An introduction is necessary I believe.


My name is Cadrighan the Chronicler. I have been asked to edit this little journal due to the sad demise of Wilf Wright, who is believed to have perished under the paw of a Wyrdbeast somewhere in Fetlock Forest on his search for Pickle the Elf.

Out green-gartered friend is in fact perfectly well and living in said forest with his own people, doing his best not to draw attention to himself, especially from a certain Dungeon Master to whom he owes a great deal of back rent.

You know it really is a dreadful nuisance having to do this, as if it's not enough having to chronicle the adventures beneath Knightmare castle. I have another task thrust upon me by the Powers That Be, which involves complicated time transference. That means spells to get the stuff into the future for you to read it!

And what do I get out of it? Not a great deal, except for a terrible stink from my room which seemed to take up residence from about the same time that Sly Hands paid me a visit. You can see what he had to say opposite, by the way.

In this issue we also have the concluding part to our Knightmare Top Trumps feature. This time it's with characters from previous dungeon phases. Furthermore we have an interview with the second of our winning teams from the last series, featuring their extremely modest dungeoneer, on who I would dearly love to cast a silence spell.

Barry also wrote us a letter, which you can find in shortened form on the letters page on page seven.

Lovers of adventure everywhere will be pleased to know that there will be definitely be another series of Knightmare later on this year and you can be sure it will be the best yet. In the meantime you might like to examine the listings section on this page which tells you exactly what all current cast members are up to.

Oh, by the way, look out for a new Knightmare book, which will be a puzzle book to tax your brains on all matters Fearful. It should be in the shops in the autumn.

And remember, if you need any chronicling done, I'm always available.


Want to find out what your favourite Knightmare actors are doing at the moment? This section will allow you to check out what they're currently up to. Please remember that the actors will not be in character.

Treguard (Hugo Myatt) After playing the villain in panto Hugo is preparing for a season of plays at the Gravel Theatre, Wolverhampton.

Lord Fear (Mark Knight) is at Shakespeare's Globe Museum on London's Bankside. Old Fingernails is frightening people young and old by giving - would you believe it - lectures and workshops on "How to be a Shakespearean Baddie". And who knows better...?

Majida (Jackie Sawiris) has just finished a children's video for BP - look out for it in petrol outlets.

Sidriss (Iona Kennedy) has been practising her magic skills, hopefully to pass into the fourth level. However in doing so she found herself on the wrong side of the law in "The Bill". But luckily she knew a friendly "Minder" who squared it with ITV and saved her from the clink. Since then she has been using her vocal skills working for Spitting Image.

Hordriss (Clifford Norgate) is currently using his considerable talents in Book Week, to encourage school children to read more. Clifford has plenty of expertise in taking the printed word off the page, having made over 1500 broadcasts for BBC Radio. His enthusiasm and love of reading to children make his visits memorable.

Romahna (Jacquelin Joyce) is currently in "Dead Funny" a play by Terry Johnson, an adult comedy at the Vaudeville in the West End.

Lissard (Clifford Barry) recently finished a major tour of "Waiting for Godot" with Brian Glover, and is currently decorating his abode!

Sly Hands (Paul Valentine) After departing the dungeon Paul has been playing "Muddles" in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves in Guildford, playing a mad scientist in a German pop video for MTV as well as teaching Voice and Presentation at the Basingstoke College of Technology! Paul is currently working on his own comedy act which he has been asked to take on board the Orient Express.
