Vikings - they invoked fear in the monks of England and fascination in the Victorians from that same nation. Raiders and reivers, explorers and merchants, the men from the North left no part of Europe untouched, and reached beyond, to lands only imagined or wholly unknown. Their imprint on European history is so strong, they have their own eponymous epoch. Dread warriors, they have been a staple of fiction and a paradigm of the barbarian. Is it any wonder role-players regularly turn to them for inspiration?
Kiss My Axe: Thirteen Warriors and an Angel of Death is a role-playing game of Viking adventure, interested more in the heroics of the sagas than the violence inflicted upon innocents. Based on the underlying system from Sword Noir: a Role-Playing Game of Hardboiled Sword & Sorcery and the Sword's Edge System, the mechanics have been altered to provide more vivid and exciting combat.
