    Bonus points if the conflicting tales are due to multiple Arthurs trying to claim (and complete) the mantle.

    I definitely agree.

    I know all about the controversy, and my skin still crawls when I think about it, but that doesn’t change the fact that the book itself is really good. I read it when I was like 7 and it basically set the standard in my mind for what an Arthurian fantasy should be like (idk anything about the controversy till years later when I was a lot older).

    I remember a couple of "Arthurian Myth but girl power version!" fantasy novels from the early 70s. Some of them were fun.

    Given the Grail is the Dagda's Umbrey in disguise I wouldn't blame Jesus at all.

    Given that the most popular and artistically successful novel on Arthurian themes in the 20th century was T.H. White's "The Once and Future King," No one of Consequence takes the point. Other major works on the theme of Arthur are either obscure in English or suficiantly high art to be simply obscure.

    Going from the title, well there's only so many things I can think of that are Scion-adjacent that contain the phrase "Once and Future"

    In this case, I bet imaginary dollars that "Once and Future" refers to "Once and Future King" and that we're getting a supplement about Arthurian Mythos.

    (Okay I'm being a BIT cheeky. Yes, it's an Arthurian Supplement, I saw it mentioned on the OPP Discord)

    At a guess, the King Arthur/Welsh pantheon book. I hope that is true, as I've really been looking forward to it.

    (I'm hoping maybe it'll include something about the Anglo/Saxon/Jute mantles for the Aesir.)
