So, the game they will translate into English is not the BRP-based version?

Actually it is already available but only through their online feature (haven't tried that myself). You can find it here Trudvang Chronicles.

I would say Trudvang it is only very distant relative that has grown out of the old DoD Expert system. It uses d20 instead och d100 on skill rolls and they got rid of the Characteristics. Instead you get two positive traits and two negative traits that in areas that used to be the old characteristics (like STR, DEX and so on) that give a bonus or penalty on certain rolls and help with some skills. The new part is a kind of Talent trees that help further define your character and granting abilities and give bonuses to certain skills. It as been a while since I played Trudvang myself. Usually I just steal the world and use BRP, RQ6 or Rolemaster for the rules instead.

Yes the Trudvagn system(s) has always been an bit odd.. I have several times tried to make use of the rules.. But things in the system bugs me too much..  
And I go for easier systems Or systems thats well explained.. Rq 6 is the most complicated game system I can take.

Update!!  you Can pre-order the game from Sfbok, in September,( doubt it Will be ready then, they are doing playtesting of the system now.)

But on the blurb at Sience fiction bokhandeln does it state: that it Will have a Resistance table!! It Will be using 1d100, easy pick up and play system using somethings from the expert version of the game.( probably crafting skills) race+ proffesion for starting skills. Yepp, fall is going to be good.. (i hope)

Yes, that is the "New"  system or rebooted Drakar och Demoner.  well New and New is it 10+ years, old... The world, is fantastic the art is top notch, its a Brp derivated versión. But its not the game I talk about in the start of the thread, thats original magic world tweaked its was the roleplaying game you played in Sweden in the 80 s.

No. Nothing have so far have gotten translated to English and I doubt it will in the foreseeable future. To be honest the game was very disappointing. It is still usable but they removed and added new things that made no sense at all and very poorly proofread texts that makes you think they rushed the product. BUT THE ART WAS GORGEOUS!. Many others in Sweden are of similar opinion as me, but I do know of several groups that despite the rules are running successful and entertaining games with Drakar och Demoner 2016 as it is called nowadays. But the company RiotMinds who released Drakar & Demoner 2016 have released their other games in English. Especially Trudvang Chronicles is a very nice setting and the game is distantly related to DoD and BRP with tons of gorgeous art (as most of their products are). Even though I don't like the rules in Trudvang Chronicles to much. The rules are not bad but they just don't cater to my taste so I usually use another ruleset of my own taste in the setting. Been thinking about using Mythras for it next time. But have to sit down and see if I can capture the feel of the magic and religions of the Trudvang world (shouldn't be to hard by creating Cults and Brotherhoods for the setting).

I’m afraid not. The retro version is only in Swedish. The closest you can get is Trudvang Chronicles from the same company. As said earlier, Trudvang Chronicles is a quite distant relative to BRP. Some people love the system, some not so much. But the art and setting is fantastic.

That's a huge bummer. Has there ever been any english translations of DoD?

No, I don’t think so. But over the years, Drakar och Demoner 6 evolved into what is now called Trudvang Chronicles - both in Swedish and English. The setting is intact from DoD 6 and many of the books for it has simply been translated and the stats updated to follow the new not-quite BRP.

Well we swedes have to write and translate our own DoD english version... And pay the artist to do another batch of awsome art...

Should we call it DoD 2020.....???
