Re: The new KM episode is up!

I don't like to intervene, but I think you guys are not thinking it through. In terms of what happened 1987-94, some chambers could be designated levels one, two or three. But the game changed in 2013 when we played adults in, in an adventure that could not possibly go past level 2. All I was trying...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

It’s not a director’s cut. Much simpler explanation. Google YouTube didn’t want anything longer than 25 minutes. That was quite hard (well very actually) to do without the sort of butchery which would have made a complete nonsense of the sub plots and storylines. As it is they took a bit of savaging...

Re: knightmare on youtube

If you look at the shows on Challenge TV...Fun House, TNA wrestling, Bullseye, Who wants to be a millionaire, all these and more appear on YouTube (and have have done for some time) in either clip or full episode form and this has not stopped Challenge TV from buying the rights to show them. I appr...

Re: knightmare on youtube

Some perspective on the recording and posting of whole Knightmare episodes on YouTube. I imagine some of you on this site may well have done this without necessarily thinking things through. Firstly its illegal. Completely illegal. It’s also illegal to post Knightmare clips, but as the primary intel...

Re: The new KM episode is up!

OK: some notes on the reprised Knightmare. Google didn't want us to show them what a new show would look like, and although they wanted the players to be adult geeks, they were hooked on nostalgia, They also wanted me to take full advantage of two new members of cast who were brought in by them at n...

Re: Ask Lord Fear

Dear Canadanne, This is an easy one. I'm The Opposition me. That means I'm against the Powers that Be, The Ruling Classes, usually the ruling government, broadcast monopolies, and anyone else who wants to stop people like me from having their say, or wants to charge them good gold for the privilege ...

Re: Ask Lord Fear

Dear HobGoblin, Don't be so revoltingly humble. You should know by now that I don't do humility. As for demography (I prefer demonography by the way), I don't care a goblin's wart if they're toddlers, teenagers, baby boomers or geriatric ITV executives. Just bring em on I say. The more the messier.....

Re: Ask Lord Fear

Dear Malefact How does it feel to be back? One simply rolls back the years and rolls all over the opposition. Also I missed the gloating bits. As for my message to your new ITV masters? Keep up the good work, Keep weeding out all the tossers, bean counters and dysfunctional nonentities who've been r...

Re: Ask Lord Fear

Just because you were once lucky enough to catch me on an off-day Mystara, doesn't mean you can indulge yourself with rhetorical questions. Rhetoeric, old thing, is my perogative! Of course you and your lot have already done the business. What greater sacrifice could any youngish person make than to...

So - Welcome watchers of Illusion - to your very own Agony Uncle Column. This is where I, myself, Lord Fear, answer all your questions, as you agonise over the future of Knightmare, and what the intervention of Google/Youtube portents.

Re:SOMETHING STIRS

Solving this mystery may be beyond you so I'll help, although you're probably not going to believe this..... Whilst teaching an artificial intelligence that it was an Orc/Goblin, I named it Beveryafraid (after myself). However, as I taught it and it got cleverer, it wanted to know who was teaching i...

Re:If it ain't broke...

I've been looking at this argument, and there is something missing. By series 8 we were seriously under pressure to increase production values and deliver more game per studio day. that meant on-the-fly switching to close up cameras. Then you needed to apply instant close up backgrounds to character...
