When I think of good old neighbor to the west action. excitement and adventure are not the things that first come to my mind but The Lion in Fimbulwinter manages to sell me consept of Sweden as setting for pulp adventures.
Hite has crafted this mini-setting with great depth, or at least feeling of such. There is atmosphere of impending doom, uncertainty and back to wall desperation in the post-serpentfall Sweden that main setting of devasted America I think lacks. This does not look like a post-apocalyptic western setting for plucky pioneer types that will repuild a nation and kick snakemonsters and KKK-klowns in the behind. It is still fun over the top setting like main The Day After Ragnarok and there is even a silly Pippi Longstocking joke in the mix.
I would really want to read more of material that Hite has published in Fenix magazine.
