This first Book of Records features a two-page autofilling character record for a knight character in King Arthur Pendragon. This PDF record works for all Phases of the Pendragon Campaign, though a separate sheet suitable for Late Phase knights is included. Both record sheets are also offered in printer-friendly black-and-white versions. The PDF product automatically completes a variety of calculations based on your character choices, including all the options introduced in the Book of Knights & Ladies. The sheet tracks Fealty and Homage, the new Loyalty Passions introduced in the Book of the Estate, though that supplement is not required for play.

Additional features:

  • Choose from 13 different cultural backgrounds, from Aquitanian (Arian Christian) to Saxon (Germanic Pagan), though Cymric (British Christian) is the default selection.
  • Your cultural selection automatically indicates the Personality Traits associated with your knight’s Religious Bonus and autofills the starting values for all Personality Traits.
  • Armor Type, Horses, and a number of fields associated with your knight’s family, including Family Characteristic, feature pull-down menus of the all the available options. The campaign year that a specific horse becomes available is noted as well!
  • All of the Derived Statistics (e.g. Damage and Healing Rate) are automatically calculated and filled based on your Primary Statistics (e.g Strength).
  • The Glory Total noted on the front page automatically updates based on Glory gains and losses you note on back page.
  • Most fields can be overwritten by the player to allow for house rules and character maintenance over time.

King Arthur Pendragon is a streamlined game system, but knights undergo constant change and growth. The record sheets included here allow your characters to remain current and dramatically simplifies the creation of new knights — PC’s and NPC’s alike! Future volumes of the Book of Records are planned, including auto-calculating records for Estates and Honours, Continental characters and Ladies.

Thanks, Michael B. for your review. Yes, the Adobe PDF platform has its limitations, but, alas, coding an application from scratch was not an option for us. We do explain that the download is a PDF in the product description and do warn users of one of the platform's limitations that could result in data loss in the Designer's notes, as you say. But the notes also show how to easily mitigate the risk — and how to recover easily by saving a backup just in case. We've been using these sheets since their release and haven't lost any data since originally discovering the flaw in the Acrobat platform.

We're still planning on releasing sheets for Estates and Honours, hopefully later this year. We hope you give them a try. But, yeah — PDF. But these won't be nearly as complex as the Knight's Records so hopefully we can avoid the one issue altogether.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
