Beaumains Magazine

Slightly off-topic, but just to give a bit more visibility to "Dragons of Britain", a fanzine of all things Arthurian that had 4 issues, including an article from the now Line Editor (not yet then), David Larkins: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/121452/The-Dragons-of-Britain-1?filters=0_0_44536_0_0

Hi there - Beaumains editor here - what would you like to know? I'm actually working on a project at the moment which is to reprint a bunch of stuff from the magazine, mainly adventures, plus more which was intended for the magazine but never made it before life got in the way of me having time to edit it.

It will hopefully appear later this year. It would have been earlier, but that pesky real life got in the way again with (among other things) a house move and the hassle of dealing with bureaucracy in two different countries at the same time.

Incidentally, if anyone out there is in touch with Tim Harris, Brit KAP fan, I'd be grateful if someone could help me get in touch with him.

Beaumains is indeed a very nice zine. I have five of the six issues, and they contain a wealth of KAP material. As they were written so long ago, a lot of that information was the personal take of that writer on the Arthurian Legend. Because there was no GPC then, and Boy King was only published during the run of the magazine, a lot of the info in it is now either invalidated, or superseded by the GPC and other later official KAP publications. And at least one of the adventures in it was extended and published later in Tales of Chivalry & Romance, namely the adventure of the Mysterious Manor.

However, as I am still missing Issue 1, some kind of publishing them all, or making them available in PDF, would be greatly appreciated

I do not know who I am, but I do know where i'm going!

I always was very curious about Beaumains. I would love to read more about it. Is your project next to fruition? Could you post the pdf somewhere (drivethru...) ? So many questions...  A bottle in the sea...

I would love to pick up the previous issues, and not just to fill in the blanks in my list of Pendragon articles. What's on there for Beaumains was gleaned from RPGGeek's entries.
