"Drakar och Demoner" decrypted.

Have you ever played Drakar och Demoner?

Probably not. And neither do i.
It was first published in 1982 and so it belongs to the kind of stuff i deal with on this blog, namely vintage fantasy role-playing games.

Sometimes the language can be an insourmountable barrier and prevents us to have a new gaming experience.
Until someone decides to translate a game in order to present it to the english-speaking world.

That is why, we'll probably be able to have a glimpse of this old fantasy rpg for the first time, thanks to this kickstarter.

It corresponds to the 8th incarnation of DOD, called Trudvang.

Is this the rpg that spawned the chronopia miniatures game? That looks like elric on the cover, though. Looks like something I'll have to check out.

Love your posts. I am fascinated with the dawn of the hobby and especially the third party offerings. Keep up the good work.

The cover art (by Whelan?) is the same of the Stormbringer rpg by Chaosium.

Chronopia was based on the same rules system. It went through a few different settings.

Rules-wise, the edition depicted is like a slightly simplified Runequest with the magic system from MagicWorld bolted on. It was awesome.
