I recently bought Elfen Banner, the german translation of Elven banner. This version is designed for AD&D of course but there is characteristics for Midgard and DSA too. The strange think is that there is no mention to roleaids anywhere. No licence or copyright.
Does anyone know why and if another roleaids module has been translated?

I think there may have been a mention of what was translated on afterglows old site...

It is archived somewhere in one of those website archives that takes snapshots of historic websites.

http://www.stud.uni-hamburg.de/users/af ... ontsr.html was the old link but I can't for the life of me remember the archive site I use (not on my computer, otherwise I'd have it)

Maybe the Way Back machine at the Internet Archive?

http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www ... ontsr.html

For some reason, the URL codes won't work with it so copy/paste it into your browser's address bar

MAY 717 - A/S - Shadows of Evil

MAY 717 was also released in German language by Welt der Spiele, however, the title does not come to my mind right now...

Thank you!!

So at least 2 modules were translated in German. Shadows of Evil and Elven Banner.

I am still wondering why there is no copyright to Mayfair or Roleaids

I think the * symbol creates havok on here with website links. If you notice, yours has a space betwen "/users/afte" and "rglo/rpg". I think the same thing happened when I tried it.

Is it possible that a company in Europe went ahead and translated/published the items without permission? If they did two, and got a CAD, that would explain why no more were done.

I do know that Undead was released in Germany.   I can't say which language.  All I know is that Laurel and myself were surprised to receive a check for the release.

It seems that a lot of non TSR items were released in german. I was astonished to find a copy of Arcanum (bard games) 1st ed. in german too.

Is there any website for generic FRP modules in german?

Those Germans do like their games.  Some of the Midkemia Press items were released in German as well.
