A new update from this project. The following verses continue from where I left off in update 3, here.
At this point in the story, Arthur finds himself hesitating in initiating the attack on Romeril. Thus, Gawain seizes control of a ship and sails towards the coast – hoping to win the beach with a handful of men.
