Series 7: Winners

By Keith McDonald

In Series 7, two teams were victorious. Team 6 retrieved the Sword in 50 mins. Team 7 retrieved the Shield in 63 mins.


Team 6: Julie, Helen, Samantha and Helen from Staffordshire

Julie has collected three pieces of the Arken Shield under instruction from the Celtic wizard, Grimaldine.

Follow Team 6's progress so far.

She enters the quest room. The complete Arken Shield is visible in the corner of the screen.

Julie draws the Sword from a stone. Lord Fear appears.

Well, look where you are. The trouble with pushy little people like you is that you don't know when to quit. Well, I'm going to take that decision from you.

Lord Fear

Treguard ushers the team to do something. They ask Julie to hold up the eye-shield and say 'Arken'.

Just in time, they realise it's a spell! They spell-cast ARKEN, which releases the shield. It engulfs Lord Fear as he prepares to smite Julie!

Julie emerges into a corridor in the Tower of Goth. Majida frets over how Julie will get out.

Treguard: "Julie needs a RETURN, and that means a friendly sorcerer or sorceress..."

The team summon 'Gwen'. Greystagg appears.

Greystagg: "Who dares summon me?"

Julie offers revenge against Lord Fear: not only has she retrieved the Sword, she has also held him with the Arken Shield. Greystagg gifts a RETURN spell.

Greystagg: "And now... REVENGE!"

The team spell-casts RETURN, which sends Julie flying upwards through the dungeon to the antechamber.

I know it is a small reward. But then, you have the fame. And with fame, what need the fortune? For few have achieved what you have achieved...
