Free League Publishing has announced the expansion The Lost Mountain Saga for the ENNIE-awarded Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying. The Lost Mountain Saga is an epic campaign of five Mysteries, where you will explore ancient myths and old Nordic folk tales, get entangled in social intrigue, and encounter unspeakable horrors in every shadow as you travel across the Mythic North as you strive to uncover the truth.
The expansion is written by actor and podcaster Ellinor DiLorenzo and is based on the adventures from her original podcast The Lost Mountain Saga, but expanded and modified for the official release. The acclaimed artists Johan Egerkrans and Anton Vitus beautifully illustrated the hardcover book.
A pre-order has also been launched in the Free League webshop. This gives immediate access to the PDF ahead of the release later this year.
“As a Swede living in the United States who mostly plays with Americans, The Lost Mountain Saga was a way for me to bring everything that excites me about my own culture and customs to the table. From the sacred ritual of Swedish fika, to the often-romanticized Viking heritage, to some of our questionable political movements and of course, the terrifying creatures that used to haunt my dreams when I was a kid.” Says game creator Ellinor DiLorenzo.
“At the end of the day, The Lost Mountain Saga is a love letter to my home country Sweden, celebrating both the good and the bad, and a way for me to express my homesickness by sharing it with others. It’s suitable for anyone who likes their horror with an occasional laugh, non-Swedes, and Swedes alike.”
There is a lot to love about this latest expansion. Once again the artwork is stellar. Now with Ellinor DiLorenzo’s writing there may just be a whole new kind of flavour to the world.
As always, we are excited about what Free League Publishing has cooking.
