Herein lies the third – and best – edition of a game that truly scratches the itch for anyone who digs Viking-style fantasy.

“Forget Skyrim, play Fate of the Norns: Fafnir’s Treasure to roleplay as a Viking hero!” – Penny Arcade

Deep in the throes of Fimbulwinter, Viking heroes rise to the challenge to stem the dark tide that has engulfed Midgard. The sun and the moon have been devoured and the worlds on the cosmic tree Yggdrasil have been cloaked in a penumbral shroud. The gods are reinforcing Asgard for the coming fury of the giants. The war cry has echoed throughout every corner of the world: will you heed the call? Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok Core Rulebook is an all-inclusive game that will allow you to create customized characters who will embark on an epic saga. You will partake in a visceral and tactical combat system that rewards team-play and good strategy. Using the innovative Runic Game System, you will spin the tale of heroes and epic feats in a hostile world.

What you’ll find in Fate of the Norns: Ragnarok:

  • A role-playing game based on Viking sagas and folklore
  • A deep and engaging world with limitless possibilities for adventure
  • All rules needed to play the game, designed for 2-8 players
  • Mystical runes (included as printout and also available in semi-precious stone sets) for a game driven by the Runic Game System – no need for dice!
  • A choice of 15 different archetypes specializations for your character
  • A host of fearsome adversaries
  • A myriad of powers, spells, and skills that bring the characters and denizens to life

For those wondering what’s going on beyond the landscape of the Ninth World, here’s your gateway to the stars – Into the Night.

The people of the prior worlds reached for the stars. They engineered our world and others, opened doorways to other dimensions, and rewrote the laws of time and space. The remnants of these efforts litter the Ninth World, but they aren’t limited to Earth. Through the magic of the numenera left behind by the ancients, the stars can be plied. Craft sail the void as if it were an endless sea, intricately designed doorways open onto distant worlds, and even stranger means of travel beckon those who are bold enough to cross the vastness of the night.

Like the Ninth World, the realms beyond Earth are mysterious, majestic, terrifying, and filled with the unknown. Will you join the midnight pilgrims and discover what lies beyond Earth’s shores?

This book includes:

  • Dozens of locations on the moon, elsewhere in our solar system, and beyond—all as weird and imaginative as you’d expect from the Ninth World’s setting. Visit Branu’s Kiss, the Thon Iridescence, the wreck of the Vlerryn, the cloud cities of Urvanas, and the Swarmstar, perhaps the strangest sight in the void.
  • Multiple ways to escape Earth’s embrace. Climb the Beanstalk, explore the Nightcraft, or step through the World Door.
  • New creatures and NPCs, including the machine eater, the behemoth ulagra, and the murderous shadow of the void.
  • Dozens of new cyphers and artifacts.
  • New horizons of the imagination to fill your players with wonder and take your Numenera campaign to realms you’ve never before imagined!
