The Dark Eye Core Book Reviewed on The Daily Dope for May 17th, 2018

I share my thoughts on the core book for the Ulisses North America fantasy RPG The Dark Eye. Plus the latest news from Flying Pig Games, Tiny Battle Publishing, Modiphius Entertainment, Star Wars Celebration, and more.

Summary
While The Dark Eye is pretty interesting and all the content out there makes me want to explore the setting further, I'm not sure what sort of gamer the English edition is aimed toward; the system is on the complex side so newcomers to the hobby might be overwhelmed while long time fans of D&D or Pathfinder probably won't be inclined to make a change. I do recommend The Dark Eye but point out, just as with other RPGs, you'll need to pick up far more than the core book to really run the system.
