Arthur's Legacy (Arthurian Modern Fantasy - Main World Guide)


Avalon rises and legends are Reborn! 

  • Take on the role of a Knight, a reincarnated mystical warrior in service to immortal Nobles. 
  • Confront the return of magic to the modern world and explore the mysteries of this Age. 
  • Become a new legend as you (re)discover your true nature.

Explore a rich setting with a modern take on classic tales! 

  • King Arthur and his bastard son, Mordred, have returned with the rise of Avalon. 
  • After a short but brutal civil war, they make a fragile peace and form the Kingdom of Avalon. 
  • Arthur Pendragon rules as High King and Mordred Pendragon is heir apparent as First Prince, jointly ruling House Pendragon. 
  • The rise of Avalon and Avalonain civil war throws the world into chaos, but most nations come to some accord with the Reborn in the aftermath. Each region and country has its own unique relationship with the Kingdom of Avalon.

Who will you give your vow?

Join the cause of Arthur as a member of Ordo Camelot. Join the cause of Mordred as a member of Ordo Morrigan. Or cast your lot with another Order or Lodge of Avalon.

Ordo Viridis are the Green Knights of lore. The Urban Knights of Ordo DuFleuve worship The City, while the Free Knights of Ordo DuLac venerate Honor above all else. Among the Fallen Lodges, there are the dread necromancers of the Tombknockers and the mad reality crackers of the Phantom Edge. Each has their place and purpose in the great kingdom.

Product Information

File Size:
12.58 MB
Original electronic
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.
