Heroes of legend in their own time.

They have all fought and dedicated themselves to and sacrificed ideals to put him on the throne and unite the nation under his rule. The hard decisions, however, are not all behind them.

Legends of Camelot is an epic fantasy-scenario which lets the players collaborate to create their own legend. Whether it resembles something we know or becomes something entirely different is completely up to the players.

What you do in life, echoes in eternity!

The scenario builds on the common knowledge of Camelot, while the players are allowed to shape and explore how the heroes of legend were as people and create their own legend.

The scenario requires a lot of co-creation from the players, aided and supported by the gamemaster and the tools of the scenario. The scenario is played in semi-live and with a nod to the theatrical.
