A battle for Albion begins. The Pendragon Heirs wage war upon each other and in the midst of the chaos, two armies rise; their leaders, Kerrigan and Mordaunt, both vying for Morgana's affections. The Knights of the Round Table must seek out the Hallows before they fall into the wrong hands. A shadow has fallen across the realms. Something dark and ancient has stirred.

[close] Camelot- The land of magic and mystery or so it seems to anyone who read the legends but what of the story behind the legend- was Camelot real? Is it as mystical as the stories say? Well the real Camelot was so much more than men rescuing damsels and fighting evil first they had to claim the throne for themselves. Upon Uther's death, Arthur succeeding to the throne after proving himself the rightful King of Camelot by pulling the sword from the stone. It has been 3 weeks since the young king ascended the throne and the court is doing what they can to control the young King. These factions all have different ambitions and wants but one thing they have in common is they want influence. They want Arthur to be a puppet for them to control- so who does Arthur trust in this climate? His Knights. He set up the Round table as a place where his men had equal power and their advice was counted rather than ignored. He is trying to move away from the Faction system but the factions don't like it and have aliened themselves with some of Camelot's greatest enemies. There is also treachery to be found in Arthur's own family. And what many people will ask of the magic users- well the ban on magic has been lifted but many don't know and many more are killed out of fear and hatred.
