We've played them with the base game without a problem... Really, they all seem worse than the base characters anyway. Keep in mind that the other black character can only discard instead of losing life when FORCED to lose life...

I don't see why you couldn't use both in each game as long as you only use 1 of each colour.

I don't see why not. However, there can always be the issue of some of these powers NOT being meant for the base game (for the travel deck, for the new black/white cards, etc.). As a purist, I would advise against using these alternate knights in the base game. Otherwise, if it means having more fun, then knock yourself out.

Quote:
Ok, here you go. The name of the knight, the name of the knight he replaces (in brackets), and the power.

Sir Bors (Sir Gawain) - Any time White cards are shared, you may participate in the sharing, even if you aren't present on the Quest or place where the sharing occurs.

Sir Lamorak (Sir Palamedes) - Any time you are about to lose 1 Life point, you may choose to discard 2 White cards instead.

Sir Caradoc (Sir Bedivere) - Once during your turn, you may sacrifice 1 Life point to draw 2 White cards.

Sir Geraint (Sir Percival) - During the Progression of Evil you may discard 2 White cards in lieu of doing an Evil Action.

Sir Gareth (Sir Tristan) - Draw 1 White card every time you succesfully complete a Move during you Heroic Action phase.

Sir Owain (Sir Kay) - When fighting a Siege Engine, roll the 8-sided die before playing your cards.

Sir Gaheris (Sir Galahad) - During your turn, you may, as a free Action, take 1 Merlin card from the discard pile for each 3 White cards you discard from your hand.

So, a few good knight, but most of them - nothing special.
