King Arthur Pendragon is a roleplaying game set in Arthurian Britain. The game's vision of Arthurian Britain influenced by literature from Dark Ages legend through to modern interpretations, but the literature of the high Middle Ages is most influential. The game system is built for this version of Arthurian Britain, with the players all playing knights. Perhaps because of this focus, the game system is as close to perfect for the setting and narrative style of the game as I have ever found in any roleplaying game.

The core of the game has been almost unchanged through its various editions - if you purchase Pendragon 1st Edition you'll see how little the core mechanics have changed throughout the editions. The key difference between 5th edition and 4th edition is that 5th edition is more strongly focussed on the players playing knights, and that 5th edition is strongly coupled with "The Great Pendragon Campaign", which the Gamesmaster can use to guide the player knights through the entire Arthurian legend, from Arthur's conception through to the Battle of Camlann. The feel of 5th edition is therefore a lot more true to the literature and game designer's original intention than 4th edition. If, however, your group wants to play magicians, then 4th edition may be a better purchase as it includes magic rules. Both books will be equally compatible with the various supplements - you'll just have to work harder with 4th edition to play "The Great Pendragon Campaign".

This is one of the most outstanding roleplaying games I've ever played.

The details on the setting are plentiful, giving you a good feeling for 5th-6th century England. There are several maps on both county and country based scale with many places of interest.

The rules are extremely streamlined, and give strong control to the GM. The initial character creation process is involved (thirty minutes for first time PC.) In addition the game's dynastic gameplay where PC deaths are replaced with new members of their bloodline is very novel and having a small personal army creates adventures of scale in this military rich world.

Unlike many systems (but in the spirit of White Wolf) all the rules you need to play the game including monsters, NPCs and sample adventures are found in this core rulebook.

This is an excellent system, creating a whole new spin on Fantasy while revisiting knights in shining armor.

An excellent game that elegantly captures the tone and feel of the Arthurian myths.

The 5th edition is designer Greg Stafford's masterpiece: the tone of the text is consistent throughout, and Stafford's deep grasp and love of the Arthurian cycle is evident in the many asides and flavour boxes scattered through the text. The game system also manages to model the complex notions of chivalry though a very 'indie' mechanic of Passions, which makes roleplaying in Pendragon a lot of fun because you're never sure if your character is always going to act in exactly the way you'd like him/her to.

The PDF quality is good, and is fully bookmarked. Highly recommended, especially at the current price of under $20. A bargain that will give you many hours of fun play. (Also be sure to get the Great Pendragon Campaign to go along with this text.)

La mise en page est curieuse, avec un décalage du texte, mais je pense que c'est pour permettre de faire des trous pour les pages. :)
