Wait, HELEN was a winning answer? The one who got killed by him?! That seemed an obvious one to avoid!

*ponders* I think I'll try RETURN.

Annie says RETURN - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Rosey says TOAD - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Yet another tie - unfortunately these questions don't really have enough score variety. RETURN was cast by Treguard to retrieve Karen at the end of Series 2, while TOAD was cast by Mogdred to turn McGrew into a toad during Ross's quest in Series 3. Let's see the full list...

DISMISS - 3
ENERGY - 3
VIM - 3
ERG - 2
SHROUD - 2
UNITE - 2
HEROES - 1
HOME - 1
RETURN - 1
TOAD - 1
WIND - 1

The off-screen spells cast by characters that I was thinking of (which don't count, of course) were MOUSE (Sidriss), SAMURAI (Lord Fear) and SWORD (Mogdred) all of which were dispelled on-screen, so we know they must have been cast with the "Spellcasting" ritual off-screen.

The Head-to-Head score is still 1-0 to Rosey, and there are now only two questions left in my supply of questions. Therefore, if Rosey wins the next question, she will be the Ultimate Knightmare Pointless Chamopion of 2011. We gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...

REAL ANIMALS PUT ON FILM AND THEN SUPERIMPOSED INTO THE QUEST

So that's any real-life animal (e.g. rabbit, parrot, butterfly, marmoset) that the Knightmare production team put on film and then superimposed into the quest. NB: This does not include drawings/animations of real animals. Please also note that "Wolf" will not be accepted, as I don’t think it was a real wolf and I doubt that there’s anyone who’d disagree with me on that one!

Rosey has decided to go for Horse. Annie, what is your answer?

Quite a few possibilities here, but I'm going for BEE. Pretty sure it was a real swarm!

Rosey says Horse - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Annie says Bee - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Nice one, Annie - that really is an obscure answer! Let's see the full menagerie...

CAT - 4
TOAD - 4
LIZARD - 3
MAGGOT - 3
SNAKE/COBRA - 3
SPIDER/TARANTULA - 3
CROW/RAVEN - 2
DOG/LABRADOR - 2
HORSE - 2
TORTOISE - 2
HUMAN - 1
BEE - 0
CHICKEN - 0

So, the Head-to-Head score is now 1-1, and we move on to the decider. We gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...

CHARACTERS WHO CAN REGULARLY BE SEEN CARRYING/USING A WEAPON

So that's any character who can regularly be seen (twice or more) using and/or holding a weapon. Here are all the parameters I have been able to think of:
1) If it’s a staff, it must be used as a weapon rather than a walking stick.
2) Unused/never drawn weapons do not count.
3) Parts of the character’s own body (e.g. teeth) or fire generated by their own body do not count.
4) Magic wands do not count as weapons.
5) Haunted weaponry does not count.
Please feel free to ask for any other clarification you think you need!

Annie, which character will you plump for?

Phew!! I'm glad I got to win at least one point in the final!

(LOL, I didn't even think of Ariadne! And I wouldn't have imagined that humans would count, haha.)

Yikes, that's a tricky question to end on. There are so many to choose from....

I'm not even 100% sure if this counts as a character, but if I'm going to lose, I may as well lose spectacularly. The Automatum!

Rosey is going for Captain Nemanor.

Annie says Automatum - let's see what that scores her...

Just for the record, the Automatum's weapon is a flail and Captain Nemanor's is a sword.

And so the competition goes on - this question will (eventually!) decide the winner, and there are loads of answers left to choose from!

Rosey has decided that her second answer will be Sylvester Hands. Annie, who are you going to try?

*dies*

Christ, what a contest. I felt sure I was beaten on several occasions so I don't know how I managed to win that title! Rosey is a truly awesome player.

Many thanks to my fellow contestants, to our fabulous host Jake, and to my new hero Ridolfo!!

That was a good game - congratulations Annie.

There were some great questions there - it's just a shame there wasn't a bigger group of people to ask available!

I almost held my own on a spells question, so I'm happy. I wish my Raven Pointless contestants were as quick as you guys ;)

Well done to everyone who's been part of Knightmare Pointless' widespread fun and success.

Not forgetting the weapon he actually used (the silencer) and the one he nearly used (the Staff of St. Smasher). Of the few characters who named their weaponry, he was arguably the most imaginative. It makes up for the unimaginative fact that he was called Mace and carried a mace.

Perhaps you've been too modest over the years. :) I can't help noticing that 2 is also the number of the lev... no. I won't go there.

But then, nor did you. ;)
