Pendragon
I'm looking to experience the Pendragon system a bit. I got my hands on a PDF to join a game, and sadly the game died after some difficulties. However, while I didn't play long, I loved what I saw.

I'd like to have someone run a game of Pendragon again, maybe as a small party of up to 3 or 4 people, but definitely a little bit less of a straight book world. IE, I'd like to play the system in a new world without the overhanging doom of the loss of Arthur and the round table.

I have always heard good things about Pendragon, but I've never had the chance to play it. Count me in as a second player.

I'd be up for joining as a player.  Alas, can't GM worth a damn.  D:

There is a new game using the same Pendragon base mechanics, set in the (more historical) reign of Charlemagne.  This is called Paladin: Warriors of Charlemagne and is due out this spring/summer from Nocturnal.

That would be great, but I don't have the PDF (since it hasn't come out) and I'd like to get my settlement building fix going lol

In reply to Lord_Johnny (msg # 5):

Pendragon isn't a settlement-building game... and Paladin has already gone out to backers.

I agree with Alyse, in Pendragon, characters are not guaranteed to have a settlement.  When I GM I usually let players have some small parcel of their own, but settlement building is only one of many goals the characters can pursue.

I would be willing to run Paladin, but alas I missed the Kickstarter and it is not yet publicly available.  Hopefully soon.

Um, my understanding was that as knights (which you pretty much immediately become, as per the rulebook) you have a fief as you are landed knights. Fief's do come with a manor and a small village...and villages are settlements.

This is covered in:

Chapter 2: Char Generation, pg 26
Chapter 3: Family and Fatherland, pg 61



So, I think I'll have to change my request slightly to those who are well versed in the game mechanics. I will also have to ask that if you're not seriously offering to either run or be part of the party, that you not clog the thread. I don't want to get my hopes up that someone is doing one of those things only to find people aren't really looking at the rule book and mechanics at all.

All the settlement building you hope to do is not part of the main rules. You would need someone willing to add the complexity of Book Of The Manor or Book Of The Estate to the mix. Otherwise all you're doing is making Weather rolls and hoping not to be raided by Saxons.

Again, please either be apart of the game, volunteer to be the GM, or stand aside, as I don't want the thread clogged and lose the game offer.
