Sourcebook for the Saxons, who warred with Arthur or coexisted in an uneasy peace. It covers their history, culture and heroes; and provides details of how to generate Saxon characters and how their own brand of magic works within the game.
Publisher's blurb: "The definitive roleplaying sourcebook on the advent of the Angles, Saxon and Jutes in Britain! The Romans fortified the southeast coast of Britain and called it 'the Saxon Shore' to defend against the piracy of these wolves of the sea. But after the Roman legions left, the tyrant King Vortigern invited them into Britain as mercenaries to fight his enemies. Ambitious and treacherous, they siezed Vortigern as a hostage and slaughtered his nobles at Stonehenge during the 'Night of the Long Knives.' Now, forced forever from their homelands on the Continent, the Saxons are in Britain to stay. Some work for peace. Most others for war. Not even the combined armies of King Arthur can eradicate them, though their power will be broken for a generation after the epochal Battle of Badon. This is the story of the rise to power of the proud and energetic Germanic peoples who rule the south and east coasts and renamed their new domain 'England.'"
