Blades of Light
Welcome to the Blades of Light Player’s Guide, and welcome to the world of Midgard! This campaign begins with you taking on the role of someone who, faced with the choice of working quietly in a vocation in hopes of working your way to fame and fortune over the course of your life or seeking glory on the fields of war, has chosen to sign up with a Free Company and join the yearly wars between the Seven Cities. This guide is intended to help you build your character, inform you to some degree about the world of Midgard as a whole, and to further detail the corner of it where you find yourself. Do bear in mind that the world lore is, at best, likely flavored a bit by the nature of the culture in which you live, and indeed it may well be entirely wrong about some things.
So again – welcome to Midgard! A flat disc of a world, bounded by the World Serpent, steeped in secrets both ancient and recent, home to dark beasts, vast wildernesses, and treacherous foes, and waiting for a new set of heroes to rise up and fight the ever-encroaching darkness.
