The Banner Saga

By |January 23rd, 2014|

Two years ago, the three of us at Stoic set out to make an epic viking game: The Banner Saga. We did, and people loved it, so we’re making another one. We won’t make a viking saga without the word “Saga,” and we don’t appreciate anyone telling us we can’t.

King.com claims they’re not attempting to prevent us from using The Banner Saga, and yet their legal opposition to our trademark filing remains.

We’re humbled by the outpouring of support and honored to have others stand with us for the right to their own Saga. We just want to make great [...]

Meet the Twins! Hogun and Mogun

By |January 2nd, 2014|

Hogun and Mogun are two identical twins. Their weapon of choice happens to be the axe. That happens to be the extent of their likeness as from that point onward they have different ideas on most things including battle. Despite both having differing opinions on almost everything they are still brothers and will always have each others back in battle.

Despite their smaller weapons, these two brothers are both adept at dealing a lot of damage to their enemies using their axes and their battlefield cunning as Thrashers.

Meet Tryggvi

By |December 19th, 2013|

Tryggvi is a well-known character in his town where he is mostly avoided due to his raucous nature. But, there’s no denying his weight in combat as a skilled spearman, and you’re a wise man to engage his services to fight on your side.

Well known in his home town, for being the guy you hope doesn’t sit next to you in the mead house, or is yelling loudly in the middle of the night or building a collection of spears far more numerous than most men would need in a lifetime. He spends a fair amount of time by [...]

Meet Sigbjorn

By |December 10th, 2013|

We just unveiled another character from the game — Sigbjorn, a drunken varl warrior who players will stumble (depends on their drink of choice) across.

As always the case you should never underestimate a varl warrior and the same is true for Sigbjorn as long as he’s sober.
