This quick-start RPG adventure game has been designed for players who are new to the Fate of the Norns™ world and rune-based mechanics. This book is a stand-alone product that takes 2-6 players through the basics while they play through an epic adventure that is tied to the story of the iconic Volsung saga found in the Poetic Edda.
The sun and moon have disappeared from the sky. The worlds on the branches of the cosmic tree Yggdrassil have grown dark and cold. The gods and giants are on the brink of war. Mankind has descended into anarchy.
Welcome to the Age of the Sword…. Welcome to Ragnarok!
Fafnir's Treasure is a standalone Fate of the Norns™: Ragnarok saga that will bring 2 to 6 players deep into the dark age of Ragnarok.
