Does anyone have any views on the relative merits of the original GDW version vs. the current Pegasus version? I'm a gamer not a collector -- but I'm an English speaker so if playability is signficantly affected by the German version, I might consider laying out the dough on ebay for the original. Any other differences between the two worth noting?

The differences are mostly in favor of the Pegasus version--nicer counters, nicer and bigger map hexes. One downside (to my eye anyway) is that I liked the original artwork on the counters better, but that is mostly a matter of aesthetics I suppose. For a while, the rules that we could get online where not the greatest, and the german wording on some of the counters made things a little confusing. At this point, however, I'd say that the player aids that are availiable here take care of most, if not all, of those issues. I'd say go for the German.

I play the German version and love it. The biggest language roadblock is if there's an event or character counter whose name is in German, and you don't know what it means, despite the pictures on the counters. With the player aids here on the 'Geek, though, that shouldn't matter at all. It's so cheap at Adam-Spielt (cost me $40, including shipping to Massachusetts), there's really no excuse not to get it.
You might learn a bit of German, too.
Have fun!
