Outstanding for both beginners and experienced players, Prince Valiant® The Storytelling Game is a roleplaying game set in the Arthurian world of Hal Foster’s masterpiece comic strip. The game is by world-renowned game designer Greg Stafford (RunequestKing Arthur Pendragon). Like the majority of Greg’s games, the original edition of this game released in 1989 was published by Chaosium, Inc.

This storytelling game features deliberately simple mechanics to make it more accessible to younger players. The ease of play allows players to cooperate and enjoy the social activity of collectively creating a story, a pastime made easier as players take turns as the Storyteller.

Hal Foster’s comic strip has been praised for its art, story, historicity, and humanity. Prince Valiant and the other characters are brought to life through Foster’s storytelling and stunning artwork. Greg Stafford vividly communicates the wonder and adventure of Prince Valiant® in this new edition of his storytelling game, and players of the game find themselves continuing the traditions of the oral storytellers of old.

The new Prince Valiant® The Storytelling Game is a significant improvement over the original B&W softcover. Notably, Hal Foster’s amazing artwork appears in color. The entire rulebook is full color! We’ve adding an insane number of Foster’s amazing illustrations.

The text has also been updated. Though the game is already designed to be accessible to a wide variety of players, it nevertheless contains some portions that have been modernized.

The Prince Valiant Episodes Book is available, full of scenarios and adventures to send brave knights on!

PURCHASER
What happened to the section of text that was about John Cullen Murphy that was in the original Chaosium version? Also, any chance of doing an supplement to up date the major characters and setting to take into account changes that have occurred in the comic strip? Valiant's kids are grown up now and you are seeing less historical accuracy in the newer strips. (They had Lovecraft references in a few in the past couple of years for example and more and more supernatural/fantasy stuff showing up I've notice.)

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.
