Has anyone done a translation of the Rathurbosk Bridge article in Abenteuer #1?

It was a German RPG fanzine/magazine that had a print run. The PDF of the issue is available as a pay what you want on DtRPG.

I tried doing a google translate of the text but it wasn't giving a readable translation

I hope this helps. I make absolutely no guarantees that it's in any way accurate, though...

Thanks for posting that. Short, but interesting.

"Weapons must be surrendered"…

I read this quite often in game supplements regarding entry into cities and started thinking*... How does that actually work? Where are the weapons stored (there could be quite a few)? Is there a charge?
* Yes, it hurts.

Especially in this case, where the city is a bridge; how do merchant guards (either heading into Krarth, or travelling south into Kurland) bring their weapons across? Are they carried across for them? Who does this – and when? Do merchants have to hire guards to get to the Rathurbosk and then hire a new set once they've crossed the bridge? How would anyone else travelling to or from Krarth on legitimate business get their weapons across (travelling without weapons in that area must surely be unheard of)?

A sword to a knight is more than just a weapon, it is his 'badge of office'. I don’t see many knights casually handing over their swords to a lowly gate guard (either at the Rathurbosk or elsewhere)...
