A Spanish-language Retro-Clone? Si!

My friends over at “Adventuras en La Marca Del Este” have written to inform me that they are hard at work producing a Spanish retro-clone entitled—what else—Adventuras en La Marca Del Este. It will be a Basic D&D retro-clone similar to Labyrinth Lord but “with a few changes” according to Pedro Gil of “Adventuras en La Marca Del Este”. It will be a boxed set release that includes a 150 pp. rule book, a set of dice, and a three-panel referee screen. An English-language translation is being considered.

Unfortunately, my Spanish is atrocious and Goggle seems to be having difficulty rendering the site into something I'm literate in so I have little else in the way of information. Some more details can be found here. Feel free to leave a comment with more information if you have more than a passing acquaintance with Spanish.

Pedro provided me with some sample illustrations from the work including these LoTR inspired pieces, a cover piece inspired by Elmore’s take on the Red Box, and a female cleric bound for holy smiting.

As Steinkel has stated in their blog, the game will feature all the classic classes (Cleric, Dwarf, Elf, Fighter, Halfling, Magic-user and Thief) plus two new: Paladin and Ranger.

It'll include rules from the four original boxes (basic, expert, companion and master), with some other additions and changes yet to be specified.

The artwork is great! That's the kind of realism we don't typically see in modern fantasy RPG art, and I love it.
