FLASH GAME: BLACK KNIGHT This game pokes fun of the noble knight fantasy by having a the Black Knight do the king's bidding--which is to collect gold from the peasants. In other words, you're a tax collector with a big sword.
Tax collection at the point of a sword is not too far from tax collection at the point of a gun. You may think that is far-fetched but try not paying your taxes for several years. You'll eventually have that gun shoved in your face after they cart you off to jail.
