When Gwyna's village is burned, a bard named Myrddin takes her in. He immediately puts her to work helping him invent legends to legitimize the violent rule of his master. Myrddin serves the same brutish warlord who burned Gwyna's village, and her first job is to present the warlord, who is named Arthur, with a supposedly magical sword-by swimming underwater with the sword and holding it aloft in the middle of a lake. Gwyna enjoys her adventurous new life but soon grows uncomfortable with her role in enabling Arthur's vicious reign.
