The passage to Midgard

Midgard is one of the Nine Worlds in Norse mythology. It is inhabited by the race of humans and in the Germanic languages means "middle yard".

Midgard mostly makes its appearance in some scenarios of the Fall of the Trident campaign in Age of Mythology, as well as in a single scenario in The New Atlantis.

Fall of the Trident[edit | edit source]

Arkantos, Ajax, Chiron, and Amanra try to reach Midgard, in order to stop Gargarensis from opening the gate of Tartarus.

To do so, they must first regroup their forces after being scattered around by an Avalanche, to a land not far from the Swedish coast, and fight rogue Einherjar and Gargarensis' forces, this being the main focus of the North scenario.

After managing to regroup, the heroes march north, and Amanra notices the group is stalked by two dwarf brothers, Brokk and Eitri. The dwarves later ask for help; their Dwarven Forge (not to be confused with the Dwarven Foundry), found deep within a mountain, is occupied by large groups of Giants, who also happen to block the passage to Midgard. The heroes promise to clear the tunnels of Giants, in exchange for this passage (the main focus of The Dwarven Forge).

After they manage to enter Midgard, the heroes go through harsh misadventures, in order to unite most of the Norse clans, and reach the Well of Urd, the gateway to Niflheim, the Norse Underworld.

Scenarios[edit | edit source]

The New Atlantis[edit | edit source]

Midgard makes another appearance in the ninth scenario (Rampage) of New Atlantis.

The destruction the Atlanteans have caused at Mount Olympus have weakened the power of the gods at holding the Titans imprisoned, them being loose on the world and destroying entire cities, such as Sikyos. For this reason, Kastor, Amanra, and Ajax have traveled north to fight Ymir, who rampages through the land.

They encounter the Frost Giant Folstag, now king of Jotunheim (another of the Nine Worlds) and in peace with the Midgardian humans. He cooperates with the heroes to kill the Titan, before he wreaks more havoc across the land. Eventually, he summons Nidhogg, whose help greatly helps in killing the Titan and bringing peace to the region.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The fact Midgard is considered a location/geographic area in-game is odd, as to the Norsemen, Midgard was the entire world of humans (in essence, Earth), not just another location, such as Troy and Abydos.
