I take on the first volume of the Gods of the Forbidden North mega-adventure. The tale is the first of a proposed three volumes and is designed for use with Old School Essentials Advanced Fantasy but you can certainly utilized nearly any OSR retroclone and even some NuSR roleplaying games with relative ease. This adventure is also aimed at six to eight player characters beginning at 1st level.

The Kickstarter to bring the second volume to the public has fully funded and runs through March 28th, 2024

  1. Have just backed the kickstarter for volume 2 (and volume 1) on the back of this review, even though it’ll be years before I get to run it (Traveller’s Pirates of Drinax and CoC’s Masks of Nyarlathotep to get through first, and I’m not the only GM in my group).

Gods of the Forbidden North: Volume 1 Reviewed

Gods of the Forbidden North: Volume 1 is a fantastic tale for OSE Advanced Fantasy and is overflowing with content. The adventures and dungeons are well tailored and the information provided is always concise and never just drags on. The production quality is very good and this first volume will keep players busy for a long time. I will say all of this might overwhelm some GMs and players while also being too much of a good thing for those aren't interested in the long haul of OSR adventuring. This is a must own if you're running OSE Advanced Fantasy!
