The fires of creation burn hot! Today, Open Design is launching its most ambitious design project to date: the world of Midgard! You can be part of this rare opportunity to design a published campaign setting. Your co-authors in this endeavor will be Wolfgang Baur, Jeff Grubb, and Brandon Hodge.
Midgard is the setting for Wolfgang’s own homebrew D&D campaign. Sections of it have been revealed publicly over the years through articles in Kobold Quarterly magazine and in Open Design projects such as Courts of the Shadow Fey, Tales of the Old Margreve, and Dwarves of the Ironcrags. Most of it exists only as hint and allusions, though, and scribbled notes in Wolfgang’s campaign notebook. Which is where you come in!
You can become a patron of the Midgard project and get behind-the-scenes access and input into the creation of Midgard’s seven regions. Add your original ideas, or even elements of your own home campaign: NPCs, magic items, heroes, villains, towns, cities -- even whole pantheons. Along the way, Wolfgang will be hosting regular live online chats for patrons and designers. (Plus other fun surprises.)
The finished worldbook will be available to patrons as a limited-edition hardcover, and to the public as a softcover. Among other perks patrons will also receive the Worldbuilder’s Guidebook: a collection of worldbuilding essays from Wolfgang, Jeff and others.
The gates of the world have opened! Join the Midgard design project as a patron here!
Small but Fierce.
