Find yourself in a fantasy universe where your success is determined by dice rolls. During the SKALD: Against the Black Prior, you step into the shoes of a character who, leading the team of six, intends to solve the mystery of the eponymous abbey and face the out-of-this-world threats lurking there.

Traveling the wilderness of Freymark and the Outer Islands, as well as descending into the depths of the dungeons spreading beneath them, you get to know the inhabitants of this land, carry out the tasks assigned and face opponents.

It is an old-school RPG with a turn-based combat system, inspired by the Cthulhu mythology and the 8-bit classic from Commodore 64.
