Description Edit | History

user summary

Midgard 1 is the first German RPG and was published in 1981. The game was published by "Verlag für F & SF-Spiele". The later published RPG "Das Schwarze Auge" quickly dominated the German RPG market for a while as it was published by a then huge board game publisher (Schmidt Spiele) which got "Das schwarze Auge" onto the shelf of nearly every toy store. Hence, only be sold via hobby stores, Midgard became the lesser known RPG in Germany.

Taken from the preface of the game:

"MIDGARD ist das erste eigenständige deutsche Fantasy-Rollenspiel. Im Gegensatz zu anderen deutschsprachigen Fantasy-Rollenspiel-Regelwerken handelt es sich bei Midgard nicht um eine in kleiner Auflage und für den Privatgebrauch angefertigten Übersetzung oder erweiterte Bearbeitung eines amerikanischen und englischen Rollenspielsystems. Wesentliche Aspekte der Regeln wurden eigens für MIDGARD entwickelt, um die innere Logik des Spiels und die Beziehungen zwischen den Spielvorgängen, und dem was sie simulieren sollen, zu verbessern."

The first edition of Midgard was not set on the later world "Midgard", but the action took place in "Magira".

The rulebook includes the following chapters:

- Spielfiguren (characters)
- Fertigkeiten (skills)
- Abenteuer (adventure)
- Kampf (combat)
- Zauber (magic)
- Erfahrung (experience)
- Türen und Fallen (doors and traps)
- Preislisten (price lists)
- Spruchrollen (magic scrolls)
