Upcoming Arthurian Movie The Green Knight Has An RPG

The Green Knight, an Arthurian-themed movie starring Dev Patel as Sir Gawain has been delayed because of the global pandemic. However, you can pre-order the official RPG which releases in August!

The game is called The Green Knight: A Quest for Honor. Characters come in the form of knights, nobles, hunters, sorcerers, and bards, and comes in a boxed set with a rulebook, a book of encounters, a d20, character sheets, and a map. The game costs $35 and ships on August 7th.


As for the movie itself, here's the description: "An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur's reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table."


Here's a quick look at the movie's teaser trailer.

I am thinking about if WotC should publish more "crossover" products. One option would be a board game using a simple version of d20 to be easy to be learn by +7 or +10 children and the title "Endless Quest", or a videogame for tablets. Other option would be almost-canon crossovers, using like "joker card" something like a dreamland/akasha demiplane, a world created by shards of the collective memories, allowing to play "clones" of famous franchises, for example the videogames "Borderlands", "Street Fighters" or "Link: Legend of Zelda", or even characters from sci-fi IPs as "guest artists", for example PCs from "Gamma World" or d20 Future.

I wonder if they pronounce "Gawain" correctly... But so far it looks better than "First Knight".

It was my understanding that "Gawain" could be pronounced either way.

I would get this, but worry this is just a step up from the Wendy's RPG, and I that my money would be better spent supporting something like Chaosium's Pendragon.


It was my understanding that "Gawain" could be pronounced either way.

From alliterative poetry (where the "Ga-" is the alliterative element, and his name even changes to "Wawain" sometimes to fit the alliteration), and medieval romances in other languages ("Walewijn" in Dutch, for instance), it's clear that the emphasis is on the first syllable. Just try saying "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" both ways, and you'll see how it fits the rhythm better (particularly if you say "grene" instead of "green", like in the original title).

And if nothing else, the modern version "Gavin" is pronounced with the emphasis on the first syllable.
