Camelot story

The coming of Arthur was prophesied years before he was even born. So when Arthur was born he was handed over to Merlin, who placed him with the knight Sir Ector. So Launcelot went to Armorica in France. On the surface, the leaders of the city are pious; the king attends mass regularly, and makes the sign of the cross when he hears bad news. The following day the wife again attempted to seduce Gawain, but he just took two kisses, which he gave to the host returning with a boar's head. She sent word to Launcelot to rescue her from Meleagans, but Meleagans arranged an ambush for the knight that left him horseless. Galahad is also responsible for pulling a sword from a stone that is meant to be pulled by the strongest knight in the world. It was the center of the Kingdom of Logres and in Arthurian legend would become the location of the round table that held knights. Sir Gawain met Sir Ector while riding in the Waste Lands and they exchanged gossip about what others had done on the Quest. Nine months later, Merlin takes Uther's son Arthur. Geraint killed many of them, but they overpowered him and rendered him practically dead. However, when Merlin was brought to the tower he showed the king that the real problem was a large pool underneath the foundation of the tower. Splendidly armored, Arthur charged the Saxons after a prayer to the Virgin Mary.

When Arthur learned of what was happening in his own realm he withdrew from France to return to Dover, where he and his army were met by Modred's forces.

Knights from all over England as well as Europe gathered to his court to receive a place at the fabled Round Table. At this Gawain sprang up and challenged his adversary, but the Green Knight grew mild and told Gawain of all that had happened with the hostess, including Gawain's taking the green lace to save his own life. Thus Logres was the spiritual counterpart of Arthur's material kingdom, Britain. Britain and Logres were only vulnerable from within, through dissent and treachery in Arthur's court.

After Joseph leaves, Agrestes persecutes the Christians, eventually going completely mad and throwing himself into a fire. After that she could never return to Camelot.
