You were born and raised at the foot of Black Castle. The abandoned stronghold was once the main headquarter of King Arthur. The chambers of this place used to be filled from bottom to top with war spoils, valuable relics and the treasury was flooding with precious ores. Every day the corridors were full of nobles, knights, overseas merchants and all kinds of kingdom’s advisors, strategists and ordinary henchmen.
You don’t remember the glory days of the kingdom. After the murder of the ruler the fortress was drown in chaos. Magicians out of concern for the good of the royal family sealed Black Castle with a mighty magic spell but the angry and greedy mob had already managed to plunder most of the stronghold’s wealth while entrance to the castle was buried for ages during unfortunate battles.
All that was left was a bunch of spider webs and an echo of the past glory. It would stay in this condition if not for local miners who – by accident, found an abandoned shaft that led straight to the Black Castle. Frightened by their discovery, miners ran away and notified the city council which after a short discussion called... You!
To your surprise, the council says there’s still something left in the castle... The legendary and mighty sword – Excalibur which after the assassination of the king was sealed for ages in the stone statue. It’s a symbol of power held by the royal family and it cannot fall into the wrong hands. The order is clear – you must find King Arthur’s sword.
The problem is – rumours travel very quickly and the trace of the ancient sword was already picked up by spies’ form neighbouring country and they’ll possess the knowledge needed to retrieve it any day now. To get the upper hand you have to use the passage discovered by the miners.
Despite the upcoming storm you climb among mountain cliffs until you reach the entrance of the castle. Finally, you could help rebuild your kingdom. Will you obtain the sword?

To była nasza trzecia wizyta w Wyjściu Awaryjnym. Myślałam, że po piramidzie i łodzi podwodnej nic mnie już nie zaskoczy. Bałam się też, że Legenda Miecza będzie najsłabsza. Ach, jakże się pomyliłam. Ten pokój nie zawodzi! Widać w nim ogrom włożonej pracy. Zagadki nie są bardzo trudne, ale niecodzienne i wymagające spostrzegawczości. Krótko mówiąc trzyma poziom. Naprawdę warto odwiedzić także ten pokój :)
