Yes, they are most certainly impressive.

Hopefully David will show us more pictures of the long lost Knightmare dungeon very soon....

Yes, I saw these yesterday. As much as I love the Serpent's Head room in S3, I love the artistic variation on it here.

What about those from last week? The causeway is made more intriguing by the addition of a second exit.

I like the two-exit causeway a lot.

What's intriguing is the fact that you can make a few words with the letters available - DR has highlighted MORTAL to indicate a correct route, but you could just as easily make PORTAL (which might actually make more sense considering where you're going!) or (at a push) PORTING - which leads to the other door (on the left!).

It's much more complicated than FIND/PATH - I imagine the keyword would have been given out via a spyglass or scroll or something - but I'd have loved to see this as a puzzle!

A couple of people have suggested that a book of these "After the Greater Game" rooms be published.

I would happily pay towards a kickstarter for it!

Very enjoyable indeed! Definite potential for a sequel to his earlier work.

I did wonder if those maggots were feeding on the giant's corpse. Looks like maybe they were!!

Superb isn't it! I'd love to see him do a portrait of Lord Fear. :)
