In Keltia, you are one of the heroes of the Dark Ages in the time of Arthur, when Britain was still a land of legends. Take part in the great battles sung of by the bards. Travel from the court of kings to the boundaries of the Island of Beli the Great, perhaps even enter the mists of the Otherworld. Maybe you will witness the end of the time of legends and the arrival in history of the greatest hero of Britain that will ever be: Arthur Pendraeg.

You might be a clan warrior, a druid, a bard or a mage. Myrddin the Elder may guide you to search for the forgotten gods, hidden treasures and conspiracies to foil, taking you to the darkest forests, the mists of enchanted isles and haunted cairns. The bards will sing of your feats for centuries to come.

Companions of the Dragon King, children of Ynys Prydein, prepare to become legends!

Keltia is set on the isle of Ynys Prydein; the Romans knew this land as Britannia, whilst you may know it as Great Britain. It is set in the real world, at the end of the 5th Century AD, but with the premise that Arthurian legends and Celtic mythology is all real.

Arthur Pendraeg stands ready to take the throne, advised by the high druid Myrddin the Elder. Magic is real if rare, wielded only by those who have the blood of the Tylwyth Teg, the Faerie People, in their veins. There are monsters abroad in the world, if one knows where to look, carogne and coblynau and gryphons. Perhaps there are dragons out there too, slumbering somewhere in this world.

In Keltia you play one of the heroes of Ynys Prydein, chosen by Destiny for some greater, as yet unrevealed purpose. You might play a taciturn clan warrior, a quarrelsome bard, an enigmatic druid, a boastful cymbrog or an aloof mage.

There is renown to be earned and riches to be won, for those brace enough to seize them!

Keltia uses the same system as found in Yggdrasill, a quick and simple set of mechanics, designed for fast-paced, exciting and heroic actions! It uses ten-sided dice – d10s – and each player will need between 5 and 10.

To make a test, a player rolls a number of d10 equal to his Characteristic. He then picks his two best results, adds them together along with a Skill and compares them to a target number (typically 14). If a 10 is rolled, the player may roll the dice again and add that to the total along with the 10.

The heroes of Keltia have a pool of strength and fury that they can draw upon to spur them onto greater deeds – this is their Furor pool, and they may expend it to roll extra dice in a test.

You can read more about all of the above in the Keltia Core Rulebook, which will be available to pre-order next week!

Keltia is written by Neko, Florrent, Thibault Dapremont and Kristoff Valla, and illustrated by Antonio Jose Manzanedo Luis, Jerome Hugenin, Florrent, David Lecossu, Nicolas Jamme and Xavier Colette.

Still no review for this? I know it has the same ruleset as Yggdrassill but how is the flavor text? How well is the Arthurian Legend made playable? Dieing to know so I can decide to purchase this or not. (I like the ruleset but I found Yggdrassill a bit hard to build a campaign around).

There is a review up at www.alanbahr.net

TL;DR - I bought it, I love it.

Thanks! Still haven't purchased it but am leaning more and more in that direction. What specifically do you love about it?

The setting is pretty well-fleshed out and the prebuilt campaign (if you get the Avalon book) is fantastic. The rules are only so-so but they serve their purpose.

Original electronic
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.
