Tempora Heroica - Die Zeit der Helden (Tempora Heroica - The Time of Heroes) is an inofficial fan-made supplement for Das Schwarze Auge. It contains a card-based adventure generator, blunder cards and reward cards.
The adventure generator let's the GM draw one A5-sized adventure card. The card presents a short adventure hook and tells the GM how many monster cards he should draw for the adventure's encounters, and how many camp cards that provide regeneration for the characters. Monster cards come in dangerous and less dangerous flavors, and each card provides stats for low- and high-level groups. When an adventure goal has been reached, one or more rewards are played out. The reward cards each contain a description text and a small random table. Rewards may be treasures or special cards that give a bonus in certain situations.
The fumble cards are played whenever a player rolls critical miss during combat. They describe the results of the failed attack or defense and thus provide more flavor in combat situations.
