The Dark Eye is a Pen-and-Paper RPG originally created in Germany under the name "Das Schwarze Auge" (DSA).

The Dark Eye is a German Pen and Paper RPG, primarily set on the continent of "Aventurien". It is currently published by Ulisses Spiele in the revised fourth edition (4.1), with 5th edition undergoing a beta phase.

The game uses d20s with a roll-under mechanic, so that 1 is typically the best result. Notably, skill and spell checks involve three such rolls, skill ranks are used to compensate failure.
