Tribes of the North


Come explore the lands of the northern tribes! The realms of Germania and Norheimr are home to a collection of fierce tribes. Called “barbarians” by the people of Rome, the men and women of the north are actually proud people with civilizations reaching back into time immemorial.

Presented in this volume are 10 tribes of the northmen, from the Saxons to the Vandals, the Haleygr to the Swedes, and all those between. Also included are a collection of patrons of the people of the north, 21 spells, and 4 classes - Berserker, Frost Elf, Runecaster and Shaman.

Also included is a new system for projecting a character’s fate. Be forewarned though, that knowing too much about one’s destiny can be detrimental to mortals and trying to cheat fate is quite likely to bring disaster.

This volume is an expansion to the Pax Lexque campaign setting and is designed for use with the Dungeon Crawl Classics rule system.

Hi-resolution copies of the book's maps are available for free download here.

Hello; would this be the preferred Pax Lexque supplement if one were trying to include Dacians in their campaign? Or at least close enough with all the other tribe info included?

The Dacians are not mentioned in this volume, but rather are included in the original Pax Lexque Campaign Guide. This book does detail the Dacians' nearest northern neighbors, the Marcomann and the Vandals. It also has the shaman and runecaster classes, which would be usable for various tribal societies. So basically, it has some material which could apply to such a campaign, but the Dacians themselves are in the original campaign book, not this one.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
