Our project for a new edition of Greg Stafford’s classic roleplaying game Prince Valiant® The Storytelling Game is off to a gallop on Kickstarter. First published by Chaosium, Inc. in 1989 as a b&w softcover, the new edition is a hardcover book in glorious full color. The brilliant artwork by Prince Valiant® creator Hal Foster deserves this edition.
As does Greg’s outstanding game design. Prince Valiant® The Storytelling Game features a simple game system suitable for new and/or young roleplayers that uses coins instead of dice. While there are advanced rules that add addition careers and skills, the basic rules describe characters with two Attributes (Brawn and Presence) and fourteen skills.
The game is strongly oriented toward cooperative storytelling and allows for the everyone to become the Gamemaster. As GM you collect certificates that you can then use as a player for special effects like “Find Something Hidden” or “Knock an Opponent Senseless”.
Also available in the project are a Prince Valiant® gold coin, a new deck of Storypath Cards called Path of Chivalry, and copies of the new printing of King Arthur Pendragon that features the artwork of Jaime García Mendoza from last year’s Spanish translation of the game.
Based on the comic strip by Hal Foster that has been in continuous publication since 1937, Prince Valiant® The Storytelling Game captures the romantic and heroic essence of the Arthurian spirit. This edition allows a new generation of gamers and past admirers alike to tell tales in this gleaming and adventurous world.
Please visit the project page and consider supporting this new edition. The project runs through August 26th.
