Yes. A local group I joined a few years back claimed to have played it and in hopes of them playing it again I began collecting the books(Chaosium only), which I think are awesome, anyways, never played it and have listened to two separate groups podcast sessions which were very entertaining, I do like the system and the Arthurian setting.

We're fixing some things but I'll put the link in this thread when it's ready. I think we've got close to 30 hours right now.

And it's up.

There are bits and pieces of sexual content within so beware. Our group tends to play for keeps.

If you just want a taste of the 30+ hours and don't want to go through the whole thing I would recommend 490 AD for an epic yet deadly scope. Renee lost two characters in a short time and other players came close to dying but prevailed.

The 491 A.D. duo has a good chunk of humor within, especially sexual.

This is a new thing for all of us. I had to beg some of them to let me record the game at first but now they're on board but we're all new and exploring it with the little free time that we have in our lives. As a result there are no official sections for comments yet and the like but you can PM me if you want me to pass a message on to one of my players.

Thanks.

Next week the final session of the Uther Period. This campaign is 81 years and they have done 11 of them. I suspect this campaign will be 2.5 to 3 years and I get players will come and go, too.

The Uther Period of The Great Pendragon Campaign has ended for my group.

At the Battle of St. Albans we had three PC deaths, 2 captured (and later ransomed) and a sixth who went mad from a fumbled passion. Fortunately, everyone gets their noble house is their main character and had back ups.

In other news we're going to have a website up soon enough but until then you an access hearing the games at the Onedrive link given in previous posts.

Our podcasts of The Great Pendragon Campaign by Greg Stafford are up better than ever. We now have summaries of the particular sessions with pretty pictures and such.

If you like it well enough you can now subscribe and leave comments.

Moreover, it’s easy to remember the site now compared to the old Onebox link. We own these addresses now:

www.thegreatpendragoncampaign.com

www.pendragoncampaign.com

www.greatpendragoncampaign.com

At a later point it’s possible this will go over to Youtube for gaming or some other variation but it’s too early to tell. Remember, I had to drag some of my players kicking and screaming to record it.

If you play this openly some content isn’t suitable for minors.
Lastly, for those who don’t know what the GPC is here’s an impressive blurb:

Premise

The Complete Epic of The Greatest Hero of Western Legend

Winner of the 2007 Diana Jones Award for Excellence in Gaming

For 1500 years King Arthur’s story has been told around campfires, in noble courts, in taverns, books, movies and now, with the prize-winning King Arthur Pendragon roleplaying game, at your game table.

The Great Pendragon Campaign begins during the reign of Arthur’s father King Uther, when player knights can participate in the events of Arthur’s conception. The long and brutal Interregnum of Saxon wars is forever altered when Arthur draws the Sword from the Stone to start his great and glorious reign. The Boy King leads his knights through periods of consolidation and expansion until the entire Western world is brought under his sway. Then, to High Adventure! Knights gain Glory and lands in the periods of Romance and Tournaments, and at last engage in the greatest adventure of all, The Quest for the Holy Grail. Then, amidst tragedy and broken dreams, the Twilight Period draws the epic to a close.

Eighty years of campaign detailed year-by-year provide the background, on-going events and adventures that define structure of King Arthur’s glorious reign.

The Magic is in The Details, and The Details are in This Book.

Included in this book are:
* Year-by-year details from 485 to 566.
* Maps and descriptions of Logres, Cambria. Cornwall, Brittany, Cumbria, the North, Ireland and France
* Maps of the important cities of Britain, including Early and Late Camelot and London
* Over 100 Adventures
* Statistics for over 50 Faerie Creatures and Nonplayer Characters
* Expansions for the Pendragon rules

“I’ve been working on this book for over 20 years, since the first publication of King Arthur Pendragon. This is the culmination of forty years of research, pleasure and gaming. It’s a tremendous joy to bring my love of the legend all together here.” –Greg Stafford, designer of King Arthur Pendragon

Comments are open for our podcast The Great Pendragon Campaign (Arthurian style for those who don't know the tabletop RPG).

Do us a favor and leave us a comment somewhere on the page because we want to be sure: (1) It's working; and (2) it's easily accessible for you. If not let us know the issue and we'll do our best to fix it.

Thanks in advance.
