Sir Ragnar or Sir Manfred?

Postby lestodante » Friday January 11th, 2019 2:58pm

Probably all of us know that this paladin is somewhere called Sir Ragnar and somewhere else Sir Manfred.
But I checked some of the questbook and seems that only in Italy he is Manfred and in France Ragnard.
Can't understand the Greek version and can't check on the German neither.
So can you please tell me what his name is in your country?

USA - Ragnar
English - Ragnar
Dansk - Ragnar
Deutsch - Ragnar
Ελληνικά - Ράγχναϱ (Ragnar)
Español - Ragnar
Français - Ragnard
Italiano - Manfred
日本語 - none
Nederlands - Ragnar
Norsk
Português - Ragnar
Suomi
Svenska
New Zealand - Ragnar

For years I believed that he was Sir Manfred in Europe and Sir Ragnar only in the NA version. Incredible I realized only yesterday.
So from now on he will be Ragnar for me also! But curious to heard from other countries too; I will update the first post as you will answer.
I don't know why in Italy we always change titles, especially to the movies.
Also on the back of the Questbook there is a fast guide about painting miniatures and in the Italian version they removed the name of Mike McVey, who painted the figures printed on the box sides. :o

Is there a PDF copy of the Italian Questbook floating around with the painting guide in it?

In the Dutch version, it's Ragnar as well.

By the way, you could check the various quest books that can be found on the main site here, since they are available in like 11 different languages.
