  1. As @albinoboo said, it's my Kickstarter reward from a some time ago: August 2017, but with estimated delivery by april 2018, so it's just a year late. Nothing strange, compared to mean production delays of this industry, and it was worth every day of waiting! I confirm that the PDFs (of both books) are avilable both on Drivethrurpg and on Chaosium's website: https://www.chaosium.com/paladin/ Hopefully, Chaosium will start selling the physical books once the kickstarter rewards have been fulfilled, so everyone can feast their eyes on these beautiful products!
  2. They exist! I've just received my backer copies of the Paladin Handbook & the Adventure Book. Really gorgeous, two stunning hardbacks! The gilded page edges and fabric bookmarks are two really neat details of superior production value. Very happy of this purchase (or should I say "funding"?). Thanks Nocturnal and thanks Chaosium!
  3. Hi Scotty, if Chaosium wants to acquire a copy of the first edition book, it seems to be available from AbeBooks: https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30262819994&searchurl=sortby%3D17%26tn%3DKing%2BArthur%2Bcompanion&cm_sp=snippet-_-srp1-_-title1 at the VERY cheap price of 3.78 $, good conditions, free shipping within the USA. It's also available here: https://www.threegeeseinflight.com/product/21741/The-King-Arthur-Companion--First-Edition-Hardcover-Phyllis-Ann-Karr but not so cheap, 45 $, very good+ conditions. Hope this helps!
  4. Hi there! Basically, Scotty has just posted the two files that I had posted on the old Nocturnal forums (Book of the Warlord and Book of Uther name conversion lists). Combined with the other two lists (which include the Book of Estate and another list, don't know form which book), they should cover most names needed. It should be trivial to combine them in a sigle list/file, I can do it if there is interest. I fear that producing the reverse list, from modern to descriptive names (is it needed?), will be more difficult and error-prone, but I can try this too. At home, I should still have a

  6. Here it is. Original French scenarios included in official books: Editeur Oriflam - Le roi oublié (with the GM screen) Editeur Icare - Chroniques de Pendragon 1 (one scenario per year, 486-492): Le linceul de Noctua (8 pages) qui voit les chevaliers en quête d'une relique dérobée dans un couvent saccagé, L’honneur sauf (7 pages) où ils doivent mener bataille contre des saxons avant d'être confronté au véritable problème, L’Enfant des Marais (8 pages), épisode dans lequel les héros se dressent face à des créatures habitant des marais, Triste Muse (9 page
  7. The French publishers of Pendragon have produced a notable amount of original, official material for the game. If you can read French, I can put a list here for your perusal. Also, the French magazines Casus Belli, Tatou, Backstab and Descartes Magazine included several original Pendragon scenarios over the years.
  8. Well, if you like income ranges as a function of pay (the latter rounded off to the nearest £0.5), you probably also want to round off a bit the income range figures too. For example: (of course, instead of 451-650 and 651-850, you could write 450-649 and 650-849, and so on).
  9. My suggestion? Round the revenue to the nearest hundreds of libra (here, to £1600), then follow this table: It was obtained from the best Excel fit of the data provided, with this function: pay = 1.736 * ln(revenue) - 6.9625 In this instance the officer pay would be £5.8, or £5 16s. I don't know how this relates to any court costs, however.
  10. I just discovered that Chaosium is debuting a whole host of new convention scenarios this year at GenCon, and... ...DRUM ROLLS PLEASE... ... there will be tables to play both Pendragon and Prince Valiant!!! Here's the link to the news, directly from Chaosium's blog: https://www.chaosium.com/bloggen-con-preview-2-new-convention-scenarios-debuting-at-gen-con?mc_cid=1c38f85966&mc_eid=18d84ef2aa Unfortunatley I live in Italy, so I'll not attend GenCon, but all fellow KAP forum members can rejoice in knowing that KAP and PV are again under the spotlight! Is anyone in th
  11. +1! Even just the book covers of all editions and supplements would make for a beautiful book! Let's keep on dreaming...
  12. I know I'm probably over-enthusiastic, but I really like the cover art of ALL KAP editions... Maybe you could sell good-quality prints of all of them???
  13. Where does the "Pugnacious" bonus come from? I think I've never heard of it...
  14. In this page, https://thewildpeak.wordpress.com/tag/riothamus/ the author hypothesizes that Riothamus retires to Burgundy after his defeat in Europe. Maybe it, or a part of it, could be his kingdom?
  15. I second this request! It seems that some fellow forumites (@Morien in particular) have interesting files to share...
  16. Well, we also have "Paladin: Warriors of Charlemagne", or PWC...
  17. I think these suggestions and comments by Morien are interesting and easily applicable (as usual: thanks Morien!). In particular, I tend to play with very few PKs (1 to 3), and of course a 1-PK party cannot compete internally, while competition within a 3-PK party is quite limited in scope... Moreover, I'm a big fan of collaborative, non-competitive play (it was my main reason to start playing RPGs, back in 1984...). Although not strictly needed, maybe some form of these suggestions could be included as alternate rules in future iterations of the book (hint, hint...)?
  18. Sincerely, I don't know. However, I'll check at home with my copies of both editions and will inform you of any significant differences I'll find.
  19. "Prince (King?) Achilles Myrmidon", abbreviated "Myrmidon" "Swift-footed Achilles Thetides", abbreviated "Thetides" "Swift-footed Achilles Pelides", abbreviated "Pelides"
  20. EDIT: Problem solved, it turns out I had an old PDF (I bought it the first day it was available!), and the new PDF I downloaded today has higher resolution maps. Sorry! Hi! I have the Reign of Terror PDF, and I love every bit of it. EXCEPT... The resolution of maps (both in the main file and in the players' handouts) is awfully low, to the point that it is difficult to read the location numbers and names. Is it possible to download/receive higher-resolution versions of these images? Roberto
