RiotMinds announces Trudvang Adventures, tabletop RPG for 5E

Stockholm 2020-05-11. Swedish games publisher RiotMinds today announced the upcoming release of Trudvang Adventures, a full adaptation of the critically acclaimed award-winning RPG setting, for 5E. The game is based on the successful “Trudvang Chronicles” campaign world setting that was voted “The most anticipated game of the year” by the ENWorld community upon its release.

Trudvang Chronicles has served thousands of players worldwide for more than a decade. “For several years now, we’ve been asked by players to adapt Trudvang Chronicles to the popular 5E system. With interest in the game higher than ever, along with the incredible rise of our Kickstarter community, we have decided that now is the right time to make this happen,” says Magnus Malmberg of RiotMinds.

Trudvang Adventures 5E (TA5E) is anchored in a unique world setting of fused Celtic and Nordic myths and sagas. TA5E players are afforded the opportunity to explore the incredibly rich and visually stunning fantasy setting of Trudvang Chronicles while still remaining familiar and accessible for players of 5E. Both players and DMs will feel instantly at home and comfortable with the TA5E toolsets for their epic campaigns.

Trudvang Chronicles is licensed and translated for use in a number of countries and is also the basis for the new board game Trudvang Legends. The Trudvang Legends board game is scheduled for release later this year and is produced and published by renowned game design company CMON.

“We envision this as an opportunity to reach a broader audience with 5E being another tentpole in our strategy to serve our player community and expand the Trudvang brand. However, for fans of the original Trudvang Chronicles RPG, rest assured that we will continue to support that game with an array of new supplements and adventures. We have an exciting and extensive release plan ahead – we can’t wait to share more information soon.” Magnus Malmberg concludes.
Trudvang Adventures will be launched as a Kickstarter campaign May 23rd 2020.

So Trudvang does look amazing, but can anyone comment more on the content? In particular, is the fluff inspiring and does the world have a solid feel to it? I like settings that are well-written and make me feel that they are real. I am guessing the vibe is dark, gritty and cold right?

The fluff is superb with the caveat that it is superb for low level Player Characters who want to experience a more authentic game world inspired by old fairy tales instead of the "everything, even the kitchen sink" that modern Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition has become, from Theros to Eberron to Wildermount there is no tangible substance to the D&D fantasy anymore.

Hence, for those Players who want "everything, even the kitchen sink" sort of fantasy world, then Trudvang may feel too limited.

But some of us enjoy the rich depth but limited breadth that third parties have offered D&D, something that Wizards of the Coast has abandoned in trying to be all things to all people. A bit like what happened to the fantasy diluted Pathfinder, with androids in Pathfinder predating their appearance in Starfinder, or if we go really old school, then even Gary Gygax's Expedition to the Barrier Peak that brought robots and spaceships to what looked like old school fantasy.

Sounds like it was written more with Middle-Earth in mind than the Forgotten Realms or Golarion., which is good in my book for a change of pace.

It's closer to Middle Earth than FR or Golarion, but it's closer to Viking myths than Middle-Earth. The closest modern analogy I'd use is the Midgard of the latest God of war game.
