  1. Switzerland is digitizing a lot of their manuscripts (over 2000 so far) and there is some great art in there if you are looking for inspiration. http://e-codices.ch/en If there is not a kingdom of the bears among the fae, I will be very disappointed.
  2. Are there any plans for a community content site for Pendragon once the new edition is out, similar to the Jonstown Compendium (RuneQuest) or the Miskatonic Repository (Call of Cthulhu)? Or should such concepts be sent in as "Other RPG" submissions directly to Chaosium? I've got a new idea for a Pendragon adventure that I'm working on. thanks! jared
  3. In just one week, Bayt al Azif 3 got Silver Best Seller level sales! Plus we got 5 star reviews from two people: "This is the first issue I've picked up, but I will definitely go back and get the first two once I finish this. It's a very strong magazine!" "...a great Mythos Magazine for both new and veteran players/Keepers." Thanks Evan and Bridgett for your reviews! If you love Bayt al Azif, posting a rating and/or review really means a lot to all of the creators, and helps raise our profile online. We really appreciate it! jared Editor, Bayt al Azif A magazine for Cthulhu Mythos roleplaying games baytalazif.com
  4. Ah, I think I was assuming Moon Design had taken over Chaosium rather than the two companies sharing officers. Updated it, thanks for the correction!

  7. What makes a good Cthulhu Mythos scenario? All good scenarios from any roleplaying game have certain aspects in common, but Cthulhu Mythos scenarios definitely have certain elements that set them apart from other games. When comparing the many "classics" and "favorites" Cthulhu scenarios from over the years, most of them are very distinct from each other. These variable elements are often points on an axis (like the level of Cthulhu mythos in an adventure can range from a werewolf to Cthulhu himself, but neither extreme of the axis precludes a good Cthulhu scenario). In addition, scenarios have the ultimate swing factor of the ability and style of the Keeper. A great Keeper can make gold from the worst scenario, while a great scenario can be too much for a beginning Keeper to pull off in the way they hoped. The complaint most often leveled against scenarios is that a scenario "needs work", as in the Keeper will have to add or modify many elements to make it workable... but is this for the specifics of their group, or their own Keeper style, or just because the scenario is poorly written or organized? Aside from these options that can vary in degree, there are certain major elements that ARE required in all Cthulhu Mythos scenarios. Major Elements: Mystery Clues Handouts Horror Suspense Setting Roleplay Plausibility (to frame horror) Clarity Strong structure Axis Choices: Possibility of success Level of Cthulhu Mythos reference Maturity Are there other Major Elements that you would list as necessary for a good Cthulhu Mythos adventure? In your favorite scenarios, what elements made them your favorite? (But try to avoid spoilers in your examples, please!) And what things that "needed work" in a scenario do you wish all scenarios included?
  8. Correct, I mainly put it if there is a female Knight as the mother, but it makes sense to make it the most Glorious Parent. And if you are using female Knights, I have no problem with women inheriting as well. That's probably how I'm going to play it. Use whatever rules you want!
  9. Right, I changed Son Number to Child Number. Most of the changes I made were on the second page, so it's gender neutral across all the generations. Wife to Spouse Glory to Son to Glory to Children Lineage Men to Lineage Members Father's Name to Parent's Name
  10. Ok I changed Lineage Men to Lineage Members. Totally missed the regionless sheet at first, so this is the new Regionless version. King Arthur Pendragon regionless character sheet.pdf
  11. I finally got KAP and the Great Pendragon Campaign, and in GDP it said you can have a knight of any sex, but the character sheet in KAP is phrased for only a male knight (though amusingly, the Woman sheet refers to "Spouse" instead of "Husband", where the Knight sheet uses "Wife"). So I tweaked the format and made a gender neutral version. The only things I left on (since I haven't played it yet!) is the reference to Other Lineage Men (any suggestions for a neutral phrase for that?) under Army, and I wasn't sure if the Chivalry Bonus marks for Personality Traits should be left on there, since they vary so much from the Gentlewoman Bonus marks, but this should be a for a "Knight". Also, several skills didn't match between the Knight and Woman character sheets, so I didn't know if those should be added as well. Finally, I could add Household Treasures onto the Knight sheet if that would help. Character sheet attached: King Arthur Pendragon gender neutral character sheet.pdf
  12. We will go that extra step to make sure you buy the next issue!
