Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

That's a potential 16 Blackpool botherers so far. Thanks to everyone who's posted in this thread. Before opening a poll to select a date, I suggest we briefly discuss the possible dates. Realistically, it has to be on a (long) weekend. The tried-and-tested schedule would have us all arrive on the Fr...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

Once upon a time, a Grey Sister set out to expose the guilty secrets of the Knightmare realm's most powerful people. She formed a sub-coven and they concocted magic to unseal scrolls and boost the power of spyglasses. The secrets started leaking out as if someone were squeezing a sponge. Reports of ...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

2019, you say? This sounds like a good opportunity to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the website/forum/chatroom and the friendships that have come from them. We can also raise a beverage container to Series 3, Knightmare's Big One, on the eve of its own milestone anniversary.

I'm the dungeon villain, punkin' opposition I'm the fear ennobled, a danger if I'm ogled I'm a fireballer, twisted fireballer You're no fireballer, t...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

The people of Winteria, feeling threatened by other parts of the Knightmare realm, demand armour. Noisy campaigning by the Vote Greave campaign and some Little Scaremongers seem to play a part. Queen Maesandre decides on the material: an impure steel made of scraps scavenged from the most labyrinthi...

Re: Pooka Plush

Thank you for sharing this brilliant creation and well done to Kit Sunae for making it.

Volume 2 Issue 3 of The Quest newsletter had an interview with a pooka, with a photo of what may well be the earliest pooka soft toy.

Re: Hello!

Hi and welcome. Knightmare (TV series + books) and medieval history go well together as interests. Dr. Janina Ramirez once tweeted: 'What about the genius of Knightmare though?? I think watching that was when I selected my career path - wandered into dark, unknown areas of medieval history, with no ...

Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

Thank you all for your insights on this topic. We met our predecessors: team seven of series four. They had clearly been told not to tell us anything about the game, and it was pretty soon after we arrived on the Monday afternoon that, as they returned from a filming session, one of the boys declare...

Knightmare Games: goblin miniatures

The Spanish company Knightmare Games sells a variety of fantasy miniatures, including goblins. Among them are a Samurai Goblin and a Goblin Witch, which in Knightmare Series 6 would have constituted most bizarre lovechildren.

Gruagach and Merlin in Hellboy (2019)

The new Hellboy film, out next month, will feature the character Gruagach. Unlike the mysterious evil being in the first Knightmare book, this Gruagach is referred to as an 'iconic pig-fairy villain'. There are some glimpses of it in the trailers. Merlin will also be a character in the film, played ...

Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

Teams 4 & 5 of Series 5 were an interesting case. Both were from Exeter; Team 4 completed Level 3; Team 5 lost on Level 1; they not only met but travelled home together too. Ray from Team 4 shared a photo ( on Knightmare.com ) showing both teams on the train; Andrea from Team 5 has shared a photo (v...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

What happened to the Anode of Power used to free Hordriss in Quest 3 of Series 7? Left behind, it was recovered by the grayling also seen in that quest. Later he offered the Anode to Queen Maldamay, plus a contract with the Dunswater Boatman for a fleet of boats even though he has only one. In retur...
