For the Swedish speakers, I just put an excerpt on my blog from the short story ”Mercy in Vond” that I'm writing for the game (stretch goal 24). The story features the demon Merigall that I've used Neil Gaimans ”Desire” for as inspiration. The demon will appear in the game. Not translated into English yet I'm afraid (and indeed not even completed in Swedish).

I tried pasting your story into Google Translate, but unfortunately it's not quite up to the task.  :(

Ha, ha, that is pretty standard for the stuff I write since I like to play around with words and expressions. You will see the short story in English eventually of course, and perhaps FL could translate this exerpt pretty soon. It's probaby not the final version though.

Kick-ass! Loved it, especially the descriptions of the two demons. There's nothing better than villainous characters with great personalities :)

If no one beats me to it, I'll try my hand on a quick translation tomorrow. Busy with DM:ing M:Y0 tonight :D

Thanks, and feel free to give it a shot, Fireheart ;-)!

For our English speaking friends: Swedish allows for joining words much more freely than English, and this is very hard for Google Translate to capture, since the combinations are almost uncountable, especially in a literary text with more freedom.

Examples from the text we're talking about:
”Rostbröder” = rust brothers
”Silverspegel” = silver mirror
These are standard combinations, while
”ockradraperad” = draped in ochre
”blodsränder” = stripes of blood
”gallget” = barren goat
are nonstandard and hard to catch.
”Kromberdvärgarnas” = of the Crombe dvarwes
would be virtually impossible

FYI, I've now concluded the short story in first draft and will move on to the campaign's final adventure site (which is connected to the story)
