On this episode of Darkness on the Horizon, Dave and Slade pass a very enjoyable early evening with Lester Smith, the lead translator for the new English version of the dark medieval fantasy RPG Aquelarre, which recently finished funding on Kickstarter.

Chaos! Panic! Confusion! My work is done here...
Sir Eliot the Arbitrary lives up to his name and what hordes of Saxons or the horrible policies of High King Uther could not achieve, Sir Eliot achieves with just one word!

In preparation for running the GPC next year, I've put together a little intro & reference sheet for the players. Page 1 is wholesale lifted from +David Larkins (with permission, thanks Dave!) and page 2 is a summary of the main mechanics of the game.

Suggestions, corrections, additions? Did I miss anything important? I'm new to this, so all feedback is more than welcome!

I need a few more voices (especially female) for some future NPCs in my Pendragon game. All you have to do is pass along an email for the dialogue and then it over to me in an audio file. If intrigued comment here or email me. Thanks.

Inspired by the Feast Cards Sir Pramalot (who is that on here?) posted in the Nocturne forums, I decided to have a go at doing a nice design for them. Here are the first few layout ideas - the last card on the right would be the back of all cards. Feedback welcome. :-)

Yeah, although I'd guess it's unlikely Merlin would be there if a Pendragon wasn't. I'd say your own lord gives x 2, any king gives x 3.

This just out. I'll be curious to hear the reviews about it. #KAP  
Two new supplements for King Arthur Pendragon — Book of Uther and The Great Pendragon Campaign: King Uther Expansion — mark the inauguration of our new website and connected webstore. Book of Uther is a 160-page supplement that provides more details on the workings of the Royal Court during the tumultuous life and times of King Uther Pendragon.

Maybe I missed this discussion but did +David Larkins not just COMPLETE the Great Pendragon Campaign on 10/26/15? Kudos to you! I'm afraid I have another 55 years of listening to catch up so please all, no spoilers. I assume Arthur built a glorious kingdom, and established a dynasty of chivalrous knights that lasted for a thousand years. 😉

So, I've been pondering the SIZE/STRENGTH Conundrum. I know many people don't have a problem with it, but I'm just tired of the giant beefy Knights with low DEX/APP. So I've put together the following house rule:
Derived stats are now as follows:
Knockdown = [(SIZ+DEX)/3]+7
Damage = (STR+SIZ)/6
Healing Rate = (APP+CON)/10
Move Rate = (STR+DEX)/10
Major Wound = CON
Hit Points = SIZ+CON

This centralizes Knockdown in the 16-17 range for the most part and encourages more varied PCs. Healing Rate gains a replaces STR with APP to both reduce the "dump stat" and to model the games approach to APP having to do with how well you live.

Anyone have any feelings on these changes?

I share the concern about making DEX and APP more useful to knights.

APP is pretty easy to fix by just making it come up all the time as GM. Let it modify social skills similar to how Glory can but with below average giving a penalty and above average a bonus when appropriate. 

Orate rarely cares but Courtesy and Singing certainly are easier for a handsome knight. It doesn't make them actually better but people forgive their errors more easily. 

DEX needs more help so having it figure into other things makes sense. If you have fights on foot then it comes up often especailyl if you enforce needing a DEX roll to move further than your MOV in a round if you want to still attack.

The Achievements project is chugging along. The current list is as follows:

A Wonder To Behold: during a battle, roll three consecutive critical hits while in the Killing Zone.

As Two Lions: score three consecutive tied critical hits in combat with another knight.

Borrowed Glory: be mistaken for a knight of at least twice your glory, for whatever reason.

Castle Batesmotel: as lord of a castle, institute a strange custom that all guests must satisfy.

Choking It Down: accept the surrender of an individual for whom you have a Hate passion of 16 or greater.

Devil Take The Hindmost!: in the Boy King phase, take part in every one of Arthur’s battles.

Dunroamin: obtain (or build) a castle and give it an evocative name.

First Sight: in the Romance phase, generate an Amor passion for someone whose name you don’t know.

For Jesu’s Sake: defeat a major (typically named) opponent while inspired by Love (God).

Horseflesh: leave a battle riding the horse of an enemy knight.

Indestructible Bastard: survive a hit doing 12d6 damage or more.

It Wasn't Me: perform a heroic, chivalrous deed, unrecognised, and claim no credit. Glory for the achievement awarded once the truth comes out (as it always does).

Kinslayer: during the Twilight phase, slay someone whom your Love (Family) would ordinarily inspire you to protect.

Nom de Guerre: adopt a colourful nickname in French.

Payback Time: in the Anarchy phase, seize the lands of a named rival.

Rosalinde de Riveter: as a Lady, accomplish a quest that was thought to require a knight.

Rule Britannia!: in the Conquest phase, win a title and estate outside of Britain.

Smiting For Crockery: during the Grail Quest period, slay a fiendish knight.

Spanning Generations: accomplish a quest that your father failed. This is upgraded to Family Tradition (and the bonus glory is doubled) if both your father and grandfather failed the same quest.

Submit To The Crown: vanquish a knight and extract an oath that he will present himself to the King and swear fealty.

The Infected: go mad from fumbling a Hatred passion.

Too Much Time On Your Hands: bear, and faithfully draw, a coat of arms with sixteen quaterings or more.

Who Was That Masked Man?: during the Tournament phase, win a tournament you entered incognito.

Each one is worth 100 glory, and can be awarded only once - the first person who qualifies, gets it.

As before, any extra ideas you guys have are welcome!

I'm brainstorming some achievements (as seen in damn near every video game released in the last eight years, and recently in Double Tap for Night's Black Agents). I've not used them before in tabletop gaming, but they sound like a fun way to encourage genre-appropriate actions among the PCs. What I've come up with so far is:

Who Was That Masked Man?: win a tournament you entered incognito.

Nom de Guerre: adopt a colourful nickname in French.

As Two Lions: score three consecutive tied critical hits in combat with another knight.

The Infected: go mad from fumbling a Hatred passion.

Payback Time: in the Anarchy phase, seize the lands of a pre-established rival.

Clearly this list needs expansion. Any genius ideas from the community?

I encourage KAP fans to support the English translation of Würm, a roleplaying game set in the Ice Age. Würm is published in France by Editions Icare, the same company that published and translated the current French edition of KAP. Only a few days remain for the project and a stretch goal for more content is within reach.

Some progress on the Deck of Feasting! The biggest challenge is finding enough appropriate artwork (anyone got a good source for this?) but it's coming along.

Since the last version: the "Must" cards have a black border now, I got rid of the numbers (irrelevant if you're not rolling), and I found a nice image for the card backs, which are also darker now to make it clear at a glance which is the front & the back.

Soon I'll be trying out a test printing and I'll post some photos of how they turn out. :-)

Another Pendragon game. With the death of Uther last year, things are falling apart in Logres. Tribuit seems to have disappeared and the Saxons vassals of Uther are restless and striking out on their own.

Hi all. What are your recommendations regarding which of the crop of "Book of the..." I should get, and in what order will they be useful in running GPC?
Many thanks in advance!

Simon, this partly depends on the kind of game you run, e.g. Battle and Armies are of little use if you don't want to make an event out of the big battles.

Book of the Estate especially suits my games, and Warlord and Uther both suit games still in early Periods.

It looks like an awesome game, but now is not the time of year I can start backing Kickstarters, alas.
