(Given how unsafe the latter was, they may have a point.) Lancelot is still coming to terms with the fact that that civilized world no longer exists.

''Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey'' is a [=PC=] game released by Salix Games.

The time of Myth/KingArthur is long past, but due to some strange magic, Lancelot and Morgana still walk the streets of Britain. Now they work as investigators, hunting down the many criminals and demonic creatures that prey on humanity. Their latest quarry is a London serial killer called UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper.

Meanwhile, Mary Kelly strives to make ends meet in her Whitechapel home. She hopes for enough rent money to last out the week...and perhaps a cure for those [[DreamingOfThingsToCome strange dreams]] she's been having. Unfortunately, she is soon swept up in Du Lac and Fey's investigation.

!!This game includes the following tropes:

* ActionPet: Saluki sighthounds are pretty cool in RealLife, but they would be hard-pressed to talk to animals or climb ladders like Morgana does. (Of course, she is closer to "unwillingly dependent on human shelter and support" than "pet".)
* BalefulPolymorph: Morgana, famous sorceress and occult expert, was polymorphed into a dog. And she ''hates'' it. Her main goal throughout the game is to find Merlin and get him to reverse his spell.
* HonorBeforeReason: Lancelot, in keeping with his canon portrayal, gives away the money he and Morgana have earned to a person in need. As Morgana points out, they are ''also'' in need- she hasn't eaten for days, and the innkeeper is about to throw them out for lack of payment.
