Richard had appeared in the second pilot episode of Knightmare, filmed in January 1987, and was selling his script. Billy snapped it up and is here to share both his story and the script in all its detail. Read More

  • AegisQuest


    AegisQuest is a live-action RPG in which a group of advisors guide a blind quester through a dungeon of riddles, puzzles and traps in a Dungeons & Dragons style adventure. Despite being unrelated to Knightmare, it has a few similarities with the show we all know and love, and is well worth watching. The team behind AegisQuest has released a short pilot episode of their production. Read More

The seventh and final team of Series 6 must thwart an attack from Lord Fear's new red dragon.

Team 7: Chris, Nicholas, Gavin and Simon from Ruislip

The team has crossed the Level 2 causeway following advice from Greystagg.

See Team 7's progress so far.

Hordriss intervenes in an emergency. Lord Fear has released the red dragon to destroy Knightmare Castle.

Hordriss: "Listen to my voice and listen hard. My power grows weaker as it approaches.

"Lord Fear has released the red dragon to attack your stronghold, and to settle the game once and for all. It was the last straw when Greystagg rejected his alliance."

"The beast is airborn and on its way. Prepare for the worst!"

Smirkenorff was unable to save them as he had become weaker following Elita's capture.

Treguard instructs Chris to forget the sword and to seek out the galleon, Cloudwalker.

Treguard: "Its captain, Nemanor, hates Lord Fear. He keeps a lightning rod aboard to dispel storms.

"It's the only thing that will bring down a dragon. You must get it, and bring it to us."

Chris jogs through a set of dwarf tunnels and arrives at the ship.

Once he alerts Nemanor of the danger, the mariner is prepared to help.

Captain Nemanor: "I believe you, boy, for the truth often has an unpleasant ring about it. The lightning rod you seek is beneath this deck... Tell your Treguard to aim well, and not to miss."

Chris collects the lightning rod beneath the deck and heads for the hatch. The incidental music darkens.

Pickle: "Come on, Chris! Nearly there! Come on!!" (Everyone shouts).

He sprints down the tunnel.

Chris returns to the antechamber. Treguard promptly ushers him to safety and orders Pickle to collect the mace.

  • Treguard: "When I give the word, strike the Quest Table. First, cross my hand. Are you ready?"
  • Pickle: "Ready Master!"
  • Treguard: "NOW!!"

Treguard holds the lightning rod towards the magic mirror. As Pickle strikes themace, a bolt of lightning strikes across the mirror.

The red dragon is struck and killed.

The team was dismissed due to the strike upon the Quest Table. Treguard and Pickle wonder where the dragon has ended up.

The view switches to its smoking carcass. Lord Fear curses as he slowly emerges from beneath it.

  • Lord Fear: "Skarkill! Skarkill! Get me out of this. Where are you, you imbecile?"
  • Skarkill: "I can't! It's got me an'all. This is very unlovely. Its gone and bust me other leg an'all."

Skarkill notices they are being watched.

Lord Fear: "Ah, Treguard! Gloating are you? Well, you laugh, but we'll have the last laugh!

"We'll be back! Bigger, bolder, badder and better equipped. And as for your dungeoneers...


Treguard: "He means it, you know? The comforting thing is, that whenever the loud challenge rings out, whenever the braggart brays, wherever the bully hurls his abuse, there are always a few quieter folk prepared to simply stoop and pick up the gauntlet.

"And it will be thrown down again, you can count on that."
