Space Camelot is a mini-arc featured in Pantheons of the NeSiverse and revolves around the character King Arthur and his spaceship named Camelot. He and many of his people left his kingdom of Britannia to travel into space and found a new kingdom, Space Britain, on another planet. Arthur had to first claim his place as king of the British Isles by defeating the eleven rebel kings shortly after his father, Uther Pendragon, died. Arthur had been raised by Sir Ector, at the behest of Merlin the Elder, never knowing his true father. During their seclusion, Arthur had sex with his half-sister Morganna le Fay and she would later give birth to their son, Prince Mordred. Arthur, however, got married to Lady Guinevere of Powys to help bring the Welsh kings into line. He would aid King Hoel and King Bors in their war for Brittany against King Claudas, taking on Sir Bors the Younger as the first of his knights. His own half-brother, Kay, also became a knight though he never showed Arthur the proper respect. Merlin the Elder granted Arthur Excalibur and helped him discover Camelot beneath Great Britain but Merlin was later trapped within Doughnutdelf by his treacherous student Nyneve. Morganna used up her magical island, Avalon, to raise Camelot with the help of the Lady of the Lake and the people travelled into space while Prince Llacheu became king of Britannia. They travelled through the solar system and met with the Jupiterians who were interested in Camelot since they found another similar ship they called The Hopeful. Admiral Ltexi joined them for a while to study their ship and uncover the mysteries. Eventually they left the solar system and attempted settlement on the planet Caledonia, home to the drow, but they were being attacked by fanatic drows under Prelate Seerias and Mordred was kidnapped. King Mark met with the mysterious Boreans, who reveal that they also discovered Camelot and used it long ago, along with several similar ships while working with the High Empire. Mordred is freed but the humans decide to leave Caledonia. Ltexi takes them to Outpost Finagle for fun and recreation where they meet more humans that left Earth with Prince Oberon and would eventually found the Old Republic. King Óenegus and King Caradoc try to undermine Arthur's authority and Caradoc decides to kidnap Guinevere, along with Queen Iseult, to force Arthur's hand.

Exploring the origins of Space Camelot, Merlin the Elder summoned the kings of Britannia to pay homage to the new King Arthur who proved himself by drawing the sword from the stone. However few accepted him still because of his upbringing by the trader, Ector. To support the young Arthur, King Hoel of Brittany and King Bors the Elder of Vannes, arrived in England. After they defeated the Saxons, Arthur, with his first knights - Sir Bedivere, Sir Kay and Sir Bors - turned to conquer Hen Ogledd and its Kings Lot and Urien. King Leodegrance of Powys arranged Arthur to marry his daughter, Lady Guinevere but the wedding is attacked by King Caradoc and King Rience. Rience accidentally killed Leodegrance and submitted defeat for his dishonour. When the lands of King Hoel came under attack, Arthur returned his debt by travelling to France to fend off King Claudas. Once he arrived in Vannes, planning to come up on the rear of Claudas, he met his sister Anna of the White Hands and a new knight, Sir Palamedes[Pan 1]. They travel through Berry, the lands of Claudas, to the Terre Deserte, which was created by King Uther. There they find Sir Bors' brother, Prince Lionel, and a woman, Lady Bertilak, escaping from Claudas' men. Sir Lancelot, the cousin to Lionel and Bors, also escaped and proved himself a valiant warrior before Arthur who knights him on the spot. Sir Bors made an oath to keep Lady Bertilak safe for as long as he should live[Pan 2]. Arthur's group attacked Claudas from the rear. Lancelot proved himself further by stealing horses from the enemy, while Sir Bors wielded the mighty Durdendal in battle. Arthur, from atop his steed Llamrei, was able to capture Claudas while wielding Clarent. They chose to do the knightly thing and took the enemy king captive rather than execute him on the spot[Pan 3].
