I’ve sold 17 of the Pendragon 1st ed box sets since 2010, which is as far back as my easy-to-access records go.

Until today, I never really looked through the RPG box materials. The King Arthur legend I find interesting, but not compelling. But… This set is so gorgeous, and obviously a passion work, I’m putting it on my bucket list to play someday.
