The plague of Red Death and the spreading Wyrdness are not helping. Time is running out and multiple factions have their own plan for the future of the island…

Explore the dark world of Tainted Grail
The mysterious and complex story of Tainted Grail spans over 1,000 years, from the moment King Arthur led the people of the Homelands to the shores of Avalon. Journey through Avalon to uncover the dark secrets behind the Age of Conquest, Fore-Dwellers, and the Wyrdness itself.
The game is inspired by and based on the lore of the board game of the same name, which was created by one of Poland's best fantasy writers - Krzysztof Piskorski.

During your journey, you’ll encounter simple commoners, battle-worn soldiers, and even gods of old in need of your assistance. You’ll have to make choices in a world in which there are no good answers, but your decisions matter and your choices are respected.
