Wayfarer’s Song

180px_aelfanSet 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. Currently Wayfarer’s Song is in its second edition. The older first edition rules will remain on the Mythopoetic Games site for posterity, although it’s recommended that if you are interested in the game you should work with the much smoother and more complete second edition.
