For all you WYRD fanboys out there, I recently updated my webpage with some extra stuff.  Included are some sample creatures and whatnot, as well as some rules as to how Heroes can sometimes trick Fate.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Thanks bla,  :smile:

Actually, I have multiple "setting" ideas for WYRD.

The first, and probably most dull, directly involves the players in the epic Beowulf by asking them to play young Geats who pick up the sword after their leader-hero's demise.

I have another setting I'm working on called 'Ymir's Bones', which casts the players as dwarves in Midgard just after its creation. The Viking creation story posits that when Odin killed the frost giant Ymir, the giant's corpse became the world, and the dwarves came from the maggots feeding off his flesh.  I'm taking that literally and portraying the world as though it is nothing more than a shallow grave for an enormous rotting corpse.  Meanwhile, as the players navigate the rather grim landscape of Midgard, they become involved in the war between the Aesir and the Vanir.  

A friend of mine is working on a third setting called Eihhaljar, in which the characters have already died, gone to Valhalla, and have been impressed into service into one of the private armies of the gods.  There they train for the coming Ragnarok, and fight for the honor of who will lead the armies into the final battle.

I don't know when I'll get this stuff done - I've been pretty busy on some other projects - but it is on my plate for the near future.  I hope to have at least the Beowulf setting done to include in an ashcan that I want to give away at GenCon.

Hey Bla,

If you know something about Norse mythology that you think would make a good game setting, feel free to write it up and send it to me.  I've got other friends doing the same, and if I ever get up the scratch to publish the damn thing (which is a goal of mine), I'll want to include as much setting material as possible.  At the very least, I could post it along with the rules at my website.  

Take care,

Moose
