A Gazetteer of Asgard - A Murphy’s World Supplement


Join Sean Murphy on a trip to the most outrageous Casino Resort in the Multiverse!

Sean Murphy could barely believe his ears when he learned that the fabled city of Asgard actually existed on Murphy's World -- as a gigantic entertainment and gambling mecca! He wondered why he hadn't heard of it sooner. Then a golden money-making opportunity struck him like a Giant-wielded hammerblow -- Asgard needed marketing. The Aesir could hire him to promote their casino complex. And perhaps even extend him an expense account!

A Gazetteer of Asgard provides an overview of the legendary citystate, following Sean Murphy as he interacts with the locals while trying to meet the 'decision makers' to pitch his marketing scheme. 

This full color 19 page ebook describes the misadventures of Sean Murphy as he explores the wonders and temptations of Asgard -- the city that never sleeps -- unless you've been rendered unconscious... 

This book includes a site map of the City of Asgard with more than 50 notable locations identified and a color map of the region. Included are descriptions of the entertainment complexes, hotels, games, passtimes, and the Giant bureaucracy that manages it all. As Sean Murphy wanders the gaudy streets encountering other travelers (tourists, lovers, gamblers and fools...), a sense of the city's sleazy grandeur will emerge.

Also included is 'The Story Behind Asgard (or Odin Cooks the Books)' -- detailing how an impoverished backwater Giant Clan came to occupy a choice piece of property and develop a humble bingo hall into one of the greatest environments for separating visitors from their money that the planet has even known. 

Stats and descriptions for 'The Average Giant' are provided, along with a Random Generation Table of Typical Aesir Giant Names, and a Character Sheet.

A Gazetteer of Asgard can be read for amusement and/or used as a supplement for Murphy's World, a humorous techno-fantasy Roleplay Game available from Peregrine as a downloadable PDF for just $9.99. 

Murphy's World is a 163 page ebook that can be used as an adventure setting for characters from any RPG or as a stand-alone game (simple roleplay rules are provided based on a d100 percentile system). Please check it out by clicking on this link.

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.
