King Arthur Pendragon RPG: Starter Set
This is a game of Arthurian legends.
Do you believe in chivalry, or do you think might always makes right? Are you willing to die for your Honor? Will you fight to rid the world of injustice, or use clout and power to take advantage of those beneath you? It is the age of Pendragon! What kind of Knight will you become?
Pendragon is a world of brutal medieval realism, that focuses on the emotional impact of play, and strives to make the players feel as invested, loving, and frightened about their characters as their characters themselves would feel. Pendragon is a game that walks a fine line between lethal reality, and the idealism of a visionary life dedicated to the highest values.
The Pendragon Starter Set contains everything a fledgling Gamemaster requires to run a band of freshly-knighted characters through several adventures in the historic fantasy of King Arthur’s Britain.
Contains three soft-cover books.
- The Adventure of the Sword in the Stone is a solo scenario that teaches you the basic rules as you play.
- The World of Pendragon outlines everything you need to know about the setting and core mechanics of the game.
- The Sword Campaign is a series of linked, beginner-friendly adventures that take the Player-knights through five in-game years of King Arthur’s reign!
Lastly, the appendix sheets additional rules and setting details you’ll discover as you play through The Sword Campaign. The set comes with 18 perforated cards allowing you to generate combat encounters, and quickly reference enemy combat mechanics. The box also contains 8 pre-generated Player-knights, ready for adventure with full-color character art and backstory.
And, of course, no Starter Set would be complete without a set of dice! The box includes 7 dice: 6D6, and 1D20.
