So You Want to Play in Midgard? (But You Don’t Know Where to Start)

Post by Big Mac » Fri Jun 28, 2019 10:57 am

Lou Anders has written a really useful article called So You Want to Play in Midgard? (But You Don’t Know Where to Start) for Kobold Press.

He talks about how the interactive Midgard Map and his own Midgard Adventures Level and Location spreadsheet can help you choose Midgard adventures that fit logically in a geographical area you are interested in.

He then gives two different example adventure paths, created by bolting a ton of different adventures together. First there is the "Crossroads Campaign Arc" set in the main Midgard area. Then there is a "Southlands Campaign Arc" for anyone who wants to play in the Southlands.

I think the article is well worth the time you need to read it. He has instructions on how to get the best out of his spreadsheet, so if you read this and grab a copy of his spreadsheet, you can ride on the back of the large amount of time he has spent researching Midgard and leapfrog ahead of where you could be if you started from scratch.
