  1. From my own campaign, I have one comment regarding the GPC. If your players are not *really* into the Arthurian mythos - they may well not even know you're changing the story arc. I threw in some stuff from the Vulgate Merlin, and my players had no idea that it was not part of the standard GPC. So - when you go to change the GPC - remember that it is possible that the only person who will know that the GPC was changed - will be you - the changer. For Arthor! Sir Ukpyr
  2. === === === Not a half-bad idea - and while this may be the direction I go in - I would like to think that I'm not the first person to wonder what the values of games and jewels in the 1920s were.
  3. I am having the devil of a time finding the values of various gems and jewels in the 1920s. How much would a 1 carat ruby have been worth? a 1 carat saphhire? emerald? diamond? lesser gemstones? Any idea where I could find this information? Thanks for the assistancd!
  4. Something for the later periods would be FANTASTIC - Romance and Tournament and Grail Quest era books would ALL be great to see, since while there are many who are in the early stages of the GPC, there are also quite a few of us running around in the later periods of the GPC.
  5. Been busy - haven't had a chance to come back. Thanks to you both both!
  6. I know that one of the books details what the Wergild (non-Saxon version) in Pendragon would be for killing various people, but for the life of me I cannot recall if it was in one of the books or on Greg's old site. If in a book, book and page would be highly appreciated. If on the old site, well knowing where could help me find it (maybe - the Wayback Machine's search engine doesn't much like me - grin). Thanks for any assistance.
  7. Hello everyone, I am unable to find my notes on the Companion of Arthur and Round Table Knights that I had originally found on Greg's Pendragon Page. THEN - I found that Greg's Pendragon Page has vanished, or at least the link I have on my home computer isn't working. I think I have the newer link on my work computer, because that was working on Thursday. HELP please! Thanks.
  8. Morien - you rock! Thanks for the info. Hzark10 - you also rock - and thanks muchly for telling me where to look - and in what page. I think I will handle this in this manner. Limit the number of traits/passions (T/P) which can be "inherited". The "standard" will be *up to half* of the Father's famous T/Ps, with a dice roll determining how many that is. If the player wants to go as high as 2/3 of the famous T/Ps being inherited, then he has to tell me a good story for *why*. I'm a HUGE lover of story, so long as it does not unbalance the gave vs the other characters. Might als
  9. Morien pg 68-69 of which book?? I checked my hardcopy Pendragon 5.0, but pgs 68-69 are all about Traits and Passions. I checked my PDF Pendragon 5.1, same results. I even checked my Knights and Ladies (nope) and Entourage (only has 50 pgs). Thanks for the assist.
  10. PC knight is about to see his 21yr old son knighted. Does the new knight inherit any of Dad's famous traits? any of Dad's skills. I know he gets 10% of Dad's glory. Thanks.
  11. Thanks. This all started when the player said "so how high does my skill need to be for me to be Seniors or Graduate students?". I wondered what others had done in this regard, and the idea of a person just out of college with their 53% in (college taught skill) teaching Seniors seemed crazy, but how high did it need to be. Also love your comment about "there are such things as bad teachers". Made me think about "how low could the score go" (grins). Thanks again.
  12. Which - to be honest - does *nothing* to actually answer my question. My question was (and honestly still is) what level of skill is needed to teach a Junior level (300's) class in Mathematics or Chemistry or Archaeology? A Senior level (400s)? Graduate level (500-600s)? Yes - a 50-74% means you are a professional and are qualified to do a job, and 75-89% makes you an expert. I would presume that at 50% you can teach Freshman level (100s) classes, and probably at the 50-74% score you can teach Sophomore (200s) classes as well. It is in the higher levels that I am seeking advise.
  13. Hello everyone, One of the PCs in my game is a professor of Egyptology (skill 80). He asked what other things could he teach, and I had (and still have) no idea what skill level is needed to teach various classes. I would presume that a minimum of 51% to teach Freshman classes (the 100s), but what is needed to be teaching Sophomore (200s) or Junior (300s) or Seniors (400s) or graduate students (500-600s)? My thanks for any assistance you can provide. SirUkpyr
  14. Gorgeous art!! What exactly will the Codex Mirabilis cover?