At camp King Bors went to interrogate King Claudas while Arthur saw his sister, Anna, with a mysterious woman and a man and was worried what they wanted. They then met two enemy knights, Sir Aggravain and Sir Calogrevance, who renounced their wicked king and pledged their loyalty to Arthur so long as he remained a good and noble lord. They heard a cry and found King Bors murdered and King Claudas escaped. Lady Bertilak was on hand and gave them the direction the king went[Pan 4]. The escapee was captured again, by Sirs Bedievere, Kay and Palamedes, and brought to Cornauaille. There King Hoel didn't hesitate and executed Claudas on the spot. As Arthur and his knights make their return to England, they met with Nyneve who pronounced that she would be Merlin the Elder's newest apprentice and travelled with them as they also said goodbye to Anna Pendragon. When they reached Stonehenge, Merlin gave Arthur a sword which he was bid to take to Lake Glaslyn where The Lady of the Lake would bless the sword and name it Excalibur. It turned out that she was actually the fairy god-mother of Lancelot and she gave him a new blade, Arondight[Pan 5].

In 501 A.D., shortly after King Arthur had formed his kingdom of Great Britain, including England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, Merlin the Enchanter wished to pass on the legacy of NeSorcerer to one of his three apprentices. He summons them to him in Doughnutdelf, the city of druids beneath Stonehenge and he has to choose amongst them. Lynne believes she is the most worthy while Morganna le Fay has zero interest. He ultimately chooses his third pupil, however, Nyneve the NeSferatu who is not only the most inspired by narrative mechanics but also Merlin's lover. He passes on the mantle to her and teaches her the NeSpell. However as soon as she is NeSorcer she betrays Merlin and allows her NeSferatu into Doughnutdelf. They slaughter the druids and mages and she casts a spell to lock Merlin within it, forever buried beneath Stonehenge. Some time later Taliesin, who escaped the conflict, summons Lynne, who would change her name to Merlin (known as Merlin the Younger by most), and Morgan and Hermes Trismegistus to discuss founding a new location as a school of magic. They settle on the land of Gaul where they would proceed to construct The Magium[Pan 6].
In 505 A.D. Sir Gawain, King Arthur's nephew, was knighted and joined the Knights of the Round Table. The Lady of the Lake arrived to present a gift to the new knight but another knight, Sir Balin, suddenly hacked of her head. She did not die from the event and would be put back together. Sir Balin claimed she destroyed his family but he was urged to back down by his twin brother, Sir Balan, and arrested[Leg 1].
Raising Space Camelot
To the south-west of England is Tintagel Castle, the birthplace of King Arthur. Sometime after uniting the realm of Great Britain he decides to raise a colossal spacecraft from beneath Britain, which he and Merlin had found many years earlier. He gathers an informal meeting of his friends and family and they discuss his plan to leave Earth and venture into space. Few seem to believe his tale until he confirms that Merlin said it would work, in which case everyone agrees to go. Although Merlin the Younger believes she could work out how to lift the ship into space, the fastest route is to ask Morganna le Fay, Arthur's half-sister, to sacrifice her magical island of Avalon to power the ship. She ultimately agrees after some goading from Merlin the Younger and Guinevere. Guinevere is relieved that Morganna will go with them because she will take her and Arthur's incestuous son, Mordred. Guinevere was worried that Mordred would try to take Britain from her own son, Llacheu, while they were gone - but now Mordred can have his own kingdom somewhere else. Prince Llacheu, meanwhile, gets drunk in Castle Camelot as he celebrates his new-found freedom[Pan 7]. Morganna visits the castle after destroying her island but Arthur reveals that Merlin the Younger fixed the problem. He then agrees to sleep with her, her deepest desire, but then takes it back stating he was just joking. Suddenly upset she wakes up from the small nightmare[Pan 8]. To summon energy for the ship, Morgan must channel her power through Stonehenge, gaining extra energy from The Rift, and power it downwards into the ship below the Earth. Vivane aids in funnelling energy from The Rift to Morgan. High up atop Mount Snowdon, Merlin the Younger is watching for the spacecraft to rise with Shalott the Aes Sidhe witch, Sir Kay and Sir Bedivere. She is concerned about a lake monster and asks the others to watch for it. When the ship emerges from the water, however, they become distracted because it starts to take Ireland up into the sky on its back. Shalott sends a request to Vivane to get Morgan to move the ship aside. Ireland plummets back into the ocean and Shalott psychically requests aid from other Aes Sidhe to reform the rock beneath the land. Back with Morgan they see the ship finally in the sky but Sir Lancelot wonders how they'll ever reach it[Pan 9].
