.

For those that are asking what is Discord, here it an extract from their site :

It’s time to ditch Skype and TeamSpeak.
All-in-one voice and text chat for gamers that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. Stop paying for TeamSpeak servers and hassling with Skype. Simplify your life.



p.s. : If needed you can also @Lanord#7877 me question about discord or FotN:R. I've been a Norns for 2 years and a beta tester with Andrew for more then a year

Hey everyone. I'm new to the community and to GMing in general. In fact, this is my first time. I love this book and I love this system, and I'm so stoked to start sharing my Sagas with you all.

May the challenges never end, may glory be ever present, and may the blood flow like the sweet, sweet mead that flows from Heiðrún's utters. Skål!

I have a game and hobby shop nearby, and 2 branches of our county library near me. Once I get a hang for the system, I think I'll start doing public demos. Any advice o public gamea/demos?

First would be to have fun. Then ask your players what they expect of the session so you can adapt to them.


I've been doing the Montreal Con circle for almost 2 years. You will have lots of fun with lots of strangers that have from no experience to more then 30 years of difference. I'm a Norn for more then 2 years of home gaming also.

If you have any questions do not hesitate.

FOTN Evangelists: Session P1

Post by Vitotaylor36 »

I was told to share stories to the forum, so here goes.

Practice 1:
We settled on our characters, starting levels, and what kind of story we'd play. Our group consists of an Eater of Eyes Ulfhednar, a Wolfen Ulfhednar, a Skald, a Maiden of Ratatosk, and a Galdr. Made some house rules, agreed to a wound track difficulty setting, and ran a one shot practice session. Starting in the Mead hall of the local Jarl (our Galdr because rune draw), our skald (a town guard) dunks himself into a barrel of Mead and downs half of it, while our Jarl cheers him on. Our Maiden (a hermit) sits alone in a corner, drinking the round of mead the Jarl bought for everyone. Our EoE Ulf (the Jarl's Karl because rune draw) watches in abject horror as a ridiculously drunk Skald guard belches so hard he shatters a window. The Jarl gets him a tonic to sober him up, causing him to projectile vomit into a bucket so hard that it pushes through the slats, making a fine Mist fly out of the back end. The Jarl goes outside to inspect his frozen village, and grabs our party to help him clean up some of the frozen dead and have a funeral for them. During the funeral, a warrior runs in, bleeding, badly injured, and informs them of a small wolf pack that decimated their band. He was a sole survivor, and barely made it out alive. The warband decides to investigate, and they are ambushed by 3 Ulfhedin. After a few short moments, and a flaming whip of death from the Galdr, all three Ulfhedin lay dead at their feet. They returned home and celebrated their victory.

This was really our session to get familiar with abilities, see if we wanted to modify and mechanics, etc. We made some slight changes, like moving cleanup to the beginning of each players turn, instead of at the end of the combat round (flow just felt better). Otherwise it was a lot of flipping through the book to figure shit out.

Raleel and I are currently talking up FotN over on The RPG Site forum on a thread asking about games where mechanics and setting work together in synergy.

Makes me wish I was running FotN now.
