Most folks know how fond of books I am.
Well, I received a rather large, heavy load of books in the mail from Amazon today.
In addition to Fran Wilde‘s Cloudbound, I also received the massive art porfolio by Mark Schultz, a book of Swedish folk tales, a book of Swedish faerie tales, a book of Norwegian folk tales, two books of Swedish faerie tales and mythology, a book of Norwedian faerie tales and stories, Garth Nix‘s latest book, Goldenhand, and a copy of Beowulf with annotations.
That should all keep me busy until my shipment of the Trudvang Chronicles RPG arrives sometime in May, huh? NOT! 🙂

Something that I haven’t done so far…
One of the Kickstarters that I’ve been backing for the last month or so is the Trudvang Chronicles RPG Kickstarter project.
What is The Trudvang Chronicles? Trudvang Chronicles is an award-winning fantasy roleplaying game published in Swedish in 2000 by RiotMinds (with a revised edition in 2006) based on the mysterious and dark Nordic and Celtic sagas and myths. This is a world of enchanted forests, trolls, dragons, spirits of nature, heroes and adventures. Trudvang is both grim and dark, epic and yet down to earth, with a melancholy tone of an ancient age when nature was a living creature and magic was wild and strong. But above all, Trudvang is a saga. And this marvellous game is now being brought to the English audience.
While I am really fond of Norse mythology and gaming (as most of those who follow my blog know), most (if not all) Norse inspired roleplaying games are about Vikings or about the pre-Viking cultures and societies. The Trudvang Chronicles is a fantasy rpg inspired by the Norse and Celtic myths, with stunning artwork, a detailed game world that invokes the Scandinavian inspirations, and isn’t about Vikings (per sé ).
The Kickstarter for the game has already brought in over 2.4 million SEK (Swedish currency), and has almost 3,000 backers for the game. Given the Kickstarter is in its last 20+ hours or so, if you have any interest in this mythology and the kind of game world that The Trudvang Chronicles offers, please take a look at the Trudvang Chronicles RPG Kickstarter, and if it appeals to you, pledge around it in these final hours.