Prince Llacheu, Vivane and Shalott watch from the top of Castle Camelot as the spacecraft, now named Camelot too, sails away from the Earth. Aboard the ship they admire the moon as it comes into view from the conservatory. King Arthur heads to the Command Deck, after doodling obscenities on a stick-man drawing of Sir Bedivere. There he meets Merlin the Younger and Tom a'Lincoln, otherwise known as the Red Rose Knight. Tom is the captain of the ship after his years of service in Arthur's navy on Earth. He demonstrates how the ship works and before Merlin could stop him, Arthur pushes the first planet in the solar system. The ship lurches through space-time, the old warp system pins everyone to the wall. Once it stops they are now in orbit around Mercury[Pan 10].
The Solar System
After being bored of the planet Mercury, they move on to the planet Venus. Sir Lancelot is tasked with exploring the planet with a small 'away team', including his son Sir Galahad, Prince Mordred, Sir The Black Knight, Sir The Faerie Knight. Mordred collects samples for Sir Bedivere to study when they come across a large rock-man. Lancelot attacks to no avail but the man proves a harmless mute. The rock-man then joins the Camelot Crew to venture across the stars and Merlin names him Andy. After an accidental jump back to Earth the ship jumps to Mars where they are confronted by a massive alien fleet[Pan 11]. The fleet of tree-like ships belongs to Jupiter and aboard one of the ships is Chancellor Ctatherine who negotiates peace with Arthur under the agreement that Admiral Ltexi is permitted to check out Camelot so she might compare it with an identical ship under her charge - The Hopeful[Pan 12].
Merlin is charged with showing Ltexi the ship while the Jupiterians introduce Arthur's crew to the inhabitants of the planet following Jupiter - Saturn. Prince Mordred and an away team visits the X-Kryptons in a diplomatic exchange where they meet with Gamma Pans, Phoenix Tram and Omega Wier, the Custodians for the X-Kryptons. After an exchange with them, trouble arrives and the team aid the X-Kryptons against raiders. The raiders are revealed to be G-Kryptons, another civilisation supposedly allied to the X-Kryptons. In the face of this betrayal, Gamma Pans vows vengeance and Sir Lancelot agrees they should aid their new friends[Pan 13]. The crew returns to Camelot to discuss how to proceed with King Arthur and Queen Guinevere. They consider bombarding the planet with the turbo-lasers aboard Camelot but, in the end, Arthur wants to conquer the G-Krypton territory while Sir Bedivere wants to study their technology in tact. Only Mordred disagrees with taking action against the alien civilisation[Pan 14]. Arthur leads the army himself while Gamma Pans brings his own small troop to assist on the right flank. Pans is amazed at the size of Arthur's several hundred strong army, his own troop being just thirty. Pans reveals that his Lightning Amulet is a family heirloom that was dropped upon the planet generations ago and Sir Caelia, a Faerie and mother to The Faerie Knight, is curious about this alien magic. The battle then ensues with Arthur using the light of Excalibur to lead the way to the G-Krypton City. Aboard Camelot, Ltexi speaks to Merlin of the turbo-lasers aboard Camelot which are not aboard The Hopeful and she wonders what forced this change in design. Merlin asks of the other human colonies in the Milky Way Galaxy and Ltexi unveils that once there was a mass blackout that caused all communications to break down amongst the human civilisations and thus the worlds all regressed in technology[Pan 15]. (This is a rumoured version of true events in The Atlantean Saga ((citation needed)).). Arthur rides through the G-Krypton City and declares himself its new ruler. Several weeks later, however, he's quick to relinquish his control after failed attempts at taxation and construction because the Kryptons don't understand economy nor do they understand the concept of castles or churches. To add insult to injury Flannel Bags and Omega Wier, Custodians of the X-Kryptons and G-Kryptons, reveal that Gamma Pans, as the only English speaker, had tricked Arthur and his knights into conquering the G-Kryptons by lying about the identity of the raiders upon Mordred's initial visit to Saturn. They had, in fact, been L-Kryptons and Pans had duped Arthur into breaking a long-term alliance between the X-Kryptons and the G-Kryptons. Upon learning this Arthur vows to hunt down Gamma Pans and is joined by the nearest knights that are able to prepare immediately - Prince Mordred, Sir Lancelot, Sir Kay, Sir Caelia and Sir Tristram. Omega Wier guides them back to the X-Krypton City but Gamma Pans has already fled upon hearing of Arthur's intent[Pan 16].
