The Ride of the Valkyries (1909) by John Charles Dollman
The Ride of the Valkyries (1909) by John Charles Dollman

The influence of the Norse society and especially their mythology on today's fantasy literature, television and games can hardly be overestimated, heavily influencing fantasy legends like Tolkiens Lord of the Rings, R.R. Martins Game of Thrones and several pen and paper RPGs. So its about time to bring it all the way back to the northern roots.

    

The Yggdrasil Compendium - 24 pages

This compendium provides background information of Yggdrasil, the world of the Norse. The world is very closely based on the world of the Norsemen inhabiting Scandinavia from the 8th to the 11th century, from the beginning of the Viking age until the christianization of Scandinavia. The compendium is divided into four chapters, the Norse Society, the Land and Creatures, the Norse Pantheon and the Character Creation. The 24 rune alphabet of the Norse can be found in the Appendix. The compendium is delivered in two versions, a Player Version and a Dungeon Master version. The second version contains information about the world, which is revealed in the campaign.  A condensed Fact Sheet and the World Map are attached separately.

The Norse Campaign "The March of the Warden" - 60 pages

“The March of the Warden” campaign takes place in Yggdrasil the world of the Norse. It is designed for four to six level one characters, who will advance to the sixth or seventh level. A follow up campaign called “Heathen Wrath” either as draft or fully worked out campaign is planned. The campaign "March of the Warden" contains the story line, encounter description including narratives as well as monster and magical item descriptions. To run “The Wardens of Midgard” you will need the world description called the Yggdrasil Compendium as well as the System Reference Document of the 5th Edition Open Gamin License, which is free for download.

The Norse Maps

Twenty six battle-, dungeon- and citymaps digitally designed exclusively for this campaign. The maps are efficiently sized and processed in order to achieve high details while keeping all maps under 5 MB.

Distribution

All files will be distributed via dropbox.

Risks and challenges

Since the compendium and the campaign are already written and all maps are designed, there is basically no risk involved.
