The World is Ready. Are You?

Hugo Solis, Key of VelesMidgard is lost in an age of war: of dark wilderness, and lost empires sunk beneath the waves.

Only magic and the warmth of hope keeps lights aglow when dread things prowl, and priestly wardings tremble and bend before the fury of demonic rage.

In this dark time, new heroes must arise to claim the crowns of Midgard, and restore the jewels to her scattered thrones...

The Midgard Campaign Setting brings to life a world of dark fantasy drawn from the great European traditions. Within this book you’ll find ley lines and deep magic; the Western Waste’s giant, shambling horrors and magic-blasted landscapes; diabolical gnomes and the schemes of immortal Baba Yaga.

Mark Smylia, Amazon of Perun

You’ll sail the wind with wild elves and cut through the waves with swashbuckling minotaur corsairs. Midgard is a land of lethal assassins and exotic splendors as well as the empty, dragon-haunted crags of the icy Northlands.

The 298 pages of the Midgard Campaign Setting include:

• New Pathfinder RPG and AGE System rules for gearforged, kobold, and minotaur PCs
26 new backgrounds, 3 new schools of magic and new specialties for AGE System
New clerical domains including Clockwork, Moon, Hunger and Beer
• More than 50 kingdom write-ups, with new feats and traits for each region of Midgard
New spells, magical items, and incantations
New gear and weapons unique to the setting
 The secrets of ley lines and shadow roads!

From the Northern fjords to the hidden tombs of the gnolls, from the raven-headed reavers to the ruins of the great mage-kingdoms: all of Midgard is yours!

Recommended in the WIRED GeekDad Holiday Gift Guide:

"A wonderfully rich and beautiful sourcebook chronicling the world of Midgard. Think of how many game masters have fancied their campaign worlds awesome enough to publish in the book. So few actually have the writing and publishing chops to accomplish this, and to do so with such style is pretty much unheard of."

I'm currently using this setting for my 13th Age campaign, and it's been a great fit for my group. It has a good balance between defining enough, so that I know, in a general way, what each portion of the world is "all about," but doesn't define so much [...]

MIDGARD CAMPAIGN SETTING REVIEW (This is my 1st review.) I’m a sucker for campaign settings. I have been since I purchased that first Greyhawk Campaign Setting with the charging knight on the front. I’ve used them as the foundation of my campaigns [...]

This massive pdf is 298 pages long, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page patron list, 3 pages ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 289 pages of content. This review is based on both the pdf for formal page-c [...]

In a word: brilliant. This is without doubt or hyperbole the very best fantasy RPG campaign setting that I have ever read (and I've read many!). Wolfgang Bauer and his team have delivered a dark reflection of old world myth and legend and given [...]

This is a fantastic alternate setting and especially for AGE games (although the Pathfinder roots remain quite evident and are sometimes jarring). It is well organized and beautifully illustrated. Even if one only intends to mine the sourcebook for [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
