Re: Timebusters

A belated thank you for coming back and posting all the extra material, fivegoldstars. 'Unique insight' is a cliché but I think it applies here, so it's most welcome. Your shortlist letter is precisely 25 years old today. I'm ashamed to admit that although I knew Timebusters involved a bus, somehow ...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

The Dunwold Thump is concerned that the dwarves living in the Mines of Gorea might start launching stalagmites. Unable to visit the mines himself due to its lack of cakes and beaches, he asks Ah Wok to offend and provoke Gorea on his behalf. Meanwhile, Queen Maesandre has returned from a sidesteppin...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

[Thank you. Having an appreciative audience makes my quest to turn ire into satire all the more worthwhile.] The Dim Ferryman seems destined to struggle. He wants silver or gold but has to make do with bronze. His prospects of leading the dungeon are so remote that some people are calling him Timoth...

Two dungeoneers try to ride on Smirkenorff at the same time. United airwans remove one of them by force, drawing blood. The incident becomes known as The Red Draggin' and The Haul of Folly.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Meanwhile in Winteria, Queen Maesandre has bowed to the will of her people, who no longer want to be part of a united dungeon. To protect Winteria from invaders, a new border control is established in the form of Trial by Spikes from Series 7. This version contains over 49 spikes of ice and the quee...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

While Forage has his head buried in the Dunwold Thump's policies, Thump himself has launched into a tirade against Treguard, whom he claims has been listening to his spyglass and shellphone conversations. According to Thump, Treguard had been advised that he could form fresh alliances by doing so. A...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

In a distant corner of the Knightmare realm lies Coatland: the settlement that supplies overgarments to dungeoneers who visit Winteria. Many years ago, the Powers that Be claimed ownership of Coatland by placing an ornate chair there. For some time, this chair was looked after by James the Reeder, w...

Re: David Rowe's Art of Knightmare

Also in series 1 and 2 there was a big food behind a row of doors which the team had to avoid, sometimes they just needed a key. So many Big Foot refers to that room? The moving foot appeared only in Series 3, in the second and fourth quests (Cliff and Leo). Even if it had been recorded for Series ...

Parody of Automaton by Jamiroquai

Normally I let songs mature for a decade or three before rewriting them. But not this time. Here is a parody of Jamiroquai's week-old single Automaton. Video , lyrics Am I near?

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

"Are you not due a meeting with Maldame?" Or, as it's also spelt, Maldamay. Thump and Maldamay appear to have a favourable meeting, compared by Thump to the famous Mogdred/Lillith partnership of an earlier age. At one point, Thump and Maldamay hold hands, shortly before an outbreak of projectile vo...

Re: Unintended Knightmare references in adverts

I wrote:Is that Series 4 Team 3 advisor Katharine Bennett-Fox in the latest Plenty advert?
It is. Her 2016 ads showreel confirms it.

I'm not certain enough to do an article for the website, but it looks like Katharine in the Domino's Winter Survival Deal advert too.

Parody of Freedom by Wham!

Twice in Knightmare, a catcombite was brought to a standstill with a FREEZER spell. It didn't happen a third time because the catacombite sung this song - to the tune of Freedom by Wham! - to explain that it's just hungry, that's all.

Eurythmics - Here Comes The Rain Again The very start makes me think of Series 5 and Smirkenorff flights. Paul Simon - You Can Call Me Al Elf portal at the back (once the door's open).

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss the Bemuser proclaims that knapsacks should have a maximum weight. Then he seems to backtrack. The main event in the Dungeons, though, is a visit by the Dunwold Thump. Passing time until his inogreation, he has embarked on a thank-me tour. Among those he meets is the troll from Series 2 who ...
