Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok is set in the end times of Viking mythology. It guides the players to explore the four ages of Ragnarok and fulfil destiny to the final battle that is prophesied to occur on the plains of Vigrid. At the start of Ragnarok the sun and the moon are devoured by the celestial wolves Skoll and Hati. This plunges Midgard into darkness, and sets in motion three years of continuous winter called Fimbulvinter. As humanity fights to survive, morality breaks down, creating a very dangerous world.
A Viking's most glorious moment is to die with valour in the heat of battle. For if one does, the Valkyries will take the slain champion to the heavens so that they could fight by the sides of the gods and jotuns in the final battle before Surt baptizes the world tree in fire
How does it work?
It's a mix between a table top role playing game and a board game. One player runs the game as the "Norn", and the other players create characters that go on epic Viking sagas!
The design mantra is "easy to learn, long to perfect". The players can create a solid fun character in as little as 5 minutes, or take as long as they would like using optional build components to add personality, back-story and customizing the character build for optimal performance.
And it shall come to pass...
The Twilight of the gods nears,
Brother will kill brother,
Families sundered by incest,
Four ages afoot,
An Axe Age, A Sword Age,
Where shields are cloven,
A Wind Age, A Wolf Age,
Where the world falls,
No one shall be spared...
