Treguard, Dungeon Master of Knightmare Castle, has long been in a permanent state of convalescence due to magic-induced dementia, and it has now been almost twenty years since the last dungeoneer was despatched on a quest through the Dungeon Of Deceit. During this time, the leader of the Opposition, Lord Fear, has had free reign over the landscape. But instead of using this to build a world of technology and infernal machines, Fear has lapsed into boredom, fecklessness and complacency. So one morning, a spectre from the past decides to pay a visit and lay down the law to him.


The Rude Awakening Of Lord Fear


A light-hearted response to the special episode of Knightmare made for YouTube GeekWeek, this one-off sort-of-monologue tries (and probably fails) to account for Lord Fear’s apparent total inertia during the period that Treguard was shown to have been completely out-of-action since the end of the TV series. The vignette has been made especially for the 26th anniversary of Knightmare‘s debut appearance on ITV.
