Heavy Metal Scifi Viking Apocalypse Action

High quality book with fantastic art and a terrific rules light RPG built in. The background info for the setting ( the fluff) is detailed enough to inspire but still leaves plenty of room to mold it and make it your own.

The digital copy also came with a "Hackers Core" ruleset for folks wanting to use the rules to hack and homebrew their own setting using the Viking Death Squad game mechanics.

Overall, I'd give this book a 12/10. If you are into RPGs this is a worthwhile book to have.

Innovation and Heavy Metal

A pleasure to read, a pleasure to play. The lore is metal and easy to understand. The ruleset is concise and robust. The gameplay has a perfect dichonomy between the combat and skill system, despite both are based on d6.
Very solid choice for running killer one-shots, but it has enough depht to build a whole campaign on it.
Hankerin's style both innovative and easy to understand, the perfect combination.
And I cannot go around the ArtStyle! 150+ handdrawn art, and all of them are inspiring and evocative! You have to be focus not to loose yourself in the art. :)

10/10 a must have piece for RPG enthusiasts

More metal than Mork Borg

Amazing game by Runehammer that reimagines the d6 dice pool system in the ultimate post-apocalyptic setting. The GM advise along is worth the price of entry, the amazing setting and rule set are just icing on the cake. A must buy.
