OVERVIEW I am thinking of making a RPG centered around the Knights of the Round Table. The story will be loosely based on Galahad's quest for the Holy Grail, with bits of other Arthurian legend thrown in. Arthur will NOT be the protagonist and will be a NPC, because I want the story to focus on the other knights. Artie's simply too famous and will overshadow everyone if he's leading it. The gameplay will be a traditional Final Fantasy like JRPG. You start with Galahad, and eventually gather 11 other Knights. Each Knight will have his own unique skills, strengths, and weaknesses. You use different teams depending on your situation. Sources differ on the total number of knights but I like the 12 version. According to one source, these are the twelve Knights: Gawain, Ban, Bedivere, Ector, Gareth, Kay, Sir Lancelot, Launfal, Palomides, Sagramore, Ywain, Galahad, Bors, and Percival. However, I will most probably swap out some of the members for story purposes. QUESTION 1: Would you be interested in playing a game like this? Some notes on some of the characters: THE KNIGHTS Galahad The protagonist. If there is one. He will start out the weakest of all knights but become the strongest as he levels up. QUESTION 2: Which do you find more interesting: story focused on a few protagonists or all knights having equal share more or less? Bors and Percival Best buddies with protagonist. They'll definitely be in, but not sure how to cast them yet. Lancelot The character with the best overall stats and skills. Logically, you should always use him, but some players may hate him enough not to use him. I like that dilemma. QUESTION 3: I have two ideas on how to write him. 1. EVIL Lancelot: The guy who seduced the queen and eventually brought about the downfall of Camelot. 2. STARCROSSED Lancelot: A really good and honorable man who had the bad fortune of falling hopelessly in love with the boss's wife. Which kind of Lancelot would be more interesting? Launfal He's got a fairy girlfriend, so if somebody in the team had to be the "Mage" archtype, he's the best fit. He can still use a sword, but his magic is his most powerful asset. Kinda like Gandalf. Sagramore This guy seems to be the perfect Beserker type. QUESTION 4: Any other Knights you think is particularly interesting? QUESTION 5: I really want to have a female knight in the round table. Okay, okay, I KNOW according to canon all the knights were male. But let's suppose that one of them could be a woman in disguise. If so, who might it be? NON-KNIGHTS Dindrane AKA Percival's sister She might make an interesting female lead as she seems a strong character who directly influences much of Galahad's quest. Canon makes her a tragic figure as she either sacrifices her life or lives the rest of her life in seclusion. Possible romance pair up with Galahad? Guinevere Honestly, I never liked her very much. Still she IS the central female character in Arthurian legends. Not sure what to do with her yet. Morgause / Morgan Le Fey The arch villain of Arthurian legend. However, she seems to have no role in the grail quest. Maybe leave her out of the whole thing? Merlin He should probably play a central role, but as an NPC. QUESTION 6: Any other suggestions for a game based on the Knights of the Round Table welcome!
