The Wyrd of Stromgard

Selected Option:
Softcover, B&W Book
PDF + Softcover, B&W Book

In Norse mythology, saying something out loud was to give it form, meaning, and power.  That's why fate is called a 'wyrd'.  The Wyrd of Stromgard is exactly what it says it is- the power to shape heroic tales amidst chaos, violence, and magic.

The Wyrd of Stromgard is an expansion to Dungeon World that comes with playbooks, fully fledged setting, a huge campaign front, and more.

What's Inside?

  • Historical context
  • 10 unique Playbooks based on legendary Norse figures
  • 7 compendium classes
  • Fully formed and intricate (and fully customizeable) setting with chapters on societies, races, warfare, religion, geography, and magic
  • Monster Manual with 20 entries
  • Equipment/Item lists + common services to help flesh out your world
  • GM's Toolbox chapter full of resources like loot tables, legendary treasures, and general 'best practices' advice
  • A four-part campaign that pits your PCs against Ragnarok itself- complete with statless monsters too strong to fight by normal means, equipment, moves, and monsters specially made just for this front.

Also included:

  • PDF file of easily printable playbooks and compendium classes, ready to go whenever you need.

This game. What can I say. It had vikings. It had gods. It had giant immortal dragons chasing us through the roots of the world tree as we tried to undo a curse someone, definitely not me, may have accidentally put on our party members. There [...]

This is exactly what I want from a Norse/Viking themed RPG. The book contains plenty of information to inform an appropriate setting and the playbooks feel unique and thematic. Five historically inaccurate horned helmets up. [...]

Original electronic
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.
