We recently posted about the upcoming movie The Green Knight. With all the uncertainty around movie theaters re-opening the movie is stuck in limbo and it’s still unclear when it will hit the silver screen. I’m hoping they push it to a digital release on Netflix or some other service.
A24, the distributor for The Green Knight, isn’t sitting idly by waiting for the movie release. They partnered with Timm Woods to create The Green Knight: A Fantasy Role Playing Game, a pencil and paper RPG. It’s reminiscent of the old Dungeon and Dragons campaigns from the 1980s. In fact, the artwork, box and manual design have the same look.
The promo video is even a throwback to the 80s!
The first campaign release is called A Quest for Honor. Here’s the official description:
An epic reimagining of the classic Arthurian tale, what begins as a game will become an odyssey into the unknown to prove thy worth in the eyes of the Kingdom. From the hallowed halls of Camelot to the mysterious wilds of the fabled Green Chapel, embark on a mythical journey in search of the Green Knight. With Honor at stake, will you rise to meet the challenge?
Crown a Game Master, choose your character—Knight, Noble, Hunter, Sorcerer, or Bard—and test your Honor on a merciless quest. Every choice matters as you face deranged highwaymen, ghostly damsels, mystical creatures, and more. But be warned––The Green Knight’s challenge is not for the faint of heart. Prove yourself worthy…or off with thy head.
A Quest for Honor starter set contains: Game Master’s Guide (with Rules of Play, Official Encounters, and A24 Bonus Quests), Map of the Realm, 5 character sheets, and 20-sided die. You can pre-order The Green Knight on the A24 shop page. The game is scheduled to ship in late August.
