Free League Publishing has released their award-winning RPGs, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying and Symbaroum on Foundry VTT. They invite you to explore the strange Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore of Vaesen and the dark fantasy world of Symbaroum, both filled with adventure on the virtual tabletop. These games will fill their catalogue on the Foundry platform after previously releasing, Tales From the Loop RPG, Mutant: Year Zero RPG, the official ALIEN RPG and Forbidden Lands RPG which are also available.
All the released game modules on Foundry are fully integrated with the VTT platform with online maps and diagrams, player handouts ready to share, and more. The Foundry modules are offered at a low introductory price, to invite previous owners of the physical products to try the virtual modules as well. For newcomers, the print & virtual bundles offers both in a competitive package. Please note that a Foundry base license is required to use the VTT modules.
VAESEN – NORDIC HORROR ROLEPLAYING
[Winner: BEST RPG People’s Choice at UK Games Expo Awards 2021]
In the shadows, something stirs. Strange beings. Twisted creatures, lurking at the edge of vision. Watching. Waiting. Unseen by most, but not by you. You see them for what they really are. Vaesen. Welcome to the Mythic North. A land where the myths are real. A cold reach covered by vast forests, its few cities lonely beacons of industry and enlightenment – a new civilization dawning. But in the countryside, the old ways still hold sway. There, people know what lurks in the dark. They know to fear it Vaesen.
Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying is based on the works of the acclaimed artist and author Johan Egerkrans and presents a dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore.
Also if you want to see watch some new players playing Vaesen, go over to the Team Zoom Zoom YouTube channel and have a look. If they can play it… anyone can. You can also find my review of Vaesen on this very website.
[ Best Game nomination at the Origins Awards ]
Brave adventurer, welcome to the wonderous world of Symbaroum. Explore vast forests in the hunt for treasures, lost wisdoms and fame. Visit the barbarian clans to trade or to plunder their treasuries. Establish a base of power among princes, guilds or rebellious refugees or survive encounters with trolls, dark-minded Blight Beasts and undead warlords. But whatever you do, never ignore the warnings spoken by the wardens of the forest: tread carefully and do not disturb the ruins of old, for the dark deep of Davokar is about to awaken in the dark fantasy game Symbaroum.
The Foundry modules are available as stand-alone digital products or in print & virtual bundles in the Free League webshop platform.