Arthur and his knights reach The Forsaken Valley of Saturn and, when the sun sets, they are attacked in the ancient Krypton city by dust-ghosts. Only magical weapons are able to dispatch them, making Clarent and Excalibur invaluable. Arthur gives chase through the city upon his horse, Llamrei, and hunts down Gamma Pans and his L-Krypton allies. The L-Kryptons are taken out by the dust-ghosts while Arthur and Omega Wier corner Gamma Pans. Omega Wier snatches the amulet and both Gamma Pans and King Arthur realise that they were both duped by Omega Wier who just wanted the amulet for himself[Pan 17]. Arthur and Gamma Pans flee when Omega Wier conjures a tremendous lightning tornado that rips through the city and destroys the ghosts. The group retreats to the top of the mountain cliff where Sir Caelia forces more aether into the storm to make it stronger and stronger until, finally, the aether in the valley is entirely used up and the tornado vanishes. Gamma Pans decides to join Camelot and leave his homeworld, while his amulet will be studied. After a Council of the Round Table the knights decide to continue through the Solar System[Pan 18].
Camelot arrives at Uranus where Admiral Ltexi introduces them to the Fayrie. Nerifan explains that his people use the aether of Uranus to turn it into transportable goods for sale throughout the NeSiverse using the massive processors of the planet[Pan 19]. They meet the Fayrie King who reveals that his people are dying from impotence caused by the aether on their planet and that their people have grown slack and lazy because their lives are governed and monitored by the hive machine known as Monde. The group split in two, some go with Nerifan to inspect the processors while the others go with the Fayrie King to inspect the machine named Monde[Pan 20]. Atop one of the aether processing plants, Sir Caelia meets with Morganna in the remnant projection of Avalon where they gossip about the potential motherhood of Sir Galahad, who Morgan suggests as being Guinevere but quickly retracts the claim when Caelia suggests that Galahad would thus have a claim to the throne. King Arthur discovers that the machine, Monde, dictates every aspect of the lives of the fayries on Uranus. The king reveals that Neptune is also their world and much the same as Uranus but he would take them there through another Imperium device called the Dream Gate. Sir Galahad tries to introduce himself to Admiral Ltexi, whom he has come to strongly admire, after some encouragement from his father. They then travel to Camelot so they could jump to Neptune[Pan 21]. A spaceboat collects Sir Caelia and Morganna. Caelia explains the history of her husband marrying a woman from the east to save her from a sacrifice, from which adulterous marriage came The Black Knight. She actually met Tom when he was half-dead in Greenland. Meanwhile Arthur is taken to see the derelict spaceship, which looms in the skies above Neptune and appears like a magical snowflake[Pan 22]. While Arthur discusses the mysterious origins of the snowflake, being a ship made entire of magic and actually originating from Earth, Gamma Pans is in The Observatory where he is brought into a colonisation group consisting of King Mark, Queen Iseult, Sir Gawain and Sir Greene Knight. Their aim is to prepare for the upcoming colonisation of an alien world. When Arthur returns to Camelot, after a brief incident with Sir Robin in a shuttlecraft when he nearly killed himself, Tom a'Lincoln reveals the history taught to him by Sir Caelia involving the snowflake ship - that is was the ship of an Aes Sidhe named Prince Oberon who left Earth with his human wife. Sir Caelia doesn't want to disturb the ship on the grounds that it is a monument to her peoples' history, so they leave the ship alone. Admiral Ltexi intended to leave the ship and return to her own vessel but Arthur, too impatient, makes the jump before she can get off. They leave the Solar System, deciding to skip Pluto as they mistakenly believe it's just another boring rock[Pan 23].
