Vengeance of Excalibur Description

Vengeance of Excalibur is a 1991 RPG style computer game developed by Synergistic Software and distributed by Virgin Games. It acts as a sequel for Synergistic previous title Spirit of Excalibur, and while it draws its basic background elements from arthurian lore, Vengeance of Excalibur is set in what is actual Spain, in a time period about five centuries later than its predecessor. As an RPG game Vengeance of Excalibur puts the player in control of a small team of "Knights of the Round Table" who will seek out in Spain for the stolen items of the treasure of Camelot.

While Vengeance of Excalibur is set around year 1000 a.d. the story seems to start where Spirit of Excalibur left off: Britain has been reunited under a unique king, Constantine, who is king Arthur's successor and peacefully rules over the realm. However during one particularly stormy night a lone knight is admitted to Camelot, where he is able to slip past the guards, enter the treasure room and steal all the gold and the precious relics stored there, including Arthur's mythicl sword Excalibur and the newly recovered Holy Grail. He is also able to kidnap Nineve, the court's sorceress whose magic is second in power only to Merlin himself. A witness reveals that the knight, who turns out to be the rogue sir Bruse sans pitie, was in the company of a shadowy creature who has cast a spell against king Constantine, turning him into a statue. This otherwordly creature is known as the Shadowmaster, a demon lord that was apparently summoned by Morgan le Fay before she was defeated in Spirit of Excalibur. Since the treasures of Camelot have been stolen, Britain has been struck by all sort of plagues and the Knights of the Round Table have formed small teams in order to search the land and find a solution to the mystery. A group of such knights is about to leave for the Iberian peninsula from Portsmouth: some evidence points out that sir Breuse may have left for Spain, a country torn by the war between the Christian kingdoms of the north and the Muslim ones of the south, not to mention internal strife between the Christians themselves and plagued as well by groups of bandits and Basques who are hostile to all the strangers. The player will be in control of this above mentioned group of knights and has the task of saving Britain by retrieving the stolen items and defeating the Shadowmaster to undo all its evil magic.
