Re:Thoughts on VR

Interesting point about watching other people play a computer game. But wasn't the original show just watching others play their game? Personally I think avataring dungeoneers is slightly risky because it may de-humanise the player a bit, but not completely. Real people are still playing like they a...

Re:End of The Line

It looks like we won't have to wait very long before we have Knightmare back, guys. James P mentioned KM's return yesterday in a thread called 'The adventure game when did it start?' on the Challenge forum. It's probably not been confirmed yet though. I was expecting a much longer wait before news o...

Re:End of The Line

I think it's a good thing that Challenge are resting it for now. Hopefully it'll return after a few months. It's also a good thing Series 1 and 2 have only been aired the once, because I'm sure Challenge will want to repeat them at some point, and get a return out of them.

Re:Series 8, Episode 1

I don't like getting particularly picky, but isn't it illogical to everyone that a massive red dragon cannot fit through a six foot door? Still, I suppose it's no different from the Trolls in series 7. The dragon looks good anyway. Gideon is one of the most memorable advisors. Kind of felt sorry for...

Re:Series 8 Episode 4

Maybe I missed something, but which item could this team have bartered with? There was a key, a glove and a needle, not really trading material. Did they just give up the SIGHT potion too readily? Honesty said the key was 'of some interest', so did they need to persuade him to trade for that? A litt...

Re:Series 8 Episode 3

Good episode. I think that the progressively longer and harder levels adopted in this series is the ideal situation. Let's face it, a quest only becomes really interesting when a team reaches level two. Don't you just hate it when a team dies in level three, and you realise you have to start watchin...

Re:Mysteries ReVisited

Maybe other dimensions other than our own interact with the Dungeon - children from many worlds may take part in the Greater Game. Who knows...? Very interesting idea this. It was a very clever idea to begin with - to make the dungeon a realm that constantly morphs. In doing so they could do anythi...

Re:Stuck in a lift with...

The idea of Charon and the Styx could be a great one to use in VR. I always thought the Styx was supposed to be a river deep down in underground caverns. An underground Styx as an entrance to Level 3 would be cool. And a reintroducing of Festus may well be in order. If only we could see him this tim...

Re:Mysteries ReVisited

Exactly how many dungeoneers have trod the path? Treguard is meant to have conquered the dungeon (according to the books). And in series three, by which time there had been roughly 20 quests, Mogdred says "defy me and you will fail - like hundreds before you". The only conclusion must be that many m...

Re:Stuck in a lift with...

I think both the Boatman and Brother Strange go to the same tailor. They both go for the 'scruffy cowl hiding face' look.

Do you think the boatman is meant to be Charon, the dead guy that rows souls to Hades (AKA Level 3)?

Re:Favourite obstacles?

Actually, I think the new one, 'Slice Me Dice Me' would be in there somewhere as well. It's a nasty piece of work.

Good question. For actual cast characters I'd take: Merlin, Lord Fear/Mogdred (either/or), Motley, Malice, Sylvester Hands, Hordriss, Mellisandra, Mrs Grimwold, Julius Scaramonger, Brother Mace, Skarkill, Elita, Lissard, Ridolfo, Morghanna For creatures I'd have: Golgarach, Oakley, Goblins (and the ...

Re:Series 6 Ep 15 (The final one)

I think Chris was probably the most assertive dungeoneer ever. I think the team would have stood a good chance of redeeming the sword if there was time.

If only there was that vital sixteenth episode, there may have been 9 teams on the roll of honour rather than 8. Shame.
