A swedish skill-based fantasy RPG that has become very popular since its release. It is designed with their own game world, Mundana, in mind and has many of the well-known themes, like elves and dwarves, represented, though with a slightly different and interesting approach. The dice system is almost entirely based on 6-sided dice. Skills range from 5 to 20-25 in general, though without an upper limit, and you roll 3d6 for a normal skill roll, attempting to roll equal to or less than your skill value. Any dice that land on 6 are replaced with two new dice, making the roll open-ended. Combat is not based on 'hit points' as such, but rather three sections of values, Trauma - Pain - Bleeding, that together determine added difficulty of rolls, blood loss, chance to pass out and chance to die. The magic system is interesting as well, based on 'aspects' of power that you channel into 'effects', which in turn can be combined to form a formalized 'spell' or used as-is, which is a little more difficult but much more dynamic. No english translation of the game is available yet.
