From the book:
Merrie England is a setting that allows you to play in medieval England, but an England where Robin Hood roams the forests, where evil magicians cast spells on their enemies, where great dragons terrorise the land and where the fairy folk still rule Fair Elfland.
This book contains character generation for Norman, Saxon, Jewish, Welsh, Cornish, Scottish, Irish, Fairy, Saracen or Moor player characters and has descriptions and rules for magic use and religions, as well as medieval background, scenario hooks and historical figures.
Revel in the mysteries of Morris Dancing, crusade against the heathen, uncover the secrets of the Masons, oppose the unjust taxes of your absent king, or simply abuse your authority over peasants and vassals. Your imagination is the only limit!
This book requires the RuneQuest rulebook (any edition), available from Mongoose Publishing.
