In days of lore, worthy knights sought to become Knights of the Round Table in Camelot. This is the story of Knight Bradwen, a King's illegitimate son, whose half-brother banishes him from his home after the death of their father. Bradwen and his trusty steed set out to regain his lands, his honor and attain his rightful place at the Round Table.

Bradwen's story is told two ways - that of a Christian knight who will seek advice from the likes of Sir Lancelot - or that of a Celtic knight who will be guided by Merlin the Wizard and fairies. You choose which story to play at the beginning of the game by picking a red or white book from its pedestal. Each tale is played completely apart from the other, has different paths and quests, and separate save-game locations.

A historical database is included as a reference tool and includes topics concerning the life of a knight and the history of the times. Your particular story is contained in a journal to which text is added as you progress.

The game features pre-rendered, detailed (but static) backgrounds with animated 3D objects (birds, animals etc.), original music and sound effects. Keyboard keys are used for movement and actions, such as picking up an object or searching a fallen foe. Your mouse is used for menus and conversation. If Bradwen has gained the proper weapon, he will fight enemies automatically simply by clicking on the sword icon. Because a choice can be made whether to talk to or fight a potential foe, you can die if you make the wrong selection.
