Then… they thought they had to bring epic scale destruction to Aventuria. To bring drama of Apocalypses. sigh…. I wish Aventuria had remained that fairy tale place of my youth. But then, I feel the same about Batman comics.

All this gloom and doom people love so much these days… I dislike it.
Didn't you read my entries about the last TDE games here yet ? In them, I explained everything. Just take a look at the Drakensang sub-forums.

Meanwhile Borbarad's invasion was an great event, I never really liked - although planned by the team, then, that Tobria should become an area filled with Horror. An horror-themepark, so to say.

Only in the recent times - more than 10 years after the original event ! - there has been attempts to reduce that - through the "Splitterdämmerung" meta-campaign.

Since then, there have roughly been 2 kinds of TDE players :

- Those who like the "old Aventuria" in the way that you descrivbed it, complete with an strong fairy-tale touch
- those who came to TDE AFTER Borbarad's invasion, where everything was "dark & gritty" now. Of course, they don't want "the old Aventuria" to come back again, because "Greyturia" is the way they know TDE.

"Blackguards" ( no German title for an TDE game, which is an absolute novelty ! ) is basically an TB game about bunch of criominals on the run, who "accidentally save the world", according to the preview.