The humans established a colony on the planet Caledonia but they found they must share the world with the native drow[Pan 24]. The Greene Knight revealed himself to be of the Nacaal people and not a human at all, while King Mark and Queen Iseult have trouble keeping their domestric problems to themselves due to the presence of Sir Tristram - with whom Iseult had had an affair[Pan 25]. Some drow were unhappy with the invading colonisers and, guided by their faith in their moon god Lloth, they attacked the humans and kidnapped Prince Mordred. He was taken, via a floating stone, to Llurth Caridwen where he met the crazy leader of the drow faction named Prelate Seerias[Pan 24]. Camelot descended to the atmosphere of the planet where it opened fire upon the world below by the vengeful mother, Morganna le Fay, of Prince Mordred. Prelate Seerias recognised the ship and declared it to be the possession of other alien settlers of Caledonia[Pan 25]. A small group, led by Sir Galahad, go on a diplomatic mission to the Eborren drow to ally against Prelate Seerias. On the trip the problems of Iseult, Mark, Tristram and Isolde became increasingly apparent before Galahad and Sir Palamedes. In the town they met with Minister Lysse who suggested that they meet with the original owners of Camelot and took them to the Boreans[Pan 26].
In an attempt to stop Morganna, Admiral Ltexi led a group to the auxillary command centre to bypass the command deck. She discovered, however, that Camelot has no computer interfaces, unlike those installed on her own ship, The Hopeful. Tom a'Lincoln was almost claimed by the ship's Organic Intelligence systems and shortly after Merlin the Younger tried to sacrifice herself to the ship before being stopped by Ltexi. En route to Hyperborea, Minister Lysse is accidentally killed by her own flying stone. Sir Galahad's group met with the Boreans and three of them agreed to aid the humans[Pan 27]. When the Boreans saw Camelot they revealed that they had bought a similar vessel from the High Empire, which was using the ships to transport their hedrons to the planet Earth. They were forced to leave the planet when the Atlanteans greed for power almost destroyed the world. When on the mountain Sir Tristram and Sir Palamedes made a valiant effort to save the prince but they were all almost killed by Prelate Seerias after she saw the necromantic powers of Isolde. A shot from Camelot finally hit its mark and vaporised Seerias[Pan 28].
Finagle (Pantheons of the NeSiverse)
Instead of finding the humans a new world to colonise, Admiral Ltexi took them to Outpost Finagle - a place of pleasures for all species of the Multiverse. Sir Palamedes was joined by a young drow boy that left Caledonia to explore the stars aboard Camelot and became the knight's squire. King Arthur discovered the casino and showed he had an incredible talent for gambling. In the outpost's arena, three Knights of the Round Table were fighting but died in combat. Sir Isolde of the White Hands decided she would cheat and brought the three of them back to life to continue fighting[Pan 29]. Sir Palamedes and Newrias entered the religious district of the outpost but were stopped by a dorf named Egnarts who worked as a Witch-Warden to keep magic-users out of the district. Newrias convinced the dorf to let them through but he was also going through his drow awakening and remembered something of his past lives as Dhaeriend do'Ziikin[Pan 30]. After an argument about Sir Tristram's prior relationship with Queen Iseult, he entered the arena in order to prove himself to Isolde. In the All-You-Can-Eat-Bakery of the outpost, several kings of Space Britain were in debate about King Arthur's leadership. Princess Guinevak entered the idea of attacking Arthur through his wife, her sister, into the mind of King Caradoc. The Black Knight was in the casino with Andy, the rockman, when her mother arrived to chastise Anglia for avoiding her mother. Prester John, Anglia's grandfather, appeared as an apparition to watch the death of Anglitora, who died in her daughter's arms. Meanwhile, Sir Caelia sent several knights on silly quests in the name of holiness, and even sent Sir Palamedes on a quest to capture the underwear of Morganna le Fay[Pan 31].
