After a prologue establishing ComicBook/MadameXanadu's and ComicBook/{{Etrigan}}'s roles in the last days of KingArthur, the story skips forward a few centuries. Xanadu and Jason o' the Blood visit a small village in Europe, where they meet VandalSavage, [[SevenSoldiers the Shining Knight]], a Saracen inventor named Al Jabr and an Amazon warrior named Exoristos. They join forces when the Questing Queen and her [[TheHorde horde]] attacks the village on its way to sack the nearby city of Alba Sarum. In defending the village, they meet the Horsewoman, who has been protecting it, and afterwards embark on other quests together; some for the nobility of assisting those in need, some for profit, and some for reasons all their own.

Added DiffLines:

* AgainstMyReligion: The Muslim scientist Al-Jabr is sent to Hell thanks to yet another of Etrigan's betrayals. His version of Hell is a vast desert with a blazing sun, and the only thing available to quench his thirst is a canteen full of alcohol... which is, of course, against his religion.

Added DiffLines:

* SeriousBusiness: In Hell, rhyming is ''very important''. Lucifer even chides Etrigan for flubbing a simple rhyme. It's also mentioned there are also prose demons, lyrical demons and "fell editors".
