Team 7: Jeremy, Alexander, Amanda and Anthony from London.
The seventh quest of Series 4 was for the Shield and lasted 26 minutes.
From the Place of Choice, Jeremy stumbles off the disc onto the path of the Shield.
At the castle entrance, they encounter the Weeping Door. Pickle sits with the advisors to offer support.
Treguard: "Its name, by the way, is Dooris. But then, the Opposition has such a foul sense of humour."
The team scores 3. Jeremy crosses the open drawbridge to escape.
In a green room, the team gets quite excited when they see the Eye Shield.
Their attention is soon drawn to the company. A crone is getting frustrated with her magic broom, while a sorceress is getting frustrated with the crone.
Treguard: "A sorceress called Malice and a witch called Goody. One is well named; the other is not."
Jeremy agrees a pact with Malice to find a silver chalice.
Malice: "It is not the Cup that Heals - I only wish it were!"
In immediate exchange, she gifts him the Eye Shield.
Under threat from the witch, the Eye Shield leads him out.
Jeremy arrives at a tavern, the Crazed Heifer. Inside, Motley is attempting to entertain the patrons.
Motley: "I've seen turnips brighten than this lot!"
Jeremy gives Motley a fresh joke for his collection. Motley rewards him with a spell, JOKE.
Jeremy continues through the forest, to Oakley's glen. The tree troll tests the dungeoneer's credentials as 'tree friend' (score: 2).
Oakley advises against the glove, so Jeremy takes a bar of gold and an hourglass.
Next, the team approaches the ruins of Dungarth.
Pickle: "Isn't it rumoured to be the haunt of assassins, master?"
Inside the ruins, an assassin creeps up right behind Jeremy. Thankfully, one shout sends it scurrying away.
They bypass a large lizard to reach a moving conveyor belt. Doors are passing on the left and right.
Too fast. You need to save time and perhaps stop the action.
Jeremy sets down the hourglass, which pauses the belt by an exit.
Fatilla the Hun is guarding the wellway. He swindles the gold from Jeremy then plans to kill him anyway.
Fatilla: "Thanks very much. It's nice and beautiful and shiny and I lied."
With no other option, the team spell-casts JOKE. With Fatilla helpless with laughter, Jeremy proceeds down the well.
Jeremy lands on a table in a circular room. A goblin statue has flickering eyes.
Extreme warning, team. This heathen idol has what they call the 'evil eye'. Whilst it continues to look on you, extreme energy drain is occurring.
Alexander directs Jeremy to cover the statue's eyes. The life force drain stops.
Motley and Mellisandre bound in to congratulate him.
- Motley: "Eww! Mellisandre, come take a gander at this bit of ugliness."
- Mellisandre: "Motley - that's awful!"
The team answers Mellisandre's riddle and earns a joker.
Jeremy arrives in the Block and Tackle at an awkward angle. A burst forward takes him into the left corner.
The floor crumbles beneath him and down he goes.
Treguard: "A fatal error of timing, I'm afraid, team."
