Knightmare Pointless IV

Post by Eyeshield » Mon Nov 07, 2011 4:34 pm

I now have four contestants confirmed for this round. Whoever wins will go through to join previous champions Ross, Rosey and Annie in the Knightmare Pointless Champion of Champions Game, and battle it out to be crowned the Ultimate Knightmare Pointless Champion of 2011!

The four players who will be fighting for that final place are...

Nick: He reached Round 2 in the previous game, after winning a tense tiebreak in Round 1. This is a player with tenacity.

Amy: She has been the runner-up on both of the last two games, losing at the very final hurdle by going down 2-1 in the head-to-head both times! Will it be third time lucky for Amy? Only a fool would underestimate her.

Ben: He was the first ever Knightmare Pointless runner-up, but he lost that tense Round 1 tiebreak against Nick last time. After being a correct answer away from winning once before, Ben may just go one better this time!

Greg: He was out in Round 1 of the very first Knightmare Pointless, but now Greg is aiming to prove himself and take his place amongst the Big Boys (and Girls)!

The game will begin as soon as all the answers are in.

The game is on, but there are a couple of little changes to mention:

1. The maximum score for this game is 6 rather than 8.
2. Round 2 will take the same format as Round 1 this time, instead of featuring boards. I had a matching-up type question to do for Round 2, but there is absolutely no variation in the scores and our technical team (that's me) has judged the question to be unplayable.

Also, as always, please bear these two little rules in mind at all times:

1. For the purposes of this, "character" means any role that's been confirmed as having been played by a credited Knightmare actor, except uncredited, unnamed individual creatures/monsters.
2. The unbroadcast pilot episodes (from 1986/7) and Knightmare VR (from 2004) are not taken into account for any question.

Right, let's play Knightmare Pointless!

ROUND 1

In the first round, each of you will give me two answers. Whoever has the highest score at the end of the round will be eliminated. If you give a wrong answer, you will score the maximum of 6 points.

We gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...

DUNGEONEERS WHO MET LILLITH

Unusually, I don't really have anything to add to that - we're just looking for the first name of any dunegoneer (from Series 1 or 2, obviously!) who entered Lillith's domain during their wanderings.

Amy is first to answer.

Ooh good it's started. Am I allowed to ask if there's a pointless answer for this?

There are no pointless answers for this question.

Amy says Maeve - let's see what that scores her...

Four of our six people remembered Maeve's fatal visit to Lillith's lair in the second episode of Series 1, so Amy scores 4 points.

Nick, it's over to you. Please post your first answer.

As Ben is around at the moment, I've told him he can answer now if he wishes.

An excellent answer, Ben - as anyone who has read this thread comprehensively knows, that is the lowest score possible for this question, so you could not have asked for a better start. Claire was Lillith's first visitor in Series 2, and the only dungeoneer in that series for whom she did the old "Rock to rock and stone to stone..." chant.

If you come online, Nick, please post your answer.

Hello. Sorry if I've kept the game waiting. I'll go for Simon from Series 1, please.

Hmm, another 4-pointer there - interesting. Simon's scene with Lillith in the third episode of Series 1 is probably the lengthiest Lillith scene ever, as it contains a lot of chat from Lillith herself as well as Treguard's first explanation of Spellcasting!

I'll now attempt to get Greg to PM me his answers over on the Raven forum.
