This is my most-complete working list of kingdoms and counties of Pendragon Britain, and their leaders. I tried to use as many names as I could from romance and legend. Modern county place names are used only when they were used in a Medieval source, although most places smaller than a kingdom or county are historical. I used as many sources as possible, and some of these are quite obscure. A few names are from my own campaigns. This is a work in progress, and likely to be updated.

This list matches the list in Knights & Ladies, advanced character generation, and also includes the non-player lands.

Category: Places provides a full list for every documented region.

Dinas Emrys Cambria- A small castle (strong rectangular tower, built within a Roman enclosure). The ”Fort of Ambrose” was originally a prehistoric hill fortress on Mt. Snowdon. Later the Romans built a small garrison fort to guard the copper mines nearby. After the Romans the tyrant Vortigern came to hide here, and tried to build a tower which mysteriously kept falling down. They brought a fatherless boy to be sacrificed to appease the spirits, but it was Merlin the Magician at his first public appearance. He prophesied the actual cause, and under his instructions two dragons were discovered who fought each night and shook down the castle. Vortigern abandoned the site and gave it to Merlin, who later gave it to Aurelius Ambrosius (or in Cambria, Emrys Gledwig). It has since fallen to the King of Gomeret. Merlin’s treasure is hidden someplace nearby, to be retrieved when a boy with yellow hair and blue eyes hears a bell ring, whereupon a rock will fall aside to reveal a gold cauldron full of riches.

Fountains Cumbria-The foundation of the Cistercian Abbey of St. Mary ad fontes was unorthodox and surrounded by controversy. Inspired by the foundation of Rievaulx, in March 514 thirteen Benedictine monks from St. Mary's Abbey left Eburacum to start a new Cistercian house in desolate Skeldale, following a violent confrontation between the Abbot of St. Mary's and the Archbishop of Eburacum. The Archbishop gave them a large tract of uncultivated land, watered by pure springs (or fontes, i.e. fountains). The first winter was harsh and morale was low, but in 516 they were joined by Huw, former Dean of Eburacum, who brought financial resources and a library. Fountains soon grew in size and fame, and is now one of the most celebrated Cistercian houses in Britain, and by far the richest, with over L356 in revenue. It has seven daughter houses, more than fifty monks, and over two hundred lay brothers. Under Abbot John of Kent there is currently much re-building in progress. -Archbishop of MalahautPerilous ForestAbbey-

Furness Cumbria-The noble Abbey of St. Mary at Furness is the stronghold of the Celtic Church in Cumbria. Although it lies in a place of difficult access (on the steep slopes of a ravine, to the north are the undrained swamps and the hills of the Furness Fells, while the only access from the 'mainland' is over the treacherous sands of Morecambe Bay), it suffers like so many other western monasteries at the hands of Irish raiders. Its endowments and privileges are substantial; it owns lands as far away as Ireland and Malahaut, has the right to appoint the missionary bishop for Pomitain and the Long Isles, and exploits the iron deposits of the Furness peninsula as well as breeding sheep. It is wealthy and influential. -Lord of the Red Launds.Perilous ForestAbbey-
Hexham Cumbria-This priory of canons is the heart of Hexhamshire. It is also one of the chief sanctuaries in Cumbria; anyone within a mile-wide area around it (an area marked by crosses at each point of the compass) can claim sanctuary.

Hiap Cumbria-This old dilapidated church in the wastelands was once the remote abbey of Hiap [Shap], of canons regular, dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene. The name comes from the *hiap" (heap) of megaliths which had been part of an ancient stone circle here. With the river Lowther io the east and Hiap Fell summit only three miles to the south, the site combined the facilities and the solitude that are the ideal ingredients for a house of that order of canons, and once there were about twenty canons.--Perilous ForestAbbey-
Jervaulx Cumbria-Substantial Cistercian abbey in Wensleydale, in the broad valley of the river Yore, from which it gets its name. Re-established here in 518, the original community began life in 516 some fifteen miles up the valley at Fors. There lived a small group of monks under the Abbot of Byland and the protection of the Duke of Catterick; their leader, Pedr of Quinciaco was a physician of high repute, having once saved the Duke's life. After several years of hardship there, the Duke granted them this new site; building began immediately and has continued ever since. There are usually about sixteen monks. Wensleydale cheese was invented by the monks here. -Duke of CatterickPerilous ForestAbbey-

