Commisioned themes for Trudvang Chronicles: Muspelheim

One of the most famous and biggest tabletop and roleplay games manufacturers are Riotminds and they create games such as Drakar och Demoner (Trudvang Chronicles) and Götterdämmerung (Lex Occultum). They have several very successful Kickstarter projects behind them and fans all over the world.

As I did the score back in 2012 for “Thronelander”, a Trudvang Chronicles Featurette, I came to enjoy Riotminds even more than before. I later composed the music to their book release of the book “Kabal”, the teaser of Götterdämmerung (Lex Occultum) and 2015 the Original Soundtrack with music from the featurette and also a short film “Giltes Bane” (also 2012). Since then we have been busy working on other projects, so it was a no brainer when I got contacted to compose and produce 5 pieces of music for their second complete regional sourcebook for the world of Trudvang: Muspelheim. The book focus on what’s under the surface of Trudvang, into the realm of the dwarves. This is an extensive book covering the dark and stony underworld beneath the lands of humans and elves.

My participation became official today as their Kickstarter unlocked the stretch goal “Drums of the Deep” consisting of me creating 5 Trudvang Muspelheim themes.
