If any or all of these things excite you:
- Norse Myth (see the Prose and Poetry Eddas)
Pacific Rim (giant monsters fighting giant robots)
Shadowrun and the Matrix (super technology and super abilities)
4-color Superheroes (well, you're already reading ATT...)
"What is this incredible world?" you ask? Tracy's built a fantasy storyline for Midgard that brings giant metal robots (fielded by the deep dwarves of the world) and skeletal giant Jotnar (piloted by human warriors) together on the field of battle! The main, base sourcebook for War of Metal and Bone is written by Tracy for the story-focused Fate Core system, and will include information and guidance for building Holdfasts, customizing your Jarls, Thralls, Runemarked, and Bonebonded, and having a grand old time in the fantastic medieval world of Iron Edda's Midgard. Tracy's gathered an incredible team of talented designers to expand Iron Edda to be approachable and instantly playable in a staggering array of RPG systems.
Heroes of Metal and Bone brings this epic story into current times. Ragnarok has started, and the world's modern governments and peoples have to deal with rising sea levels, massive Jotnar climbing out of the cracks in the Earth, and the even more massive dwarven Destroyers as they march on civilization and attempt to enslave the human race! You and your gaming group get to tell the story of a band of metahumans fighting against the Destroyers for the fate of the world. Your Holdfast of heroes might be gifted by mystical runes with superpowers, genetically bonded to the gargantuan bones of a Jotun, or expert at navigating technology and the bowels of the post-Ragnarok computer networks.
