An RPG on Scandinavian mythology, where you play as magical specialists who investigate supernatural disturbances. Apart from the rules, it includes a detailed setting guide and a sample scenario. I love how the game is about investigation rather than combat. There no monsters for the players to slay, and the supernatural beings can only be placated (or sometimes banished).
