Medieval Murderers Synopsis: In The Tainted Relic by Medieval Murderers, it is July of 1100 and Jerusalem has been ransacked. During the chaos, an English knight is given a relic to safeguard – a fragment of the True Cross, which is believed to have been stained with the blood of Jesus Christ. The True Cross is allegedly cursed and those that touch it will meet a terrible death. Decades later, the True Cross has been found in the hands of a dealer, who has been robbed and murderered on his way to Glastonbury. From then, various characters such as Crowner John, William Falconer, Sir Baldwin and Nick Revill will learn of the relic and must investigate it and the bodies that lie in its wake.
