Re: Dark Eye solo modules?

I was curious to find a list of all Dark Eye solo modules (from 1st to 4.1 edition)? In addition to the above list, there's also http://www.dsa-games.de with German (duh) digital ~DSA4 solo adventures (some adaptations of books from earlier editions as well as (later on) some originals - including ...

Re: Official Launch Date Announcement!

and players getting one attack per type (melee/ranged/magic) per round. I have actually tried playing duels without this restriction, and I can definitely say the game is not balanced for it. Arbosh and Mirhiban are WAY too powerful without restricting them to a single attack of each type. I can un...

Re: Official Launch Date Announcement!

Let's see... just rattling points off the top of my head but: ⋅ It's a must-not-be-called-LCG. And with a more humane release cycle than FFG's at that. ⋅ It's got must-not-be-called-tapping. Which isn't exactly unusual by any means, but I love it nonetheless. ⋅ On a sur...

Re: demigods birth question

Another (IMHO better) definition is: Demigods are entities who can grant karmic energy but don't reside in Alveran. That's the crucial one. The standard definition - largely based on Hellenic mythology and analogous to real world terminology like halfbrother or halfbreed - of demigod that AFAIK eve...

Re: Kickstarter Thoughts

Well, sure, but a basic |¯|_|¯| cardboard insert is industry standard, so while having something fancier may give them bonus points for a premium feel, neglecting to do so wouldn't hurt them any, either, I think.

Re: Names in Aventuria

And there is also an official book coming up "Aventurian Names" :) With crunch. ... ... Seriously. Feels forced, but I'm still looking forward to this in-depth take on the ever-crucial matter of what the hell to name your characters. Oh, and it also includes an appendix about names for mo...

Re: Kickstarter Thoughts

Is there a chance that the game inside might be different from the German box insert? For example an inlay where the the health point markers have their space and the different decks have a place to live. Maybe even a revised rulebook which allows you to have the rules for the Adventure mode comple...

Re: First insight from GenCon

I have the German version. It feels like a "RPG light", like a dungeon crawler maybe. I really like it :) I thought as much. Adventure mode heavily reminds me on Descent I'd deem "heavily" to be overstating things more than a bit. There are some notable similarities to co-op dun...

Re: Sell me on Aventuria

I've always wanted to run a campaign based on Anglo-Saxon Britain, but not literally in Britain. Can TDE accommodate me here? ...Somewhat? Maybe? The Quarrelling Kingdoms and neighboring Albernia are kind of the (coastal-continental) British Isles of Aventuria, but they're mostly Anglo-Norman and C...
