The North Hammer Saga is an episodic, multimedia fantasy adventure, encompassing music, art, and playable content for the world’s most famous tabletop roleplaying game. Each month, they will release a brand-new song and a fifth edition-compatible module, taking the audience from humble beginnings to lands and perils vast and unknown, as part of a story they and their friends get to experience first-hand through music and gameplay.
New Noise are proud to premiere The North Hammer Saga’s latest track, “Majesty,” below:
From the minds of Andrew James (North Hammer), Chris Grenville (co-founder, The Monolith) and Alex Carter (co-founder, Kardavox Academy), the North Hammer Saga will take you on an immersive journey that will be different for each and every person.
Launching April 13 via YouTube and Patreon, the North Hammer Saga will offer followers a breadth of content based around an unfolding narrative set in a rich fantasy setting, released throughout the month, every month. Firstly, patrons will receive an exclusive download of a brand-new original song.
After the release of their debut album, 2018’s Stormcaller, composer Andy James wanted to take future releases in a different direction, weaving the music style and lyrical content into a cohesive, multifaceted package. Each track will interweave, lyrically and thematically, with an ongoing epic set within the expansive North Hammer universe.
Subscribers will also get access to roleplaying adventure content, compatible with the world’s best-known roleplaying game. Accompanied by gorgeous artwork, modules will include social encounters, combat, puzzles, mysteries, and the opportunity to play as multiple characters as divergent plotlines split both focus and locale.
Backers will also receive alternate versions of each song in a different style with each release, as well as longer mood-setting pieces designed to accompany gameplay. All of these will also be available to stream on Spotify and YouTube. The community will also be offered the chance to shape future content – song styles, adventure hooks, custom player options and more – via an open Discord community, as well as participate in Q&A sessions where the North Hammer Saga’s creators will give deeper insight into the music, the world and its lore, the creation process, and more.
New tracks will be downloadable for patrons at Patreon, or available to stream on YouTube, Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music.
