152-King Arthur: When in Rome

Things are going well for King Arthur for once. He’s in complete control over the island of Great Britain, he’s got a bunch of awesome knights, and dragon attacks are down. What could go wrong?

The creature this time is orphan bird, because when you can turn a bird that abandons her children into an religious allegory, why not?
