Midgard Notebook: March of History

March of History There’s a sense in some fantasy campaign settings of being entirely encased in amber, and with good reason: players want the world to remain familiar and useful for play. Removing dragons from Dragonlance or advancing a timeline 100 years in a world of your own invention without consulting your game group… well, you would be taking rather a big chance. Change can be a dirty world in the relatively serene halls of fantasy...

B is for Beasts

When I was a wee lad growing up in a rather Germanic household,the Advent calendar was one of the joys of each year. A picture or a chocolate lay behind each of its 25 little cardboard cutouts, and—because you only opened one per day—the last window in the Advent calendar was always for Christmas. It was a brutal way to learn patience; but hey, at least there was SOMETHING every day until the Christmas carnage arrived. Immediate Gratification...

Advanced Races Compendium Kickstarter Sneak Peek: Spell Preview

Welcome! As we dive into the intriguing waters of Advanced Races Compendium stretch goals, I thought it would be fun to tease something we haven’t announced yet. Who among you can guess what race’s chapter the following spell might be found in? I’ll just tell you, I had a blast working on this race, even though we knew it was a backer goal and might not be released ’til later. This book has groovy spells and not one, but...

Advanced Races Compendium Kickstarter Sneak Peek: Drow

Welcome Pathfinder fans! Steven T Helt (or, you know, Famine) back again to tease out some really great content for the Advanced Races Compendium. Today I want to whet your appetites and tell you about a stretch goal we haven’t reached yet. Keep in mind, this chapter isn’t guaranteed to make it into the book until backing for the project reaches $35,000, so we all have a little work cut out for us! If we do reach that goal (and I...

Advanced Races Compendium Kickstarter Sneak Peek: Saurion Champion

I think it’s time for an exciting blog update for the Kickstarter, friends! Today we’re going to spoil something we have hinted in interviews and podcasts. One of my favorite bits from the lizardfolk chapter of the Advanced Races Compendium is the dinosaur-riding option for lizardfolk cavaliers. This book, written by the Four Horsemen, was one of the stretch goals for the Southlands Kickstarter project, which was tremendous fun to...

From Zobeck to the Southlands

Adam Daigle has joined in on the Southlands Kickstarter project, and today he shares with you a bit about himself and his work on this project. I first started playing around in the world of Midgard when it was just a crossroads city called Zobeck. At this point, Kickstarter wasn’t even a thing, and Wolfgang was crowdsourcing the nascent Midgard Campaign Setting using a form many here know as Open Design’s patronage model. Patronage wasn’t a...

On Converting Monsters to D&D

One of the unlocked goals of the Southlands Kickstarter includes monsters for the fifth edition of D&D. You can learn more about converting monsters from one system to another from Rodrigo García Carmona, who talks to us about both math and the language of conversion in this blog post. A conversion is more art than science. Please, don’t misinterpret my words. I’m not saying that maths aren’t important, because they are. In fact, I teach...
