  1. Yeah it's not designed to be free. I didn't even know there was a free version. It's been absolutely worth it for me. YMMV.
  2. World Anvil for the win! They just added Family Trees! Woot!! The timelines are awesome the look is great. World Anvil has made prepping fun again. It also really helps with all those documents and photos and links that you accumulate during a campaign.
  3. Ugh... The Names. I spent countless hours matching all those bloody names and locations so you darn well better use them! And then there was a decision to go back to modern names which is a "hot topic" amongst some of us. But said discussions were rendered moot by executive (ie. Stafford) telling us to shut our yaps 😉 I will say that I originally and vehemently hated the old-style names because I wanted to be able to use the older, hand-drawn maps with Pendragon and figured other GMs would too. However, it was not long before I got totally sold on the older names. Now, I would rarely, if ever, use the modern names since the “old names” are so evocative. Everyone's Mileage Varies on the names and maps exist in both styles. However, I may be of some assistance but need to check with the Knight of the Lark. (Cleared by the Lark!) First, isn't the list in the back of Warlords and Estate? But it may be a limited list... FINDING HUNDRED BOUNDARIES 1-If you want to see Hundreds transposed over modern geography, here is how you can get a "Feel" for it. As mentioned, Stafford tweaked NON-STOP so consider these "guidelines". A) Go to Family Search Website See the tab on the left, click on "Layers" C) Select "County" & "Hundreds" D) See the drop-down that says "Click Map To Select" >Go to "Hundred" E) Now zoom in on the map where you want to go. These are the "guideline" Hundreds although Arthurian counties are different so you need to move them into their proper GPC county. Also, some names have changed. Note that these may change in future supplements but should be very close if not spot-on for Salisbury (Wiltshire). MODERN v. OLD NAMES 2-If you still need assistance, please PM me with a list of confusing locations and I can try to push you in the right direction. (NOTE: Not on here all that often so be patient but I will make a point to stick my head in for the next couple weeks... on Discord channel more often) 3-Also, the Discord channel is an excellent place to compare/contrast locations and names as well as inquiring from true sages about placing things/estates/manors that may be impacted by future GPC events if you haven't memorized the bloody thing. Which you shouldn't try to do.
  4. For those who struggle with the PALADIN timeline, Amazon just released a dramatized documentary series on the life of Charlemagne. The 1st episode was pretty good but I haven't gone further. Regardless, it's about ten episodes or so. Hopefully it will showcase some of the major campaigns and events of the period.
  5. Wow. Ordered it after the above post and got it today! This thing is beautiful. Thank you!!
  6. Reading the "Kings of Britain" is still one of my favorite things to do and it inspired all of my rediscovery of Pendragon RPG so I would definitely be approaching it from that "feel".
  7. The Great Kingdoms Campaign ELEVATOR PITCH The goal of this campaign/setting is to remove ourselves from the script of Britain and play in a setting that is more chaotic and subject to the PK’s actions. While the ‘Great Kingdoms Campaign’ has a timeline similar to the GPC, but it places the actions of the PK’s in the forefront as chaos and power-struggles create an opportunity for PKs to rise to great power. My hope is that it will promote politicking, large scale battles where the results are not known as well as scripted series of adventures and events that put the character’s Kingdom in great danger and in need of grand heroics. Think a healthy mix of Game of Thrones and the GPC. You and your fellow knights are the last descendants of a fallen House in the One Kingdom. Your fathers were given a chance to reclaim their honor and raise up the House once again but now it falls to you. Character generation consists of the creation of a House history that can extend back hundred of years and leads to the House’s fall, the history of the Grandfather shared by all Player-Knights who struggled in the reign of the Restored Throne and the Fathers of the Player-Knights who were given the chance to restore glory to their fallen House’s name. Rules consist of primarily Charlemagne ruleset with changes to character generation (Lineages, Fostering, Squiring), magic/prayer, using the Book of Battle with changes to sieges, domain management and a few more. TL;DR: Knightly campaign in homebrew setting that puts the PKs in the forefront instead of literary icons. GAMEPLAY [Two Options] >Play By Post through either Discord or Rpol.net >Roll20 Online (Available every/other Sunday after 6pm CST for however long agreed on) GAME START: 3-4wks required, need to populate other areas of Kingdom, clean up changes
  8. I've had my eye on it for awhile. I can't tell if it's still active or not since posts are closed. But if it's on-going, I'll sign up. Most definitely. Roll20 has an awesome sheet that someone built and I've run several games on Roll20 (not KAP though). I have been finishing up a Paladin hack that needs a live test so I'll probably use Roll20 then. But it will be a couple weeks. Check in on the KAP Discord channel as just about every game advertised there is online.
  9. I missed this? Son of a... are there any copies left?
  10. That was the purpose of the reNaming project. The end goal was to publish a huge Atlas with updated maps. Every hundred laid out.
  11. First of all, don't put your foot in this... much griping and hair-pulling over this issue. Second, there is a Master Naming List (Excel sheet) but it would be up to Larkins to clear release. Here's the place name list from Book of Uther which should have my corrections from BoW. I would check it but... I spent a gazillion hours doing that once already 😉 ...And no, no one ever even thought about converting French names. That would have resulted in homicide. BoU_Placenames.pdf
  12. Anyone ever track this down? Even incomplete chapters? It looks amazing...
