Berserkr. Ferocious and powerful, wade into battle with no armour upon your back, wielding a massive two-handed sword and call upon the power of beasts to strengthen your attacks.
Pyre. Shape flame as a blacksmith shapes iron, calling upon ravenous fire to burn and purge and channel primal forces through your own two hands.
Balance favour and sorrow or read the runes to guide your way solo through a pre-written adventure, or conjure a random dungeon crawl with the delve generator.
Navigating the world of Nine Realms can be a lonely endeavour, but thankfully there are kindred spirits available to assist with jolly cooperation.

Thank you for such an awesome game - I loved reading Runecairn and it’s on my list of 2022 games to get to the table. And the layout is lovely too.

This is a quality game, adapting Cairn to an apocalyptic Norse setting with a greater emphasis on arms, armour and combat without losing the deadly and considered tone of the its forebear.
