I guess everyone already read the news of RedBrick showing a preview of the cover art of the 3rd Earthdawn Third Edition core rulebooks Players- and Gamemasters Guide. As I had a close look at the cover of the player's guide I thought: "hm, I know this cover".

And finally I remembered the german fanbook "lost treasures" and its cover made by Kathy Schad.















I think these are great covers and they differ a lot from the old covers so that everyone will recognize: "These are the 3rd Earthdawn Third Edition, the new and exciting core rulebooks for Earthdawn done by RedBrick". But I am also happy that a former fanbook cover made it in a different form to an official cover of Red Brick. Great work Kathy.

Your deja vu might also be because it's the Age of Legend 4E logo and the "new messages" marker on the forums there.

The cover was added to the Verlorene Schätze project later, I think.
The cover of my version of Verlorene Schätze, which I preserved from hard drive to hard drive from the very beginning, is just black and white. It's now on one of the later pages, the windling in front of the flask and other items.
Similarly, my "Kreaturen der Wildnis" has a straight black and white cover.

Both don't have the black frame and do not have Earthdawn written across the cover in the first versions.
