Symbol of the Grail

A depiction of the Grail, symbol of the Cult of the Lady.

The enchanted chalice kept by the Lady of the Lake, known as the Grail or the Holy Grail, is not like any other precious or magical item. It cannot be taken from her or kept by any mortal person. It is recorded in Bretonnian annals that a wicked and foolish Knight claimed to have possession of the grail. In reality it was a false grail with which he intended to fool and confuse good and virtuous Knights so that he could wrongfully seize the throne of Bretonnia. He met his well deserved fate at the hands of the Grail Knights, servants of the true grail. This episode has passed into Bretonnian history as the 'Affair of the False Grail'.[1a]

From time to time, Questing Knights return from their wanderings bearing ancient golden cups or similar items which they have found in old burial mounds or glinting on the bottom of forest ponds. Such things do not fool Grail Knights who have seen the true grail and know its true appearance! Such false grails are revealed for what they are by Knights of the true grail and their finders must return to their quest or be disgraced.[1a]
