Create a pitch for The Dark Eye

When someone asks you about that game you're playing, or the game you're suggesting to play, how do you summarize it? Whenever this happens to me, I find it difficult to give a brief, concise answer that describes what this game is and what makes it fun to play. Ideally I'd like to find a 10-15 seco...

Re: Tell me about the Arrows of Light.

Inquisition, basically. Track down and stop heretics, traitors, or deviants, saving the souls (and if possible, lives) of innocents. They're a fairly hierarchical group following orders from leadership of the white guild, but may also be assisting the church of Praios or local rulers when the need a...

Re: Tell me more about the Seven Spheres.

I would just make stuff up to fill in the blanks. If you get access to more information you can incorporate it later, but that's no reason to be held back. Don't assume in-game effects without confirming with your GM ("I happen to know just the right demon for this, and it's super easy to summo...

Re: Simplified Character Sheet

How about just using the first page of the sheet? You can ditch the skills, the combat, the magic and handle everything as individual attribute checks. Clearly the full list of skills needs a page of its own (just due to quantity) and the combat things another half page, so if you want to retain tho...

Re: Later-life consecration and Tradition (Rahja)

Thanks a lot for the traduction.... do you have any others ? I have german version of Magic I , God I and Kompendium II but the translation is difficult. We made our translations manually from the German rules wiki. Are you looking for anything in particular? If there are just a handful of things I...

Re: How does your TDE campaign work?

I do think it would be good to have a conversation with the group about character scaling. If they are expecting a high-scaling game where their characters will become demigods or at least legendary heroes beyond the capacity of any mortal they may be a bit disappointed. There are people who play TD...

Re: Later-life consecration and Tradition (Rahja)

Thank you all for your ideas! We have decided to liberally apply the "Decreased Karma Points" and "Weak Regeneration" disadvantages so they give us a gradual progression towards becoming a Blessed One. We also found the liturgies and moral principles in German sources and were ab...

Re: How does your TDE campaign work?

On AP/XP, I've tried many different models in different games over the years. In my TDE group, we eventually settled on a flat amount of AP per session to keep things simple and avoid debates over why this week we got less AP than last week, or why player A didn't get a bonus for that cool thing she...

Re: Magic I - Kickstarter

Not sure about what will be in Magic I, but the existing supplement Warring Kingdoms introduces druids at a similar level of depth as the core rules introduce mages and witches.

Re: How does your TDE campaign work?

Different game systems have their strengths and weaknesses depending on what sort of story you're looking to experience. One big difference in the comparison to D&D is that D&D is an asymmetric system (different rules for PCs and random commoners, e.g. class levels), while TDE is a symmetric...
