Amazons vs Valkyries

The daughters of Ares and the daughters of Odin have been locked in a blood feud since the dawn of the Mythic Age. Xenophobic, misandric, and hyper-violent, the Amazons drove the proto-Norse people from their homeland and nearly destroyed them. The children of the Aesir were saved when Odin fathered an apocalyptic death cult of warrior women and commanded them to preserve his people’s destiny. Thus began a genocidal war that spans the ages and touches every nation on earth. 

Amazons vs Valkyries is an alternate history adventure setting based on the Hellenistic Age where an ancient feud between two warrior cults drags the world into chaos.  

Epic wars, crumbling empires, and barbaric invasions reshape the map while new ideas disrupt old traditions. Chthonic beasts lurk in the ruins of Nineveh and giants hunt the Hercynian forests. Collectors from Alexandria scour the world for wisdom to fill their library’s vaults. Carthaginian warships hunt formarian pirates. Mercenary gnolls swell Pyrrhus’ ranks. Golems battle at Agrigentum. The abandoned cityscape of Babylon harbors savage creatures, ruthless bandits, and homicidal priests.

You already know the men of this era; Archimedes, Brennus, Diogenes, and Alexander. Now meet the women; Hypatia, Cynane, Aspasia, and Arsinoe II. These scientists, philosophers, and warriors need your help.

There are ruins to explore, artifacts to recover, and creatures to slay. Armies need to be defeated and malicious deities must be stopped.

Amazons vs Valkyries is historical fantasy roleplaying at its best. It offers breathtaking adventure and high verisimilitude in a war-torn world that is familiar and exotic, entertaining and terrifying.
