The Quest for the Holy Grail – Victory for Ockhamalot

The Quest for the Holy Grail – Victory for Ockhamalot

Only two people remained in the Quest for the Holy Grail. But that wouldn’t last long. Bob the Bold and Rianne the Remorseless were equals in this Quest. Both had killed before and both did not shy away from the idea of doing it again. But only one could win. It was not a fair battle. Bob the Bold crept up to Rianne when she was not paying attention for a second. He took her by surprise and that would prove to be fatal. Only Bob survived. He got the Grail from Rianne. The founder of Ockhamalot had regained the Grail only that morning when she killed Maura. But the control of the knights had gotten out of her hands and Bob – knowing that it had to be Rianne who was in possession of the Grail – could not think of rest before the Grail was in his hands. He won the Quest, but at a terrible cost. Twenty one knights lost their lives in less than two weeks.

Having started in the hands of Belinda the Black (Knight), the Grail was passed onto Lieke the Lovely when the Quest had barely started. The lovely knight would not commit another murder, she was of too lovely character to continue the killing after she had obtained the Grail. She could not hold on to the much desired object; Maura the Mighty took it from her after two days. Maura held on to the Grail for quite a while and tried to take out as many people that could endanger it – she killed more knights then any of the others. But it was not enough. Near the end of the Quest, when she let down her guard for just a second, Rianne the Remorseless proved worthy of her name and took the Grail from the mighty knight. The rest of it went down in history. Bob the Bold obtained the grail and the people of Ockhamalot celebrated.

The Grail brought prosperity to the town. Even when its founder Rianne was gone, the town flourished and grew more and more. Many years in the future, it was the birthplace of a man called William, who would be known for his invention of Ockham’s razor. Which in turn inspired a group of students five years ago to found an association by the same name. Ockhamalot came full circle. Thanks to the 21 knights that gave their lives, and the one that prevailed.
