This week we shared the cover of The Concert in Flames, our forthcoming supplement for Victoriana 3rd edition. Today we thought we'd tell you a little bit more about what you can expect to find inside it.

TheConcertinFlamesCover400

The Concert in Flames is the complete guide to Europe for the Victoriana setting, an alternate history of steam and magic. From the Rock of Gibraltar to the steppes of Russia, from a Kingdom of Giants to the Boot of Italy, this book is packed with information about the nooks and crannies of a fantastical Victorian Europe.

But that’s not all, for it also contains the titular adventure, a five-part, city-hopping adventure that takes the adventurers from Paris to Vienna, Budapest and beyond! There’s a continent-spanning conspiracy afoot that threatens to shake the very order of Europe and cast it down in flames – can the adventurers find out what’s going on and put a stop to it before it’s too late?

The Concert in Flames will be available to pre-order soon!

CBLheaderOver the past few months we’ve been making great progress on completing our first Kickstartered project, the Cthulhu Britannica: London box set. We’re right now sending our backers the PDF for Adventures in Mythos London, the third and final book that will feature in the box set, so thought it high time to have a closer look at what’s in the box.

CBL_threebooks550Firstly we have the Investigator’s Guide to London, which is a comprehensive guide to the capital in the 1920s. It contains, amongst other things, information on public transport, the bustling party scene, the people and a whole lot about the places investigators might go in the course of your adventures. Great for both players and Keepers alike, and packed full of maps and beautiful artwork.

Secondly there’s the Keeper’s Guide to London, which is strictly for the Keeper’s eyes only! This book is jammed full of ideas for running Call of Cthulhu adventures set in London, including new cults and Mythos threats, advice for capturing the unique feel of the city, a ready-made private club devoted to investigating the weird and wonderful, and a whole swathe of NPCs and plot hooks that you can use in your own games.

Finally there’s Adventures in Mythos London, which includes three complete, standalone adventures set in the capital city: Terror on the Thames, by Peter Wright, which has the investigators caught up in a night to remember on a boat trip down the river; Those Poor Souls Who Dwell in Light, by Call of Cthulhu 7th edition writer Paul Fricker, which concerns the sins of Reverend Leigh, a vicar who has come into possession of a potent artefact; and The Non-Euclidean Gate, by Mark Latham, which is all about what happens when seven pages from one of John Dee’s notebooks turns up unexpectedly.

CBLPosters550But that’s not all that will be included in the box set: we also have six sheets of die-cut, beautifully designed handouts for you to use in your games. Some of these are taken from the scenarios in Adventures in Mythos London, others completely new to inspire your own scenarios. There are also four poster maps, including a beautifully illustrated Macdonald Gill map of Central London.

Those of you who backed the Kickstarter – we hope to have the print version of the box set in your hands soon. And, if you didn’t back the Cthulhu Britannica: London Kickstarter, you’ll be pleased to know that the whole box set will be available to buy on RPGNow in the near future, and in a store near you in the new year.

As part of our in-depth look at Yggdrasill this week ahead of the launch of Kings of the Sea, we thought we’d take a look at the game’s first supplement, The Nine Worlds.

nine worlds cover600

In the shadow of Yggdrasill lies more than just the world of men. From the realm of the Gods to the dark domain of Hel, nine worlds stretch out across her roots and branches. Those who travel beyond the world of men had best be prepared. Dragons and Giants await; and neither the Gods or the Draugr take kindly to uninvited guests. The Nine Worlds takes you on a tour of the realms beyond mortal men. Each world is given a detailed description, including the creatures and Gods that make it their home, allowing you to take your sagas to new and fantastical lands. The supplement also contains three new adventures and a host of additional material for your games.

The Nine Worlds contains:

  • Fantastical new realms to explore, such as the domains of the duergar and the alfar.
  • New magic items.
  • New monsters to fight, from giants and the walking dead to sea serpents and dragons.
  • Three new adventures – Winter’s Fall, The Hunter and The Forgotten Oath, the continuation of the epic Yggdrasill campaign.
  • Four ready-made NPCs, complete with adventure hooks for GMs to use.

The Nine Worlds is available to buy in all good game stores now, as well as from our webstore or in PDF.

The Nine Worlds Extract

One of the kingdoms I strode along was Jotunheim, land of

the Jotnar. Whether they are storm giants or frost giants, cursed

be this race.” Harbard started. “May or send them back home,

to the East!” Bjorn and orbrand answered as one, laughing.

We thought that, with the anticipation building for Kings of the Sea, we'd explore one of our favourite games in more detail - Yggdrasill.

