Midgard Atlas: A World of Deep Magic on Your iPad

Posted In Announcements, Articles, Front Page | 11 comments

Midgard Atlas iconThe first app from Kobold Press hit the iTunes App Store this weekend. Midgard Atlas by WyvernX puts the world of Zobeck, the Empire of the Ghouls, and the dwarven Cantons at your fingertips!

Midgard Atlas is an animated, totally zoomable map of the entire heartland of Midgard, from the Western Ocean to the Mharoti Dragon Empire. The $3.99 app includes:

  • Cartography by George R.R. Martin’s cartographer Jonathan Roberts
  • Detailed maps of 9 major cities
  • Removable text
  • …And some cool surprises!

This high-resolution map unlocks all the wild places and fantasy civilizations of Midgard. Take a look at these screenshots after the cut.

Also, there’s still time to pre-order the Midgard Campaign Setting by WolfgangBaur, Jeff Grubb and Brandon Hodge in hardcover and softcover.

  1. Brilliant work here! You’ve taken a fantasy world atlas to a whole new level with this app. I love it! Highly recommended.

  2. Fantastic!

    The eye-candy contained within will give you ophthalmic cavities. Beholder-like beings beware.

  3. Eye-candy for beholders makes me smile. But yes, this is total eye-candy for map geeks.

    It’s already got two reviews, both positive, on the App Store, and two more reviews elsewhere. The main complaint seems to be “OMG make it do more!”

    The one that amused me was the “why isn’t everything from the hardcover in this app?”. Well, because then it would be a book, not an atlas. :)

  4. Oh, and I totally need to set up a poll for what cities should be added to the city-zoom next.

  6. Wishing I had a tablet too like all the cool kids…. App-arently it’s a thing of rare and useful beauty!

    The zoomed out map with the cloud cover looks great, and one really gets a feel for just how big the Midgard world is, and how much is still left unexplored! Wishing I could peer into the Western Ocean and finally see just where those islands are….

    Puh-leeze make a PDF of this!!! :)

  7. Now if only there was a kindle/android version of this, it would be perfect on my tablet

  8. Any chance of a regular PC version?

  9. Unfortunately, a regular PC would need a touch-screen to make this work. That will exist for Windows 8 PCs, but right now that function is pretty much tablet-only.

    A Kindle or Android version will happen when and if an Android developer steps forward. I don’t have the skills to do it, but if you know someone.

  10. I love it. I must add myself to the list of folks saying, make it do more! I think the poll idea is a great idea and I would like to add a vote for other kinds of sites such as a dungeon or two in addition to cities.

  11. Even with the iPad app, I would still buy a PDF version.
