What is a Dooley

Post by Wolfshead » Sun May 16, 2004 1:51 am

In the first qhest of series 3 Velda accused the dungeonere of bring a dooley with them, this rurned out to be Tregurd. Also when Team 5 called her to deal with a Frightknight she called it a dooley.

What could dooley mean?

Velda said that her real name was not Velda, her real name was aher summoning anme. Elves wouldn't dream of giving away their real names, that's why Pickle got so worked up isn't it.

Mallice: Merris (not Niles's wife, thogu that woudl explain things)

There was a large armoured knight in series 3 mainly on level 1, whose main point was to hurry the teams up like goblins.

That knight was called a Behemoth, not a frightknight.

What was Grimaldine's calling name, or did we never find out?

Grimaldine simply used his own name as his calling name.

I know strictly speaking is wasn't a Frightknight because they were midnless mechanical things where as the Bohemath was probably an Ogre is a suit of armour. I only called it a frightknight because Gundrada did.

No one has been able to tell me what a Dooley is.

Gundrada did indeed call it a FrightKnight in S4, yet in S3 Treguard referred to it as a Behemoth. I have no idea what the difference is in the actual show!

None, I expect.

Calling nanes are real names. "Elves wouldn't dream of giving their names away." this is becuae they could get summonned and Pickle didn't like dungeoneres giving away their real names.

Magi could because they could deal with however called them, e.g Merris, Malifact and even Merlin.

Greystag probably couldn't have dealt with Lord Fear though.

The question still stands, what does Dooley mean and why did Velda call Treguard one?

It's a shame you never felt any inclination to speculate on this yourself. :P

This question did arouse my curiosity, and I have spent a lot of time puzzling over it. I've looked up every conceivable spelling of dooley in every dictionary I can lay my hands on, I've searched online... but I remain clueless. The best I can come with is to conjecture (unconvincingly) that perhaps Dooley was an in-joke: the surname of someone known to the Knightmare production crew.

dooley...

sounds to me like a word to describe something when you can't remember its name- like whatsit, doodah, whatnot, etc....

Although I do know an actress with the surname "dooley" but she aint nothing to do with Kmare!
