You might also add the recommended experience level of the heroes. So you know wether it's a beginner adventure or for experienced heroes.

I hope Ulisses brings fast new English adventures. The most of the current adventures are only medium quality. In the past there were fantastic adventures in TDE 3 and TDE 4.1. At least the "Historia Aventurica" should be published. It is an awesome product about the history of TDE. It is totally exciting to read what has happened in the past so far. So everybody also can read what's happened in the adventures of TDE3 and TDE4.
Please excuse my bad English, I'm a beginner.

TDE since: 1998
Current TDE rule set: 4.1
Played adventures: 55

Eric, could you update these with the ratings for the Theater Knights Adventures and the New Bonds and Ancient Quarrels from the Warring Kingdoms kickstarter?

Also you said you would write in the suggested experience levels of heroes for the adventures... :mrgreen:

But yes, I can work on that.

No problem Eric. If you have similar tasks in the future, you can always contact me to help you if you don't have time.

Not sure if I should bury this on this thread or start a new one, but what I would really like to see is.
The Core Activity for an adventure.
My reason for asking is this. I only have one player. I want play into the Theatre Knights campaign. We have established him as belonging to a noble family in Bornland with strong ties to church of Rondra. I dont know the religious ranks but the grandfather is fairly important. I have made the family tree, as he is going to meet some of his family in Arivor, then travel back home. But I really need a campaign core activity, not just the individual books.
Then we can link him to that activity. We create an overarching buy in, an emotional stake in the story.
Maybe its included already, but I have only skimmed the first book, as I am also learning the rules, reading and prepping for the current adventure and learning the setting.
All the adventures should have this spelled out, not just location and genre.
So any help would be really good before we go to far and I can lay the ground work now.
Core Activity = Heroes are X and they do Y.
Example, Vampires struggle for power in the undead hierarchy that secretly controls the worlds major cities.

Thanks
