Re: knightmare live at fringe

As reasons for missing Knightmare Chat go, this is a good one! Seeing Knightmare Live for the first time is exciting. It was the Fringe that helped make it so successful. I hope you have a brilliant evening. Looking forward to hearing about it.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Ridolfo, an old friend of Corbiss the Bemuser's, has become unpopular. With increasingly lewd lyrics and discordant singing, the Venetian troubadour is causing widespread offence. Corbiss is urged to condemn him, but seems reluctant to criticise the Venice wailer. Meanwhile, the Dunwold Thump appear...

Marta, who accompanied Hordriss, spends her time ordering fish in the canteen and creating a series of 'Oneness' idents. Nothing suspicious about that.

Not even, it seems, when 'Marta' got Hordriss to appear in one of them.

Last week someone working on a crossword asked me about the spelling of the word vim.

More recently, I saw the following clue for a cryptic crossword:

Done messing with gun: prison the result (7)

The answer was dungeon.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss the Bemuser is under fire. A while ago, he discovered that many former Knightmare adventurers have debts resulting from their applications, travel, lodgings etc. Corbiss yearned to reach across the divide between dimensions - he can walk on water so how hard can it be? - and, after chronicli...

Re: Unintended Knightmare references in adverts

And it looks like Katharine Bennett-Fox is also in one of the Barclays Digital Safety adverts. If you're going to break the fourth wall, who better to learn from than Treguard?

Re: BUT spell

Thanks for reigniting this discussion, Brett. It's good to consider these things afresh every so often. Into a lizard? That's very specific; I can't see any indication that that would be the case! There is no indication of the likely effect of BUT one way or the other, which is why we're so free to ...

Re: Knightmare Werewolf - Weremare?

Good to know that Werewolf is having such a positive effect on the health of the chatroom. So out of curiosity (and because I was binning some of the server logs)... I'm sure there's a proverb about the binning of server logs being unsafe for felines, but I just can't remember it. the one that chang...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss the Enthuser is invited to visit a worthy farmer to exchange tips on growing vegetables. While there, he encounters an early morning gathering of peasants listening to troubadours, drinking spring water and breaking up an ice-like sculpture of Maesandre, with nothing left but a digit from he...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

During a wander through Level 2, Corbiss the Bemuser finds a bowl of Uppers (as seen in Quest 6 of Series 4) near one of the exits. By blending them with his magic, he raises his support across Winteria and gains a new epithet. Encouraged by the exit bowl, Corbiss the Enthuser coaxes Queen Maesandre...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

The Dunwold Thump has moved into an opulent new abode: the Covfefe of Confusion. It is built on dudgeon and deceit, which he alone has mastered. Rumour has it that everything is gold, even the showers. Meanwhile, Corbiss the Bemuser decides to attend a public meeting of those who hope to lead Winter...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Maesandre is also criticised for chanting "strong and stable" over and over. She claims that she saw a drunken vagabond nearby, repeatedly falling onto and cracking the wooden surface in front of him, so she called for a "strong Hands table". Despite our best efforts, truth is stranger than fiction...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

The Dunwold Thump has a dilemma. He has always been happy for dungeon folk to use spyglasses on him. After all, what is the point in an ogre smashing things up if there's nobody to see it? However, he's heard that spyglass sorcery may soon be combined with magic mirror alchemy to create advanced spy...
