Lancelot is the celebrated folk knight in the Arthurian legend of English Camelot, a treasured knight whose controversial reputation belies a great daring nature and rumored fantasy wisdom.

Mordred is the illegitimate son of Arthur in the same legend who betrays Arthur and seeks to usurp Camelot. Mordred is valiant but cruel and is rumored to command authority over individualism ambition.

Both Lancelot and Mordred represent governance romance, and Mordred's sinister qualities can be paired nicely with Lancelot's fantasy obsession.

In the age of video games, dominion-themed avatar-rich entertainment featuring a handsome duel between idealistic Lancelot and devilish Mordred echo the offbeat icon marketability of warrior-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "The Dark Knight" (2008).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
