Alien Module 2: Vargr

Postby Twin Agate Dragons » Sat Aug 29, 2009 4:43 am

Callously viewed by other races as thieves, vagabonds and pirates, the wolf-like Vargr are a complex and varied race whose society is light years beyond their stereotype. Alien Module 2: Vargr peels back the layers of prejudice to reveal a fascinating race who have a powerful effect on their region of the galaxy.

This book is packed with information for both players and referees. New rules for careers allow players to create their own Vargr characters, which are then well served by technology and ships designed by and for the Vargr. Chapters are devoted to playing a Vargr and how their society and culture are structured. Finally, we have also included a complete sector to explore, meshing seamlessly with the Spinward Marches – the Gvurrdon sector.

I'm totally stoked on this. 8) November can't come soon enough!

Kewl kewl. Another book that aims to change the way we view the Vargr.

Of course Humaniti would probably see the Vargr as being thieves and vagabonds. It could be entirely likely that the Vargr they encounter are thieves and vagabonds - which is why they're nowhere near civilised Vargr territory in the first place ...

I wonder if Roger Myhre's work on the Gvurrdon sector will find its way into the book?

No it won't. But rest assured that Gvurrdon sector is getting the full treatment :)

Really looking forward to the Vargr book. Aslan are interesting, but I've ALWAYS been a big fan of the Vargr!

We just had to put our Blue Heeler to sleep and we are going to get a new dog in a month or so...

I am trying to convince my wife that "Vargr" would be a good name fotr the new dog.

Sorry to hear about the dog, been wanting to get a Blue Heeler myself here recently just can't find a good rescue joint or kennel in my area for them.

Vargr, btw, is an EXCELLENT dog name.

We are in collusion then! Someone needs to get a Dog, Name it vargr, then post the picture next to the new Vargr book for Proof!
