The Quest 4.1: Introducing Stiletta

By Keith McDonald

Tally ho! New character Stiletta is mighty handy with her throwing knives. She lets slip how she plans to use the Dungeon dimensions to further her fortunes.

Are you looking forward to partaking in Dungeon affairs?

You jolly well bet your life I am. I like nothing better than a good looting session and any excuse for a spot of target practice on those brainless dungeoneers.

What do you think of dungeoneers?

Well, to be perfectly honest I really don't waste much time thinking about dungeoneers at all (tall, muscular, handsome warriors are more my line), but if you really want my opinion they are usually brainless nuisances.

Are you a feminist?

When it suits me.

Will you side with Treguard or Lord Fear in the Dungeon?

Ah! Well I am afraid I am playing my cards close to my chest on this subject, but it does rather depend on what's in it for me!

What do you think of Maldame's chances of usurping Lord Fear?

I can't say I know her very well, so I'm not sure how successful she will be, but I wish her luck - it would teach that dome-headed power junkie a lesson to be knocked off his perch.

What about the rumours that Motley has fallen in love with you?

I haven't the time or the inclination to think about that blundering idiot, but I can assure you that if he so much as breathes on me he will be swiftly run through with a blade.

Knightmare Series 8 Team 6. Stiletta points a knife at Motley.

How will you cope with goblins, miremen and other nasty creatures?

They're not a problem to a warrior thief like me. One slash of my broadsword or a little precision throwing of my knives leaves them sliced or filleted.

Blimey! Doesn't anything scare you?

Not on your life.

How do you wish to go down in the archives of Dungeon history?

I would wish to be remembered for my unbeatable skills with the blade, and for the fact that I have stolen several of Lord Fear's prize possessions - and he never felt a thing.

Do you intend to be in the Dungeon for long?

Long enough to loot Marblehead (Lord Fear's new lair - Ed) and find that tall, handsome warrior with the long blonde hair that I have heard roams the dungeon domain.
