There's something I've found on the internet...

Hey, fellow Knights and warriors

I was looking on the internet a while ago(like 2 min. :P ) and I found this
Mysterious green and blue clouds enshroud the obsidian turrets of Carnageion Castle. A foreboding fortress that seemed to appear within a new moon's phase, a disease-like fear spread across the kingdom with a similar speed as squads and legions of the black knight's armies conquered surrounding villages and halls.
King Archibald still lies upon a sickbed, reeling from these surprise attacks. Unaware and unsuspecting, the king has lost one quarter of his kingdom within the blink of an eye to the heavy gauntlet fist of his one-time ally, Victor Carnageion.
And now, at the very heart of the solemn shadow that he himself has cast, a brooding Victor continues to plot with sinister sorcerers and wizard dragon masters the complete and final conquest of Archibald's kingdom.
All of this occurs within the impregnable walls of the Black Knight's castle!
It has something to do with the review of the magnificant set #6086 (that can be found here:http://www.adequate.com/lego/reviews/Details/56.html) but it says something about king Archibald but who is he?? Can someone explain this to me? :D

I'll explain:

Each of these reviews begins with a story, invented by the reviewer, which is intended to give the reader an idea of the play-value of the set.

The names and story are not taken from official Lego.

Hope that helps.

As Formendacil said, most of the names in the stories in adequate.com's reviews are made up by the reviewer. Some of the reviews have a recurring storyline, others don't, but most of them are not official LEGO names.
I always thought this was one of the coolest things about adequate.com... it's a shame it's no longer updated.

No problem.

And if you want THE Black Monarch to be named Archibald, that is something you can do. It's LEGO, make your own story! Borrow from someone else's! Uses the official one!

If you like it, do it.

That's what I like about Lego. You can have things the way you want. BTW, I thought that was a pretty neat little story.

:roll: Listen, the only Black Monarch is the one you make up. There is no "official" Black Monarch who is the mysterious and all-powerful leader of the Black Knights.... only the one you make up. Don't let someone else tell you who the Black Monarch is. This person simply says the Black Monarch, in his imagination. :wink:
