Well, now a litle info on the story behind the Quest:


Themes, events and characters of the Arthurian Legend
1. Arthur is a king of Britain who defeated the Saxons and established an empire over Britain, Ireland, Iceland, Norway and Gaul.
2. Characters related to King Arthur: Arthur's father Uther Pendragon, the wizard Merlin, Arthur's wife Guinevere, the sword Excalibur,
3. Arthur was born in Tintagel, his final battle was against Mordred at Camlann and his final rest is in Avalon.
4.  Lancelot and the Holy Grail and the Knights of the Round Table.
5. Arthurian literature thrived during the Middle Ages but waned in the centuries that followed until it experienced a major resurgence in the 19th century. In the 21st century, the legend lives on, not only in literature but also in adaptations for theatre, film, television, comics and other media.





Well, we'll tell you more about it..later-- Hope to see you all there!
