DRAGONS AND DEMONS




Hearken ye brave adventurers!

Today I can proudly announce that I´m doing the interior illustrations for the illustrious swedish roleplaying game Drakar och Demoner (Dragons and Demons). For the non-Swedish readers this game is as legendary for swedes as Dungeons and Dragons is to english speakers - since it´s debut in 1982 it has sold over 100.000 copies. 

The game will be very much a back to basics deal: black box with the old logo and Wheelan cover, the old Ereb Altor setting, ducks as a playable race and so on. 

The kickstarter is live now and the game is to be released the coming summer: 
Kickstarter: Drakar och Demoner


Nu är det dags! Med er hjälp kommer vi att göra en nyutgåva av Drakar och Demoner (den version som kallas den tredje versionen, 87:an).

  1. Ducks as a playable race? The illustration sells it. Will this be released in English?

  2. Hi Johan,

    Upon hearing that you got the job as illustrator (congrats on that, by the way!) I felt I had to send you a picture of a different looking duck to try to coerce you to look at other sources than the "official Disney source books" (i.e. Donald Duck).

    Ducks are an awesome part of Drakar och Demoner but much of how they are portrayed in the old picures make them look purely like a joke and tend to put players of from playing them. Personally I would love to see some new twists to the duck-design. :)

    The duck in the picture stems from a game world called Glorantha, if I rememeber correctly.

    Anyhow, and any way you decide to go with your illustrations - looking forward to seeing your work!

    Best regards,
    Erik
