Midgard Icons: The Oracle of Kammae

Sea God in ChainsMidgard Icons presents some of the Midgard Campaign Setting’s major NPCs as icons for use in 13th Age, the new fantasy roleplaying game from Rob Heinsoo and Jonathan Tweet. Bring them into your 13th Age campaign; run 13th Age in the world of Midgard; or port the icon relationship rules into your system of choice.

In our 10th and final installment, we enter a mysterious temple where, through fogs of incense, we hear the rattle of giant chains…

The Oracle of Kammae

The blind daughter of the moon is blessed — or cursed — with divine insight, and gifts of healing and prophecy. With the voices of spirits, angels, and canny counselors around her, the Oracle of Kammae Straboli rarely errs in matters of fact or faith.


“Go seven leagues to the North, to where jeweled wings beat against a blackened wall. Search among the rocks at nightfall for the hidden key — but beware the one who walks behind.”

The Bundle of Zobeck

A top-quality collection of DRM-free Pathfinder ebooks from Kobold Press — pay what you want and support charity!

The Bundle of Zobeck offers an outstanding collection of Kobold Press Pathfinder ebooks —
characters, locations, magic, and adventures. For one price you set yourself, you can get the complete collection — over 500 pages of DRM-free watermarked PDFs — an entire Pathfinder fantasy roleplaying campaign featuring the Midgard setting and, above all, its bustling, ever-ticking Free City of Zobeck.

Home to clockwork wizards, Gear Goddess priests, conniving cultists, ambitious merchants, and backstabbing thieves, Zobeck is the beating heart of the Midgard campaign setting. And though these ebooks include many details about Midgard’s deities, clockwork technology, and neighboring territories, you can easily transplant the Free City to your existing fantasy campaign with only slight modifications. In Midgard or in your own world, Zobeck provides the perfect home base for your game’s stories.

Every Bundle of Zobeck includes PDF versions of the 96-page Zobeck Gazetteer (retail price US$10) and the large Zobeck City Map (retail $4). And if you pay more than the current average price, you also receive these bonus ebooks:

* Midgard Campaign Setting (298 pages, retail $20) – the complete ENnie-nominated worldbook
* Streets of Zobeck (94 pages, retail $10) – dark and daring fantasy-noir adventures in the city’s seedy underbelly
* Midgard Bestiary (109 pages, retail $10) – over 100 monsters and creatures suitable for Midgard or any fantasy setting

If you paid full price for all these PDFs, you’d spend nearly US$74. But we let you set your own price for the entire collection. You can designate a portion of your payment for two of Kobold Press founder Wolfgang Baur’s favorite charities: Heifer International and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The starting average price of the Bundle of Zobeck will be weighted to keep it from rising too fast. The sooner you purchase your Bundle of Zobeck, the lower the average price will be, and the cheaper it is to get the bonus books. There’s another bonus to buying early—if we add books to the Bundle later in its run (hint, hint), all previous purchasers automatically receive those newly added books on their download page, regardless of whether they paid higher than the bonus price. That’s your reward for buying early.

Your affordable ticket to the Free City and the world of Midgard is on sale now. But act fast — the Bundle of Zobeck is a time-limited offer.
