Under most circumstances, a password would be a basic necessity to keep a team out of losing status, but for Claire's team it was only earned after an I-command-you. For me, this explains why the necklace went unused: had the team not scored 3/3 and learned the password, they could and would have bribed their way past Gumboil. In one of the later quests, a password is again awarded as bonus if not superfluous knowledge.

When the team are choosing clue objects, one of them says of the cup, "He wouldn't like it with a bitter taste." Which "he" did she mean? And why was it said in such a bizarrely light-hearted, almost cheeky way? You're trying to say alive in a Dungeon, not shopping for novelty birthday presents!

Well, I must say Folly wasn't very nice was he now?


sorry, I'm a wee bit protective of sweet wee Gretel the 'maiden sort of maid'. Guess what that basically means? Total innocent (and slightly childish which is stupidly cute if you ask me).

Right so on to my other massive thing... stuck with Lilith in the room? I very very much doubt I would have complained too much actually, although I'm hoping they do go with the 'gave Lilith a pearl necklace' line or I shall faint from laughing so hard.

1. The adviser who Mildread mimiced was in on the story, and recorded his voice prior to the quest starting - then Mildread could mime to it. Probably wouldn't have told the other advisers, and would have just looked surprised like the rest when the moment came!

2. Somebody else did a good imitation of the adviser's voice when Mildread mimed (lines were scripted), but the real adviser recorded a voice-over later on.

3. Everything was scripted, the adviser pre-recorded the voice, and the dungeoneer was in on it. Must have just told the advisers to look astonished when the voice came out of Mildread, even though they knew about it! ;)
4. None of the above! After all the speculation in this thread, it was great to read the original brief about Mildread, confirming how they achieved the trick with her imitating the advisor's voice. :) Interesting to learn that Folly's voice was considered for one of her impersonations too.
