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.
- Steve Steve 16
- TheBaldYeti Mark 15
- RaNg Eric 15
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 Belfast
- TheBaldYeti Houghton-Le-Spring
- RaNg Southington
Steve home of the stolen car
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
- Steve = SPELL CASTER
- Yeti = ACTION CALLER
- RaNg = NOTE TAKER
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!
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
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
RaNg go in the shed
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
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?
TheBaldYeti I think its Odysseus
RaNg I agree
Treguard Is that your answer?
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
Treguard I need a in depth answer!
Steve help guys
TheBaldYeti could be jokers
Treguard TRUTH ACCEPTED
Treguard Two is the score. You may know more.
Treguard "Noughts and Crosses are present, but noughts you want not"
Treguard The monster sinks back into the wall and falls asleep.
TheBaldYeti what are the items

Treguard Bread = It is food
Treguard Cross = The cross is one used for religious purposes

Pickle Eat the bread, team!

Treguard you take the bread
TheBaldYeti We don't want a nought so I don't think we need the coin!

RaNg we are at yellow
Treguard Examine deeper team

Treguard Doesn't matter
Pickle Besides, you're probably wasting life force... shouldn't they hurry, master?

RaNg the horn was a trap
Steve lets leave
Treguard Coin = The coin is yellow and has a T stamped on it
Treguard You leave
Treguard You enter a small garden area with a path which splits in two and leads to two exits at the back. In front of you on the floor is a spyglass.
Steve look at spy glass
Pickle That spyglass is probably genetically modified...
Forester> [Sorry but is there a UFO in that pic?]
TheBaldYeti use spyglass
Treguard You pick up the spyglass and use it
"Silence, you stupid preachers. I know that you want to worship me, but really this is stupid. Can't you just chant or whatever it is that you're doing quietly?
Ah forget this, Spell Casting MUTE. Ah, that's better, now for today's events. Mmmm, yes, yes, ah right. Hey, you, over here!"
Steve did we not pick up a horn or a fork
TheBaldYeti [we dropped fork and took horn]
Treguard you picked up the horn
TheBaldYeti can we draw a tash on him
Steve do we have a spell
"Yes right. There's a dungeoneer in Level 1. I want you to go and find this dungeoneer and destroy it. Now, remember…"
"Yes. I'm paying you good money to catch this thing, and that'll go a long way to help you buy that new arm you always wanted.
BTW, How's the shop coming along. How are your ex-customers? Well, they WERE customers, but then you decided to eat them, ah well."
"HUGHUAHUGI SPYING LITTLE P*AT!!!!"
"What? Oh my, oh, my. I do believe, yes, you're right. It's a little dungeoneer. Stay right there dungeoneer, because papa's sending something real good to pick you up!"
Steve drop it?
TheBaldYeti drop spyglass
Treguard You drop the spyglass
Treguard A useful bit of eavesdropping team
Steve where do we go
RaNg right - they know where we are
Treguard Ah. Time Out. Punctual as ever. Will our team triumph in victory, or will evil prevail? Find out next week, and just keep telling yourself that it's only a game.
Treguard There that's better isn't it? Just keep telling yourself that and you may just believe it.
Treguard If you're just dying to see what happens next, then you'll have to come back again same time next week won't you. Just don't disappoint me. Me neither!
Session 10 - 12 November 2000
Treguard: Hello there, watchers. Come in come in. It might still be Autumn where you are, but here in the dungeon, Winter comes early. My that is a howling gale.
Treguard That's the sound of an evil tyrant at work plotting and scheming to prevent the powers from be from having a successful quest. There is still much time left, but so little time to waste. Go on then off with you.
Treguard Oh I'm sorry, I forgot. For those of you who forgot, here's a brief reminder of what has already happened.
- Forester, Bart and Rachel in Level 3,
- They didn't get too far you see,
- They took a wrong potion, but didn't know,
- They weren't fast enough when they should have used slow.
- Now, Rang, Yeti and Steve are on the move,
- I'm not sure how they'll do to tell the truth,
- They carry a horn and a cross, but have barely begun
- Now, look, time continues, the game is on!
Treguard You put down the spyglass and exit
Steve rang is not here
Treguard yep. Ah well
Treguard there's a nice bit coming up...
Treguard "If you possess my token, pass and take the prevention from being a mutilated corpse. If you do give me the wrong token. If you have no token, then I shall rape you and your rotting heap of flesh and bones will have playful carnage all over it."
TheBaldYeti looks like I'll have to go on without the mirror
TheBaldYeti sounds nasty
Steve who is the guy
Treguard This Team, is the Necromancer
TheBaldYeti who said that
Treguard Whatever you're going to do, do it fast!
Steve use the cross
Steve talk to him
Treguard I will only talk when you show my token
Steve show him the cross
TheBaldYeti Show him the cross
Treguard "ARGH! You do not have my token. Now, you will perish and satisfy my needs."
Treguard Ooh Nasty! Well team. You didn't have the Necromancer's token, did you? The coin back in the clue room. Ah well never mind. Spell Casting DISMISS.
Steve here we were blind
TheBaldYeti good luck next team
Steve ah f~~~~
