Heroes of Midhgardhur
WELCOME HEROES OF MIDHGARDHUR!
High adventure awaits you in a dark age of fantasy! Welcome to the world that the people of the North call Midhgardhur! This campaign uses the Pathfinder rules and has a dark fantasy flavor that mixes Norse mythology and sagas with the sensibilities of “Appendix N” fantasy literature. And yes, while much of the inspiration for the world of Midhgardhur has been taken from “real-world” Europe of the Dark Ages, this is most definitely not our world, and should not be taken as a commentary on the real history of Northern Europe at that time. It’s fantasy, people!
The fates I fathom, yet farther I see:
of the mighty gods the engulfing doom.
Brothers will battle to bloody end,
and sister’s sons their sib betray;
woe’s in the world, much wantonness;
axe-age, sword-age – sundered are shields -
wind-age, wolf-age, ere the world crumbles
will the spear of no man spare the other.
~ From the Voluspa, The Prophecy of Ragnarok (Lee M. Hollander translation)

The “Runestones of Rys” Campaign
The Runestones of Rys campaign is set in the world of Midhgardhur, but is essentially a sub-campaign designed to make use of the simplified rules from the Pathfinder Beginner Box Set.
