Droemer Knaur dropped the project in early 1989; after the bankruptcy of the Schmidt Spiel & Freizeit GmbH in 1997, publishing was continued by Fantasy Productions (which had already done all the editorial work). Since the game's launch, it has gone through five editions, making the rules and background more complex. The basic rules of the fourth edition of The Dark Eye were published in 2001, and it became the first edition to be released in English in October 2003. The fifth edition of the game was released in August 2015, with an English translation released in November 2016.
The young players sent their material to the regional manager and through the central editorial staff to the game editors. Or they sent questions about the game and the setting denoting the desire to expand knowledge of the continent of Aventuria. Sometimes it was Ullrich Kiesow himself who replied, sending suggestions or material, even unpublished, which momentarily appeased the desire for novelty but on the other hand fueled the fire of passion for the game. And from that group of enthusiasts was born the autoral group that carried on Das Schwarze Auge in the following years.
The greatest advantage recognized was that of having created a vast and detailed continent, varied and likely, where each player can have his own favorite place. A world in constant evolution that for decades has been lovingly filled with details by an innumerable group of authors who have taken the first steps inside it as children. It is a living world, which still honors the legacy of its origins, evolving thanks also to the contributions of the players who get in touch with the editorial staff.
@Valerio: lo so benissimo che è un lavoro di molto tempo fa e il mio era solo un esempio della freschezza e vitalità di quelle fotografie e della loro attualità. Avrei potuto portare molti altri esempi ma era quello che sottomano più completo.La ragione per cui sono state edite adesso, è probabilmente merito di un photo editor particolarmente attento e preparato. 2b1af7f3a8
