Last fall Christina Stiles approached me about participating in an event she was organizing for MACE 2012 entitled Midgard Mayhem. The event was designed to showcase the just released campaign setting of Midgard by Wolfgang Baur by running adventures set in it. The idea sounded cool and I agreed to run a couple of adventures for the event.
The first scenario I ran was The Forgotten King’s Tomb by Mike Franke adapted to Green Ronin’s excellent AGE system. The premise of the adventure is that the adventurers are members of an elite cadre of kobold irregulars sent to seek a tomb with supposedly enchanted writing that their Akinji (dragonkin lord) Shard had discovered during an expedition into the Sands of Sorrows many years prior.
Sure, there are still many hours until registration opens for the Best Four Days in Gaming, but you’re going to want to know what grab in that mad scramble when the electronic gates lift on May 19th. We’re here for you…well, we’re here to show you where to find Midgard in Indianapolis. A kobold’s gotta have limits.
Are you going to Gen Con 2013? Want to run a session of Midgard and show folks just how much awesome the kobolds can pack into 4 hours?
Please email Ben McFarland (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in running Midgard adventures at the convention. (Today would be best, but soon will work, too!)
Hope to see you in Indianapolis from August 15-18th!
They are the holy days of our people, and the planning is underway. We will quaff beverages, roll dice, swap stories, and laugh with gusto. (Like Paizocon, but with more beverages—really, more everything!) A number of Midgard scenarios are rolling out at the show, plus some exciting, new material. You could run an adventure from out of the upcoming Midgard Tales collection!
Come get your game on, and help us rock out the Best Four Days of Gaming!
At MACE West 2013, which starts on April 5th and goes through the 7th, you can enjoy one or more of the several Midgard events that they are running! Take a look at the following schedule, and visit their website to learn more about the convention, which takes place at the Gateway Hotel in Hickory, North Carolina. You can also browse their events schedule.
Friday 3:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
Savage Worlds—Midgard Mayhem: Zobeck City Nights (GM Marc Francis)
Some days, it just feels like the stars have aligned and everything is falling into place.
That was the Friday of Gen Con 2012—and I don’t mean the fact that the panels went well, or that a seat opened up at the Ars Magica game, although that contributed. I mean that I sat down to run “Grandmother’s Fire” from Tales of the Old Margreve and had it rocking on all cylinders, exactly as it was supposed to be. To be fair, I have to warn you that spoilers follow.
