King Arthur: Knight’s Tale is a modern retelling of a story from classic Arthurian mythology filtered through tropes of dark fantasy, a twist of traditional tales of chivalry.
You are Sir Mordred, the archenemy of King Arthur, the former dark knight of sinister tales. You killed King Arthur, but on his last breath he overwhelmed you. You are both dead – and yet you both live.
The Lady of the Lake, the ruler of the mystical island of Avalon has brought you back to end a real nightmare. She wants you to go on a chivalrous quest. She wants you to finish what you started. Kill King Arthur – or what became of him after she took her dying ship to Avalon.
The story campaign emphasizes moral choices, which have far-reaching consequences in a rogue-lite structure, adding additional tension to tactical and managerial decisions.
