King Uther is dying. The Council of Elders must decide who will rule Caerleon. Why do they not see? - it must be Arthur
The nation of Caerleon is in the midst of a power vacuum. Vibiana knows who should be King... but there are others who are out to snatch power for themselves. Arthur, Cai, Vibiana and young Bem all have their part to play. Whoever finds the missing Torc is the rightful ruler. Will Arthur find the Torc and claim his rightful place as King and ruler or will the evil Morcanta's schemes succeed?
