MIDDENARDE takes place in 15th century England, a land rife with turmoil, where folk live and die by the sword. Many English troops now return from the Hundred Years' War to find their country bubbling over with strife. The Church's power has grown fractured and disorganized, and while the Crown is weakened by internal forces vying for its future, petty lordlings take advantage of the chaos to enrich themselves by declaring war on one another.

The setting sun highlights a young man leaving his village.

The word “middenarde” means “the middle abode,” i.e. the earth as it is situated between heaven and hell. The British Isles are full of squabbling lords, small-town cults, hidden magick, and most importantly – opportunity. These are interesting times, when upward mobility is at its strongest, and anyone can make something of themselves, if they can survive long enough. Even you.

In the midst of this discord, a story emerges: you, an inexperienced commoner, leave your home in search of better fortunes. Perhaps you are forced out by bandits, or a lordly raiding party. Maybe you are lured out by tales of ancient treasure, valuable artefacts, or mystical beasts. It may be that you are simply tired of your empty life, and want to seek more fulfilling prospects, or new experiences.

Either way, you will emerge blinking and dazed into a world where everything is up for grabs, and everyone is trying to take as much as they can get. It's the perfect time to make something of yourself -- but also the perfect time to wind up dead in a muddy ditch. In this tale, you are not the heroic adventurer bouncing from one quest to another, strolling through fights with nary a scratch. You are the pile of bones that crunches under their foot when they step into a dungeon.

Two warriors face off in a duel.

Your characters will be just as mortal as the foes they face, and every violent encounter will be a brush with death. Even slaying all your enemies may leave you scarred and disfigured, and you will have to rely on sturdy metal for your armor, not plot. You are not destined for greatness -- but you have the potential for greatness. Your character will grow and learn, becoming more competent, better equipped, and less naive, as you build them up, through hardship and trial, into something to be proud of.

This book includes everything you need to create and launch your own campaign in the world of Middenarde. The core rulebook introduces you to the setting and guides you through the process of character creation, as well as all of the game's mechanics. Ready-to-play adventure modules will be forthcoming.

"I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Middenarde. It’s different, but it’s the right sort of different." -GeekNative

This was a lot of fun to play with a group of five friends. We had a blast getting into our characters. The scenarios were interesting and proceeded smoothly. I recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Will you discount POD for an already purchased PDF or should we wait until it is ready? ETA?

I don't know if it's even possible for me to discount POD for PDF purchasers, so you should wait until it's ready. I have no idea when that might be, though; it's a huge undertaking. There's a reason it was initially designed only for PDF release.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
