Series 4: Winners

By Keith McDonald

There was one winning team in Series 4. Team 6 retrieved the Crown, completing their quest in 54 minutes.


Team 6: Dickon, Dominic, Tim and Praveen from Torquay

The team has survived the Corridor of Blades and a falling bridge.

See how the quest has unfolded so far.

Knightmare Series 4 Quest 6. The face of Malice appears large in a circular chamber.

The sorceress, Malice, appears for a third time. This time, her patience has ran out.

Malice: "Enough!! I lose patience. Contrary to your beliefs, this is not a game. You thwart me and so I destroy you!"

The team spell-cast FIRE, which sends a blast into Malice's eye.

She retreats, screaming.

The danger is still not over. Treguard warns that energy levels are now critical. The team casts OPPOSITE so Dickon can consume the poison he is carrying.

Into a chamber where he encounters a third Weeping Door - Dooreen (score: 3).

Treguard summons Merlin, who arrives flustered into the antechamber.

Eventually, he regains his senses. He spell-casts UNITE, which returns Dickon to the antechamber.

Merlin: "They are not valuables, you understand. Merely mementos. But what you have achieved is far more than any treasure."

The team all rise, as the dungeon salutes them. Merlin spell-casts HOME.

Knightmare Series 4 Quest 6. Treguard watches on as Merlin sends the team home.

Merlin: "Let me know when you have another winner, Dungeon Master. But do make it soon!"

We were all treated like stars whilst we were there and we will never forget it. We are all eager for an invitation back again!
