Re: Unintended Knightmare references in the news

Less a reference, more a reminder: There's been news today of police breaking up a rave in the Forest of Dean. The image of ravers fleeing in the forest made me think of Giles dashing from goblins in the Forest of Dunn in Series 4. In the Forest of Dean The dancers convene And though they may rave T...

Knightmare and Last Commanders in Wireframe magazine (July 2020)

Last month's issue of Wireframe (Issue 40) had an article abut 'the tricky process of introducing video game elements to television shows'. Knightmare features heavily: Tim Child is interviewed and Hugo Myatt comments too. The issue is available as a free PDF: https://wireframe.raspberrypi.org/issue...

Re: Mary Miller

Some people like to joke that Knightmare was the province of ham actors; others of us have a sincere appreciation for the flair these actors brought to their roles. On paper, Lillith was one of Knightmare's most generic and formulaic characters — right clue object = success and reward, wrong clue ob...

Re: Pledging: potential perks and pitfalls

Regarding Series 3 Team 4, I think if they had cast GLORY in the Stained Glass Window room, then a chalice would have then appeared showing them the correct path to take. Only for Mogdred to lie in wait for them in the next room with a rather unpleasant surprise... I like that theory. Mogdred did s...

Re: On the identities of quest objects

The first team to be able to choose their quest object were Team 7 of Series 2. They were presented with the Cup that Heals, the Shield of Liberty and the Sword of Justice (and a Fire Exit). Interesting how the Sword and Shield swapped characteristics over time, later becoming known as the Sword of ...

Re: Remixed Knightmare

[End of Series 8]

Treguard: Well I will if he will. Shall we find out? Lord Fear? Lord Fear. Are you ready for suspenders?

Lord Fear: What? Me, suspenders? You must be absolutely out of your tiny... MIND! [Pause.] I'll think about it.

Pledging: potential perks and pitfalls

I think this interesting tangent of James' from the Jedi Temple Challenge thread is worthy of its own thread. What if a team actually pledged to someone like Mogdred or Malice in a vein similar to Jedi Temple Challenge? Using Series 2 as an example, for instance a team could pledge to Mogdred in ord...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

It seems an obvious observation, but doesn't appear to have been made before: this episode marked the halfway point in Knightmare's TV run as both the end of Series 4 of 8 and as Episode 56 of 112. In terms of minutes, perhaps the halfway point falls elsewhere as not all episodes were precisely the ...

Re: KM Live Gamebook Playthroughs: Fridays @ 4.30pm

Yesterday's Knightmare Livestream featured a guest appearance, via a miniature magic mirror, by Knightmare Live's original Lord Fear (a.k.a. Tom Bell). You can watch it on the Knightmare Live Facebook page along with all the previous sessions. We're a couple of weeks away from their first onstage me...

Clue objects they shouldn't have left behind

As we know, various Knightmare quests ultimately failed because the team left behind a clue object that was needed later. I was curious about which objects, so I made a list of the confirmed ones. Series 1 Lamp Comb Horn Series 2 Shield Gauntlet Ice pack Divining rod Potion Series 3 Crayon Gauntlet ...

Much insulting of Melly by Gundrada: "Some silly little dungeon-maid, all curls and no muscles."

That may explain Mellisandre's apparent curiosity about Gundrada's muscles in this publicity photo:
