Dark Sagas

Watermarked PDF

Dark Sagas is a fantasy roleplaying game that pays homage to the games of old while having a more modern and consistent rules engine. It shares the same basic mechanic as it's swedish version - MÖRKA SAGOR, but it also has some differences; where Mörka Sagor is a skill-based game with free-form character development, Dark Sagas instead has a class-based character creation system, paying homage the the 1981 basic edition of the world's oldest roleplaying game.

The basic 2d6 rules engine is the same however for both games.You only need six-sided dice to play this game.

A prined version can also be found at Lulu:

Hello Mikael.
I recently purchased all your games and I must say I am impressed.
However I need More.
So are there any plans to release an expansion for Dark Sagas?

I've been trying to get in touch with you. You are a hard man to track down. I'm looking at purchasing a hard cover copy of Dark Sagas and wanted to find out if the errors listed by Luca C below have been corrected. I've also emailed you but haven't heard back. Thanks!

Sorry for the delay, I'm having a timeout from publishing due to an increased workload. An update is on the way, both for the PDF and the printed version. The updated PDF will be available today (tuesday, July 16th, 2019) and the updated printed version will be available friday, July 26th, 2019).

As for the errors:

Page 34: Defence score is correct as written: it's 8 + DEX (+Shield), not 7, I sadly mixed it up with my other game Dungeon Questing.

Regarding the monsters, here's the missing numbers:

Minotaur: Physical Resistance 5
Rakshasa: Physical Resistance 6
Roc: Physical Resistance 8
Sabretooth: Physical Resistance 4
Treant: Physical Resistance 6 (the printed book shows this correctly)
Wolf: Physical Resistance 3
Wolf Beast: Physical Resistance 4

Language: You start with rank 3 in your native language and a number of additional language ranks equal to your Knowledge score. You can invest these extra Points on...See more

Hi, I found a couple of errors on the pdf (nothing very important, anyway) :
on page 34 under "defence" is written : defence is equal to 8 plus dex+shield...
on page 107 - 108 "attacking and defending" : Defence score is equal to 7+dex+shield... (the same on the table on p.108)
I think I'll take the 7+ rule, is it the right one?
Another thing I've noticed is that some monsters' lacking the physical resistance score (minotaur, rakshasa, roc, sabretooth, treant, wolf, wolf beast).

And thank you again for the great work!

Argh, a typo! You are right, the correct version is 7+Dex (+shield).

I need to recheck the monsters and make the necessary adjustments in the PDF and post an errata in the google+ Community, thank you for notifying me!

Best Regards, MHGames

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
