Hey folks,

very nice book! I have flipped through it’s pages once and am now begin­ning to read it more intensely ;)

Now the ques­tion: Would it be pos­si­ble to get a mas­ter copy of the char­ac­ter sheet for easy trans­la­tion? I would love to have a Ger­man copy (and would offer to upload it here), as I have made the expe­ri­ence that role­play­ing gets a strange vibe when all those sheets on the table aren’t in one’s own lan­guage…

Also com­mu­ni­ca­tion loses lots of flair when try­ing to use the for­eign rules terms in an in-​game dis­cus­sion.

That would be great!

I could do the same in French. Depend­ing on which soft­ware you used, I could use yours and do a straight­for­ward trans­la­tion or build up a new one.

Hi Folks,

This seems like a rea­son­able request to us. What for­mat do you want the down­load file in? Do you want the Hi res­o­lu­tion PDF to be avail­able (not editable) or the InDe­sign file (editable). The InDe­sign file was built in ID6 which is not back­wards com­pat­able with older edi­tions of InDe­sign I am told. Just let us know what you want.

Regards,

Phil

I would love to get the editable one, to be able to make it fit­ting to your style (and have there­fore an inte­gral part of the over­all Blade–expe­ri­ence) ;)

I only have InDe­sign 5.5… Can you not save it in a com­pat­i­ble format?

Just let me print them off and fill them in with bro­ken pen­cil stubs, please.

Either that or design it as a cross plat­form app that allows for edit­ing and sync­ing within a gam­ing group on each play­ers indi­vid­ual tablets.

I kid, I kid.

PDF please.

And even that doesn’t seem to work. I guess the plat­form doesn’t allow for things that don’t seem like Eng­lish. :huh:

In any case, no ready idea for a Ger­man trans­la­tion here. Decid­ing on the names for the Attrib­utes was quite a major under­tak­ing for Phil and me, actu­ally. We wanted to have names that have a real ring to them, and for some attrib­utes burned through well over a dozen ideas. I wouldn’t want to repeat that kind of cog­i­tatin’ even in my native German!

So you play in eng­lish with your play­ers in Aus­tria?

In my feel­ing, it kills a lot of immer­sion to play in one’s native lan­guage (in our case not eng­lish) and then hav­ing the rules ter­mini in eng­lish… I will give it a try as soon as I can get the InDesign-​file ;)

It does; but then immer­sion isn’t very high up on my reg­u­lar gang’s list of pri­or­i­ties.

How­ever, my advice would be not to bother attempt­ing to out­right trans­late the names of the Attrib­utes, but to try and find terms of sim­i­lar mean­ing but with a lot of atmos­phere: For exam­ple, using “Muskel­masse” for Brawn, while a decent trans­la­tion, is an exam­ple of how I wouldn’t wanna do it; no ring, no atmos­phere, no nothing.
