  1. Hi folks, thanks for the replies 😊 Yep becoming a round table knight its definitely an aspiration that the PK's can have, meeting the requirements in the book is a guide, and how they roleplay their characters will have an impact on wether membership is offered. For some they may not qualify whatever the numbers on their character sheets state. For the players that are interested in becoming RT knights, but don't yet meet the standard I will give them then opportunities to be guided or mentored by a more senior knight or one of the unnamed RT knights, so they can work towards it, and and be involved in the big events (where appropriate). I Why set the campaign in Lancashire? Its a fair question. A couple of reasons, mainly its local to the players so when I describe locations they can have a good understanding of the terrain and distances between places. Also there are lots of local traditions and background that can be drawn on as well. Secondly some of the players are familiar with the GPC and some of the published books, so this will help reduce the need to separate player knowledge from character knowledge. On the issue of game balance, in some games its a good thing, some its bad. I tend to take the view that in any game as long as the PC's understand what they are getting into it is up to them to choose to tackle how to tackle the threat, or retreat to come back later when they are better equipped to deal with the situation (appropriate knowledge, better gear, more 'levels', etc). cheers, Nick
  2. Hi Tizun Thane, thanks for the reply. Good point about killing the mystery of the grail and being outside of the the events of the GPC. I think I'll keep Listenesse mysterious by heavily restricting entry to it, perhaps in my campaign part of the magic/mystery is that no-one can ever find entry to the place unless invited (or some other vague method), due to it being hidden from mortal eyes. Regarding the events of the GPC, ther PK's will undoubtedly want to become round table knights, so either they will achieve that status and be involved in the main events of the GPC, or be sponsored by a round table knight and have involvement that way. Either way I can ensure that their lord 'allows' them to be involved in order to bring Glory to him. Hi jeffjerwin, thanks for the insights and reading recommendations, I'll be looking them up as they sound really good for me to gain some understanding. Think I have some googling to do! Thanks again for your comments, hope you are all staying safe and well, cheers, Nick
  3. Hi Morien, Thanks for the quick reply and the points you make, appreciate it ☺️ Looking forward to hearing from anyone with any other info, or ideas about Listeneisse, cheers, Nick
  4. Hi, I am starting to put together notes for a Pendragon campaign I will be running in the future. I am looking to set the campaign in the North West of England (as its near where the players and I live). Am thinking of starting the campaign in 490, and then all the way through the GPC. I have the 4th edition rulebook, and have been looking at Perilous Forest supplement for information about the region. At the moment I am thinking of having the PK's as vassals of Sir Pertelope at Pentwortham castle, or William, Duke of Danger, who is a vassal of the King of Listeneisse. As such there may be frequent travel to and involvement with Listeneisse. Looking in the Perilous Forest supplement (pgs 10, 14-15) there isn't much information about Listeneisse prior to the dolorous stroke in 514 (when it becomes the wasteland). I am also waiting for the kickstarter to deliver so appreciate there may be some info in there I can use. Is there any more published information anywhere about Listeneisse or the area in general other than in the 4th ed rulebook? If the area is a 'blank slate' I can develop the region myself and not worry about issues arising later in the campaign if people or places from the area get mentioned in the GPC or other published scenarios etc. If there is published material I can incorporate that into my campaign, and will have more 'off the shelf' material to use. Thanks in advance for your thoughts, input, and advice, hope you are all staying safe during this trying time, Nick
