Recently Chris Crawford declared that his magnum opus, "Le Morte D'Arthur" was ready for public consumption. I've playtested this game since September and have kept it under wraps as best I could (I mentioned it obliquely in my post
Weak Passions, Strongly Held). I consider this one of Chris' finest achievements. Few things can take credit for shaking my very soul loose and changing my life for the better. Usually I can find some inspiration in most things, but this was like a wall of alarm clocks.
Now, it could be because of what I'm going through with my cancer. I fully admit that my soul is a little closer to the surface than usual. But even so, it crystallized feelings and ideas that have just been floating around loose in my system.
Chris has posted a video about the design of Le Morte D'Arthur. I think it will help frame what to expect from this experience. View it here:

I think it's an absolute masterpiece. Judge for yourself. All I ask is that you enter with an open heart, and open mind, and the willingness to keep trying it. It's not your conventional game and that's by design.
