Dream Realm Storytellers were impressive with their harsh 5e setting of Vikings and gods with Svilland.
Increasingly, the way to tell two excellent Kickstarter projects apart is to measure what happens after the game’s release. Many tabletop gamers want their settings to be maintained, for the publisher to be active, to be adding and growing the world. That doesn’t always happen.
You can watch Freyja’s Tears here, with a Kickstarter alert page that’ll notify you when the campaign launches.
Freyja’s Tears promises to be different from many 5e adventures. For a start, DRS has options like of the Sacrifice Domain to tap into as the characters rally to Freyja’s defence against Hel.
The publisher notes that 5e adventures often don’t let parties know to get to know each other. The focus tends to be on the action. In response, Dream Realm Stories will offer rules for Warbands in Freyja’s Tears and provide relations charts, party traits and friendship boons.
Equally, to reduce the emphasis of character levels and challenge ratings, Freyja’s Tears will lean heavily into side quests and terrain so that the PCs can earn advantages necessary to overcome powerful foes.
