Be aware, the land of Vaesen is not as we know it today, this is a land where the myths are real. A cold reach covered by vast forests, its few cities lonely beacons of industry and enlightenment where a new civilization dawning. But in the countryside, the old ways still hold sway. There, people know what lurks in the dark. They know to fear it…

The Vaesen RPG Core Rulebook launched today on Fantasy Grounds and Steam, fully integrated with the VTT platform, with online maps and diagrams, player handouts ready to share, online character sheets, customized virtual dice roller, and more.
