The Treasures of Britain
The Treasures of Britain according to legend are a collection of mystical items Arthur's fabled sword Excalibur was one of the Treasures. Each has a specific purpose but used with others they are capable of releasing incredible power.
The Treasures were created by the Ancients, mystic priests who preceded even the Druids, as a direct means of communicating with the gods. For centuries the Druids guarded the Treasures which were dispersed throughout Britain for safe keeping. The Druids led in later years by Merlin sought to rediscover the lost lore that would release the full power of the Treasures and return the ancient gods to Earth.
Stories tell of a Roman legion which was mysteriously lost in the mist of the bleak winter moorland in this region never to be seen again.
This fable combines the two legends and suggests what might have happened.................
Word came to the Roman fort at Eboracum (now York) of a fabled treasure held by a mysterious sect of warrior priests two days hard march to the North West. Other reports had always proved false but the fort commander was concerned that the treasure whether real or not would become a focal point for a rebellion. He dispatched a Legion to dissipate the priests and capture the treasure.
Word of the Legion's advance reached the priests who had vowed to defend the treasure to the last. They were aware however of being no match for the disciplined force of a full Roman Legion the most powerful fighting force the World had ever seen. Amongst the priests however was an old Druid of great learning who had long studied the lore of the Ancients.
As the Legion approached he summoned an awesome force. The Legion in dismay could only watch, transfixed as the Earth shook and the very fabric of time was ripped asunder.
