The Blood-Clans of Jorikk

Post by Big Mac » Sat Sep 27, 2014 9:22 pm

I just found out about something called "The Blood-Clans of Jorikk", which I think is a sub-setting of Kingdoms of Kalamar:
The Blood-Clans of Jorikk wrote:Kenzer & Company's nordic RPG campaign setting in the Wilds of Tellene. Grim heroism, bloody honor and epic deeds abound. RPG like a Lodbrok!
The Blood-Clans of Jorikk even has its own special website on the Kenzer & Co website.

Looks like this is coming out Autumn 2014.

Is this the same thing that Greylond said that Jolly Blackburn was working on in the Kalamar: The Unknown Lands of the North topic?

No, this is entirely different.
Blood-Clans is for the published area around Lake Jorikk, but the detail will be much greater.

Thanks George.

It looks like the Facebook description has changd:
The Blood-Clans of Jorikk wrote:Kenzer & Company's nordic RPG campaign setting in the Wilds of Tellene. Grim heroism, bloody honor and epic deeds abound. RPG like a Lodbrok!
I also see a Facebook group for The Blood-Clans of Jorikk.

And it looks like a Blood-Clans of Jorikk map has already been published, via Zazzle:

You can also see some of Galen Fiore's hand drawn maps on the Facebook page. And there is also something called the Saga of the Bear Folk, up on Galen Fiore's blog.

Welcome Wanderer
to the Blood-Clans of Jorikk!

The warrior-gods Falkkr and Vorr call you hence.

To take up your horn and fill it with ale, pour in also the blood of elk, wolf, and man,
and drink deeply in oaths of brotherhood, war, and vengeance.

The old heroes call you also, ashen-faced from ages long passed, to hear their legends sjald-sung in the mead-hall.

To feel the heart-stir of memories rekindled by a wolf’s howl.

Memories borne upon the deepening hum of a war-horn rung out in the dawn, and faded by the black stain of blood on a pebbled shore.

“We raise our horn to you, Wanderer.

May the yearning of spirit call you, and the pull of wanderlust bring you, unto a distant northern shore,
where man contends with fate and the gods for a name. Skrrol!”


This PDF is an introduction to the Blood Clans of Jorikk. As an RPG campaign setting, this grim landscape provides a Nordic home all but limitless in its scope and possibility. While integrally part of the greater HackMaster world of Tellene, the remote expanse of the Lake Jorakk Wilderness makes it possible to run a purely Nordic story with whatever Tabletop Fantasy RPG system you might like to use.
Indeed, these books have been lovingly written for any GM or Player wanting to sink their teeth into a setting inspired heart-and-soul by the myth and legend of the Old Norse and the Vikings.

Read the Saga and see if it's what you're been searching for...
So it looks like this is a Viking sub-setting for Kingdoms of Kalamar! :shock: :cool:
