This thread creates the impression that King Arthur wasn't a real person.

Gandalf and King Arthur.

If they win, I may have to toss some dice to pick between them. Personally, I prefer Gandalf, but I can't deny Arthur and his weight in both history and lore.

You all are over here talking like King Arthur's got this locked up.

It's tied!

You have to vote to decide his fate!

There's no way that Sherlock and Huck Finn should have even made it this far in the field. I question the morals of some of you.

Vote for Gandalf!
