Session 9 - 05 November 2000

Pickle ENTER STRANGER!

Treguard You don't look very tough; I just hope for your sake that you don't meet anything, unpleasant in the dungeon depths. Please state your name and age please.

Treguard And where do you hail from?

Pickle Can't we throw this one back, Master? I want the last team back again...

Treguard Pickle! Shut Up! We don't want to discourage our teams!

Steve home of the stolen car

RaNg lol

Treguard I don't think they have that many adventures there

*Pickle shuts up

Steve yea we do

Treguard Ok then; let's get to grips with this adventure then. I expect that you've already read the rules and regulations of the dungeon provided on the Knightmare website. If not, well, it's just tough luck as websites haven't been invented yet here. For those who merely watch, here's a brief reminder.

Treguard On your travels you make take two objects unless told otherwise. You can possess as many spells as you like but only cast 3 in the whole adventure. Your health status is represented by a display shown in the top right of the magic mirror.

Treguard This doesn't always appear, but it goes through a few stages. In green you are at full strength. When it turns yellow, you should be on the lookout for food, and on red you are in grave danger. There are 3 stages when the life force is red.

Treguard On the 3rd red stage, you are dead! Put food into your knapsack and designate a person on your team who will cast out spells, and one who will give directions.

Treguard If you all give directions, or answers to a riddle, then the first answer / direction will be taken. Good Luck

Treguard Oh by the way

Steve I will cast spells

TheBaldYeti I'll be action caller

Treguard What will your quest be for? The Cup, Crown, Sword, Shield, or Unknown i.e. MYSTERY quest

Pickle They seem to be deciding for themselves, master. Initiative is a nice quality in a team, so it is.

Pickle The cup... the cup...

Treguard Pickle it's their choice! Not YOURS!

Steve sword?

TheBaldYeti Sword

Steve SWORD

RaNg SWORD

Treguard The Sword? An excellent choice

Pickle So tetchy, you are.

Treguard Take a bold step into the unknown!

TheBaldYeti I think I'm allergic to elves

TheBaldYeti forward we go

Pickle Good luck... you're going to need it...

Treguard I'm sure they will Pickle

Dark gardens in the second season of the Knightmare RPG.

Treguard Welcome to Level 1 team. Here you have very little to worry about, but always be on guard for food and objects for which you can use on your quest.

Treguard You are currently on a path which winds its way through a small garden area. At the back of the garden is a shed. If you continue along the path, you will eventually come to a portal.

Treguard It's up to you team

TheBaldYeti Can we get into the shed?

Steve lets go

Treguard yes

RaNg go in the shed

Treguard OK

TheBaldYeti walk inside

Treguard The only objects in there are a pitchfork with blood stains on it.

Pickle I don't like sheds, team...

Treguard You don't like sheds?

Steve what is the other stuff

Treguard Well, it's for the team to decide whether there's anything useful

TheBaldYeti Shall we take it team?

Pickle I know... "it's not my quest..."

Steve y not we can always drop it

Steve if we don't need it

Treguard I should hurry team

RaNg I don't think we need it

TheBaldYeti Take the pitchfork and leave

Treguard you leave

A Level 1 clue room in the second season of the Knightmare RPG.

Treguard You enter a small hall shaped room with an exit at the very back of the room. Just in front of you is a table with some objects on it while on the right wall is a wall monster.

Treguard "Oh not another one. I'm going to have to go on a holiday. All of this damp weather and hard work is starting to tire me. Ah well. I hope you're ready dungeoneer.

Treguard You have come in search for clue objects, and some information to help you decide on what objects to take. Well, you must earn you information."

Treguard "Listen team. With 2 correct answers you will get minimal information about your quest. With 3 correct answers you will get all information and after which you should call out

Treguard "I command You" to receive a bonus. Score 1 and you will get no information. Score 0 and your quest will end sooner than you think."

Pickle Wall monsters... which one is this, master?

Treguard I'm not sure. Possibly Stoney

RaNg ok guys

Pickle Never heard of him.

Treguard "The time of questioning begins. Here is my first

Treguard And there will be no help, from pesky elves or dungeon masters!

Treguard It has the power of healing my dear young Jason, Your Argonautic skills will prove you well in you search, But what object is this?

* Pickle mysteriously becomes gagged

Treguard AN ANSWER!

TheBaldYeti do you know steve?

Steve is it the golden fleece

Treguard Truth Accepted

Treguard Here is my second:

Treguard Who destroyed the Cyclops, And the Odyssey the name of his ship, And was cursed to sail for 20 years without finding his home land?

Steve Odysseus

TheBaldYeti I think its Odysseus

RaNg I agree

Treguard Is that your answer?

TheBaldYeti yes

Treguard FALSE HOOD

Treguard Ulysses was the answer I sought

Treguard Here is my third and final question:

Treguard We're sometimes found with 52 others, But part of them we are not,Sometimes discarded we are, Rummy we float, or not float-That is the question

Treguard What am I?

Steve playing cards
