The Dark Ages are over and the wonderful Days of Yore have begun.
Everyone is looking forward to a magnificent coronation of the new King
Arthur, followed by huge amounts of legendary peace and happiness that
will entirely cover the whole of Avalon and there will be purple tights
But there is a rebellion in the land. Brat, the old false king, and
Bloat, a teenage dragon, have vowed to overthrow the lovely wonderful
King Arthur and bring back the Dark Ages. But Morgan le Fey and Sir
Lancelot and a thirsty vampire will save the day.
Or will they?
