Our 11th Kickstarter - "Creatures from Fairy-Tales and Myth" will come in 3 book formats: (1) an illustrated story book for those who love to read about mythic creatures... (2) a bestiary book for the Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok role-playing game...  (3) a monster manual for the DnD 5e RPG using the open gaming license (OGL).

...if you love the stories by the brothers Grimm, the Icelandic Sagas, or works by Andrew Lang or Alexander Afanasyev, then please read on...

 This book is for those who love to read fairy-tales, sagas and myths. This is not a game book (scroll down for the 2 game books).

This is a brand new lore book for the Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok game system.

Take a look at this sample preview of the FOTN edition:

This is much more than a monster manual for your 5e d20 game (using the OGL).

Andrew Valkauskas is a published author, game designer, and Viking. He has been designing games since the early 90's (first computer games and then table-top RPGs) and publishing short-stories and mythology books for the last few years. His passion for history, mythology, and gaming has brought researched lore into the table-top game milieu.

Andrew's recent projects include the Illuminated Edda, a modern and authentic retelling of both the prose and poetic Eddas (Scandianvian mythology). He is the creator of Fate of the Norns, a table-top RPG series that uses a revolutionary rune-based game engine instead of dice. He was the designer behind Gulveig the card game, and was the producer behind Vanagard the brand new collaborative story-telling game.

Having played every edition of D&D since the late 70's, Andrew is eager to contribute a manuscript to this hugely influential game.

As with all of our previous book-based kickstarters, we will be using print-on-demand fulfillment. This has proven to shorten the wait time and lower the cost- which adds savings for our backers. Our partner DriveThruRPG has North American and EU fulfillment centers making shipping much more affordable. With all of the trade disputes going on between nations right now, it is the safest way to guarantee drama-free delivery.

Risks and challenges

This is our 11th Kickstarter, so we'll be on top of things throughout the delivery cycle. We commit to monthly updates with every one of our Kickstarters.
