Series 4, Quest 1. Mogdred confronts dungeoneer Helen on the bridge in Level 3.

Falling Bridge

By Keith McDonald

This long bridge in the third level of the Series 4 dungeon would begin to collapse at the behest of Mogdred or Malice.


The falling bridge was among the final challenges of the Series 4 dungeon.

Dungeoneers appear at the beginning of a long bridge, which is set in a vibrant cavern with waterfalls.

Before they move, the face of Mogdred or Malice appears near the player's standing point.

The sorcerers demand the team pledges its allegiance or progress would come to an end.

When the team refuses, the opponent sends a warning - and sometimes fires a shot at the bridge.

The blocks begin to fall as the team progresses. The dungeoneer must hurry through this three-stage bridge before it collapses completely.

You defy me? You are too proud. You ride too high. Which means you're ready for a fall.
