The Quest 3.2: Lord Fear's Diary

By Keith McDonald

Lord Fear's latest diary hints at a new red dragon for the upcoming Series 8.


Series 7 (1993). Lord Fear plots with Sylvester Hands over a fake Wand of Majesty.

Dear Diary,

Watch my lips and get this down because I haven't time for writing.

In any case I don't believe that tosh about the pen being mightier than the sword. Just try cutting someone's head off with a goose quill and see how far it gets you, that's what I say.

Where was I?

Oh yes, Well, life's no picnic being the Underworld's mightiest living being. It may be tough at the top, but it's no joke at the bottom either, especially in the Dungeon Dimensions where one sign of weakness is taken as an open invitation to kick against The Boss.

Take that awful amphibian Lissard, for instance. One merely had to mention that we were possibly pleased with his assistance in demolishing Witch Haven when he introduces a small army of Miremen into the second Level!

Miremen in The Quest, the Official Knightmare newsletter. Volume 4, Issue 1.

I wouldn't mind, but he's the only one they'll take instructions from and we're now importing 80 tons of tuna chunks a week!

And the rest of the staff aren't much better..

Raptor is completely obsessed with preparing his new battle galleon, which we're thinking of calling 'The Spirit of Dead Dungeoneers'. That's my way of a warning to the next bunch of little beasts who think they can trifle with me and get away with it. Anyway he's gone all 'Yo-ho-ho! and 'Avast Behind', and I can't cope with that nautical rot.

Strange to say, but it's that disgusting little dungheap Sly Hands, who's been the only one to come up with the goods.

Don't ask me how, but he's managed to find me a Red Dragon, and this one's an absolute monster!

Yes: I know. I know they're all monsters, but this one's more monstrous, if you see what I mean. Anyway it won't be long before everyone sees.

The new wyrm calls himself Scaborous. At least I think it's a he... not the sort of subject you can raise politely, when you're staring down the barrels of two 16 inch flame-throwers.

Anyway; this one is definitely a touch beyond anything that Treguard and his chums can come up with and I can't wait for the next season to start and see how 'Old Scabby' sets about the Powers that Be.

'Powers that Were' - more likely.

As for the hopeless little intruders - dragon niblets - the lot of them.

Ah, but don't you just love feeling in control?
