REQ scan of "The Adventurer's Handbook" (Hexuma; German)
 
Well, it's me once more.
Unexpectedly though, because no sooner had we successfully closed the Kathedrale case, I found yet another important document missing from an adventure game:

Again it's a Software 2000/Weltenschmiede adventure game, Hexuma - Das Auge des Kal and there is a second manual which is badly needed to solve the game, the brownish Adventurer's Handbook (original title Handbuch des Abenteurers)

Can anyone repeat the Kathedrale miracle again and provide this document for the archives?
May every humble being's eternal gratitude be reserved for thee, o generous contributor; for thou deservest it. :agree

I've got it and I'll be happy to scan & share if anyone can provide me with an original review of the game in return to publish on my site. The reason being that if I sit down in front of the scanner, I would like to offer the file on my website, too - and for that, a review is necessary.

Sorry, guys, this is not what I meant. While contemporary reviews are interesting, they are not the original, primary source I'm looking for.

Retro-Nerd 18 May 2011 19:00

This is the "original" Amiga Joker review (October 1992 issue), nothing contemporary. :confused

Mr Creosote 18 May 2011 19:16

Contemporary of the game - that's the point. I'm asking if anyone can provide a new review which has not been published before.

Well, I think that could make a nice quid pro quo contribution from me, couldn't it. :cool

To compensate your time needed to scan the stuff, so to say.

But after all, the actual sense of this escapes me, as I strongly assume that the reviewer is supposed to do the review in English. But I wonder why should he do an English-language review of a game that definitely was only available in German?
That's just where said "sense" comes into play.

So where is the point?

Mr Creosote 23 June 2011 09:09

If you look at mt website, it's bilingual - German and English. I'm ok with people submitting stuff in one language, I will then take care of a translation. So if you think only German makes sense in this case, fine (as long as yo don't object to a translation)!

The reason I believe it also makes sense to review non-English games in English is comes from my own experience as a reader/fan/visitor of similar sites: I like reading about interesting games, even if I could not really play them myself. It is sometimes just nice to learn what others have been up to, isn't it? It is all part of history, no matter in which language.

You can find the manual scan here. It automatically becomes publicly available as soon as someone completes the game entry by providing a review.

Why you don't upload it to the zone for all members of EAB? ...

Why don't you fill in one of the requests posted here? It's the everlasting question why someone does not do X or Y or whatever else, isn't it? Concerning most people, it will remain a mystery forever, but for me personally, I prefer to give something to the general public instead of just the members of one forum and provide that public with the full picture of a game, not just a partial glance.
