A Perfect Blend of Norse Myth and Sci-Fi Excellence

Rating: ★★★★★ (5/5 Stars)

"When The Wolf Comes" is an absolute gem! It’s a perfect blend of Norse mythology, alternate history, and sci-fi awesomeness. Here's why it's a must-play for me:

  1. Captivating Setting: WTWC offers an intriguing alternate history where the Vikings rule the stars, and the clash between old Norse traditions and modern beliefs is central to the narrative. It's a setting ripe for adventure and exploration.

  2. Diverse Worlds: The Nine Homeworlds provide a wide range of environments and challenges, making each adventure unique. Exploring these realms feels like embarking on an interstellar Viking journey.

  3. Mythical Encounters: Playing creatures like álfar, jötnar, and dvergar from futuristic Norse mythology adds depth to the game world. It's a fascinating blend of myth and reality.

  4. Magic and Technology Fusion: The game seamlessly merges magic, spirits, and technology, offering a unique and immersive experience. It's a world where these elements are indistinguishable, creating intriguing gameplay opportunities.

  5. Constant Urgency: The ever-present threat of Ragnarök keeps the tension high.

  6. Immersive World-Building: Ian Stuart Sharpe's attention to detail immerses you fully in the Vikingverse universe. You'll feel like a true Viking explorer in this meticulously crafted setting.

  7. Character Depth: Character creation is engaging, with diverse Norse origins and a variety of spells and gifts to choose from. Great character creation tables help spin up characters quickly, but with lots of depth and background.

  8. Seamless Adaptation: The adaptation of the "Shadow of the Demon Lord" system to this Viking-inspired universe is smooth and well-executed, offering a familiar yet fresh experience.

  9. Respected Endorsement: Knowing that the creator of "Shadow of the Demon Lord," Robert J Schwalb, gave his approval adds credibility to the game's top-notch quality.

In summary, "When The Wolf Comes" is a tabletop RPG that masterfully combines Norse mythology, alternate history, and sci-fi elements. It's a captivating universe that's well worth exploring if you enjoy immersive storytelling and richly detailed worlds. Gather your gaming group and embark on an unforgettable Viking adventure across the cosmos! May the Norns smile upon you! Skål!
