A map of the world of Camelot.

The world of Camelot[1] is the world within the storybook of "King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table" and the setting of Sonic and the Black Knight. Much like the world of the Arabian Nights in Sonic and the Secret Rings, the world and its inhabitants represent the stories and characters in the book.

The world of Camelot is divided into four domains that make up the kingdom of King Arthur.

Grand Kingdom

The Grand Kingdom is where the kingdom's capital is located. Visible on the game's map screen, the Kingdom takes up the north-west corner of the game world. It is dominated by forests, especially in the north. Areas visited by Sonic during his adventures in the world of Camelot that lie within the borders of the Kingdom proper are Deep Woods, Camelot Castle, Knight's Passage, Shrouded Forest, and Dark Hollow.

The Outlands

Lying to the south-west of Grand Kingdom, The Outlands stretch from the southern edge of the forest to the volcanic hills far in the south. Playable areas located within this region are Misty Lake, Molten Mine, and The Cauldron.

The Highlands

Covering the entire eastern side of the map, The Highlands start as rolling, grassy hills, giving way to vast cave systems in the south. This region is inhabited by migratory tribes of Arthurian folk, who travel the grasslands in vast wooden city-wagons. Game stages include Titanic Plain, Great Megalith, Crystal Cave, and Dragon's Lair.


Taking up much of the central southern portion of the map is a large sea, featuring only one island: Faraway Avalon. It is here that Sonic fights his final boss battle against King Arthur.
