A quick announcement:
As of today, I am also running my own mailing-list for CAH discussions for German-speaking fans.

This is not a list with translations of posts made to the existing English-language mailing lists, of course. This is a separate forum I organized for future players, and potential players in my country.
Any German fans reading this, please come over and have a look!

The website of the mailing list is:

Only my complete lack of ability to speak German prevents me from joining this list.

I would be extremely curious, howveer, to see if anyone ever does a Japanese-langaugae list. That would be beyond ironic.

Hey, Michael.

Not only did I find a great German guy who joined my list after receiving a hint from Eddy (which brings my total membership up to *2*, for the moment!), but also this guy, who is currently working in Cambridge, England, is a translator by profession and would be greatly interested in contributing to a German-language edition of CAH, _and_ he is originally from my geographical area, went to the same game stores, the same clubs, knows the conventioneers and likes some of the same music as me. That is what I call luck.

Oh, and he and I are also both long-time fans of the show, Captain Future from 1978 (a legendary cartoon based on Edmond Hamilton's novels). "Cap F." is not widely known in the US, but it aired successfully in France as "Capitaine Flam" and several times in Germany, where it introduced my generation to animé series -- a bit like Star Blazers and Battle of the Planets did the same for American kids in the late 1970s.

Life is great!

No problem.
I'll confidentially send you his e-mail address.

Consider it done.

Ozzy is very cool, and I would love to see a German-language version of CAH someday.  :-)

Just wanted to pass this on early:

It looks very much as if Ozzy, myself, and a few other friends are going to meet at the NURD Convention in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday, July 12th. It's very close to where I live.

Check this website for details:

I will act as the Game Master by default, and I am going to write a new adventure scenario for the con-goers, possibly for Warriors of the Cosmos, but it may well be for another cartoon series (Outlaws? Team Bulwark? Dekkledd?).

Hello guys.

This is a related news bite, so I put it here:  
I found out today that the guys from ENVOYER magazine in Germany have made my long article (not THAT long, actually) about Cartoon Action Hour available on the internet. So, anyone who would still like to read my complete text from last summer can read it there, and does not have to track down an old issue of the magazine.

The article is at:
http://www.envoyer.de/ausgaben/2002/09/cah.html

Enjoy.
