I never really felt any heat for Pendragon. It's not that I disparaged it, or had a low opinion of it -- I just didn't, you know, want some. Just like sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.
I just finished reading Lyonesse, and have Madouc and The Green Pearl coming on the Bookmobile tomorrow. So my Pendragon temperature is changing.
I don't have the game, but I have BRP and I have GKP's The Book Of Knights. So I can probably get into some Pendragon-y trouble if so I desire. Plus, nothing stops me from running some C&C in an Elder Isles-inspired setting, upon which I have already decided.