Sir Bedivere got himself and Sir Kay in trouble with a group of giants by insulting their penis size and were forced to flee around the outpost. Sir Lancelot took his son, Sir Galahad, to a strip club and avoided all questions relating to Galahad's mother. However the strip club turned out to be a male strip club, much to the horror of Lancelot and Galahad. Morganna managed to defend herself against Sir Palamedes attempt for her knickers after King Arthur was kicked out of the casino for winning too much. The Red Rose Knight and The Greene Knight discover humans aboard the outpost and learn that humanity already colonised space led by the fairy Oberon and now reside in the Old Republic. The Old Republic, its capital being Coruscant, was under threat from the Dread Masters of the Sith Empire. When King Arthur learnt this, Queen Guinevere convinced him it would be a good holy quest for the Knights of the Round Table. Guinevere, and Queen Iseult, are then captured by King Caradoc. In the arena, Sir Tristram was unexpectedly killed by the rancor but, upon his dying breath, Isolde used her powers to restore him to life at the expense of her own[Pan 32].
In her past, Isolde was daughter of King Hoel of Britanny but was led to the White Hands, a coven of witches with necromancy powers, by her Aunt Anna. She was drained of blood constantly by the NeSferatu Nyneve as part of the ritual and power-gaining process. When King Hoel learnt of the witches he, and Templars, arrived to slay the witches and the NeSferatu. They killed Anna Pendragon and the king was about to kill his daughter but Sir Tristram, Isolde's husband, saved her and slew her father. They retreated to the court of King Arthur where they were both made knights of the round table[Pan 32].
Finagle (Legends of the NeSiverse)
King Caradoc took his hostages, Queen Iseult and Queen Guinevere, to the Tower of Observance but was followed by several knights, led by Sir Lancelot. The knights brave the lift and bypass the many cats in the tower to reach Caradoc. Lancelot killed the king with Arondight and confessed he could never allow harm to befall Guinevere[Leg 2]. In the arena, Sir Tristram cannot do anything but watch as his wife dies before him - trapped by the arena walls. Sirs Aggravain and Calogrevance arrived and, with medical droids, whisked Sir Isolde to the Medical Wing of Outpost Finagle. When they reached the medical wing, they found that The Black Knight was already there with her dead mother's body, though they cannot see the apparition of Prester John. King Arthur, in his hotel room, received many reports of goings-on before he was outraged by the news that Morganna le Fay had sabotaged his cheese farm aboard Camelot[Leg 3].
The Sith Empire
Before embarking on their quest to save the Old Republic, the knights decide to take a break with a racing competition. Knights of the Round Table took to spacefighters and flew them in a circuit to the finish line. Sir Lancelot took the lead initially, piloting Berić, while Sir Bedivere crashed and burned early in the asteroid field. The race took them along the River Split on the planet Tress before they had to circle the husk world of Trogdor. On the route back Sir Lancelot crashed into Sir Bedivere and lost the race. Sir Gawain therefore won the race in his ship Gringolet, Sir Aggravain second and Sir Bors, in his ship named by everyone else as The Dinner Plate, came third. After they visited Coruscant[Leg 4], Camelot arrived at the planet Orinoco Flow where the Dread Fortress would be revealed for just a month as the ocean, forever flowing around the planet in a single direction, would reach its end before, one month later, the front waves would come crashing down again. King Arthur initially guided the landing of knights, in spaceboats, from the Command Deck before he took his own spaceboat to join the fray personally. He had hired a soothsayer to help him make predictions and strategies about the battle, though he constantly called the man a witch[Leg 5]. Sir Robin Dagonet is fired upon but miraculously survived before he fainted. Sir Caelia faced off against one of the Dread Masters with her magic and used the legendary sword of Sir Palamedes, Harpē, to kill him. Upon death the Dread Master exploded his own soul to take out any enemies in the vicinity. The Black Knight and The Greene Knight pushed inside the Dread Fortress but Anglia was constantly harassed by the apparition of her grandfather, Prester John[Leg 6]. The Greene Knight was gravely wounded by a Dread Master but he was killed by The Faerie Knight and his magic, while Anglia tried to stem the flow of blood. Outside, Sir Caelia used her magic to send Sir Aggravain into the sky to surprise another Dread Master and take his head before landing on the windscreen of King Arthur's incoming spaceboat. The spaceboat deposited Morganna le Fay upon the roof of the Dread Fortress where she killed another Dread Master single-handedly[Leg 7]. Another Dread Master appeared before The Black Knight, forcing her to abandon her attempt to save The Greene Knight. However they were saved as King Arthur and his final wave arrived so Merlin the Younger could tend to The Greene Knight and, wielding Excalibur, Arthur tackled the Dread Master. The Dread Master's aura, however, caused Arthur to become fatigued. Prince Mordred moved in for the kill but The Black Knight lost her arm to the evil master and, upon death, the Dread Master's soul exploded and burnt Prince Mordred's face[Leg 8]. Arthur led the remaining knights deep into the Dread Fortress, guided by the Soothsayer. The Soothsayer helped Arthur slay the last Dread Master easily with Excalibur before they eventually found the Sith Emperor himself. However the emperor seemed to die instantly, as did the Soothsayer. The Soothsayer had actually killed himself and transferred his consciousness over to the body of the Sith Emperor. He revealed he just wanted to open a donkey sanctuary with the emperor's resources and decided to travel to Earth to build it. The knights declared victory[Leg 9].
