Lillith's Domain in Level 1, as seen in Series 1 and 2 of Knightmare.

Lillith's Domain

By Keith McDonald

Lillith's Domain was a stone chasm. Teams needed her causeway to escape through a serpent's mouth.


The sorceress Lillith sat above a giant gorge by a serpent's mouth.

Dungeoneers entered at the lower-right corner onto a shard of marble.

Teams had to persuade the sorceress to summon a causeway that connected this platform to the serpent's mouth.

There was no other way to exit the chamber.

If teams could not please Lillith, she would collapse the ground from under the dungeoneer's feet.

Sometimes Lillith's causeway is unreliable or begins to break up, so teams can take nothing for granted around the unpredictable sorceress.

Treguard, your presence and opinions are not tolerated here.

Bluescreen staging

Publicity shots show how the staging was arranged to make the fantasy environment convincing.

These strict dimensions allowed the artist to accommodation her position within the handpainted artwork.
