The Nail of the North

nimbus turns its eye to Finnish folklore and mythology, where the frost sings songs and the rain writes poems; where stories are born in the bellies of giants and men and gods walk side by side. The Kalevala brings us to the fierce lands of the north to deliver a harrowing magical quest, an epic tale with a biker gang mentality.

Death and broken promises, deeds of heroism and revenge, thievery and deceit, great labors and deepest desires. nimbus rides a cold, hard road to bring you bareknuckle magic from the land of the Polestar.

Featuring Abdullahi M. Ahmed, Jim Ahrens, Heidi Berg, Lana Bean, Kit Bix, Caitlin Hammel, Brian Hesser, Nicholas Nelson, and Nissa Nordland Morgan
