Book of the Warlord, softback supplement for Pendragon, by Greg Stafford
“Lifestyles of Ye Rich and Famous
You are a lord among lords — a mighty baron commanding a company of loyal men sworn to your banner. You’ve cut a red swath to the very pinnacle of medieval society. What now?
Book of the Warlord presents an unprecedented look at the workings of the greater nobility during the tumultuous reign of Uther Pendragon, the Anarchy that follows it, and the rise of Arthur the Boy King. From details on the prime movers at court to rules concerning baronial rights, holdings, armies, liberties, and temptations, it is the definitive guide to living large in the Early Phase of the Great Pendragon Campaign — itself widely hailed as one of the seminal works in the history of roleplaying games.
Players get a streamlined way to manage their enormous holdings, two new courtly solo scenarios, and an all-new mini-game for simulating Graft, that ever-present temptation for those in positions of power. Gamemasters get a ton of never-before-seen maps, an astonishing catalog of over 200 castles, rules for quickly generating warlord Gamemaster characters, and much more.
Made by and for fans of the award-winning King Arthur Pendragon roleplaying game, the must-have Book of the Warlord contains a true treasure trove of material for any medieval or fantasy roleplaying game.”
