    Re: [Misfit Studios] Do-Gooders & Daredevils Knights of the Pentangle for M&M3e Released

    Just purchased and really enjoyed - first an admission I'm not a fan of swords and lethal weapons being used by heroes in a UK setting but for anyone who would like to bring King Arthur and his Knights into a campaign really need to buy this as this pdf contains some wonderful write ups and wonderful ideas. 37 pages worth of ideas including details of New Camelot, the political issue of an alternative claim to throne by a mythical monarch, the reincarnated knights and a young Merlin (he ages backwards after all) including a cybernetic Galahad (previously the hero Templar) a black Guinevere (previously a thief called Neural) and background to the Holy Grail as a chalice (as opposed to a stone or cauldron both of which were alternative descriptions).

    My only pet peeve (and it really is a minor one) is that Gawain's strength didn't increase throughout the daytime as per the most common legend about the character.

    I'll admit I'm not sure how I'd personally use King Arthur and the Knights as written in my current campaign but elements will definitely leak through as they are too good not to and I definitely want these characters as part of my collection. If the use of guns and swords aren't a turn-off in your campaign then they will make for interesting alternative overseas heroes and I'm actually playing with the idea myself of making them misguided villains determined to reclaim the throne and control of the UK (there was a Chaosium CoC adventure who's name currently escapes me that had a similar theme) as Arthur believes he's been raised to become the future king replacing the current system of democracy with feudal system of government.

    Regardless of how you play them, this is a superb supplement and well worth the money... Now I just need to wait for Better Mousetrap to make it to the shelves.

      This review is great -- I appreciate it!

      Can you do me a favour and also post it on RPGNow/Drivethru? That would be very helpful. (As for Better Mousetrap, I'm still chugging through the layout. It's coming!)
