Series 4 Episode 6

Post by Leggy1210 » Sun Jun 08, 2003 2:27 am

Series 4 Episode 6 posted! (http://www.legs-world.co.uk/nostalgia/k ... ries4.html)

"The bells, Master! The bells!"
"I know, Pickle.  You're a half-wit elf, not a demented hunchback."

I've also upped a higher quality copy of the Knightmare Cult Selection spotlight.
"Side-foot to your right...!"

My favourite was "You can bet your life on it.  After all others do".

I thought it was a fairly slow episode with no life threatening situations whatsoever.  19 minutes was on the clock and not much had happened.  At that point in Series 3 they would have been almost blown up, chased by a few goblins and had a meeting with Mrs G.
You remind me of all the other men I've met in my life. All helmet and no brains.

Series 4 Episode 6

Post by Tom41 » Tue Aug 10, 2004 7:10 pm

Since the previous ep timed out as soon as they entered the place of choice, it resumed here today. Pickle tried to make them choose the crown, but Treguard intervened again ;)
Excellent navigation going round the spindizzy disc, and we learn that the dungeoneer can indeed see the ledges on the edge of the disc!
After passing through the door, you'll see the adviser's screen black out. My guess is that it stayed black until they had set up the next room for the team.

Next was the drawbridge room with Dooris. Pickle told them the calling, but the adviser telling Nicola the calling messed it up slightly! Nicola somehow called out the right words though, and Dooris set them the 3 true/false riddles. Scored 3/3 and the drawbridge opened.

Hordriss was in the Eye Shield room this time. He took some details (and Pickle complained that they were handing out calling names!). Then Hordriss launched into a sort of job interview =P before asking to retrieve a small object for him (the dagger of darkness) and gave his calling name. Then allowed the team to take the eye-shield.

Lengthy eye-shield sequence, in which goblin horns sounded! Then entered the forest clearing - with two people there. One was Brother Mace, the other had a hooded face. From Brother Mace's dialogue, it appears that the hooded guy (Brother Silence) was an assasin! Mace made a 'silencer' which he used to knock out Brother Silence ;).

Brother Mace led Nicola into Oakley's glen, which had items on the stump as usual. After taking the food, Oakley appeared and set them the standard 3 riddles. Scored 2/3 on the riddles (after passing on the 2nd question, I think the only team to ever have said 'pass' for a riddle!). Gained information, SMALL will let them take a path others may not follow.
Listen out for the advisers confirming with Treguard the number of items they're allowed to take, and whether the fish (food) counted as an item. Took the SMALL potion and the gold bar.

After another eye-shield sequence, entered the ruins of Dungarth. Encountered Fatilla the Hun at the gate, and bribed him with the gold. "One little measly solid gold bar?". He also looked at the other item, the SMALL potion - which he had no use for, he would prefer a LARGE!

In the next room, there looked like a very small door that she couldn't go through at normal size. Opened the SMALL bottle, and some magical stars appeared to come from it. (Look out for another hint of a mouse pointer here). Nicola appeared much smaller, and was able to pass through the door.
Came out of the fireplace and encountered Motley, who was still normal size! Timed out before Nicola could say anything.

Same 'prototype intro' used under the credits.
One day you say "Enter Stranger" and big goblin comes in!

Team started at the place of choice and choose the Crown as Pickle suggested. I’m glad he could see it; all I could see was a Challenge logo advertising “Gameshow Gods.”

Into the Level 1 door chamber and then met Hordriss at a table. Today’s pact was to retrieve the dagger of darkness – just to prove he was “of the grey” (He obviously touches up the red bits)

Onto a Klassic Knightmare scene with Brother Mace and Brother Silence the Backstabber (aka an Assassin) This provides more comic relief and isn’t relevant to the game – but is fun anyway!

Oakley in the next glen – got 2 out of 3 (presumably Romulas and Remus was the missing answer) before bribing Fatilla with the Gold.
“Small, no I’m large!”

Used the SMALL potion to get through the door – last season this would have been a spell. Timed out as they met Motley.

“The bells, master! The bells”

Had our little title sequence again.
Good night out there; whatever you are!

Not to rubbish the team, who seem ok, but nothing of note really happened in this episode. I can't think of anything to say about it.

Good scene in this episode with Brothers Mace and Silence though, who's fanclub at one time exceeded 5 million memberships (not really). Ok, so he was an assassin all along, but we should have seen more of him. He could have been Lord Fear's top henchman in Series 5.

And Motley appears at last! All we'd seen of Paul Valentine so far is the Boatman, and that's hardly 'seen'!

The Place of Choice also gets the "You're in a room" line.

Note Hordriss writing with an anachronistic biro or pencil instead of his usual quill! Sounds like plastic when he drops it on the table. (He still pretends to dip it in the inkwell, though!)

Watch out for another goof in this episode, where they've obviously tried to cover up an error made by the dungeoneer. Brother Mace gives Nicola some bread, and her life force returns to condition green, even though she's clearly sitting on the knapsack and hasn't touched the food. The bread remains on the table in front of her for half the scene, then disappears suddenly in between shots - you can also hear a sound edit where Mace's laugh is abruptly cut off!

Mike Cule's face after knocking out the Assassin - I don't think he was acting when he burst out laughing! ;D

Over 25 years since this episode was first shown - yet only today whilst watching the Challenge repeat did I clock on to this which struck me as amusingly interesting.

A Fighting Fantasy reference in Knightmare? Who'd have thought it! ;D :green:
