The brightly glowing sword rising slowly out of the water on the title page sets the scene for the adventure-war game Excalibur. It transports you back to the days of Arthurian legend and the small kingdom called Camelot.

"It's good to be King" - at least, according to Mel Brooks in "History of the World, Part I". But in the good old days of swords and chivalry, sovereignty meant more than just banquets, royal weddings, and pressing the flesh with the simple folk.
