And all that for a mere £1 a year.

But no, I wish more games had an "upkeep" rule or the like that would make taking on squires and the like valuable for players.

Greetings!

Has anyone done anything like a Game of Thrones style Pendragon adventure? The players should be knights obviously, maybe from different houses forced to work together on an errand for the king.

Any experience in this, or am I breaking new ground? How would you handle intrigue? Would a social combat system make a meaningful addition, or is that too much for you?

The Rebellion in Salisbury is ended, but new troubles brew on the horizon. The knight try to find some new alliances for Sir Robert.

If anyone is running a pendragon session (preferably 5th) that is friendly to GMT time zone (starting around 7-10pm for a good session length) I'm desperate to join a game again - its been almost 5 yrs searching roll 20 for one and it seems more americans love pendragon than my own nation does lol! Nothing against them just they play when I am in bed haha :)

I'm very attracted to run The Great Campaign, but my time is very, very limited and I think that my group wouldn't resist such long play. Would be possible to make a "short version" of the campaign only with the most remarkable moments and make it fun?

Personally what makes this game so much fun is how long it actually is. There are key moments in history however the key moments you remember from running this game are the ones the dice and players create - the situations differ so differently from a common dnd game I think shortening it would actually hinder the unique fun

Another Pendragon session, with the help of references to world literature and Dutch folk heros the rebellion in Salisbury is put to an end.

Our King Arthur Podcast has cleared its first year! We're about 22 years in so I estimate another 3 years minimum. This will be the longest campaign I have ever run. High quality problem.

Check us out if you like and we're on iTunes now so you can even give us a review if you are feeling generous.

I can play on that time but I need to know which Edition it is but it's been a long time since I've played so I'm almost certainly forgotten pretty much everything about the game

Another #Pendragon  session. And the knights managed to impress their new Liege Lord Robert with their loyalty in the Siege of Levcomagus.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS (PLAYER KEEP AWAY)

What possible situations can arise where a PK's Modest trait of 16 is sorely tested? Ideas for court, adventure, battle, etc. are greatly appreciated.

+Voord Ninety-nine you're right, it was in reply to you ;)

I generally play with folk that get emotionally involved in their character's well being anyway, and see Pendragon as brutal enough in general play that trying to mechanically leverage seems Cruel (+1) - the players are already traumatised by the loss of horses and family members in the winter phase and reasonably frequent deaths that can occur.

Withholding Glory awards doesn't sit well with me, but of course, I'm not saying you have to play the way I do!  :)

I'm happy to play the game to the hilt and not pull punches, but tend to stay as a fan of the player knights and give rewards as they are due.

Even worse than not telling the DM the overarching metaplot, is when the whole metaplot is told to the DM, but the players will never be able to know about it. [looks right at most Pathfinder adventure paths]

The many living characters of the Great Pendragon Campaign. If you click another tab you can see all the dead PC knights (20+). We are entering our second year.

Hi all! I have a question: Is the 5th edition compatible with the 1st one? If so, The Great Pendragon Campaing can be used with the 1st edition... Thanks!

I would say so, yes. The rules are basically the same with an altered skill list, beefier bonuses for passion rolls and more advantages for chivalrous and religious knights.

Aside from that the D20 mechanic is the same, the stats, traits and passions are all the same.

I just had to share this with someone. I'm building a knight and was just rolling for the Statistics. Seems Roll20 loves this game! (There's no cheating here...)

Another Pendragonadventure! Morgaine finally marries and the rebels of Salisbury seem to be losing their battles.

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.
