Blood Feud is a game about toxic masculinity: certain common attitudes and behaviors among men, that cause great harm to them and to others around them. This is a game about people being nasty to each other and about figuring out why.

It’s also a game about vikings of pre-christian Scandinavia; about honor and blood feuds, courage and brutality, corruption and consequences. Above all it is a game about what it means to be a man in such a world—and what consequences that has on the communities they live in.

The goal of the game is to explore and experience toxic masculinity, while at the same time creating a thoughtful drama about relationships, competition and social consequences. With this game we want to make toxic masculinity easier to spot for a wider variety of people in our roleplaying communities—and encourage critical discussions about how men behave, and why.

Brilliant! Frankly, gaming should always combine social commentary and personal enrichment ... not in a club-you-over-the-head manner, but not so subtle as to be missed either. It requires finesse. Well and timely done.


Thank you so much for the kind words! That’s very much what we were going for, so we’re very happy that was your experience.


Man, Viking Blood Feuds are, like... the perfect avenue to explore the concept of toxic masculinity.


Thanks! We heartily agree.


What a great game! Our RPG book club podcast just recorded an episode about it. https://anchor.fm/aaron-king2/episodes/RTFM-Blood-Feud-e1vl7v2


That’s awesome! We’re big fans of the show.
