VAESEN RPG Launched on Fantasy Grounds & Steam - The Mythic North Awaits You
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 – on your virtual tabletop! The acclaimed Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying and the expansion A Wicked Secret & Other Mysteries by Free League Publishing have launched on Fantasy Grounds and Steam. Now, you and your team of investigators can discover the horrible secrets of the Mythic North from the comfort of your home.
Note: In order to play Vaesen on Fantasy Grounds, an active subscription or a one time purchase of a Fantasy Grounds Full or Ultimate license is needed.

Be aware, the land of Vaesen is not as we know it today, this is a land where the myths are real. A cold reach covered by vast forests, its few cities lonely beacons of industry and enlightenment where 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…
The Vaesen RPG Core Rulebook launched today on Fantasy Grounds and Steam, fully integrated with the VTT platform, with online maps and diagrams, player handouts ready to share, online character sheets, customized virtual dice roller, and more.
Vaesen is written by praised game writer Nils Hintze (Tales from the Loop, Things from the Flood), based on the work of the acclaimed illustrator & author Johan Egerkrans. The game offers a dark Gothic setting steeped in Nordic folklore. The game mechanics use an adapted version of the award-winning Year Zero Engine created by Free League Publishing.
Vaesen – A Wicked Secret & And Other Mysteries offers four strange mysteries: The Silver of the Sea, A Wicked Secret, The Night Sow and The Song of the Falling Star. The adventures are all playable on their own or as a part of a longer campaign for brave investigators that dare to stare into the darkness.
