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.
Soon you’ll be able to play Ellinor’s Lost Mountain Saga in your own home. The adventure book contains the full campaign of five Mysteries from the podcast storyline, along with new, expanded and modified material, presented with illustrations by acclaimed artists Johan Egerkrans and Anton Vitus.
Free League has also released episodic descriptions for all five chapters in the Lost Mountain Saga. Here’s a summary of them:
Chapter 1: DUTY AND DESPAIR

Chapter 5: THE LOST MOUNTAIN SAGA
