Knightmare quests at conventions etc

Taking up a tangent from David's recent post: I've also been wondering about the logistics of holding a quest at a convention or something - with careful selection of rooms, it seems the logistics of it wouldn't be impossible to recreate using a home setup these days... We know of various convention...

Re: Room background sources

Hi again and thanks for extending your return visit to these virtual shores. :) If there's one thing better than a Knightmare kick, it's a Knightmare kick that delves behind the scenes (or in this case through the scenes). Thanks for sharing this collection of observations. It's difficult for me to ...

Re: Series 3 - Episode 4

In the room when Hordriss appears, does one of the advisors swear? The one in the middle I think, uses a modification of the word fork :) I would love to believe this is true, but I think it may be Deborah on our left saying "Mark, you direct him." He would've met Merlin quite late in thi...

Re: Series 4 - Episode 16

Reflecting on it now with your help and that of others on the forum, the "you do want to be home for Christmas, don't you boys?" does seem a bit redolent of a public school of a bygone era. Maybe we should have said "Surely, Santa Claus - sorry, Merlin, we're not going to miss Christ...

Hi, Glenn. How have you been? Good to see you here again with another blast from the past. Thanks for plugging Knightmare.com at the end of your video. I found the original thread about your old college project: https://www.knightmare.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=988 One thing about the Helmet...

Re: The Day the Night Slept

Welcome back, David. Good to see another old forum member returning. It supports something I once said: I like to believe that even when people do move on from the forums, they don't move on from Knightmare. Fortunately there are examples of this. Well done on getting Hugo for your project and for s...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Despite Beaujolais de Pfeffel's promise of food aplenty, there are shortages in many clue rooms, especially of fish. Treguard decides to put his post-Series 6 avuncular disposition to good use by making sure that dungeoneers are fed. He restocks all the clue rooms with fish pies under a pseudonym, t...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Corbiss is returning from the Isle of Wight. He is sustaining himself on the journey with a supply of confectionery treats that have half a nut on top. Meanwhile the Dunwold Thump, vowing to fight on against Count Brinkatore a.k.a. Joseph the Bider, has appointed as his spokesperson Ridolfo. The min...

Re: Brighton 2021/2022?

I support Brighton as a choice of meetup location. A good place for activity and inactivity, and not without its Knightmare connections.

Re: Unintended Knightmare references on TV: game shows

This year, I'm A Celebrity is foregoing its usual setting in Australia and will take place at a castle. Gwrych Castle to be precise. Here's hoping for lots of Knightmare references from ITV, ideally intentional references. Although Gwrych Castle wasn't a Knightmare filming location, hosts Ant and D...

Treguard on Children's ITV 14/11/1988 and his other costume

A short clip has emerged of Hugo Myatt, as Treguard, appearing on Children's ITV on Monday 14th November 1988 to announce the winners of the Design a Dungeon Room competition. I'll leave you to track it down in an obvious video sharing place, enjoy it and then return here so I can be dull about it. ...

Re: Greetings

Welcome back. I've seen your other message so I know which thread you're referring to, but please could you confirm it via private message? I'm confused by your reference above to 'a Ireland' and want to make sure I've grasped your meaning.

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Despite the shortage of free skull meals, Beaujolais de Pfeffel insists there is food aplenty for everybody else: they just need to overcome their fear of the dungeon plague by going into clue rooms, kitchens and marketplaces and eating. Though Treguard refuses BeauJeau's request to popularise the h...
