of King Arthur are the inspiration for this memorable
and magical collection. After Arthur's last battle, he
was borne away by enchantresses to Avalon. England
then fell into the Dark Ages. Gradually, but
persistently, the belief grew that Arthur was not dead
but lived still, ready to return to lead his country
in the hour of its greatest peril.
aid the returning Arthur in his task are the treasures
of the Avalon Inheritance. These tokens of power are
held safe in the keeping of the tree spirits: the
hamadryads of the vast forest which once covered most
of Britain. Although the ancient trees have now
retreated, the spirits that are their essence find a
safe haven on the Isle of Gramarye.
Each figurine of the Inheritance is entrusted with one
of the treasures. They must keep it safe until the day
its power is most needed. They guard it with hidden
symbols and secret runes from the ancient Celtic
alphabet, and the deep magic that is Gramarye itself.
