Ropecon and a new Finnish fantasy role-playing game

Ropecon was just last weekend and a friend of mine, the writer of Cafe Lax, published a role-playing game there: Bliaron. Apparently it sold quite well.

It is written in Finnish and the book looks really good. The setting is a bronze-age fantasy land, with a strong emphasis on magic. There are also political undertones about who gets to use it. The world is also animistic, with everything consisting of spirits that the mages then try to influence.

The game is very rules light, while being very traditional in style, with a game master and the rest playing characters each. The game is probably particularly suitable for new players, but if it sounded interesting I suggest you pick it up and give it a try.
