Blood Clans of Jorikk Sourcebook (2015) - Is this official Kalamar?

Post by Havard »

Bloood Clans of Jorikk Official Website (Hosted at KenzerCo)

Blood Clans of Jorikk Products

As with .... Blood Clans of Jorikk is offered as one PDF per chapter instead of a collected sourcebook. These carry the Hackmaster Logo, but not the Kalamar logo, so I wasn't sure if this was a Kalamar product before I saw this:
While integrally part of the greater world of Tellene, the remote expansiveness of the Lake Jorakk Wilderness makes it possible to run a purely Nordic story, where characters need never cross paths with the mundanity of a more tame and "civilized" world.
Some of the intro pages to each chapter PDF carry some public domain art which made it look a bit like a fan made thing, but it is being sold at the KenzerCo website. OTOH, it does sound like a fascinating subsetting for Tellene.

Does anyone know if this is worth getting for a Kalamar fan? :)

Yes, it is official Kalamar. Since Kenzerco is the company that owns the rights to Kalamar and this is hosted on their website it is official.

I wrote about the Blood Clans of Jorikk setting, back in 2014. I think that might have been when it was first coming out.

Did you download Blood Clans of Jorikk: On Wild Lands and Wild Folk? That's a free 32 page introduction to the campaign setting. That tells you a fair amount about the setting.

You can also find out a bit more at the Facebook page (which I linked to in the other topic).

If you like Tellene...and you like Nordic stuff...then this would be totally worth having.

But the two areas seem to be apart from each other. I think you would need some sort of bridging mechanism (like the backstory of The Thirteenth Warrior) to explain how other characters got to the lands around Lake Jorikk. A sailing culture would probably be the best explanation for a crossover adventure.
