Re: Looking for Input - Noble Campaign

Personally, in a group that isn't intimately familiar with the setting, I wouldn't worry too much about this. While there are lots of highly specific details in the >30 years of lore, if your players haven't been deeply involved in it I think a fun and engaging story line is more important than gett...

Re: Errata Correction

As far as I know the translations are done by a professional translator who however has German as his native language rather than English. According to the credits the Compendium was translated by Eduard Lerperger, the person I was thinking of. If that's accurate and the translation wasn't outsource...

Re: Comments on TDE Release Schedule

I wouldn't be quite as pessimistic, but I agree that the news this year as well as the communication frequency don't make it look like Ulisses NA has a lot of resources allocated to TDE. The main thing that doesn't fit in for me is the recent Divinity:OS 2 campaign. While I'm sure the German players...

Game master campaign in Divinity: Original Sin 2

As you may have heard, Larian Studios are releasing a campaign to be run in the game master mode of Divinity: Original Sin 2 . Does anyone here have experience with the game master mode? What did you like or not like about it? Is this a collaboration between Larian and Ulisses in Germany, or is Ulis...

[TDE] [Singapore] Looking for players to join existing group

We're a group of 4 meeting in Bishan every other weekend, looking for up to 2 new players due to another player leaving. We primarily play the Dark Eye. Our playstyle is focused on narrative and character development, not so much on tactics and skill optimization. Occasionally we play other game sys...

Re: Trial in Andergast

Since Andergast has a fairly strict feudal system, there are few recorded laws and usually the local ruler passes judgment based on tradition and their own view. If the accused is a low-ranking local noble (let's say a knight in a baron's retinue), the accuser would need to bring the case before the...

Re: Jousting rules

I asked on the German forums and it seems according to their material, jousting works like this: ⋅ Prerequisites: Mounted Combat and Tilt special abilities, 8/5 tournament armor, supply of tournament lances, horse. Some tournaments allow other types of armor as well. ⋅ Encumbranc...

Re: Death Squirrel LP & pain

According to the bestiary death squirrels suffer 1 level of pain at 2 LP, that's it.
I suppose you could rule that they get another level at 1 LP, but how likely is it really that a creature with 3 LP and 0 PRO is going to survive getting hit by anything that does damage anyway?

Jousting rules

We're just getting into Arivor's doom, and one of the PCs is participating in the tournament's jousting discipline during the opening. Can you help us resolve some of the apparent contradictions in the different source books? I'm referring to these sources: ⋅ Arivor's Doom scenario, page 2...

Re: Currency Question

The almanac lists lump (ducat), penny (silverthaler), and slightling (haler). Same value as middenrealmian currency.
