With everyone else talking about Dungeons & Dragons released release schedule it seems that X-tra Dimensional's release of the Adventures in the East Mark Red Box has been largely ignored. The pdf of the the Red Box is now available over at drivethrurpg and I'm pretty sure the physical box will be available soon. It has a price point of $12.99 and is a take of he Red Box of '81. I should have a few thoughts by the end of the week but for now, check it out and maybe wishlist it!
The Spanish game "Aventuras en La Marca del Este" began from the mind of Pedro Gil as a homebrew campaign for some friends in Spain playing the world's most famous game as devised in Frank Mentzer’s (BECMI) Red Box with 9 starter classes and new rules on mounted combat, aerial combat, seafaring and ship battles. Now, many years later, it is one of the most popular role-playing games in Spain. By enlisting incredible artists that are now rising stars in the RPG industry such as A.J. Manzanedo, Jorge Carrero and Víctor Guerra, the "La Marca" team produced an incredibly captivating "retroclone" role-playing game that is an old school experience wrapped in old world flare. The game is published in Spain by Holocubierta Ediciones.
Supported by Kickstarter, this is the first ever English edition of the game, now called "Adventures in the East Mark". This Basic Rule Set has everything that you need to play a game with the deep traditions of the original fantasy roleplaying game and imbibe it with an authentic European flavor.
