Dark Fantasy Roleplay

Nordsaga is a tabletop RPG of gritty adventure based in a “Viking” Empire which stretches across an alternate Middle Ages Europe.

Featuring creatures from Norse mythology, runic magic, deadly combat, fluctuating sanity, deep career progression and a northern European setting, Nordsaga feels a lot like a Viking-flavoured Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, despite using normal six-sided dice in its “Year Zero Engine”.


Nordsaga is currently in an “Alpha” (unfinished) state. However, you can still take a look and even playtest the game. To get alerted to the next playtest phase, please sign up to my newsletter using the form below.
