Äventyrsspel Omnbibus

Summary in English: Bought a book on the catalogue of Äventyrsspel, a company that produced loads of RPG in mostly Swedish in the eighties and nineties. Hence, nostalgia galore!

Ja, så kom den dagen, Äventyrsspelsboken med intevjuer från inblandade och fantastiska bilder. Den här är ett måste i bokhyllan hos en stor den av 70- och 80-talisterna, spelet Drakar & Demoner såldes i över 100 00 exemplar om en räknar alla utgåvorna. Jag och många med mig spenderade en mycket stor del av vår ungdomstid med äÄventyrsspels produkter.

Vi som förköpte fick även en tjusig affisch och ett klistermärke som jag genast förärade datorn. Den här är också bra som introduktion för föräldrar och partners som undrar vad vi höll på med egentligen.

Oerhört inspirerande läsning, få en massa uppslag till kampanjer, saker måste målas och knepiga situationer som behöver redas ut. Köp boken på en massa ställen, tex här.

 

 

Awakened force

Yeah, today is the day that its airing in Sweden. Thirty years has passed since the last one.

This year is also the year that Leigh Brackett would have turned 100.
If that doesnt ring any bells please check her up, she was one of the pioneers in the space opera genre and really giving women protagonists a place in her novels.

Her reputation was so great that she was contracted by Lucas do write the screenplay for the Empire strikes back. Unfortunately she passed away in cancer before she got the opportunity to see the finished results. And sadly the plans for spin-off novels with Leia and Han Solo were´nt realised.

Here´s a good summary of her works, which gives a few pointers of where to start digging for the treasures in her extensive catalogue.

And of course I´m going to see new movie, it will be a great source of inspiration and topic for discussion in the upcoming weekends.

PSA: Reading tips before the post-apo!

So, I like sci-fi. And RPG. I also like a good story.

Therefore I’m thrilled that this is happening:

New book!

About twenty years ago I borrowed Mutant and Mutant 2 from one of my cousins. I still got them to this day, don’t tell him ok? The setting in the RPG was marvellous.

Recently, Fria Ligan did a reboot and published Mutant: År noll through a great kickstarter.

By now it’s also available in English as Mutant: Year Zero.
UPDATE: Get it from the Modiphius webstore

Please check it out, it’s worth it.

Today I learned that the multitalented game designer / ex-military/ horror writer Anders Fager is releasing a bunch of short stories within that universe in just a few weeks from now. (In Swedish that is.)

I can hardly wait.
