What is this Game?

Greg Stafford’s Pendragon RPG is one of the most interesting concepts for an RPG I have ever seen. The concept of playing romanticized fair-tale knights of Arthurian legend venturing in the same realm as the Knights of the Round table has always intrigued me. I picked up my first Pendragon book back in 3rd edition, over ten years ago. It was clear to me then that the game design was amazing for its time, but I could not get past my frustrations with the Choasium system. Every attempt at running Pendragon failed, and failed miserably.

I was introduced to John Wick’s Legend of the Five Rings RPG in 1995, and have been playing it ever since. My live gaming group praises our 3+ yearlong campaign set in the years of the Clan Wars as one of the best campaigns they have ever played. Legend of the Five Rings uses the Roll & Keep mechanics, one of my favorite system/setting combos ever made.

Very recently, I realized just how close the concept of Pendragon and L5R were as settings. In L5R, players take the role of romanticized Samurai (Asian nobles) set in a fantasy Asia full of turmoil, intrigue and tales of heroics. In Pendragon, players take the role of romanticized Knights (European nobles) set in a fantasy England full of the same story elements one might find in Legend of the Five Rings.

This is my attempt to bring the setting work of Pendragon into a system I feel is better suited to handle the type of game I would like to run. I have great respect to the creators of both games, and all the reasonably priced books filled with entertainment they have provided us over the years.