Forced by unproductive land and robbers to evacuate their original settlement at Bamoldswick, the community established themselves here in 517 as a daughter house of Fountains. The site had previously been a place of retreat for a group of hermits, some of whom joined the monastic community. Now it has thirty-six monks and many more lay brothers, and the monks are growing rich, largely through skillful management of their flocks of sheep, but are not re-building. An underground passage is believed to link the Abbey to a building in Leeds, and strange noises have been heard on the Abbey grounds late at night.-King of ElmetPerilous ForestAbbey-

Devil's Bridge Cumbria-This beautiful bridge crosses the Lone river near Kirkby Lonsdale. The grandmother of the Wild Damosel tricked the devil into making this beautiful bridge across the river Lon in return for nothing (see Boy King page 88). He had agreed to build it on the condition that he should have the first living thing to cross it; when it was completed she threw a bun across the bridge, a dog ran after it, and the devil was thwarted. His finger-marks can still be seen on the bridge, which lies on the border between the Wastelands and the normal world. ^p While the devil was carrying stones in his apron from a mountain top to build this bridge, the straps broke and the stones went crashing down the mountainside; they formed a heap near the bridge called Hell Gill Beck. Other stones that he dropped in his haste to build the bridge are scattered about the area, forming Devil's Neck-collar, Caserton Fell, and Apron-full-of-Stones. He also dug out a hole nearby and buried a church in it; it is told that the bells of this church can still be heard if one listens with their ear to the ground.--Perilous ForestBridge-

In one, 4 stones, 9 feet high, form a central rectangular setting, encircled by banks 8-15 feet high with a 360 feet diameter crest to crest; a further 4 stones stand at the entrance (which faces east). Some say this was once a magical site that received too much power and was broken up from within. The other has a surrounding ditch (originally 30 feet wide and 4-5 feet deep) with a bank (about 5 feet high) outside and a diameter of about 300 feet; there are 2 standing stones outside the north entrance and another entrance at the southeast. In the center of this site is a trench 8'x3'x10" deep covered by a damaged stone structure; in this trench a human was cremated and hazel was used for fuel. More recently, King Arthur held a meeting of his Round Table and a tournament here during his northern campaign. ^p Nearby are two similar hill-forts: Castlesteads (.25 acres enclosed by 3 concentric banks with 2 ditches between them, and the interior divided into a series of small enclosures), and Yanwath Wood (a D-shaped enclosure protected by 2 banks with a ditch between them covering 1 acre).--Perilous ForestStones-

The two standing stones (10 feet and 8 feet high, with carvings on the larger) form Giant's Grave.--Perilous ForestStones-
Long Meg and her Daughters Cumbria-The stone circle, called the Daughters, is one of Britain's largest - 360 feet in diameter with 65-70 stones, all of which are nearly 10 feet high, all surrounded by a bank. Standing about 60 feet to the southwest, Long Meg is an outlying single stone with carvings on it. Two other outlying stones stand between Long Meg and the main circle. The main circle is said to be a witches' coven turned to stone by a wizard; if anyone can count the stones twice and arrive at the same number, the enchantment will be broken. Anyone trying to move any of the stones will bring on fearsome storms, and if Long Meg herself is ever broken, she will run with blood. ^p Not far away are two other smaller stone circles. One is called Little Meg, and has eleven stones decorated similarly to Long Meg surrounding a barrow. The other is of 31 stones around a mound 45 feet in diameter.--Perilous ForestStones-
Rombold's Moor Cumbria-This area is littered with ancient stones, and contains an unusual number of rock carvings and circles, but barrows are rare, the whole being an ancient cemetery and sacred site. The carvings are on the millstone grit, in two groups, at or above 1050 feet, and follow the edge of the steep slopes around this moorland area. They are circular hollows, some with concentric rings around them, and some joined by meandering lines. There is also a double outline of a swastika. ^p Five circles are in the area, the three most important are: ^p Twelve Apostles Circle - 12 stones set in a bank of earth and small stones, 52 feet in diameter. ^p Grubstones Circle - 20+ stones set edge to edge in a slight bank and in an almost perfect circle 33 feet in diameter. ^p Horncliffe Circle - oval, maximum diameter 43 feet nortly'south, 46+ stones set very close together. ^p There are also 2 cairns and 2 earth circles southeast of the Grubstones. ^p This mysterious moor is now occupied by the Rombold Giant.

RR: The hill of Glastonbury rises above the level plain below, and in flood times the hill becomes an island, known as Ynys Witrin (Isle of Glass). The hill is sacred to the goddess Don, and a maze on the hill, if followed properly, allowed the traveler to enter the Otherworld. After a saint entered the Otherworld and defeated Gwyn Ap Nudd be sprinkling Holy Water around, a chapel to St. Michael was built to protect the unwary from crossing over unaware and to guard against otherworldly spirits entering the mortal realm.^p The establishment Christianity at Glastonbury dates back to the time of Joseph of Arimethea, who built the first church here. He planted his staff on Weary-all hill, and from it the Holy Thorn grew, which blooms at Christmas. Joseph brought the Holy Grail to Glastonbury, and it was kept here until given to the Grail King.

