There is no need to develop products specifically for the English market. Assuming you don't want to make a new set of rules* to go with the setting.

In an ideal world**, the order&speed of translation would have been different. The game would be launched with the Core Rules&The Almanac in the same Kickstarter. Beginner friendly content would be translated faster and stuff that caters to the German grognards would be pushed back.


*The first 3 editions of the game were rules light. A rules light 5th edition is not a strange idea.

**The sort of world where Ulisses America can afford (let's say) 20 translators instead of (let's say) 5.

Hey folks,

This conversation is drifting quite a bit. Can we move it into the Setting Discussion forum down below?

Thanks!

I wouldn't mind that.

Having said that. I would like having an updated stickied release schedule at the top of the forum.

Any idea when the 3rd Theater knight Adventure will be released. I started the campaign with the mistaken idea that the 3rd and hopefully 4th adventure would have been released by now. It has been over 7 months since the 2nd adventure was released and I will have to put the campaign on hiatus for now.

We are all trying to push for a more predictable timeline. There were a lot of internal workflow adjustments internally in the second half of 2017, and we are still working on getting things back on track. I will continue to push for more information.

I've postponed starting The Dark Eye with our group for this exact reason. I don't want to be in a situation where we can't run through the full campaign for lack of content. And I'm not interested in translating the German versions to my English speaking group on the fly.

@Eric: an update on the publication schedule would be really appreciated. I would have hoped that we'd be running somewhere around 6 months behind the German publication schedule at this point. Instead, we've lost ground. "Der Schwarze Frost" was published in June of 2016 in Germany. So, on the that campaign, we're more than 1.5 years behind in terms of publication schedule. Any idea what the target is in terms of average lag between English and German publications?
