Series 2, Quest 6. Akash and team debate what to take from the clue room.

Series 2 Quest 6

By Keith McDonald

Team 6: Akash, Tanya, Carrie and Kirsten from Sutton / Worcester Park, Surrey.

The sixth quest of Series 2 was for the Sword and lasted 10 minutes.

Knightmare Series 2 Team 6. Akash, the dungeoneer.

Level 1

No Wheel of Fate. Akash begins in a blue room with four doors.

On the cliff face, the Troll thinks that breakfast has arrived.

Treguard: "Not a lucky stop for you, team... The only fortunate thing about this encounter is that trolls aren't overburdened with intelligence. You'll just have to use your wits."

Knightmare Series 2 Team 6. The troll eyes Akash for his dinner.

Akash convinces the Troll that he's no good to eat. The Troll reckons Akash has done him a favour and gifts him a TRUTH spell.

He is almost blown up by a bomb in the short bomb room. The team's reaction speaks for itself.

Treguard: (aside) "This team seems to hunt for trouble..."

Knightmare Series 2 Team 6. The team spell-casts TRUTH when faced with Igneous's riddles.

The Level 1 clue room is guarded by Igneous (score: 1). The team spell-cast TRUTH during the first question, but fail to answer any more.

Igneous: "I scorn you! Rock I was, and rock I now become."

The team take a jewel and a jar of poison, leaving behind an ice pack.

Into the Great Corridor of the Catacombs, which is guarded by a reptilian creature.

Knightmare Series 2 Team 6. Akash is sent towards the wrong quest object in the Corridor of the Catacombs.

The team try and guide Akash through an exit marked with a Chalice. Treguard has to prompt them to think of their quest - the Sword.

They encounter Lillith, do but do not have an ice pack for her hangover headache. She rages...


Lillith: "I have no time for boys like you, so crumble, ledge, and Akash too!"

Knightmare Series 2 Team 6. Akash's quest comes to an end when Lillith collapses the ledge in her domain.

We hear one of the advisors uttering "Oh my God!"

Treguard: "Ooh, nasty! You really needed more information from Igneous, girls, because without it you chose the poison and not the ice pack."

More info

This was the only quest in Series 2 not to begin with the Wheel of Fate.

It is speculated that team six may have restarted their quest to introduce a TRUTH spell from the Troll, which would guarantee them at least one correct answer in the clue room.

In May 2002, dungeoneer Akash Ram Tarrey signed the guestbook.

Knightmare was the best programme to be on. The reason we lost was because we got into confusion by thinking we needed the poison to protect us. Great website.
