In the year 874, the first Norse settlers set foot on Iceland. They were escaping war, poverty and the dissolution of their political freedoms in mainland Scandinavia. Their kin soon followed and claimed the empty lands, free from rulers and religious pressures, becoming lone farmers, determined to survive in this harsh new environment.

These are their stories.

In Sagas of the Icelanders, you'll play as an Icelandic settler between the end of the 9th and 10th centuries, also known as the time of the Icelandic Sagas. You'll struggle to balance upholding your honor and maintaining your freedom. 

Sagas of the Icelanders is a Powered by the Apocalypse role playing game where the rules constrain you according to the social norms, customs and literary tropes of the sagas and ask what you will you do with these constraints?

Will you honor history, or turn it aside?
