Drakar och Demoner (Swedish for Dragons and Demons, in Sweden commonly referred to by the abbreviation "DoD") is a Swedish fantasy role-playing game first published in 1982 by the game publishing company Äventyrsspel ("Adventure Games", later renamed Target Games).

The first edition was basically a translation of Steve Perrin's Basic Role-Playing (which in turn is based on RuneQuest) combined with the Magic World booklet. No joke - it is actually NOT a ripoff of DnD, despite the common alliteration.

The game and setting is the best ever which is not at all a reflection of anyone's rose-coloured glasses or 80s soft-rock nostalgia. FFS it includes PIRATE DUCKS. Ducks who are pirates! And have swords and boats and go around getting all Viking up in your island tavern and crap.
