ArtHaus Publishing announced at Gencon that it has acquired the Pendragon roleplaying game from Peter Corless' Green Knight Publishing. The Arthurian dice-and-paper RPG was designed by Greg Stafford of Chaosium; Pendragon was acquired from Chaosium by Green Knight in 1998.
ArtHaus has common ownership with White Wolf, and its products are distributed by the larger company. Stewart Wieck of ArtHaus said of Pendragon, 'This game is not only the first roleplaying game that emphatically stressed story over game mechanics, but the game mechanics themselves are so artfully designed that they actually add to the story and character development rather than detract.'
ArtHaus also acquired the existing inventory of Pendragon products, which White Wolf will begin selling soon.
