Dark Ages Roleplaying in War Torn Britannia
Age of Arthur is our pen and paper roleplaying game set in Britannia, two generations after the withdrawal of the Roman Empire.
Using a variant of the Fate gaming engine, Age of Arthur takes you back to an age of desperate heroism, when a brave few battled for freedom against an ever growing invading power.
Take up your spear and shield, draw up the power of the old gods, make binding oaths of honour and create your own ballad fighting for a united Britannia, the old ways, for the memory of Rome, when all is crumbling into barbarism about you.

What people are saying…
“I picked this up pretty much as soon as it came out…I was not disappointed.
I love it and cant wait to run it – if I can get the usual suspects interested….”
Private Eye, rpg.net
“I found it’s a fantastic game. Top production values, extensive historical and mythical research, a sound and tried system and above all lots of ambience. Very much worth taking a look if you are remotely interested.”
“Oozing with atmosphere from two authors who know their stuff, powered by a nice clean implementation of Fate (based off Diaspora) with extra rules for mass combat and magic and evocative full page colour art. Thrilling stuff.”
Newt Newport, d101 games
“I like this a lot, and I think it may well become my go-to system and setting for anything vaguely Dark Age I want to do.”
Jane Williams, review on Drivethrurpg, five stars
