They also found a land teeming with spirits of nature and mythic creatures.Mythic Iceland offers Basic Roleplaying players the experience of living and adventuring in the Iceland described in the Sagas and in Icelandic fairy-tales.In mythic Iceland, all the creatures of myth and all the magical aspects of life really do exist, and they play a major role in people's lives.
