    great game I used to play (but didnt finish) when I was little.


    The myth of arthur and camelot. I read about it in the manual. Turns out it is after 500 AD or something. I' d imagine it'd be far far older than that considering how vague it is.

    I mean in 500 AD we knew what color the emperor's underwear was, let alone the empress. We knew every detail of the byzantine empire. It was like modern times.

    In england 500 AD they were savages banging themselves on the head creating "myths".

    It's amazing the difference in scale. Must be why they stole the marbles.

    I'd imagine something Greek, in order to be so vague as the arthur myth (which is quite good, considering) would need to be something in the vicinity of 10.000 years before Christ in order to be this vague.

    Something like the thracians. In north eastern Greece.
    Greeks feared noone because they considered everyone a savage. And a savage is not to be feared but tamed or killed. Or assimilated.

    But there was only one type of savage people (some say half-greeks) that the Greeks did fear and did everything not to anger them. The Thracians.

    A mystery encircles these ancient people. Strange rituals, fueled by (what today we call) psychedelic drugs.
    A savage reverence

      So you're saying you lost your marbles and were gossiping about the color of the emperor's panties?

              A Joust ... the holy land ... so I guess the game is incorrectly placed in a high medieval setting (i.e. in accordance with the narrative of Geoffrey of Monmouth),
              instead of a more correct setting during the waning days of the western roman empire (where the Basileia ton Romaion (or byzantine empire, as we call it today) still was an important power)

                  I remember reading Prince Valiant way back in the day.
                  No, I did not steal that from somebody on Something Awful.

                    Indeed. For example jousting was seeing as a corrupted franscish vice by the byzantines. Doing something lethal and war - like, for game. It was discarded as bullsh!t practise.
                    And yes the empire at that time was giving pain left and right to arabs, latins, mongols. Whoever. latins were destroyed anyway (by the german tribes)
