From Drinking Horn Games, Sagas of Midgard is a new take on Fantasy Norse Roleplaying. Rather than utilizing the tropes created by Lord of the Rings and DnD, we go directly to the source, where J.R.R. Tolkien drew his inspiration: the Norse Sagas and Eddas.
SSagas of Midgard is a story-driven tabletop RPG that has been developed with cinematic action sequences and the ability to easily tell memorable stories at its core. With a simple yet engaging ruleset, stunning art, and innovative gameplay, Sagas of Midgard has something to offer any gaming group with a story to tell.
