Hullo, folks,

I thought I'd get this thread back on topic, and so...

I've posted up photos of the French GM Screen over on my blog. Here's the URL:

I can answer questions for anyone who wants to ask stuff about the GM Screen, if folks like.

JohnK,

Thanks for the pics. I believe I will take the plunge and order it up this weekend. I do have a French/English dictionary and I am not afraid to use it!

Heathd666,

There would be something amusing about dropping a band of Norseman into Briton...

Corone,

Keltia sounds very Bernard Cornwall-esque! That would be a good thing as I really enjoyed his Arthurian novels.

The pics were my pleasure, Erik. :)

And trust me, I may speak and read/write fluent French (part of my job), but I still use a dictionary and or French thesaurus from time to time! :)

This is true, Keltia does use the same system as Yggdrasill.
Although there is only one form of magic (Awen) that runs much like Seidr.
There are new combat feats etc too.

You could bring the two worlds together very easily in terms of system.
(and some of the spells and feats might be useful for more ideas from one to the other)
but I believe the timelines are quite different as one is set a lot earlier than the other.

As I haven't seen any info on the dating of when Keltia is set but with Rome leaving Britain in 410AD (I will assume it is set around that time +/- a few years) and Yggsdrasill being set in the Viking Age 793-1066AD there is a bit of a time gap of about 383 years between the two games. This is, of course, if you want to keep as close to history as the games will allow.

So, just that I understand the plan with Keltia the first supplement (Avalon or AvYr Hen Ogledd (Vieux Nord)?) and the Rule Book are being translated fairly close to each other right now. Which should allow for a fairly quick release schedule after the main book hits the streets?

Wonderful pictures of the screen, JohnK! Thanks for sharing. ;)
I hope the english version may come in the same quality.

Oh, I expect that the English version of the GM Screen will look just as nice and pretty. But in English! :)

As with all the lines we're looking to bring out everything as quickly as possible,
but thats all the scheduling comment I'm willing to make at this stage.

Avalon is the first supplement, continuing the adventure and adding more monsters and magic.
Yr Henn Ogledd (subtitled 'view from the north') is all about the lands of the north and also continues the campaign.
Both books are about the same size as Nine Worlds.

GM Screen ordered from Le Valet in Montreal. Looking forward to seeing it and translating it to the best of my (and by my I mean Google Translations) ability!
