[ Winner of three Gold ENNIES - Best Cover, Best Art, Best Monster - at Gen Con 2021 ]
"Vaesen is a fresh and interesting addition to the horror/mystery tabletop genre and one with far more character than all the shoggoths and elder gods that usually hang out there." - Editors Choice, Comics & Gaming Magazine
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 Swedish artist and author Johan Egerkrans and presents a dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore and old myths of Scandinavia. The game mechanics use an adapted version of the award-winning Year Zero Engine.
