  1. David had never made a character with a lot of points in awareness... until a failed check resulted in a blob monster forcing its way down his throat and crushing him from the inside. Call of Cthulhu strikes again!

    I am really disappointed that the Squire's quest didn't end with them triumphantly returning with the slain corpse of a boar, and then everyone being forced to sit down and learn to read so that they could get written instructions in the future.

    1. They were so close to heading back without having killed the bear! So close!

    2. I'm happy to have ruined that particular plan. Out-of-character INT score for the win!

  2. The character whose grandfather died in the Night of Long Knives should have rolled 3d6+6 for his Hate Saxons passion.

  3. Can I ask what character sheet you use? The only form fillable pdf character sheet I've found so far has font size problems.

    1. From the comment on one of the other recordings, I'm guessing they come from the book of records.

    2. Yup, we were using the Book of Records. The PDFs print out just fine, although there are one or two lines that do have small bugs in them. Nothing terrible, though.

      In the end, my players ended up going with old-fashioned blank sheets, which you can find at the link below, since we're keeping digital records backed up at the campaign's Obsidian Portal page anyway--the form-fillable PDFs ended up being a bit redundant for our purposes.

  4. What did you use for the "player's kits" that you handed out to them? I'm starting up a KAP campaign soon, and I hope to steal as much as possible from you.

  5. I bought a pack of report binders and printed out two-sided character sheets (I prefer Taliesin's design these days: https://www.dropbox.com/s/untlsmod8sjcrt3/Taliesins-Pendragon-Generic-sheet-v7.pdf), then printed the two-sided manor record sheet from the Book of the Estate, and a family record sheet on one side (http://www.gspendragon.com/images/familyrecord.pdf), and a guide to coat-of-arms design from the old _Book of Knights_ on the other side, although that side would probably be better-used with perhaps an expanded treasury record sheet (http://www.gspendragon.com/images/treasurerecord.pdf) or Winter Phase synopsis (http://www.adnd3egame.com/documents/revisedwinterphase.pdf).

    I also printed out three maps:

    - A stylized map of Central Logres: http://www.gspendragon.com/images/maplogres.jpg
    (This map is maybe _too_ stylized--the players rarely refer to it, and when they do they don't get much out of it. I'm tempted to replace it with a more general of Arthurian Britain, such as this: http://www.gspendragon.com/images/mapworthingtonbritain.jpg)

    - A map of the Salisbury region: http://www.gspendragon.com/images/salisburysmallandrew.jpg

    - A zoomed-in map of Salisbury and its manors: http://gspendragon.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/salisbury_manor_krijger1.jpg
