Many role-playing games related to Merlin exist in a variety of formats. The first RPGs began shortly after the show first aired in Fall 2008. Keep the Magic Secret opened in late October 2008, and Legends of Pendragon followed in November. RPGs vary in their adherence to canon, as well as their setting, and their pairings.

The first LJ-based RPG to appear was Camelot_RP in December 2008. It was closed, the role-playing posts deleted, and is in process of staring another round as of March 2010.
