The Dark Eye – Aventuria Magic Announcement

Let us begin by discussing spellcasters beyond the walls of our academy. We know quite well that no other tradition devotes as much time to magical research. Even so, we should not assume we alone can develop new magical formulae…

The Dark Eye – Legacy of the Theater Knights Announcement

Bornland is not merely a former province of the Middenrealm. It was in days past the home of the famous Order of the Theater Knights.
