Okay, I know what you're thinking: "Who are all those shapes around the Round
Table in the first panel?"
Most of them, note, are Camellaird blue. They're some of the knights who came with the Table. Their symbols were generated with the Microsoft Wingdings and Wingdings 2 fonts.
The rectangle next to Merlin is Gawaine, with the diagonal cross from the Orkney flag. Next to him is Agravaine, the Orkney cross against Agravaine's darker green. Next to him is Gaheris, Gawaine's rectangle with the colors transposed. The parallelograms are Uriens and Ivaine.
The other side of Lancelot from Arthur are Kay and Bedivere as they've appeared in shapes once before. Next to Bedivere is Griflet. The oval next is Pellinore, the crossed diagonal lines from the Pellinore shield on a website I googled. Next to Pellinore are his two eldest sons, the ones who've appear in AKOTAS to date; the one with diagonal lines dexter is Lamorak and the one with diagonal lines sinister is Tor. The upper case K in the dunce cap is Sir Kay the Stranger. The musical note is Tristram.
I may have discovered a device for dealing with my dread of crowd scenes.
