Since the Rune effects can be a lot to write on a character sheet especially given their one-use utility , we've created a Rune-Deck to help you easily select random runes and use them at the table.
Black Stars Rise
Each Rune Card features custom calligraphy by Jennifer Baugh, with the effects of each card under the Elder Futhark calligraphy. This was requested specifically by our playtesters and prototyped by a Runecaster character before our plans became more concrete , and it's been a great addition to the game!
Artifacts Every culture that has a Hero myth also gives its Heroes weapons, armor and tools of equal magnitude to help them accomplish their tasks. Heroes and Gods need weapons worthy of their stature. The Norse were no exception, and the Eddas devote many tales to the forging and creation of various items. Where runes are more prevalent and transitory, Artifacts should feel rare and important. Each Artifact can be attuned only to one person at a time allowing the bonus only to them , and each Artifact has: Personality: An artifact, if not outright sentient, is blessed with the powers and shortcomings of the Gods.
Boon: Oh yes. The boon of an artifact is the bonus it grants you for your trouble. Bane: Nothing is without its price, especially where it comes to power. Every artifact has a bane, typically commensurate in power to the boon. Leah Porter, Acrylic on Canvas There is much more to this existence than we can perceive; beings of immense power, monsters prowling through the dark reaches of the earth, and entire worlds whose mysteries even the Gods have not fully uncovered.
Norse cosmology and, as such, Sagas of Midgard is made up of Nine Worlds, and we've done our best to breathe life into them and create ways in which your players can interact with them.
Although we give information about all Nine Worlds, we've saved the bulk of our work for where you'll be spending most of your time: Midgard. Our version of Midgard is a mythologized version of Scandinavia, with new geography and many new challenges to overcome.
The homes of the Vikings the Drengrlands are the most fleshed out, with four Kingdoms, dozens of towns, and pages of locations, organizations, and intrigue that you can throw into your Sagas at will. We've also mythologized the rest of Northern and Central Europe, giving you potential allies and enemies with whom to trade, settle lands, or simply do what Vikings do best: raid!
Leah Porter, Acrylic on Canvas We've only scratched the surface of the system here in the preceding paragraphs, and indeed with the book thus far. This is a passion project and we're pouring every dollar we make back into more art, more design layout, and more game.
Your support means so much to us! If you have any questions, check out sagasofmidgard. The Fenris-wolf advances with wide open mouth; the upper jaw reaches to heaven and the lower jaw is on the earth. He would open it still wider had he room. Fire flashes from his eyes and nostrils. The Midgard-serpent vomits forth venom, defiling all the air and the sea; he is very terrible, and places himself by the side of the wolf.
In the midst of this clash and din the heavens are rent in twain, and the sons of Muspel come riding through the opening. Due to your valor and service to the Gods, you were delivered to Odin's Hall.
[Powered by the Apocalypse] System Basics
Now, as one of the Einherjar in Valhalla, you know it is your final sacred duty to defend Asgard when the end comes. And, indeed, it seems the end has come. Loki and his sons have broken their chains, and the sky falls to black. The fire-giants of Muspelheim march upon Asgard. It falls to you, your fellow Einherjar, and the Gods to defend Valhalla on the field of Vigrid.
As Midgard falls into destruction, you stand on the field of battle before impossible odds, but you are not afraid. You spent your entire life succeeding in the face of impossible odds. If it truly is the end, you will go to rest once more in the service of the Gods, and if any remain after the battle, you will fight with such ferocity that they will remember you. We certainly underestimated how badly you guys wanted the apocalypse, and funded our first stretch goal almost immediately!
But since we've just gotten started here, why don't we take a look at sprucing up our already fully-fillable PDF character sheet with our next stretch goal, the Hand-Drawn, Fully Fillable Illuminated Manuscript Character Sheet? Illuminated What-now? They were not a particularly bookish bunch and so history and mythology was passed along almost exclusively through storytelling tradition and inscribed rune-stones.
Much of the written history of the Vikings we have now is through the efforts of Christian scholars during the Middle Ages, from which we have Illuminated Manuscripts.
Hillfolk + PDF
An illuminated manuscript is a text enhanced through miniature illustrations, borders, and decorative script. The majority of surviving illuminated manuscripts are from the middle ages and of a religious nature; they were an art form that these Christian scholars recording Viking history and mythology were likely to have practiced. Why not offer Sagas of Midgard players the chance to record their characters in similar style? Our plan is to take this style and add a Norse "flair" to it so that it remains a workable, fully fillable character sheet PDF that's in-line with the other Norse-inspired art in the book.
O, wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, That has such people in't! At current we have 14 pages and 6, words describing the Drengrlands where your Warbands will reside and our interpretation of Viking Culture.
We've included some additional information about other lands and Kingdoms to pillage, but we've decided we want to take that a step further with our next Stretch Goal, The Skald Morotar's Knowledge of the World Beyond the Drengrlands or, more simply: Brave New Worlds!
The Gallian Empire is a unique place. Where we wear our wealth literally on our sleeves, they wear it on their buildings; their cities are full of resplendent castles and cathedrals to their God. Although they fight with discipline, none can match the ferocity of the Drengr-- meaning their wealth is our wealth, if a Warband be audacious enough to go and take it.
Cold, unyielding, and harsh, it sometimes seems the Gods have placed you there as a test. The Skalds sing of new lands to the South; with warm climates and fertile fields, and large caches of unprotected wealth. Your people have never been content to stay in their Settlement, and the Continent to the south seems to offer unlimited potential to trade, to settle-- and to raid.
When Unlocked, the Brave New Worlds expansion will include: At least 5 new Kingdoms to explore on the Continent and beyond including mythologized corollaries of England, France, the Byzantine Empire,and more , each with their own governance, temperament, and unique riches and treasures Dozens of plot hooks and prominent people within each Kingdom, offering your Game Masters hundreds of adventure ideas Unique Settlement Upgrades exclusive to each Kingdom; What's the point of a mechanic whereby you can take over a Settlement if you can't stay there?
Premium Color Books! We admit, there was a slightly ulterior motive to ensuring that anyone who wanted a Physical Corebook could get one via International Shipping We simply couldn't afford to use Premium Heavyweight Color. In the last week, you've taught us to dream bigger. We want their art to look as good as it possibly can, so even though it increases our printing costs significantly, it will give our backers the best possible product, which is, at the end of the day, our only goal.
We've been burning through our Stretch Goals like a hot knife through Your generosity has already unlocked Ragnarok which sounds bad when you put it like that for everyone who downloads the Corebook, but we wanted to give you something more. During our year of playtesting, our groups have created a lot of great stories together. Now, we want to share them with you in an exclusive, fully written and realized premade adventure, fully illustrated with art by Leah Porter and James Cornell!
The trouble, of course, is with all the great stories we've made together, it's been difficult to choose just one. Product Type. Core Rulebooks. Non-Core Books.

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. 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. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed download 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. To use them, you must activate your Adobe Reader software.
