Suffer the Witch

A group of Vikings cast ashore find a village stripped of its warriors. The chieftain speaks of a witch, once a wise woman of the village, now bitter and flushed with hatred. The village suffers under her curse, and he has lost many men in attempting to free it. He cannot risk any more.

And these adventurers, lately come from the sea, lost and in need of aid? Can they save the village of Kalved?

Suffer the Witch, an adventure for the Viking RPG Kiss My Axe: Thirteen Warriors and an Angel of Death, was created for Gen Con 2011. It is a challenge for 4 – 6 starting characters. Pre-generated characters are included, but the adventure can be run with any newly generated Kiss My Axe character. While the adventure does not require the use of Kiss My Axe, the narrative characters and some situations are based on that system and would require modification to use with another system.

Monthly Sales for December 2011

Well, the year is at an end. December wasn’t too bad of a month for SEP thanks mainly to the release – late though it may have been – of Kiss My Axe: Thirteen Warriors and an Angel of Death. KMA itself didn’t perform anything near as well as Sword Noir in its first couple of weeks. This is likely in part due to being released the week before Christmas. While I actually expected less of KMA than Sword Noir, I have to admit to being a little disappointed in its performance. My interest in developing Centurion: Legionaries of Rome wanes, though I might look at putting the research to work in some other fashion. The effort to compile that research, though, is a sunk cost, and I shouldn’t let a sunk cost drive a decision.

Small note: the numbers for Sword Noir had been skewed by print copies sent out for review and those provided as comp copies. The new total is correct and reflects only those copies sold.
