How big is the German Kalamar community?

Post by Big Mac » Fri Jan 08, 2016 3:01 am

I just found out that there is a German version of the Kingdoms of Kalamar Campaign Setting, called Königreiche von Kalamar.

What's the German fanbase like? Is anyone in the English fanbase in touch with German fans?

How much of the rest of the Kingdoms of Kalamar product line has been translated into German? Is there anything in German, that does not exist in English?

Have any German fans been translating any of the English fan material?

I don't know how big the fanbase ever was, but a German sub-forum used to be active on the K&Co website.

Not that I am aware of. If you sell Kalamar stuff on ebay you only generate hand full of bucks from it. So I guess the fan community is nearl null.

I suppose that is a good indicator. :)

Shipping costs must also add to the total-cost-of-ownership, so I suppose that - if German Kingdoms of Kalamar fans have to pay a lot more cash in shipping costs - they would not want to pay a lot of money for the product, on top of that.
