Arthurian Legend & History

Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
Welcome to the King Arthur LiveJournal community, a place to discuss Arthurian legend and history. Despite the community's username, it is not based entirely around the book "Le Morte d'Arthur" by Sir Thomas Malory, though said book does of course contribute a lot to the legend!

It is the aim of this community to bring together people who are interested in King Arthur and his Knights, without alienating anyone or their particular interest in a certain area of the legend/history. Everything related to King Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, Camelot, or the history or legends thereof is considered "on topic" here.

Please keep these rules in mind:

* Play nice. Be kind, be respectful, use common sense, don't troll and don't flame. Generally do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

* Whether you want to discuss legendary Arthur as a person, a movie about Camelot you saw, one of the Knights of the Round Table, Excalibur or anything else relating to the topic, you are welcome to do so. This community is not limited to only a part of Arthurian legend, but rather to the legend and history as a whole. Because this leaves such a broad area to be covered, it should be easy enough for you to stay on topic, so please do so.

* Quizzes, memes, etc are not encouraged, however if you are aware of a quiz or meme that is related to Arthurian legend, you may post a link. But please refrain from posting results from a quiz/meme that has already been linked to previously.

* Essays, debates, links to relevent web sites and general discussion are all heartily encouraged.

* Fanfiction and fanart are allowed and encouraged, however, if your fanworks involve slash, you must post a warning. Slash is not liked by everyone, so it's only fair to give people a chance to skip things they're not interested in. This goes for femslash as well.

* Please post some kind of introduction to your fanworks, including a title, rating, summary and any applicable warnings.

* Graphics such as user pictures (icons), friends only banners, web site layouts and other miscellaneous graphics are also welcome.

* Learn to use the LJ-cut for lengthy posts, or posts with pictures/graphics.

* Please feel free to make a post introducing yourself, but keep it simple. There's no reason to give us your life story.

* Problems should be thrust into the lap of the moderator, not_in_denial.
