About this experience
Pendragon – Learn to Play: The Adventure of the Sword Tournament
The year is 510, albeit just so: the ninth day of January, to be precise. The cold, gray, leaden skies of winter mirror the mood of the land. None have worn the crown of Logres since the death of King Uther fifteen years ago. The last High King of Britain, Uther’s brother Aurelius Ambrosius, died 30 years ago. All of Britain suffers under the depredations of rapacious, ambitious barons and raiders.
In Pendragon players take the roles of knights seeking Glory in service to their liege lord and, as the years pass, their descendants. In this session we will run through the recently released “The Adventure of the Sword Tournament” quick start rules and adventure which is a preview of the forthcoming 6th edition of the game. Since its original publication in 1985, Pendragon has consistently been considered one of the best role-playing games out there, with Shannon Appelcline saying it, “…could be lauded as a top RPG solely based upon the innovation it brought to the industry…However, even today, Pendragon remains vital. It provides a picture-perfect model of literary knighthood and, through its well-crafted and well-considered design, effortlessly conjures its theme — so successfully, in fact, that few other publishers in the last 20 years have even tried to bring another Arthurian roleplaying game to market. You just can't improve on perfection.”
Pre-generated knights will be provided for this session. If you have any questions please reach out to House GM James on Discord.
House GM James Backstory
I was hooked on RPGs the very first time I sat down with my friend Connor and rolled up an Elf using TSR’s Basic D&D, aka the Red Box. Since that time, I have played in and/or run games of four of the five editions of the world’s most popular role-playing game, Shadowrun (1st-4th eds.), Cyberpunk 18.104.22.168, Legend of the Five Rings (1st ed.), Seventh Sea (1st ed.), Call of Cthulhu, and several oWoD White Wolf games, among others.
As for my GM’ing style, I like to center the characters in the story and let everything emanate from there with the players driving the tone of the table itself. I enjoy running games that run the gamut from light-hearted romps to dark suspense to everything in between and as an avocational folk lorist and historian, I enjoy bringing obscure folk lore or an embarrassing amount of research to the gaming table.
