True, but again, from a gamer's point of view, what good is a D&D campaign without magic?


You know, I'm not certain that the OP was asking for D&D reasons.

Remember from the point of view of the Grail's authors, magic is at best unreliable, at worst unholy, unless like the Grail itself it draws from The Lord Himself. So on the whole, the Grail quest is supposed to exemplify the triumph of Christian virtues over pagan ways.


Wha-? There's something beyond gaming?

I don't believe that.

Because he wanted to save his father who was shot and mortally wounded by Morgan le Fay.
