From the publisher's website:
Set in a world of snowy, pinnacled mountains, dark forests thick with mists and tangled thorns, grassy hills as green and silken as the seas: Mithgerd is a world in a mythic age, an age of god-like men and monsters. It is a world rich with magic, in which sorcery is not a tool of man, but a dangerous and corrupting power, age-old, natural and eternal. It is the world that existed before the gods who made the gods walked upon this green earth, a world in which the dim memories we have of gods and monsters have more than a little truth to them, and the heroic may bravely do what they may dare, and perhaps become legends themselves.
Wayfarer’s Song is a roleplaying game of myth and magic set in a world drawn loosely from Norse, Anglo-Saxon and Celtic mythology.
The second edition comes in two versions: the full core rules (146 pages) and the basic version (26 pages).
