How might you change Knightmare if a new series were to be made?

Other than Treaguard and Lord Fear

Dunno if it has been done or not yet but which other characters would you like to see return to the show.

Motley would great Scargill, Slyvester Hans.

I'd like to see Motley, Hordriss and Sylvester Hands make a comeback.  
I'd also like Mogdred to be re-introduced.  Maybe it could be revealed that he was Lord Fear's father or something, and they rule the dungeon together!
I like my telly scary, and very dungeonish.

I think I'd like to see Hordriss back more than any other character. :D

Agreed.  Hordriss the Confuser had some real class.  He was always meant to be neither good nor evil, wasn't he?  But we only ever saw the good side of him.

Perhaps if he returns he could do some really nasty, Mogdred-esque deeds.

I certainly think that having a Mogdred-style baddie in the Dungeon, in addition to Lord Fear, would spice things up nicely. Lord Fear only ever encountered Dungoneers directly in the final conflict. A Mogdred could turn up anywhere without warning. This constant background threat would give the show added menace.

No, too many cooks that way. One arch-villain is enough. Two can get in each other's way  -  have you seen how increasingly awful the Batman films became when they insisted on putting in villain double-acts instead of one baddie at a time?

Knightmare could maybe have an independent villain, but then that was what Hordriss was there for, at least originally.

He was on neither side up until he replaced Merlin, which then he went to the good side.

Indeed - I meant that the Mogdred would operate independently from Lord Fear. The two could occasionally cross paths, though. For example, one could accidentally foil the other's plot against the Dungoneer.

Example of two villains in Km: Lord Fear and Maldame.

Hmm. I think I'd personally prefer to have something like an integrated Opposition (still with the usual mercenaries and such) and then more "neutral" characters of the ilk of the early Hordriss and Greystagg.

Not sure how relevant what TC posted in a nearby thread is to this. Is the strict limit on numbers of characters he mentioned only applying to the London thing, or to any show too? If it did apply to the show, I'm not sure there'd be enough space for a LF and a Mogdred among the characters.

Anyway, I'll just sign off by saying Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss Hordriss.

That is all.

Now there's an idea for a bad guy apprentice.  :D Hordriss put a spell on Skarkill that turned him into a fish (and a one-eyed one at that- still with the patch on the eye and the scar), popping up in say, 'the underwater level' (an idea toyed around with on this forum ages ago), and you have to answer 2 out of 3 questions correctly to get through. If not, he...he...well, I haven't thought it through fully yet.

*Thinks*

Maybe he batters the dungeoneer? ;D

1 major RedMage / Hordriss vote here as well. It's quite a difficult one to consider actually.. for without a blindfold, there will be diferences in the encounters as well... some of the appeal of various characters will be different.

I do like the idea of a 'roaming' opposition, offering a more random threat, rather than it becoming more predictable in an encounter at the end. ~ Be that as it may, though - exciting to be able to consider such possibilities.

His name is 'Treguard', first of all.

And I'd like to see:
Treguard
Lord F
Lissard
Hordriss
Sly Hands


The rest should be new characters imo, just I feel that group is essential to maintain that KM feel.