The Red Castle
King Arthur was invited to the Galaxies Opera House on Coruscant to celebrate their victory over the Sith Empire. As part of the security procedures the small group with Arthur had to go through a DNA scanner. When Sir Galahad went through he found an unexpected surprise. Though Sir Lancelot was confirmed as his father, it confirmed Queen Guinevere as his mother. Aboard Camelot, Merlin the Younger and Newrias were attending to the injured. Sir Tristram was desperate for his wife to receive care, who had been gravely ill since Leg Post 7, but Merlin was too busy[Leg 10]. Meanwhile, three knights, Sir Gawain, Sir Sagramore and Sir Percival, have been sent down to the planet Algernon to explore the Perce Forest. Through a mysterious mist they hear the giggling of a girl. Following the noise they stumbled upon The Red Castle and decide to spend the night there instead of in the mist. The castle had two pillars of aether either side of the door and once inside Gawain is left alone in the parlour[Leg 11]. He heard something strange and is then startled when a girl, named Sebile, appeared at the window. She revealed that he is in her house and he found himself apologising. He suspects her to be a witch when she appeared inside and opened the door with magic to let Sir Percival back inside. Gawain then introduced her to Sagramore in the kitchen and she confessed she is very lonely and she seemed ignorant of society. She closed the door again and didn't want them to ever leave[Leg 12].
Back on Camelot, Merlin and Newrias are still treating the injured when Morganna le Fay arrived. She was annoyed that Sir Tristram kept bothering her. She bantered with Newrias and wished they could have stayed on Caledonia for its matriarchal society. She decided it might be worth trying to heal Isolde with alderwood, which cures magical ailments rather than biological ones[Leg 13]. In The Red Castle, the knights discovered that they are captives of Sebile but decided to spend the night anyway. Sir Gawain was about to sleep when Sebile appeared in his room and offered him wealth, power, sex and herself through means of a mindscape illusion but he rejected all. She revealed Percival did likewise but she had one more knight to tempt. He and Percival rushed to Sagramore's room where they found he had gotten into Sebile's bed without knowing she was there. Scandal looming, Sagramore offered to marry her. Gawain knew this was a trick but Percival found it a grand plan[Leg 14]. Sebile took them into a mindscape with a priest where they were then married. She revealed her curse was now broken and the Red Castle renewed itself before their eyes. Though she tricked Sagramore she vowed she would now be a good and faithful wife and not an evil witch. As his religion involved praying to ancestors, she offered him her ancestral magical Fire Ring[Leg 15].
