Storyline

After being captured by Turks during the Crusades, Robin of Locksley and a Moor, Azeem, escape back to England, where Azeem vows to remain until he repays Robin for saving his life. Meanwhile, Robin's father, a nobleman loyal to King Richard the Lionheart, has been murdered by the brutal Sheriff of Nottingham, who helped install Richard's treacherous brother, Prince John, as King while Richard is overseas fighting the Crusades. When Robin returns home, he vows to avenge his father's death and restore Richard to the throne. Even though Maid Marian, his childhood friend, cannot help him, he escapes to the Forest of Sherwood where he joins a band of exiled villagers and becomes their leader. With their help, he attempts to cleanse the land of the evil that the Sheriff has spread. Written by Graeme Roy <gsr@cbmamiga.demon.co.uk>

Goofs

When Robin begins training the outlaws, we see an arrowhead being cast, outdoors in a small mould. Next, we see an iron/steel arrowhead being shaped on a stone. Iron or steel could not be cast, outdoors and in the small quantity as shown, due to the heat needed. The metal shown can only be pewter, lead or tin. To produce arrowheads in those conditions, a friendly blacksmith would beat out a suitably thin piece of waste metal, chop pieces off, then, others could file or rub them to shape and sharpness.
