Example text

Dou­ble you,” Menw, one of the Prince's guards, said, then rolled his own stone. It rat­tled over the board's ridges and set­tled on a one. He had on­ly need­ed a two to win so now he scooped his peb­bles off the board and cursed. Liges­sac sent Menw to fetch his purse to pay his win­nings, then told me how Uther had sum­moned Arthur from Ar­mor­ica to help de­feat a great army of Sax­ons that had thrust deep in­to our land. Arthur had brought his war­riors, Liges­sac said, but none of his fa­mous hors­es for the sum­mons had been ur­gent and there had been no time to find enough ships for both men and hors­es.

The first snow will fall very soon. And there was snow when Arthur's tale be­gan. It was a life­time ago, in the last year of High King Uther's reign. That year, as the Ro­mans used to reck­on time, was 1233 years af­ter the found­ing of their city, though we in Britain usu­al­ly date our years from the Black Year which was when the Ro­mans cut down the Druids on Ynys Mon. By that reck­on­ing Arthur's sto­ry be­gins in the year 420, though San­sum, may God bless him, num­bers our era from the date of our Lord Je­sus Christ's birth which he be­lieves hap­pened 480 win­ters be­fore these things be­gan.

What hap­pened in­side the tow­er was a mys­tery to ev­ery­one but Mer­lin, Mor­gan and Nimue and none of those three would ev­er tell, though the coun­try peo­ple, who could see Mer­lin's Tow­er for miles around, swore it was crammed with trea­sures tak­en from the grave mounds of the Old Peo­ple. The chief of Mor­dred's guard was a Chris­tian named Liges­sac, a tall, thin, greedy man whose great skill was with the bow.
