An update for Kickstarter-funded massively multiplayer online role-playing game Camelot Unchained sheds light on the mythology behind "another possible Arthurian race," the Cait Sith.
According to the update, City State Entertainment does not want Cait Sith to "be like Thundercats" or anthropomorphic cats; the race also needs to be "badass" and have a unique society. Additionally, the Cait Sith must be tied into Arthurian legends in a way that reflects "both popular local opinion (fear) and the concept of Arthur as a unifying force within his realm."
The update also includes a lengthy legend of how the Cait Sith eventually grew in intellect and became a sentient, powerful race.
