Well all King's quest novels had connections.

Like the character "Culatha" shows up in 2 out of 3 of the books. She is possibly in all 3 if the "white fairy" in See No Weevil is also her.

As for the companion I always wished that Peter Spear could have done an update for Mask of Eternity :(... it probably could have added alot more to the story...
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

Yeah, tis a pity, but I'm not sure even Peter Spear could have done a good job, the story was so bad :-\

There actually probably less story in KQ2 and he managed to add more to it...

If all the action is the problem you see? Well there have been plenty of adaptations of action adventures and FPS games that were entertaining and even well written...

Imo, the story wasn't "Bad" per se, it just was full of cliches and was kind of weak, do unfortunate removal of several important story elements, that were cut out in order to release the game on time...

Wait, check this out...I had to hunt for approximately 3 months to find the 4th edition.  It covers game I-VI.  But look at what I circled. (Source)

Are you sure it covers only games I-VI?  Maybe whoever you bought it from forgot to include the KQ7 CD. :S

That pic is really cool! Is it supose to be Rosella and Alexander in it? Looks like Rosella has dark hair and her dress is similiar to the one she wears in KQVII. IN KQIV she wears a red dress and uses a bow to make the unicorn her friend and to kill the villain. The dragon/monster resembles an iguana. I'd like to get the KQ companions.

KQ7 CD?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!  No, it didn't.  Also, the cover of mine only says I-VI.  Also, I bought the VII guide seperately.

According to your link and Amazon the 4th Edition does go to VII it's the 3rd Edition that only goes to VI.

(Humbly bowing) Thank you for your assistance My Queen. ;] I am not worthy of such attention. (Continuing to bow.)

I’m thinking of purchasing one myself.
