After months of translation work, the French version of Dungeonslayers is finally done, thanks to Mathieu Grégoire-Racicot and Joël «Archelaian» Allard.

You can download the PDF at Dungeonslayers VF where you also find the french character sheet and „La Bibliothèque oubliée“, a three paged Dungeon-2-Go written by Joël «Archelaian» Allard.

Have fun!

There has been a small update to the french version, improving the text layout and correcting an error in the credits.

Meanwhile, our new crack DS-Translation Team has successfully beaten the first linguistic monstrosities of the lower levels and returned with loads of loot to the surface.

So get ready for a new introductory amnesia adventure, forest demons and ancient elven ruins – until then, as always, have fun!

Almost a year has passed since the first messages were heard from France of the intent to translate Dungeonslayers into their native language.
Only a few weeks went by until the first draft reached Germany.
But sadly, the layout wasn’t that easy and turned out to be problematic, mainly due to the French sentences turning out to be much longer than their English or German counterparts.
Some frustrating pages later, the french version migrated, more and more in the direction of the filing cabinet – to be slowly forgotten in the end….

Completely forgotten?
No, not completely, since some resilient French stuck to their guns and took matters back into their own hands, proofread the text anew and even made the layout to finally create a PDF – et voilá:
Le jeu de rôle à l’ancienne is completed – sincere thanks go to James “Arasmo” Manez from the Scriptorium and Olivier Boyaval!

The Polish version announced in the meantime will be layouted right on the spot – so delays made in Germany won’t have a chance this time.

Today, after three weeks of translation work, the French version of Dungeonslayers struck home.

James Manez put his shoulder to the wheel and worked like a pro – the only things left to do are adjusting the layout of the jeu de rôle à l’ancienne, and les personnages tuent des monstres et pillent des catacombes.
For that, a big merci goes out to Clermont-Ferrand!

Another big “Thank you!” goes to Oklahoma, where Michael Garcia started a Dungeonslayers-Wiki. Everybody is invited to post their own variants of the rules or ideas in order to collect them for others to use and to take part in the diverse translation projects.

Have a look, there is already some stuff online.
