strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is actually a pretty good basis for a system of government

Via Dave Log we learn that whilst trying to escape the oppressive heat vacationing in Cornwall, a young maiden named Matilda went wading in Dozmary Pool and recovered a four-foot long sword—the same place that tradition holds King Arthur returned his blade Excalibur to the Lady of the Lake after being mortally wounded and before being taken off to Avalon. Suspicions that the sword is not authentic and could perhaps be a film prop or a gift left in homage and probably does not confer regency has not detracted from the excitement of finding the artefact.
