  1. The last I heard, the next three Pendragon projects in the works including the GM Screen and Resource Pack, Codex Mirabilis and Knights and Ladies Adventurous. Can you provide an updated status on all of these projects?
  2. That's very cool! Please pass on my kudos for his work.
  3. Has anyone read the Dracula vs King Arthur comic? I just found it this weekend and found it quite interesting. It is essentially an alternate history, encompassing the Quail quest, death of Arthur, betrayal by Lancelot, and more. The ideas certainly could be used for a more unusual KAP campaign, or a one-shot.
  4. Does anyone own any issues of "Beaumains: The Arthurian Magazine for Gamers?" There were 6 issues of this British magazine, during the 1990s, and much of it was about Pendragon. It seems to be quite rare, but the table of contents I've seen are intriguing.
  5. Does anyone know what new book(s) might be out next for KAP?
  6. Has anyone adapted/used any of the adventures for Paladin in KAP?
  7. On p.8 of The Book of Feasts, it states: "There are five activities to choose from: Draw Cards (unless disallowed — see below), Gossip, Indulge, Flirt, or Game." Later on that same page, it states: "Thus, characters seated Above the Salt cannot draw Feast Cards, but must choose from among Gossip, Indulge, and Flirt, whose results are more staid and predictable." Does that mean if you are seated Above the Salt, you also cannot choose the Game activity? Or was the omission of Game an error? The same page also states, "If the Feast Deck runs out of cards...then p
  8. Atgxtg, As I mentioned above, in the GPC (p.284), there is a battle between Lancelot and Tristam, where both are said to have Lance and Sword skills of 40 each, which differs from some of the other Lancelot stats in other books. Their battle ends in a tie as neither can hit the other.
  9. Thanks very much! Plenty looks to be helpful.
  10. In the rare instance where two battling knights each have Sword skill: 40, how do you handle it? In the GPC (p.284), during a battle between Lancelot and Tristam, it states, "This is truly the Battle of Heroes. The two knights quickly shiver their lances, and then engage in a furious sword fight that smashes armor and nicks blades, yet neither can win because both are perfect. (Both have Lance and Sword skills of 40 each.) The battle continues and both eventually tire, but keep fighting. Finally, as light is failing, the two combatants agree to a truce." Do you follow this example,
  11. I certainly took liberties with the source materials, and in my prior campaign, the idea worked out well, with Ganieda being a long-term villain. We completed the entire GPC, with the Uther expansion, 80+ campaign years. I'm starting to look now to running a new campaign, so will work on creating a new villain for the Infamous Feast. For more information on the Ganieda legends, check out this journal article: https://www.jstor.org/stable/2917618?seq=1#metadata_info_tab_contents
  12. Definitely good for people to know! There are a number of cool articles and adventures in those magazines.
  13. Thanks Morien, I have read it before. I have the four copies of that magazine.
  14. It began with a question: The Infamous Feast: Who's The Villain? Though a number of possibilities are given in the Uther Expansion to the GPC, I wanted something different. After doing some Arthurian research, I was fascinated by the fragmentary information about Ganieda, Merlin's twin sister. So, using some of the info I found, and creating some of my own background, I created Ganieda to be a grand villain for my Pendragon campaign, responsible for the poisoning at the Infamous Feast, as well as the earlier poisoning of Ambrosius. Here is an origin tale for Ganieda: Born to a B
  15. And one more resource: The Chaosium adventure, Red Eye of Azathoth, has five scenarios, including a Western one called "And Madness Shall Rise To Devour The West." The adventure contains a small town and one of the regenerated characters is Doc Holliday.
