Re: BUT spell

"But" could have stopped the magic sword (I wouldn't have thought there was intended to be a wordplay on 'butt' but you never know) and then the Transformation spell could have turned Mogdred into - say a lizard. However, he was blocking the obvious exit - although Treguard could have directed them ...

Re: BUT spell

Drassil, you seem to have understood my point of view well regarding the BUT spell encounter! The only Behemoth I know is in the book of Job, which for me doesn't particularly equate to the knight in Series 3 (although you're correct in recalling that Treguard made that connection). In some ways I w...

Re: Weeping Doors

Thanks for your thoughts, Drassil and DuxBellorum! I am sure Tim could have come up with some ways of increasing the difficulty on Level 1 in Series 4 - extra clearings with goblins/assassins/the ogre etc. Corridor of Blades?! That would be more likely if the production team thought we were unlikely...

Re: Best Series

Thanks Evelyn. That's kinda how I see it, too. Knightmare didn't evince credibility on a large-scale good vs opposition war. The dragon flights and spyglass sequences were easy to produce but passive TV, and Lord Fear spoiled Knightmare for me. There were other ways teams could gain insights into th...

Re: BUT spell

I'm glad you liked the FrightKnight suggestion, DuxBellorum; in fact they were in Series 4, as Gondrada declares in our question (towards the end of episode 15). Not quite the same as in Series 5, when they were floating around with a mechanical sound, but termed 'FrightKnights' nonetheless.

Re: BUT spell

That's correct, undoubtedly. But it seems OPPOSITE has a clearer association with poison (negating it) than does TRANSFORMATION (into what?), which is why I think TRANSFORMATION was for something else - namely, to turn Helen back into herself. Or possibly into a Frightknight.

Re: BUT spell

Yes, possibly, although I think it would be too similar. I think both spells were to be used in the same room, unless of course TRANSFORMATION was never to be used. However 'BUT' on its own doesn't seem at all climactic! I would be surprised if there was meant to be a pun on the 'butt' of the magic ...

Re: BUT spell

Hi Pooka, Thank you for sharing your four interesting possibilities. I would be very surprised if there wasn't a plan, given the detailed rehearsals Tom Hunt has described for different possibilities. I agree Team 1 were probably deemed too early to win; I suspect Tim decided to make it very hard to...

BUT spell

I think this would have led to Mogdred turning Helen into a lizard and then disappearing again, leaving Rachel to cast the TRANSFORMATION spell to turn Helen back into herself again.

Re: Best Series

I would say, out of the first three (hand-drawn chamber) series, Series 3 was the best as it was the culmination of them, so I'm going to eliminate series 1 and 2. However, I liked the way the game evolved in a gradual manner during those series, because it made the show seem familiar - as if you un...

Re: Missing room from series 4

How about allowing people to try the Swinging Axe room for the next KM Convention: is it really impossible?! Can anyone do it?!

Re: Missing room from series 4

Agreed, although if it looked intrinsically impossible to the production team they might have decided not to use it even for a team in so-called losing status, as was the case. I also agree about the ledge room from Series 3 looking hard enough without the team being harried along by a graphical wea...

Re: Missing room from series 4

Hi again Wombstar, I would be very surprised if we were the only team for it to have been tested on, although if they'd deemed it unworkable from a previous team's attempt, they wouldn't have wasted studio time trying it again. Maybe they thought it worth another go to increase the variety of scenes...

I don't know, mate. Stereotypical British sense of fair play, perhaps?

Re: Re:Interview with Rob from season 4 team 8

Hi Drassil, I have always assumed Winteria was an opportunity the production team seized in December 1990. I know it was snowing heavily in Yorkshire on the weekend of Episode 15 of Series 4, anyway! But it could have been scheduled - possibly Tim trying to get the location shooting done earlier in ...
