The Quest for the Holy Grail – the end of day two

Night is a time when the knights of Ockhamalot are sleeping, resting from the excitement of the finished day. However, night had only just fallen when one knight approached Victor the Virtuous. The knights face was unclear, unlike its voice, which clearly spoke: “Stories of old have made it known to us that there was once a Duke called Theseus, Ruler of Athens, Lord and Governor.” It was the first line from the Knight’s Tale from Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It was the last thing knight Victor would ever hear. However, not long after the mysterious knight had left, another knight appeared. This time Belinda the Black was the unfortunate victim. She never saw the knight with the mirror coming.

The first day proved quite deadly for six of the knights, but a new day did not bring any respite. Anna the Arcane did not prove to be mysterious enough, or she might be just plain unlucky. She was enchanted by a wizard early in the morning. Around the lunchtime Knights games, more blood was shed. It did not only prove a nice lunch activity, but also an excellent time frame for disabling other knights. Marieke the Mischievous, Mike the Malevolent and Cas the Crafty were not prepared for the challenge of the glove. But this was still not enough. Later in the day, Tim the Timid was the last one challenged with a thrown glove. Unfortunately, he did not survive either.

At the end of the second day of the quest, already half the knights have fallen. Was the original keeper of the Grail one of them? The grail may have changed hands today, but it is just as likely that it didn’t. Many of the knights who killed today got revenged. Watch your back, knights, or else you might lose the grail not long after obtaining it…
