Some news from Ulisses Spiele regarding the German edition: http://www.ulisses-spiele.de/neuigkeite ... e-im-juli/

Running it through Google Translate, here's what I understand:

- German version of the Companion will arrive in late 2018
- German version of Questors will arrive in early 2019
- The Legends of Barsaive adventures will also be translated
- The German-produced Serpent River trilogy of adventures is being proofread, artwork is being created by Maik Schmidt, should be released early 2019
- The German-produced Kaer Sourcebook will be released in Q2 2019.
- A trilogy of novels is in the works, written by Caroline Möbis. The Google translation is not very clear, but it seems she has already delivered the first two novels and is currently working on the third.

Some news from Ulisses Spiele regarding the German line...

The new trilogy of novels by Carolina Möbis is scheduled for release in 2019, published by Feder & Schwert. If I read the announcement correctly, they will also re-release the existing Earthdawn novels in German as eBooks.

The German edition of the ED4 Companion is also scheduled for a Jan., 31st 2019 release. The release was delayed to include the errata.

Questors will follow soon thereafter (first quarter of 2019). Elven Nations will also be translated.

The Serpent River adventures are proofread and will be released mid-2019. The Kaer sourcebook is planned for a release in Autumn 2019.

My question is from this article is that some of the original novels are being released in German as well. We we ever see them here. Especially the one Earthdawn book that was part of the Shadowrun trilogy that never made it to print in the US but made it to print in Germany?

I believe they are announcing re-releases as eBooks in this article, but I don't know if it will include Caroline Spector's Little Treasures (I think that's the one you're thinking of). You'll have to ask Ulisses Spiele ^^'

Ulisses Spiele is offering a free audio book of an Earthdawn short story... in German, of course. Still, this is pretty cool.
