Premise

From the introduction:

You are riding through King Arthur's kingdom seeking employment and adventure when your horse throws a shoe. You go to the blacksmith in Camelot and while there visit your old friend, Arthur.

You learn that disaster has befallen the kingdom. Morgan le Fay, the sorceress and Arthur's half-sister, has stolen his magical sword, Excalibur!

She has gathered allies and fled to her dreaded stronghold, Castle Dolorous where she is now plotting Arthur's destruction.

King Arthur asks if you will undertake the quest to return his wondrous weapon to its rightful owner?

You will have aid for many of the bold knights of the Round Table, aided by Merlin's magic, have infiltrated the dread fortress.

Arthur cautions you that this is a very dangerous quest; but the reward for success is equally great.

Arthur gives you one final piece of advice: Merlin may not recognize you. If he seems hostile when you meet, give him a weapon or gold to placate him.
