A dark knights tale, 15 Sept. 2011
This is a well crafted tale of knightly misadventure, set during the Hundred Years war. You can feel every blow of sword and pole-arm through the realism of the action sequences.
In this story, you follow Jake Savage as he struggles with his personal standards and morality in a time and place filled with violence and violation. He acts with honour, and loyalty; supporting his dark-souled comrades in their efforts to take a French strong-hold and find sustenance for another night. Standing in their way is a mysterious knightly figure, standing silent in defence of his lady. As the hardened English men-at-arms advance on their foe, the calls from the defiant lady seem cruel and taunting, as she apparently offers herself to the victor.
The black knight seems invincible, and the English advances are smoothly dispatched.
Read this short by Mark Lord and discover how chivalry can still be found, even in the darkest of times.
