Merlin’s Crystal Quest story & info
The Witch Morgan le Faye trapped Merlin inside a crystal in the southeastern tower of the Camelot castle. King Arthur seeks your help and in return, will make you a knight of the round table. During this quest, you will infiltrate Morgan le Faye’s keep, acquire Excalibur, learn the chant, and do a rather dodgy ritual to free Merlin.
