Compendium II

Postby Morgoth » Thu Jun 06, 2019 5:10 pm

Can any German players tell us what is in Compendium II, as it will be a LONG time until the english language translation is available?

And was there ever an Armory II? (I love the Aventurian Armory book, its one of the things that makes TDE so awesome; an entire hardcover for nothing but mundane, non magical equipment full of artwork and special rules for said equipment & weapons without making it about magic!!)

And is there a compendium III also out?

Aventuria Armory 2

Aventuria Armory 2 is a beautiful book. I absolutely love the cover art and am very fortunate to have a print of it. Hopefully, we will have in in English sometime in 2020 or 2021. But there are so many other books more essential to the world, I certainly can't promise you that. I don't have a Compendium II so I can't answer that question.

Compendium II is a great followup to the first one.
I got mine when it came out and I've steadily translated essential portions for my gaming group. Just some of the stuff includes:
    Extended rules for healing including amputations!
    Alchemy stuff
    Animal companions
    House/Castle building rules
    Lots of mundane profession stuff
    Boxing rules
    Bladed fans
...just to name a few

In addition to the stuff mentioned above the Compendium 2 also expands the idea of styles to mundane professions. So you have a style for pickpockets and butchers and artists and etc..

These styles allow for special abilities that are tied to the style and only available through the style just like combat styles and mage profession styles.

There are more combat abilities and rules to tie critical hits and botches to damage and effects based on severity and location.

just to make something clear: in the german version of the compendium 2 is a special ability named "beer brewer" which allows you to brew beer. Thats a mistake, because beer brewing is already a standard option of "Lebensmittelbearbeitung" (handling food? cooking.) and was just forgotten. I hope they will take it out for the english version :D
