1987: I started to work on the world for my Pen & Paper group, as I felt constrained by the settings of Middle Earth. In which I had played as GM since I bought Middle Earth Role Playing in the summer of 1984.
1990: The group stopped playing and I halted the work to attend family and work.
2001: The project was dusted off, and a decade of notes was reshaped into a refreshed setting.
2004: I began making it into an indie ‘MORPG’ as I thought it would be easier to gather remote groups playing ‘Isles of Midgard’.
2008: The Alpha server died. Hard disks ruined beyond recovery, work on the MORPG halted. But the 1200 pages of setting and characters, kept growing as a base for renewed RPG.
2016: An old P&P friend asked me about the board game idea from back then. And I decided to renew work on that version, as both RPG and MORPG development was too time consuming. The development process began that autumn and could be followed at Facebook & Instagram
2017: In January a prototype of the board game was ready and testing began.
2018: Seemingly at roads end with the core mechanics of the board, shaping pieces and refining art began. The website was also revamped and a Wiki started which will elaborate on the world and tie up all notes.
2020: During all the years its also been a wish to create it as a miniature table top game, so army lists and an army builder application is being worked on.

As I’m Danish and haven’t English as prime nor as perfect as I would like, I could offer an apology for my poor English Grammatic in advance. But, as I feel an urge to communicate [make common] my fantasy project, rather than spend time learning English proper prior presenting IoM…
-so please bear with me.
