I'll start this thread with some information on my own planned project, The Holy Chalice of Amun. In bygone days there lived a King of Nubia who pleased the gods through his righteousness and piety, so the Creator Amun rewarded him with this sacred chalice which would grant all his people prosperity and good health so long as it stayed in their hands. Since then the Holy Grail of Amun’s fame has spread across the world, reaching as far north as the isles of Britain. When the covetous Celtic King Arthur and his warriors travel down to Nubia and steal the Chalice, its guardian Neith must pry it back from their clutches for the good of her kingdom. At least she believes so until she learns that Arthur and his people need the chalice's powers as much as anyone else. Not only does Neith find herself torn between her country and that of a man she comes to love, she must also contend with Arthur's jealous sorceress Morgana, who will stop at nothing to prevent her destiny from coming to fruition. Cast of Characters Neith - A Nubian warrior woman tasked with guarding the Holy Chalice of Amun. Fated to become Queen Guinevere of Arthurian legend. Kemsit - Neith's best friend and fellow Guardian of the Chalice. I think she may die at some point in the story, either in the first scene or at the end of the first act. Meri - An old male Nubian mage who accompanies Neith on her quest to recover the Chalice from Arthur's people. Fated to become Merlin. Arthur - A Celtic chieftain of Camelot who has the Chalice stolen so he can protect his people from the effects of an encroaching ice age. Ultimately falls in love with Neith. Lancelot - Arthur's champion warrior who steals the Chalice for him. Morgana - A sorceress of mixed African and Celtic ancestry who works for Arthur and has a secret crush on him. When a relationship builds between Arthur and Neith, Morgana grows jealous and becomes the novel's main antagonist.
