Golden Galleon

By Keith McDonald

A ship that transferred dungeoneers between Lord Fear's two towers in the final series.


The Golden Galleon was a vessel that sailed across the Great Mire. Dungeoneers boarded it to travel from Linghorm to Marblehead, where their quest object was based.

Teams usually arrived at the jetty or on the top deck. Their challenge was to evade miremen guards and get below decks, where they might find supplies or a spyglass.

Players disembarked onto the Docks of Marblehead where opportunists such as Honesty Bartram or Maldame might try and strike a trade.

The vessel wasn't used solely by dungeoneers. One team encounters the unlikely pair of Motley and Stiletta who had decided to raid Lord Fear's bullion chamber in Level 3.

The important thing here is to get below decks as soon as possible.

Jericho

The Wall of Jericho, with the full room behind. Appears in Level 3 during the early series of Knightmare.

This complex room was sometimes obscured by a large wall in the foreground. Once beyond this, dungeoneers were able to summon Merlin.
