To zaszczyt!

It finally happened.

After a long process of certificating, proofing and testing his Earthdawn knowledge, I am proud to introduce Sethariel as a co-author to the Earthdawn Blog.

Sethariel 
As some of you might know, Sethariel and I already cooperated many times on several blog posts and interviews that were published on his old blog or over here at the Earthdawn Blog.

Sethariel is already contributing to the polish RPG page gry-fabularne.pl and administrates the earthdawn.com.pl community (formerly earthdawn.pl), but nevertheless I am very proud to have him on board over here.

It’s been 6 years now, just me blogging about Earthdawn and RPG stuff in general. So what can you expect from us two now?

We are planning to mainly report about Earthdawn of course, with some general RPG news. Sethariel will cover the Polish community and I will cover the German news, that surely will come up with the release of the German Earthdawn books by Ulisses Spiele.

We both will try to bring you the recent news and developments of the English community and their fan creations, and of course introduce some of our ideas as well.

I think you’ll hear or read from Seth in a few days, making his debut on the Earthdawn Blog.

Here’s a short interview with Ross Babcock from FASA made by Markus from Ulisses Spiele (German publisher)

 

Daten, Zahlen, Fakten

Hier noch ein kleiner Hinweis für deutsche Earthdawn fans, die oftmals mit den Konvertierungen der Amerikanischen Längemaße und Einheiten zu kämpfen haben. Ulisses hat dazu ein paar Daten, Zahlen und Fakten zusammengetragen.

Recently I stumbled upon the Name-giver Race Size Comparison Chart at the Earthdawn Compendium. I really like the comparison and after a short conversation with Flagg, I was allowed to add it to the blog. I added metric heights to the chart so that the rest of the world can better picture the size differences of the Earthdawn races.

Several Earthdawn news were published during the recent weeks. So I thought it's time for a short roundup over here. 

But first a short question:
I once had a series running on the blog called "Earthdawn World Wide", where various countries with their specific Earthdawn fan community and products (be it fan or official translations) were introduced. And as I see now a "new" Earthdawn Edition rising, I wanted to ask you all, if you've heard sth. from any publisher of your country who is planning to publish the new 4th Edition material in your language?

German Earthdawn page online

Yes, you might already have heard that the German publisher Ulisses Spiele grabbed the rights to publish German Earthdawn books. The German Earthdawn page of Ulisses is now online at http://www.ulisses-spiele.de/sortiment/rollenspiele/earthdawn/.

Interview

Hier mal eine “relativ” wichtige Neuigkeit für deutschsprachige Earthdawn fans, die am 28. von Ulisses Spiele veröffentlicht wurde (danke an Nico):

2014 wird Ulisses Spiele die vierte Edition von Earthdawn in deutscher Sprache veröffentlichen!

Hell yeah! Nach einer “kurzen” Periode des Stillstands, was die Veröffentlichung von deutschem Earthdawn Material betrifft, tut sich wieder etwas auf dem hiesigen Rollenspielmarkt.

Die Übersetzung der vierten Earthdawn Edition plant Ulisses Ende 2014 zu veröffentlichen.
