Today there was an electrical storm while this episode was on, so my recording has a bit of digital noise and skipped frames caused by interference from lightning strikes coming into the digital cable TV box.
The team had only just started when resumed from time-out. Only 2 minutes down the path, according to the info bar!
This episode seems to have various letters appearing in the rooms, probably something like the CITV competition in the previous series. This time, there was no sound effect to signify the letters appearing - so you had to look carefully!
Dooris sounded different in this episode - perhaps a female person doing it this time? The team only scored 1/3 on the true/false riddles, but the door still opened!
Encountered Merith in the eye-shield room, but she was dressed as an old crone sweeping the floor. Spoke rather like Mildread from the first two series, but with a different voice
Merith requested them to retrieve a leather-bound book for her in exchange for the eye-shield.
"Simon, side-step to your left!" in this room... oh, how that phrase will become famous later on =P
Through an eye-shield sequence into the forest clearing. Oddly enough, Fatilla the Hun appeared in this area, and they didn't have any items to give him! However, a Knightmare first (and last) - PICKLE actually came into the forest clearing and talked Fatilla out of attacking SImon! Treguard wasn't too pleased with Pickle coming into the dungeon, and ordered him back straight away!
Shame that the ad break came at the end of this scene, I was hoping to make a video capture of it.
In the next area, Oakley's glen, Fatilla thought to himself that Simon wasn't a 'forager' as Pickle said. But then Oakley appeared and frightened Fatilla off!
Another unusual situation here. After convincing Oakley that Simon wasn't a theif, he just allowed Simon to leave and take any items he wanted - without a question session first! Also Oakley gave information on each of the 3 items. They decided to take the horn and the hourglass.
They blew the horn to scare off the goblins guarding the entrance to the Fortress of Doom. Sounded like a modified version of the goblin hunting horn
Next room contained a wellway, but guarded by a huge lizard thing! They had to turn over the hourglass and set it down to temporarily freeze the lizard so they could get into the well!
Pretty short Fortress of Doom, if you ask me
In Level 2, encountered Gundrada in the stocks. Gave her water (which was on the table) and let her out. Gundrada gave them food and then accompanied Simon out of the room, requesting that they try and get back her sword.
Hordriss was in the next room, which also contained the entrance to the conveyor belt corridor. Gundrada asked Simon to go and retrieve the sword from the 'lost property' office. Hordriss asked for the name of the sword, and Gundrada tried to write the letters of the name (SLASH) in the air without being seen by Hordriss
Escaped together into the conveyor corridor, which happened to be the Corridor of Blades! This time though, Gundrada guided Simon away from all the blades.
In the next room, a goblin hunting party approached, and Gundrada got ready to fight them off - but timed out right there! Prototype intro thing used under the credits again.
