The Translator of the East Mark 

I don’t think I ever formally told you guys; I’m translating Aventuras en la Marca del Este (Adventures in the East Mark ) for Extra-Dimensional Publishing. Adventuras is a really awesome Spanish fantasy role playing game, that builds upon Moldvay’s red box. 

I’ll talk more about it in the near future. 

We dubbed this setting the “Known World,” to imply there was more out there yet to be discovered, because we didn’t want to paint ourselves into a corner. It was our intention to use the Known World in ongoing open-ended campaigns run by multiple DMs, in which player characters could go back and forth from one DM’s game to another. Moldvay and I were already running our own campaigns this way, and we hoped to bring other DMs on board as well, so we’d all be playing in the same giant sandbox.
