Level 1

The quest begins in the Dice Room.

Treguard: "It's one of the fundamental laws of the quest that most dungeon cells have six sides. So, by coincidence, does the common gaming dice."

They arrive in the Scorpion Room. Douglas gets caught by the sting and loses a level from his life force status.

They proceed through a tunnel inside the creature.

Motley is sat in an empty pool, complaining that all the water has been drained.

Motley: "'Motley', I says, 'tonight's a once-a-year night. Tonight is bath night.' Only to find out that some idiot's pulled the blimmin' plug out."

Knightmare Series 3 Team 8. Douglas abandons Motley to a snake attack.

A snake appears behind Motley, but the team don't tell him - they just make their own way out!

Motley is not impressed.


Death

A bomb room. They don't have the gauntlet to halt the fuse.

BOOM.

Treguard: "It freezes the fuse, don't you know? Well, no, of course you don't, because you didn't earn that information from the clue room."
