1: Getting started
Talk with King Arthur in Camelot Castle and ask him if you are allowed to join the Knights of the Round Table. He will tell you about Merlin who is trapped in a crystal and tell you to talk with the other knights.
Talk with Sir Gawain (frequently found outside) and ask him how Merlin got trapped. Now go upstairs and talk with Sir Lancelot, ask about how to get into the Morgan Le Faye Stronghold. Lancelot will tell you that you need to get in using a boat. If he won't, ask the other knights there.
2: Keep Le Faye
Go to Catherby, and speak with Arhein on the dock. Ask where he sails and if you can get a lift. He will tell you not yet, since he is waiting for a box of candles. Now go to the back of the candle shop, just north of the boat, and hide in the box there. You will be transported to Keep Le Faye.
Once you're at the Keep, go up the 2 sets of stairs, and fight Sir Mordred (lvl 34). When you've nearly killed him, Morgan Le Faye will appear and ask you to spare him. Ask her how to get Merlin out of the crystal and she will tell you that you need the sword Excalibur, a black candle, bat bones and some magic words. Ask her where to find Excalibur and the magic words.
7: Freeing Merlin
Now go back to Camelot and outside in the garden, find the fountain on the north east part of the grounds. Under the little building there, there will be a circle-like thing on the floor. Stand in the middle of it, and drop the bat bones. Thrantax the Mighty will appear, if you say the right words, it will obey you; if not, you must fight it. You will wish that Merlin could be freed.
Note: The black candle needs to be lit. Use a tinderbox on it to do this.
Now, for the last part. Go to the south-eastern ladder of the castle, up the 2 sets of ladders, and use Excalibur on the crystal. Now go back to King Arthur, and he will reward you.
