Welcome, Campaign information can be found in the wiki – click below
In Norse mythology, Ragnarök (/ragnarɔk/, Old Norse “Final destiny of the gods”) is a series of major events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Freyr, Heimdall, and the jötunn loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world resurfaces anew and fertile, the surviving gods meet, and the world is repopulated by two human survivors.
The time period is around 500 B.C. and Ragnarok isn’t just an idea. It is reality. People are thinking about the end of the world and good vs. evil. It is up to the characters to make a pathway through this calamity and determine its outcome.
This campaign will take place in the Forgotten Realms but in an earlier time period. The main campaign books for Players are Dungeonscape, Frostburn and Races of Stone. The North is the only region your characters know of and visitors form other regions are unheard of.
The main pantheon will be Asgardian (Norse). Other gods exist but they are unknown to the majority of the people. The North has not been invaded yet!
There will be four seasons but the climate will be similar or Norway or Alaska. There will be 30 days of night :)
Arcane magic is limited to sorcerers and bards because writing hasn’t been invented yet.
Magic is primarily divine and nature based. Magic items will be very rare and usually rune/artifact based. There will be potions, runes and other witchery type items.
Armor, weapons and other equipment will be limited to the time period and will be listed on the wiki.
Allowed classes and races will also be in the wiki. No one has heard of paladins or wizards. Fighters are rare since there isn’t really a need for guards or massive armies. Monks will be hermits as there are few monasteries as the culture doesn’t have the resources to feed people who don’t work. Bards, Druids, Rangers and Barbarians will be common. Rogues will have modified skills and feats at higher levels. Dragon and Spirit Shamans are allowed also.
The wiki will have all the spells and feats from the main campaign books.
Races will be limited to Players Handbook, Frostburn and Races of Stone.
We will be starting at level 5.
