In the shadows, something stirs. Strange beings. Twisted creatures, lurking at the edge of vision. Watching. Waiting. Unseen by most, but not by you. You see them for what they really are. Vaesen.

Welcome to the Mythic North. A land where the myths are real. A cold reach covered by vast forests, its few cities lonely beacons of industry and enlightenment – a new civilization dawning. But in the countryside, the old ways still hold sway. There, people know what lurks in the dark. They know to fear it. Vaesen.

Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying is based on the works of the acclaimed artist and author Johan Egerkrans and presents a dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore.

ALIEN The Official Roleplaying Game

Space is vast, dark, and not your friend. This is the multiple award-winning official ALIEN -The roleplaying game. A universe of body horror and corporate brinkmanship, where synthetic people play god while space truckers and marines serve host to newborn ghoulish creatures. It is a harsh and unforgiving universe, and you are nothing if not expendable. Stay alive if you can.

The official ALIEN roleplaying game core rulebook was released in 2019 by Free League Publishing in partnership with 20th Century Studios. The game immediately sold out its first print run and swiftly entered the Top-5 list of best-selling tabletop roleplaying games in the fall of 2019. It won the ENNIE Award for Best Game 2020 and the People’s Choice Award for Best RPG at the UK Game Expo. The game is currently being translated into seven languages.

A doom metal album of a game. A spiked flail to the face. Light on rules, heavy everything else. MÖRK BORG is a pitch-black apocalyptic fantasy RPG about lost souls and fools seeking redemption, forgiveness or the last remaining riches in a bleak and dying world. Confront power-draining necromancers, skulking skeletal warriors and backstabbing wickheads. But leave hope behind – the world’s cruel fate is sealed, and all your vain heroic efforts are destined to end in death and dismay. Or are they?

The multiple award-winning MÖRK BORG RPG is created by Pelle Nilsson (Ockult Örtmästare Games) and Johan Nohr (Stockholm Kartell) and published by Free League under the Free League Workshop sub-label for independently designed games.
