Brithright as Funny Fantasy? Go figure. I also have Monty Python and th=
e Holy
Grail. Here are my thoughts on it and how it can be used for BR.

1. It's stupid and it goes against the Laws of Human Anatomy (the Black K=
still alive after having all four limbs cut off? COME ON!).
2. It's better than Prince Valiant
3. It's better than Excalibre
4. It's better than the Sword in the Stone.
5. It can't compare to Knights of the Round Table.
6. It needs a bloody ending (not LITERALLY!).
7. I've seen swashbuckler films that are more sincere (Robin Hood: Men i=
Tights! for one).
8. I don't recommend using the entire script for playing in a BR campaig=
however, the Black Knight episode is good since your dealing with a heroi=
game. For a more Austere game like Rolemaster, I'd trash it.
