Tainted Grail: the role-playing game

Avalon fell 100 years ago. Now it's your turn to write the story in this table top roleplaying game!

Forced to flee the Continent because of a deadly plague known as the Red Death, the legendary King Arthur and his people once found a new home on the island of Avalon. However, this was no hospitable haven: humanity had to fight for its survival against the forces of the Wyrdness - a primordial power that can alter matter and the mind - and the Foredwellers - four-armed titans and the island's original inhabitants. A century ago, a terrible cataclysm named The Fall of Avalon struck a blow to the vulnerable forces of humanity. What remains of humanity's descendants live scattered around the island, striving to survive and regain its former splendor.

In Tainted Grail: Song of a Dying World, your characters are destined to become the legendary "Guardians of Avalon", a group of individuals marked by Arthur's power and meant to defend humanity in difficult times against the island's forces.
