Viking Saga Updated

I have updated my rules for Vikings and ported them over to the Labyrinth Lord. These rules are intended to be used in the Ivinia (Harn) setting. So I dropped the Halfling class and updated the weapons and armor section to be more reflective of that "Dark Age" type environment.

You can find the new Viking Saga player's guide here, or on my download sidebar.


  1. It seems fun. The only error that I've found while skimming the text is that the Thane ability class Leader of Man is doubled in the description of the class.

  2. Very impressed with the layout you have there, and the class descriptions are great. One question, the extra languages known for high intelligence are negatives (-1,-2,-3). Typo or did I miss something?

  3. Have you looked at the Vikings AD&D 2e sourcebook? It's perhaps the best treatment of the Vikings for D&D.

  4. Do you plane to release a second edition of Ruins & Ronin any time soon, Mike?

    Sorry to post this here, but I couldn't find any contact from or email address.

    1. Hi John,

      Haven't thought about it. What would like to see in a 2nd edition?

    2. I would like to see more specific classes, more Asian-themed monsters (e.g. from the 3e OGL Oriental Adventures) and maybe one or two mechanical changes like option to drop ability scores altogether (as they have little impact on the game). I'm working on my one hack actually, as far as the OGL allows it.
