Role-playing

Role-playing is a two-sided hobby for me: playing and writing. Depending on circumstances, one might be more important than the other, but they are quite different. Here, both are in focus, although the latter is by far the most important (reading about other people's playing is seldom interesting). First, I'll go through a couple of important projects, some of them I'm currently working on, some have been closed for a long time. At the very end is a list of all role-playing related posts on this website.

Kaleidoskop (bilingual) - This is a trademark used by myself and four friends. We've played together for a long time and since all of us are interested in writing role-playing related texts, this is our common channel for publication.

Magneter och mirakel - A five-year project to write a steam punk game with advanced electricity and magnetism instead od steam. This project is nearing completion, see this post (in English) for more details.

Nyx (1.03+) - Nyx is my own rule system, focusing on the characters place in the story rather than trying to simulate their existence in the game. It will be officially published as a part of Magneter och mirakel. See below for published versions.

Nostalgi (2nd edition) - This is a revision of the first version of the game (see below). Essentially, it will be the same game, but better in almost every regard. It will also provide more support and help for players. The game will hopefully be finished in September 2009.

Haragada (2nd edition) - This is a completely new approach to the first version of the gamme (see below). The rules will be similar, but the presentation will change drastically. The game will hopefully be finished in September 2009.

Antioch (Swedish) - Antioch was an online, text-based role-playing game started by me and a friend in 2005. It lasted almost four years and more than 800 gaming sessions. It was officially closed down in early 2009. The website is in Swedish and will remain open for nostalgic reasons.

Tornet mot stjÀrnorna (Swedish) - This is my first freelancing project, written for Krister Sundelin of RÀvsvans förlag. I've written some personal reflections on the project here.

Nostalgi (Swedish) - In this lightweight game, the players assume the roles of old heroes who use their tales of past glories to impress their grandchildren. Of course, nobody really remembers what happened anymore, so exaggeration and outright lying is part of the game. This game was co-authored by me and Martin Ackerfors, which is available for online purchase on Lulu (follow the above link).

Haragada (Swedish) - A sword and sorcery game set in the desert city of Haragada. This is a joint project between all members of Kaleidoskop, incorporating the T12 rules system. Haragada is a joint project with all members of Kaleidoskop, which is available for online purchase on Lulu (follow the above link).
