Re: What brought you to Aventuria?

The Realms of Arkania series, most specifically Star Trail (part 2 of RoA). Its still the best pc rpg of all time in my mind.

Re: English TDE Books

Many many years ago I found in an English bookstore „the charlatan“ by Kiesow himself Looked around on amazon and found it, it's listed as Realms of Arkania: The Charlatan. Likely connected with the Northlands Trilogy that came out in the early 90's. I may pick that up since I'm in the midst of a p...

Summoning during combat

Both demon summoning and elemental summong takes a really long time in TDE 5e, even if the caster uses modifications to lower the summoning time. The lowest I can see right now using the core rules is 5 min to summon an elemental and 30min to summon a Hesthot. Any idea why this was changed from prio...

Re: Some Magic Errata, Perhaps?

@JohnK It is possible to decrease casting times by taking penalties. There is full detail and a very important table in the Magic chapter (and also in the end of the book where all the important tables are reprinted) that explains this. I recall I wanted a way to summon demons in combat like you cou...

Aventuria or Arkania (and Astral Energy vs Arcane Energy)

So, the Realms of Arkania PC games (of the 90s) was my first exposure to The Dark Eye. They are in my opinion the best RPGs of all time, especially Star Trail. However, I am a bit confused about the name of the continent where the game takes place. Was it Arkania before 5e, and renamed to Aventuria ...

Re: Tell us about your game

I've started running TDE games for a group of players who are new to table top RPGs. I have previous experience playing DSA 3 and the Realms of Arkania games, but this is the first time I've acted as GM for any DSA/TDE game. I've started my group with the Quick Start, then went to "Witches' Dan...

Re: Realms of Arkania remake

I took a chance and bought it. The biggest issues seems to be the inability to rotate the camera in combat and buggy load screens. Scenery, such as trees, can obstruct the view of combat and being able to rotate the camera would solve this. If there is a way to do this, I haven't figured it out. Loa...

Re: Realms of Arkania remake

Startrail HD released. For now mostly positive reviews on steam. I hope that is much better than first one.

Re: Greetings from the States...

Piggybacking. I'm new here, too.

Just bought - I guess it's 5th Edition, but DSA has been on my radar since Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny
