Vaesen Announces The Lost Mountain Saga Expansion
Vaesen is getting an entirely new expansion released, as the TTRPG will receive The Lost Mountain Saga sometime this year.
Free League Publishing revealed a brand new expansion is coming to the Nordic horror TTRPG Vaesen with the reveal of The Lost Mountain Saga. This new content will be an epic campaign of five Mysteries for your players to explore ancient myths and old Nordic folk tales. Throughout each chapter you'll have opportunities to become entangled in social intrigue and encounter large and terrifying horrors, as you make your way across the Mythic North, attempting to survive and find the truth. We don't have an official release date for the book beyond the idea it will be out sometime this year, but it's currently up for pre-order for about $37. We got more info on the expansion below.
"An ancient stone has been discovered in the dark caves of the Mythic North. Protected for thousands of years by creatures no longer walking this earth, these sacred stones were never meant to be found. However, as is the nature of human curiosity and greed, exploitation soon begins with little regard for potential risks or consequences. Vaesen: The Lost Mountain Saga is written by actor and podcaster Ellinor DiLorenzo and based on her original podcast with the same name but expanded and modified for this official release. The hardback book is beautifully illustrated by Johan Egerkrans and Anton Vitus."