Yggdrasill_packshot

Yggdrasill is a roleplaying game of exciting adventure in a mythical Scandinavia. Become a hero in the Scandia of legend – intrigue, combat, quests, magic and mythic creatures await!

As heroes questing for adventure, glory, or immortality, you’ll take part in great battles from the snowbound plains of Jylland to the courts of kings. Perhaps your characters will be recognised by Odin the Formidable himself and taken to his feasting hall in Valhalla to prepare for the Last Battle between the Giants and the Gods – Ragnarök itself!

Mercenary or hirdmen, berserker or noble, prophetess or sorcerer, fate will guide you through frozen fjords, deep seas and monster-haunted forests. Skalds will sing of your exploits for centuries to come!

Heroes of the North! Your legend starts here!

The Setting

Yggdrasill is set in Scandia, the land of the three kingdoms of Denmark, Norway and Svithjod (modern-day Sweden), in the 5th century AD. It is set in the real world, but with the premise that all of Norse mythology is real – that our world, Midgard, is but one of the Nine Worlds that surrounds the world tree, Yggdrasill. Trolls and other fierce beasts lurk in the woods, there are duergar and alfar if you know where to find them, and there really is a realm of Giants and Gods.

You play Norse adventurers – Vikings, if you like – off to make your own legends and forge your own sagas. You might play a jarl, a noble in charge of your clan. You might play a berserker, a savage and formidable warrior fuelled by rage. Or you could play a volva, diviners and spellcasters who interpret omens and determine the fates of men.

Glory and riches await, for those bold enough to take them!

The System

Yggdrasill uses a quick and simple system, designed for fast-paced, exciting and heroic actions! It uses ten-sided dice – d10s – and each player will need between 5 and 10.

To make a test, a player rolls a number of d10 equal to his Characteristic. He then picks his two best results, adds them together along with a Skill and compares them to a target number (typically 14). If a 10 is rolled, the player may roll the dice again and add that to the total along with the 10.

There are two resources that a player may draw upon too: Fate and Furor. Norse heroes have a pool of strength and rage that they can draw upon to spur them onto greater deeds – this is their Furor pool, and they may expend it to roll extra dice in a test. Each character has a Fate, too, and if an action is linked to this somehow they may keep three dice, not just two.

Yggdrasill Core Rulebook

The best place to start your own heroic saga is the Yggdrasill Core Rulebook, which contains all the rules and background you need to play the game. It also contains six ready made characters and a complete adventure, which also starts off an epic campaign that runs through all the books in the series.

You can buy Yggdrasill in our webstore or in PDF.

The Nine Worlds

The first supplement for Yggdrasill, The Nine Worlds expands the setting beyond the realm of men to detail the other fantastical worlds, from the dark domain of Hel, to Jormungandr, the land of Giants. It also contains rules for magical items, profiles for both gods and monsters, and three complete adventures – including the next part of the campaign.

You can buy The Nine Worlds in our webstore or in PDF.

Kings of the Sea

This forthcoming supplement is all about adventure on the high seas, as heroes embark to explore and adventure on distant shores. As well as rules for naval combat, it also contains background on some of the lands beyond Scandia, from Finland to Germany. It contains two complete adventures – including the next part of the campaign!

CB7453Yggdrasill_Kings_of_the_Sea

We shared the cover for Kings of the Sea the other day, our forthcoming supplement for the Yggdrasill Roleplaying Game. Today we thought we’d take a look at what you can expect to find within it.

“I have been a helmsman
and a forecastle-man
and a leader
of all the warriors.”

Völsa þáttr stanza 12

In this new supplement, our Viking adventurers take to the sea in search of the coveted title ‘Saekonungar’ – King of the Sea! Pirate or trader, mercenary or master of your own ship, captain or pilot, the northern seas offer themselves up to those brave enough to claim their destiny, drawn by the salt smell of the wind and the crack of the sails.

In this supplement you will find:

  • New professions linked to the sea.
  • Information on the ships of Scandia.
  • Rules for naval combat.
  • Background on the neighbouring peoples, including the Angles and Finns.
  • The genealogy of the kingdoms of the north during the course of the ongoing Yggdrasill campaign.
  • An overview of the ongoing events across the kingdoms of Scandia.
  • The continuation of the epic Yggdrasill campaign with a multi-part adventure that sees our heroes setting out on their own in the world, getting involved in German politics, saving a colony from a ferocious Troll and racing against time to stop a terrible beast once bound by Thor from being unleashed upon the world.
  • A new stand-alone adventure that can be used on its own or as an interlude in the campaign.

Kings of the Sea! Here legends are born! Coming soon for Yggdrasill.
