The second of Lord Fear's palaces and his principal domain in the final series of Knightmare.
- Series | 8
- Level | 3
This sinister CGI environment of black and metallic green was the final challenge for dungeoneers in Series 8.
Teams reached Marblehead by crossing the Great Mire on the Golden Galleon and finding their way in from the shoreline.
Opportunistic characters lingered outside the Tower, giving dungeoneers the chance to negotiate assistance for the challenges that lay ahead.
Inside Marblehead was a sequence of flame-lit tunnels, fiendish traps (including the Fireball Chamber and the Corridor of Blades) and the Pit of Lord Fear, where the quest object was kept.
The only escape route from Marblehead was via a sewer pipe.
Bastion of strength
Marblehead became a stronghold for Lord Fear in an increasingly dangerous political game with Maldame.
The scheming sorceress had seized Linghorm from Lord Fear half way through the season and was intent on taking Marblehead too.
Fear took drastic action and attempted to destroy his other palace with her inside.
I heard he'd built it. He claims no-one can make it out of there alive.
