Magical Multiverse Tour—Iron Edda: Kaldheim Chaos

Beskir Shieldmate
You are the staunch defenders of a Bretagard holdfast, keeping your village safe from raiders and beasts. Until the skies broke, the realms collided, and a Doomskar like none before rocked your world. How will you push back the threats that have emerged—and what terrible bonds will you forge along the way?

We will be playing four sessions of Iron Edda: World of Metal and Bone, a PbtA game of heavy metal Viking action, where PCs are berserkers, shieldmaidens, and others battling monstrous dwarf-forged mechanical titans—and sometimes bonding with the the bones of ancient giants and riding them around like mecha. Yeah, it’s metal like that.

Our setting is Kaldheim, a Norse-myth-inspired world from the lore of Magic: The Gathering.

This is the first of a Magical Multiverse Tour series of me running games set on various planes of Magic: The Gathering. Given that most characters cannot cross between these worlds, there will be very little continuity or crossovers, but perhaps the occasional Easter egg…

NUMBER OF SESSIONS: There will be 4 sessions in total. Being able to attend each session is ideal. You must RSVP to each session you wish to attend.

DURATION: 3 hours

NUMBER OF PLAYERS: 4 players total. One slot is reserved for Danielle B.

SAFETY TOOLS IN USE: We will use CATS, the X-Card, Lines & Veils, and the Open Door Policy. This event abides by the Gauntlet Community Code of Conduct.

SET UP INFO: We will play over Streamyard. Expect a set-up email from me about a week before the first session, with a link to a Google sheet character keeper.

BREAKS: two ten-minute breaks (and more as requested)

RECORDED: Provided all players give permission, sessions will be recorded and posted to the Cloven Pine Games Youtube channel.

PRIOR EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: No, rules will be taught in play. Additionally, you don’t need to know anything about Magic: The Gathering or its lore. I’ll cover the basics of the setting.
