Midgard is a region north of Nora that is united in culture and tribal heritage. The southern and more populous regions of Midgard have a temperate climate. The north extends nearly to the top of the world, but has relatively mild weather for its latitude. Much of the Midgardian mountains have an alpine tundra climate. There are many lakes and moraines as well.

Numerous petty kingdoms and chiefdoms claim the land. Despite many wars over the years, Midgardian tribes and peoples have been politically and socially close. Constellations and alliances, however, have shifted over the centuries.

The two languages of Midgard, Ostwort and Norrwort, are common to all men of the north and are so closely related, command of either of these languages is considered sufficient to communicate fully and professionally with any other Midgardians.
