It’s no trick — Free League Publishing is offering a real treat for its fans this Halloween, Today and tomorrow only, the digital PDF version of their tabletop RPG Vaesen is free at DriveThruRPG.com.
Free League’s Vaesen RPG will be expanding soon with The Lost Mountain Saga, an adventure book that was actually written by a fan. Ellinor DiLorenzo, a writer and filmmaker in New York City. ran a popular podcast where she invented her own narrative within Vaesen. Free League heard it and was impressed enough to give her a contract.
Imagine if you made your own adventures for a mass-market tabletop RPG and its publisher liked those adventures so much they made it into a legitimate product. That just happened to Ellinor DiLorenzo, a writer and filmmaker in New York City. Though she’s currently a New Yorker she was born and raised in Sweden, which happens to be the region the Vaesen RPG takes its lore from (and where Free League Publishing is based).
Introduced in July of last year, Vaesen has become one of Free League’s more popular tabletop RPG offerings. Now it will soon be expanding to include adventures in Mythic Britain & Ireland, and the Kickstarter that launched today will make it happen.
Mark December 7, a date that will live in infamy, on your calendars…it’s when Free League will launch the Kickstarter for Mythic Britain & Ireland, the expansion to their Vaesen RPG.
As of today, there’s one more virtual tabletop (VTT) service you can play Vaesen and Symbaroum on. Free League has announced they’ve released versions of these two games that work on Foundry.
Last summer Free League Publishing released Vaesen, a tabletop RPG based in Nordic folklore and the old myths of Scandinavia. Today they’ve announced the game is officially available in virtual form, thanks to a partnership with Fantasy Grounds. Both the core game and its expansion A Wicked Secret & Other Mysteries are playable online, provided you have a Fantasy Grounds subscription or purchase a one-time license.
Despite the odds against them, Free League managed to get many games out there in 2020, and found success with some. The Alien RPG (based on the 20th Century Fox series) was released precisely a year ago and grew to become one of the most successful tabletop products of 2020. An expansion set, Destroyer Of Worlds, was released along with a Starter Set in the spring. A virtual tabletop version of the Starter Set was added to the VTT platforms Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds in October, and a second expansion was announced earlier this month.
