Re: Mistranslation in Core Rules (Disease "Swamp Fever" p. 344)

bluedragon, thanks for the translation. I can see why they avoided using "hit points" and "wound points" in English as those have distinct connotations to a lot of English gamers. For the English market, using one term (DP) and adding "(ignoring PRO)" works better.

Re: Mistranslation in Core Rules (Disease "Swamp Fever" p. 344)

Interesting discrepancy between German and English. The "(ignoring PRO)" would mean ignoring protection (which the German version probably assumed whereas the English makes it explicit). Logically, there's no way PRO should apply to diseases. [Disclaimer: I'm going from memory and play lot...

Re: This game though!

I was wondering the same thing. I knew there was an English anthology but hadn't heard of any novels. What are they (and where can I get them)?

Re: This game though!

Welcome aboard from another (want-to-be) player in the US. I don't suppose you're in the upper midwest?

Re: Need to run some TORG in the Minneapolis area!

What sort of frequency are you looking at? Any thoughts on which day/time you'll be running?

Re: Ulisses at Gamehole Con?

There are also two other Dark Eye games being run on Saturday by a different GM (not me). I don't have time right now to link them...

Re: Interest for a New PbP Game

I'd be willing to give it a shot. I'm unfamiliar with rpol.net and have only used Discord for pc game group chat (so either would be new to me but I have done email and forum pbp games before).

Re: Dark Eye - Living Aventuria events at GenCon2018

Interesting. I'd love to play but will not be at GenCon. Will Living Aventuria be run at Origins 2019?

Has there been any more news on the official OP program for Dark Eye?

Re: Dark Eye at US Cons 2018?

Unfortunately, IL is pretty much a full day's drive (and I just got back from Origins) so I won't be able to do Quincon.

Any chance of some Dark Eye games on Gamehole Con (it's gotten to be quite large)?

Re: Origins 2018 - Dark Eye

I guess it all depends on how you look at it... To me at least, the 9-14 games are effectively the same as a 10-14 game (which is a common slot). The 15-20 games do knock out the 14-16 half-slot (or 12-16 slot) but end at 20 and a lot of games are 20-24 (though a better 5-hour slot might have been 1...
