The story

Troubled thirteen-year-old William tries to avoid his neighbour, Mr. Treguard, during a walk. He thinks he spots a drowning girl under an icy pond, and gets drawn in to medieval times and the reign of King Athelred. The girl was on a quest to ensure the safe hatching of a dragon, and now William must take her place. He must persuade Athelred to send reinforcements to help him against Caedmon, a wizard who wants to destroy the egg.

The game

Your quest is to recover the future king of England from a castle in the middle of the Lake of Wisps. You'll meet Gwendoline, Hordriss and Brother Mace on your route to the lake. Then, you'll need to find a way to cross, pass the gatemaster, and recover the infant King Arthur. In this game, your helmet, shield and lance all count as possessions. They can be lost or forfeit throughout the game, but they will offer various levels of protection for as long as you can keep them.
