Round Table Texts description

Round Table Texts is an EpistolaryNovel web fiction project started in January 2014. The story is told almost entirely through text message exchanges between various Arthurian characters.

This story provides examples of:

  • Anachronism Stew: It's the stories of King Arthur and the knights of the round table - in text messages!
  • Advertisement:
  • Arthurian Legend: Natch.
  • Foreshadowing: Various deaths and betrayals from earlier tellings of Camelot are alluded to including Morgause's death and Mordred's eventual betrayal of Arthur.
  • Narnia Time: Gawain and Agravaine spend a couple of months in search of the Green Chapel, only to return to Camelot and find that they've been gone almost ten years.
  • No Indoor Voice: Sir Bertilak texts in ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME.
  • The Power of the Sun: Sir Gawain gains strength as the sun rises and loses strength as it sets.
  • Servile Snarker: Sir Kay, Bradley, and pretty much anyone who works in the kitchens at Camelot.
