Some months ago someone contacted me and asked me for permission to translate WR&M into German. This wasn’t actually necessary, because the license I released the game under allows that anyway, but it was the nice thing to do. Of course I gave my permission and some time later the guy working on the project sent me his drafts.
Alas since then I haven’t heard anything about that again. Recently more and more people have asked me about a German version of WR&M and so I finally caved in. I am going to do the translation myself. The advantage of doing the translation myself is that I don’t have to slavishly stick to the English version. That makes writing a German version much easier without changing the actual rules.
What I will do is probably include some errata and put the content of “The Art Of Combat” into the core rulebook. I’ll also change the font I used in the layout because it had some issues.
So what does that mean for the English version? Depending on how things work out I may release an errata or even an updated version of the original game. Depending on how much work I am willing to put into it, I might even release a newly laid out version.
If you have found any errors in the WR&M core rulebook or in The Art of Combat, please post those errors in the forums. Thanks!
Yay! Finally! 😀
Oder besser gesagt: Endlich kommt es mal auf Deutsch raus! Sehr cool! 😀
Ich hatte ja gehofft, jemand nimmt mir die Arbeit ab… 😉
Ich und meine Englischkenntnisse… Da kommt dann was vollkommen anderes dabei heraus. ^^
Is this a free product? I followed your link and there was a “Download Now” option, but I got a message saying it couldn’t be found.
It’s free and the download link on the site works for me fine. If you click it, you should be sent to a Google Docs/Drive page and get a preview of the page.
Have you had issues with Google Docs shares before?
Alternatively you can download it on Scribd.
Sadly, I’ve had nothing BUT problems with Google Docs. I clicked the Scribd link, but it wants me to upload something before I can download anything. I understand their reasoning, but alas, I have nothing I can legally upload! Ah, well. C’est la vie, eh?
Apparently today, I’m also having problems with WordPress. That was supposed to be a reply, not a new post, and although I had logged in, it acted like it had never seen me before it its little digital life! (I hope this isn’t an omen for how the rest of the day is going to go!)
