"At that time all members of the assembly, along with the proud tyrant, are blinded; such is the protection they find for their country (it was, in fact, its destruction) that those wild Saxons, of accursed name, hated by God and men, should be admitted into the island, like wolves into the folds, in order to repel the northern nations.

So wrote the Briton monk Gildas in the 6th century AD, about what befell the former Roman diocese of Britain in the 5th century, in his pamphlet De Excidio Britanniae (On the Ruin of Britain), one of very few written records of one of the most crucial periods in history, which saw the end of the Roman Empire in Britain and the sowing of the seeds of the modern nations of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany.

Pendragon - The Fall of Roman Britain is a board game about the fall of Roman Britain, from the first large-scale raids of Irish, Pictish and Saxon raiders on the island, to the establishment of successor kingdoms, both Celtic and Germanic. It adapts GMT Games' lauded COIN Series' game system about asymmetrical conflicts to depict late Roman warfare, including raiders, fortifications, and Foederati, and boasts an evolving model of political, military, religious, and economic aspects to depict the mutations of 5th century Britain.
In Pendragon, 1 to 4 players each take the roles of one or more Factions in Britain: the post-Roman army in Britain seeking to maintain imperial order; the landholding aristocracy of the Briton tribes aiming at recovering their independence while preserving their lands and wealth, the Germanic groups looking for new opportunities across the North Sea, and the non-Romanised Celtic peoples from across the Irish Sea or from the cold North eyeing the disintegrating provinces with appetite.
