Lord Fear and Lissard

The Quest 2.3: Who's Who? New Crew

By Keith McDonald

Wilf Wright went under-cover to try to discover what delights the producer has in store for us this year.


Well I think we all have a right to know, don't you? If our producer is going to sit down with Treguard and Lord Fear and conduct interviews for new goodies and baddies in the room next door to me then I don't see why I shouldn't listen at the wall - do you?

I did have to plan my campaign with stealth and trickery, I even tried to pull the wool over his eyes by auditioning myself! He soon saw through that though - apparently I don't make a very convincing elf... that could have something to do with the fact that I am 6ft 2ins tall and weigh at least 15 stone (perhaps I should have tried my luck as an ogre!).

However I did manage to get a little information and I even have to admit to using a miniature spy camera to get see on this page, you know, like the one that James Bond 007 uses. I actually put my life at risk for you so a little thanks wouldn't go amiss (I am particularly partial to peanuts, by the way, just for your information of course, no hints intended).

Apparently Lord F. and Treguard are still arguing about who gets who on their side but I did get the distinct impression that Skarkill didn't survive the accident with the Red Dragon at the end of the last series and that he has been replaced by a reptilian character called Lissard.

I also overheard Treguard muttering darkly about changes in the dungeon management structure which sounded very ominous, but just as he was about to go into details the wardrobe mistress came in with his new trousers which he is very excited about so he quickly changed the subject. Anyway I can tell you that all the photographs on this page are of people that will appear on the new series but don't know whose side they are on.

Why couldn't the skeleton go to the Ball?

Because he had nobody to go with
