It is time to hit the books, adventurers! While you have been playing your silly roleplaying games, the creators at Exalted Funeral have been putting together a comprehensive history of Medieval England. Monty Python’s Cocurricular Mediaeval Reenactment Programme is by no means a brand new RPG coming out next year that will allow you to design and play games centred around comedic worlds of Monty Python. You do not need to know the Monty Python catalogue to be able to jump in, just a willingness to get involved in strange and hilarious shenanigans!
What should one expect reading this comprehensive history? Well, what you certainly should not expect is a rules-lite game system that will throw you head first into pre-designed adventures. You will certainly not be given an expansive character creation system, including classes such as: The Hermit, The Monarch, The Knight, The Ne’erdowell, and more!
Unlike other RPGs (unlike this book, which is just a simple history textbook), the Heads of Light Entertainment (The Game Master) will have to act as if a NPC character is GMing the game, even when interacting with players. At the start of each game, the Heads of Light Entertainment, or the HoLE, will roll a die in order to determine what persona the GM will need to narrate as through the course of the adventure. Different narrating characters include Jimmy Buzzard, Dino Vercotti, and a penguin!
Should you expect anything else? Well, perhaps one thing… spam. Lots and lots of spam.
Monty Python’s Cocurricular Mediaeval Reenactment Programme comes out in October, 2023! Back your copy here!
