• The Illuminated Edda
An illustrated mythology book which recounts the Prose and Poetic Eddas of the Vikings in their entirety. The Illuminated Edda also includes 6 other authentic mythologies from Viking age adjacent cultures. This is a companion book to “Lords of the Ash” when presenting lore for the Fate of the Norns™ universe. The Illuminated Edda includes a stand-alone narrative story telling game that utilizes the runes. RGS-Prime is great for ages 6+ and the game can be run in 30-60 minutes (no other books required).


The Viking tales of gods, giants and heroes come alive within the pages of the Illuminated Edda. Visit the majestic city of Asgard- home of the gods. Fight legendary dragons alongside Sigurd, renowned hero. Witness the creation of the world tree Yggdrasil along with the awesome worlds that hang upon its branches. Get entwined in Loki’s schemes as he saves the gods from disaster, and then witness as he makes matters worse.

The Illuminated Edda contains a brand-new translation of the Poetic and Prose Eddas by Andrew Valkauskas. This illustrated transla-tion has been rewritten using contemporary prose making it a pleasure to read. Get the authenticity and truthfulness of the stories without having to worry about the complexity of older academic translations. These faithful works have been painstakingly ordered into a chronology that offers a compelling overarching storyline. All the gaps in the narrative have been rounded out with the author’s own tales involving the heroes and villains of the Viking age.

Over 442 pages are devoted to the exploration of the ancient beliefs of the Viking age. Every page is illuminated with unique evoca-tive art. Barriers are shattered as adjacent mythologies are explored in conjunction with the Norse myths. This offers a new and unique view into what these mighty explorers may have faced as they raided and traded with their neighbours. The Illuminated Edda contains…
