“After playtesting Dragonbane extensively over the last two months, I think this might be the best game to teach new players how to play in an RPG I have ever come across.

“This most certainly makes me not even want to look back at D&D 5e! It is exactly what I want a fantasy system to be, and is great for both one shots and long campaigns.”

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.

The mythology revolves around the eternal struggle between dragons and demons. The ruins of fallen kingdoms, that once worshipped either of these rival godlike creatures, beckon brave adventurers with the lure of hidden treasures.

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.
