Vaesen: A Nordic Horror Weekend

Vaesen: A Nordic Horror Weekend

Jan 10 - Jan 14, 2024

Welcome to the Mythic North. Northern Europe of the nineteenth century, but not as we know it today. 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. Experience nineteenth century Scandinavian horror like never before on the world’s first virtual tabletop (VTT) built specifically for cinematic immersion and theater of the mind gameplay. Alchemy’s scene-based structure empowers gamemasters to tell incredible stories with animated environments, motion effects, ambient sound, and original music. Throughout the Nordic Horror Weekend event on Start Playing Games, you’ll be able to join experienced GMs (Gamemasters) ready to guide you through immersive mysteries within the Mythic North, regardless of your experience with Alchemy, Vaesen, or tabletop roleplaying games. Don’t miss out! Dive into this dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore and myths of ancient Scandinavia. Join a game on Start Playing Games today.