Bayard’s LeapLogresLincolnA wicked witch lives in this village. To be rid of her requires knowledge gained from a gamemaster source. To be successful requires gathering all the commoner’s horses, and then watching to see which one lifts its head when the herd is approached by the volunteer. This is the right steed for the deed. The horse turns out to be an ordinary peasant horse (in legend named Bayard.) The horse cannot carry an armored man. The volunteer then rides to the witch and insults her so that she leaps up behind him. She strikes. Then the rider must stab her, which causes her to dig her nails into the horse. This will cause it to leap 30’ over a pond, throwing the witch into it. She tries to drag the rider down. Whether she does or not, she drowns there. 150 Glory for success.--Boy KingVillage-

Artchain The North-This small monastery has recently been founded on Tiree, independent of the one at Soroby. The founder is Findcham (a Pict) who has recently upset St. Columcille by having Aedh the Black, a notorious murderer and villain, ordained priest. Findcharn was convinced that Aedh was a changed man and persuaded the bishop to ordain Aedh by placing a hand on his head in approval. Columcille has forecast that Aedh will return to his former violent life. He also said that “the right hand which, against law and ecclesiastical rite, Findcharn has laid upon the head of the son of perdition shall soon rot, and after great tortures of pain shall go before him into the earth for burial.” Both these things will happen - Aedh goes on to commit more crimes and Findcharn receives a blow on his hand which turns gangrenous and has to be amputated. --Beyond the WallAbbey-
Candida Casa The North-This is the oldest monastery in Caledonia. It was founded in 397 by St. Ninian as a base from which he could venture forth to spread Christianity among the Picts.

Candida Casa is also a site of pilgrimage which is, in Britain, second only to St. Albans. King Arthur himself came to pay homage at the tomb of St. Ninian on his way back from the Battle of Loch Lomond in 519. St. Fintan is the current Abbot. The name Candida Casa means ‘The Shining Place’ and it is so named because ever since its foundation the humble church has had a white-washed exterior.--Beyond the WallAbbey-

Stirling The North-This small city is one of the most strategically important in the whole of Caledonia. It stands on the south bank of the River Forth at the lowest bridging point of the river. It is also the furthest navigable port on the river for sea-going craft. Stirling guards the border between Lothian and the lands of the Picts. The Caledonian Forest extends down almost to the opposite bank of the river. The Highland Picts regularly swarm out from the cover of the forest to attack Stirling and raid the surrounding lands. The city has been built with defense in mind. It stands in a strong position on a large outcrop of rock. It is further strengthened by the large castle which towers over the city, and by the stout city walls. ^p Standing as it does at the junction of major land and sea routes, Stirling is an important trading center. Picts from the friendly neighboring country of Benoic give the markets a special atmosphere. Goods can be bought here which can not be found at any other market, outside of Pictish lands. The city is also notable for having a church founded by St. Ninian. It is impossible, however, to escape from the fact that Stirling is a frontier town. Visitors find their eyes irresistibly drawn to the north, to the forbidding vastness of the Caledonian Forest. Stirling is ruled very capably by Baron Coel. The garrison is strong and well drilled and the bridge over the Forth is well guarded.

Finally he came to the Bridge of the Cliff, which rose on end, till it stood straight up like a ship’s mast, as soon as anyone put a foot on it. Three times Cuchalainn tried to cross it and thrice he failed. Then anger came into his heart and a magic halo shone round his head and he did his famous feat of the “hero’s salmon leap” and landed in one jump, on the middle of the bridge and then slid down it as it rose on end.

Its construction marked a desire by Rome to fully integrate Southern Caledonia into the empire. Policies changed, however, and within twenty years of being built the wall was abandoned in favor of Hadrian’s Wall.

It stretches thirty-seven miles from Carriden on the Forth to Kilpatrick on the Clyde. ^p The wall consists of a twelve foot high turf rampart. To the north of this is a ditch, the earth from which has been used to form a further protective mound. Forts originally stood every couple of miles along the wall but these have not survived to the present day as they proved to be a rich source of building material. A road runs the length of the wall on its south side. The wall has no value as a defense, but is an interesting curiosity and the people who live nearby are justly proud of it.--Beyond the WallWall-
