Re: Knightmare on Teletext - Recoveries!

I'm still hoping that another Knightmare Teletext adventure will be recovered. In the meantime, for anyone who missed it, To The Ice Palace Of Aesandre was recreated as a playable adventure by Paul Kelly at http://www.castleteletext.com/pages/Page%20458.htm

Losing status v cause of demise

I dislike that the reason teams die in the game isn't actually the reason why they died. If that makes sense. And quite often the reason Treguard gives the team (and thus the viewer) isn't the real reason. This was an interesting tangent in the Series 7 Episode 10 discussion and I wanted to create ...

Re: Discord Server

Heya dudes, first of all; long time no see. Hard to believe I joined this place when I was 16 and now I'm nearly 33. Fright(knight)ening! :D But here I am again to see how much things have changed since my last visit. Which doesn't seem long ago, but I needed to say hello :) Welcome back, Glenn. It...

Re: Corbiss the Bemuser

This wasn't how Corbiss the Bemuser wanted his leadership to end. (If indeed he wanted it to end at all, or to begin, or if he even knew it had begun.) After emerging from hiding in Winteria last year, Beaujolais de Pfeffel brought a terrible plague back with him. His action is now known as Oaf Hid ...

Re: Series 7 - Episode 10

and little challenge for the team in solving a four-letter anagram Oh you mean like "P-a-t-h" and "F-i-n-d" in the great causeway of level 3 in Series 6 as the final challenge before the quest object room? LOL. Indeed. With that in mind, I can easily believe it to be DICE. In the case of the Great ...

Re: Series 7 - Episode 10

Due credit to TheBrollachan, who had already suggested it earlier in the thread: Suppose that you may have to rearrange the letters plus the missing ones to make the word/spell. So if the missing letter was "E" then the word/spell could be: D-I-C-E With no theory as to what a DICE spell would have d...

Questions for Brett (Series 4 Team 8)

>> You look at your hands as you "fade away" when Treguard spellcasts D-I-S-M-I-S-S. Did you improvise this or did a memeber of the production team ask you to do it. Or likewise did you ask them if you could do it? (I love that little touch by the way. I love that you were so "into" the show compar...

Re: From little Closes do Cults and Plagues grow...BROOKSIDE!

The plague mentioned by Robin the title of this thread refers to a storyline where a mysterious virus struck the Brookside residents, forcing them to cordon off Brookside Close. Episode 1544 from that unfortunately prescient storyline was transmitted 25 years ago today; you may be able to find it on...

Re: The Crystal Maze: Virtual Knightmare

Thanks for the links, James. I'd like to think that Virtual Knightmare is an official name, but it may just be what The Crystal Maze Database has called this game. Al Murray's (successful) attempt at the game was particularly enjoyable, with excellent guiding by Ashley Taylor Dawson. It included an ...

Well said, Chris. We can make it through the labyrinths of fear. Wishing everyone life force status green.

Re: Unintended Knightmare references on TV

After last weekend's Doctor Who, people are wondering who the Timeless Child is. Until we know more, I'm happy to treat it as a nod to Knightmare. You just have to remove the eless. It seemed appropriate to learn of the Doctor's creative influence in an episode whose title includes the Knightmare c...
