The game is available to pre-order via Free League Publishing’s website. Access to the PDF package is available immediately, with the print edition releasing this fall. The game is also available on DriveThruRPG. A free 48-page Quickstart version is also available.

Free League Publishing states:

Drakar och Demoner originally launched in 1982 and has been Scandinavias largest and most beloved tabletop RPG brand ever since. Now, Free League celebrates its 40th anniversary with a new edition based on the heritage of decades of Swedish gaming, updated through the innovative game design for which Free League has been praised for worldwide.

Dragonbane invites players to experience fantasy adventures of all kinds. However, it is also a game with room for laughs and a pinch of silliness. Do not, however, mistake it for an easy game, for it will present formidable challenges for all adventurers. Free League call this playstyle ‘mirth and mayhem roleplaying’–great for long campaigns, but also perfect for a one-shot.

Tomas Härenstam–who previously worked on Forbidden Lands, Mutant: Year Zero, ALIEN RPG, and Blade Runner RPG–is the lead game designer. He leads a team of writers picked from past and present of the Swedish RPG scene. The lead illustrator is Johan Egerkrans, who previously worked on Vaesen–Nordic Horror Roleplaying. Acclaimed historical fiction author Niklas Natt och Dag also contributed.
