Quests in King Arthur stories are about ideals, conflict and temptation. 

Pilgrimage of the Sun Guard is a solo prompt-based journaling game where you create a Sun Guard and travel alone on a quest, attempting to hold to your Code until you reach the end, facing trials and complications along the way.  

You are the last Sun Guard. Will you take up the mantle and ride the ancient roads?

What folks are saying about the game 

PixeltheDM played the game on Twitch.

The Weekly Scroll reviewed the game:

"It was a delight to see the Sun Guard ascendant, and I look forward to playing it again! One of the first times a journal game caused me to sit back and re-read something I'd written again and again in awe.” - Pixel Harman

@Seedling Games: “ What’s really cool about this one is it captures a sense of the heroic and mythological that often doesn’t actually come through in TTRPGs. A lot of TTRPGs are nominally about going on a quest, but this one is really about going on a quest.“ - SeedlingGames

“I love this game! The character creation was one of the high points for me: you have 4 archetypes, heavily inspired by traditional knight tales and legends, and each of those with a clear distinction from one another, described in a minimalistic and yet effective and compelling way...On a mechanical level, it’s a rules-light yet deep game; on a narrative level, you get all the tools to give flesh to your character with simple steps; a beautiful game with an amazing theme that’s carried in every single detail.” - Armanda

this solo ttrpg is very well designed and simply drips with personality. The vibes are immaculate and very fun. Reminds me of the Green Knight !

Thank you for your kind words! I’m glad you enjoyed it.

I really enjoyed playing Pilgrimage of the Sun Guard, especially the difficulty of trying to decide if i should continue my task but break my code.

I made a short video review:

A very flavorful and engaging journaling game. The resource management and variety of scenarios to run into  made me excited for each journal entry. My only critique is that with a good roll of resources plus your 6 units of time, it's fairly easy to avoid breaking your code. I also wish the penalties for corruption were more punishing, but the optional rules the game includes can help increase difficulty in that regard. 

Overall though, totally worth a try for the journey it allows you to tell.
