Mythic Iceland Sourcebook

“In mythic Iceland, all the creatures of myth and all the magical aspects of life really do exist, and they play a major role in peoples lives. The elves, or hidden folk, exist hidden from the eyes of the common folk, and sometimes meddle in their affairs. Those traveling through the highlands risk being attacked by trolls, and often curses and spells are laid on neighbors and enemies.”

This source book includes information on the history and livelihoods of the people of Iceland during the Viking times with chapters on life, law and government and religion. As well as this the hidden folk are revealed as well as looking into how to play a Cthulhu game in the harsh frosts of the North. After all, Cthulhu isn’t just around to spoil your Victorian adventures.

With an interesting spin on myth, legend and adventure might this be the quest for you?
