Running commentary: 'Relentless' is an excellent piece. I might even say it's exquisitely gothic. ^_^

Still working my way through. Mu's backstory looks rather curious at first glance (I'm pretty sure she's the character from the highest tech background in Ravenloft), though I'll need to peer at the Legacy some more.

Just finished browsing Nathan's Sea of Sorrows piece, which is an absolutely marvelous piece of work, and also the very useful set of sample Kargat cells. Just the thing you need for a plug-and-play Darkon campaign.

Quick comment: It is "Das Kaiserreich", not "Die Kaiserreich" :P

More substantial commentary as I read through it.

Just downloaded it! :)
So far I've just skimmed it. Haven't read any articles yet.

A great thank you to the FoS for their work and a special thanks to all those that contributed to this.

Well, it wouldn't be Ravenloft without some mangled translations. :oops:
I take responsibility for that one. My German comes mostly from board games, so I never really learned grammar.

Don't worry, compared to some official RL terms like Ermordenung or Bussengeist, a single wrong article is a very, very harmless mistake.
It just amused me as I glanced at the TOC ;)

Great work, everyone! Just getting a chance to look at it, but it looks pretty great so far! ^_^

I liked it but i did feel it was leading to abit more than a NPC (a possible lead in to a domain), but it was good well thought out and enjoyable.

I did like the Sea of Sorrow preview (i did notice one typo: Van Rijn instead of Van Riese pg 58) and the lead in story. Along with the Ustalav Gaz it is one one highlights of the issue.

In regards to Ustalav with i bit of modification i fully intend to use a version of it as a result of this artical, i'm toying with placing it to either the south of the Core or to the east of Vechor so i can keep the current layout of the Core as is.

I was i little disapointed with the Lost domains as they just didn't really wow me, not that they appeared to be bad they just didn't really leap out at me as something i wanted to use as is. Bileplate's darklord just seemed off with its CN darklord, i know it is justfied but there is little follow through as to what effect him shifting to CE will have on the domain. The other domains are just not very detailed and Thera seems to have jumped into the one spot that we know another domain (Daglan) occupied prior to the GG.

Is the front page of the website going to be updated for the new release? I just noticed that it hadn't been.

Whuh? Try reloading? it's there. (And kind of hard to miss)

That's... weird. Until just now, the last update I was showing was from June. Strange. =/
