Coming SIEGE PERILOUS Coming To Kickstarter

Siege Perilous is a solo and troupe (group) roleplaying game about Arthurian knights questing across England. You will travel through the life of your knight, encountering characters, enemies, and NPCs. You will undertake quests, both for your own advancement and that of those you serve alongside and for.

Siege Perilous about getting older and moving past old scars that still pull at you. It's about loss, discovery, pursuing perfection and failing. It is about romance, battle, conflict, duty, loyalty, love, faith, and death.
Siege Perilous is powered by a heavily rewritten and modified version of Firelights by Fari Games (see the end of this document). You will use Tarot cards to define your quests and goals, while using dice (two six-sided ones) and minor arcana cards to resolve and undertake actions. The game features one quest for every major arcana, as well as rules for battles, manors, challenges, aging, and romances.

Details & Features​

  • Solo roleplaying focused on travelling and exploring Britain as you pursue glory through the accomplishment of quests.

From Alan Bahr / Gallant Knight Games​

This game (more than anything else I've published to this point) comes from a very directly personal and essential place for me. I've put nearly a decade of thought, work, and inspiration into this game (and even half-heartedly made a previous version as a chapbook zine).
However, this Kickstarter represents my intended vision for this product, one I consider essential for my body of work in gaming. I've learned a lot over the last decade about making games, and in many ways, Siege Perilous represents a new steppingstone for how I approach game design.
