Og Dimma — a Væsen campaign
Vaesen on Fantasy Grounds
About the adventure
I am starting a Sunday fortnightly online campaign of Vaesen, the Nordic Horror RPG, as monster-of-the-week. The game is set in a fictional 19th century Scandinavia where the creatures & magic of folklore are real, but hidden to all but those with the Sight. This game deals with Gothic Horror themes, which include frightening depictions of death and the supernatural, as well as frank discussions of the exploitation and abuse of the common people of the 19th century. Secondary themes of industrialization, imperialism, religion, warfare, and the occult are also present. We'll be playing at 11AM Pacific time, every second Sunday. We use Fantasy Grounds Unity, you can use the free version for this campaign. The players use Discord for chat. It's a great opportunity to get out of your gaming rut & try something new. THIS IS AN 18+ CAMPAIGN. I have other sessions available for "all ages" and would be happy to have you there if you are under 18 years of age.
How to prepare
You will need a mic if you want to engage in the party Discord voice channel during play. We do not stream video. You will need to install Fantasy Grounds Unity before game time, you can use the free or demo version found here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/home/FantasyGroundsUnity.php
What I provide
I have the official Væsen ruleset and an Ultimate license for Fantasy Grounds Unity.
This game deals with Gothic Horror themes, which include frightening depictions of death and the supernatural, as well as frank discussions of the exploitation and abuse of the common people of the 19th century. Secondary themes of industrialization, imperialism, religion, warfare, and the occult are also present. During the campaign the PCs will investigate supernatural events and research ways to eliminate threats to public safety, through a monster-of-the-week format. Violence will not solve most problems the PCs are presented with, although they will often be in physical, mental, and emotional danger. Moral and ethical problem solving will be commonplace. The Game Master expects players to treat one another with courtesy at all times.
