Confounded Furriners! Why Can’t They Just Talk American?

Several readers emailed to let me know that The Dark Eye, the RPG mentioned yesterday, is probably Das Schwarze Auge, a popular fantasy RPG in Germany. I should have looked more closely at all the German-language stuff on the FanPro home page, seeing as how I linked to it and all. So apparently there’s an English version coming out, maybe, which one reader claims was showcased last Gen Con as “Chronicles of Aventuria.” Another reader says you can also get a taste of the game world in a computer RPG called Realms of Arcadia, though searching on that again turned up nothing. Thanks to everyone who wrote to school us. See, this is what I love about Internet journalism – it’s really about aggregating the knowledge of the readers, as well as the editors.
