FedCon 29 | Workshop| Einladung zum Wüstenplaneten | by Robert Corvus

In over 20 novels and several cinematic adaptations, we have traveled to the desert planet Dune. Now there is finally the opportunity to leave your own footprint in the sands of Arrakis: Ulisses publishes the German translation of the brand-new role-playing game Dune – Abenteuer im Imperium.

Players slip into the roles of members of a noble house they create themselves. They have been trained by the mysterious Bene Gesserit, have connections to the Space Guild, use their superior mental powers as human computers or prove themselves in intrigue and shield combat with slow blades. As agents and negotiators, they face the merciless struggle of the houses on Arrakis, under the brutal rule of the Harkonnen, threatened by the endless desert with its savage Fremen and, of course, the gigantic Sandworms.

Robert Corvus has translated the basic rulebook and some adventures. In the Invitation to the Dune workshop, he provides insight into the game principles and thus into one of the most fascinating universes of science fiction.

In the end, an eternal truth is written in the sands of Arrakis: The spice must flow!