King Arthur dreams of the Holy Grail and announced to the Knights of the Round Table that this was the ultimate quest. He believed the grail to be on Algernon and that it would grant immortality to the finder and prosperity to Space Britain. Sir Sagramore wanted Sebile to help him find the grail with her knowledge of Algernon but first she wanted to seek out the witches of Space Britain. She found Merlin in the hospital and helped use the alderwood to heal Isolde of the White Hands[Leg 16]. On Terra Flux, Sir Menw is seeking information on Oberon, who first left Earth centuries ago, on behalf of Windos ap Nudd, king of Albion. Lord Jocasta, the Æon Knight in charge of the Æon Central Librarium, tells the story of how Oberon sided with Perfect Darkness of the ancient Aos Sí to defeat the ancient Infinite Celestium and gives the details for Oberon's Tomb. In Albion, Vivane visits the king and his wife, Creiddylad. In the past a man named Gwythyr had wanted Creiddylad as his own wife so Cordelia, Creiddylad's sister, took her place and married Gwythyr, all the while Gwythyr believed he had married Creiddylad. Vivane also revealed that she is the mother to Morganna le Fay. Their meeting was interrupted by a message in magical fire from Menw that he had found the tomb[Leg 17]. Sir Galahad went to Morganna le Fay to ask about the possibility of Queen Guinevere being his mother. She affirmed that his mother was actually an Aes Sidhe Witch of Albion, who shapeshifted into Guinevere to sleep with Lancelot - giving the result that he is the son of Lancelot and Guinevere, but not the Queen of Space Britain. When he left, Sebile, Merlin and Isolde arrived[Leg 18].
Sir Lanval sought out the secret Pavilion of The Lady where he encountered The Lady and her handmaidens. He must keep her a secret from all, despite his love for her[Leg 19]. On his way back from her he found newly formed coven of witches plotting against Sir Lancelot and so he followed them. On the way he met Sir Tristram who didn't know his wife, Isolde, was well again and they went to the Command Deck where they learnt the secret of Sir Lancelot and the Aes Sidhe Witch when the witches told Arthur and Guinevere. Guinevere is enraged and ordered Lancelot back to Camelot. On Coruscant Sir Menw visited the Terran Mausoleum and managed to find the tomb of Prince Oberon and his wife, Titania[Leg 20]. Sir Lancelot is found guilty and banished from Space Britain but he resolved to find the Holy Grail himself and restore his honour. In the Red Castle several knights, led by Prince Lionel and Sir Bors, conspire to find the Holy Grail and give it to Lancelot to restore him. Elsewhere in the Red Castle Sir Galahad is depressed but declared that his loyalty was ultimately to the king and queen, which earnt him the respect of Sir Aggravain[Leg 21].
Quest for the Holy Grail
With many knights splintered in their loyalties, Arthur required new knights for the round table. At the suggestion of Sir Bedivere, though not without reservations, King Arthur released Sir Balin from imprisonment. He was imprisoned for attempting to kill The Lady of the Lake, though he had been unsuccessful. Balin's twin brother, Sir Balan, was there to meet him when he came out[Leg 1]. On Algernon Queen Iseult was directing building efforts in the Waterfall District with The Green Knight helping the farmers. Lady Clare Bertilak wants her own castle, as grand as The Red Castle of Lady Sebile. Elsewhere, Sir Lile Morians had gone ahead of the other Knights of the Round Table with the aim of seeking the Holy Grail. She was met, however, by Sir Flannedrius who wanted to challenge her to claim the Cursed Sword. Morians defeated and slew Flannedrius and buried her body[Leg 22]. On Camelot Anglia FitzLincoln, the Black Knight, goes to Prince Mordred's room where they lay together. On Algernon the Knights of the Round Table awake to quest but Sir Marhaus, a woman-hater, is enraged that Sir Lile Morians left already. He travelled with Sirs Gawain and Galahad and they find the Three Rivers split where they find three mysterious women. They must each chose a lady to travel with and seek adventure, which Galahad believed would take them to the grail. On Camelot Sir Menw returned from Terra Flux seeking advice from Sir Caelia. Sir Lanval agreed to take him to Algernon where Sir Caelia would be waiting[Leg 23]. Sir Tristram finally met his wife, Sir Isolde, in their chambers and she reveals that they are now connected in life and death so that if one of them died so too would the other. On Algernon King Rience was overseeing construction of New Wales Castle with King Óenegus and Princess Guinevak. Guinevak thought they should kidnap Queen Guinevere again and force Sir Lancelot to save her, therefore furthering the scandal. Sir Menw and Sir Lanval arrived at the Waterfall District and while Lanval went to help Queen Iseult, Menw went to find Sir Caelia[Leg 24].
