You guys know I can never back down from a good confrontation. Also, I think the best way to have responded to my comments would have been to post this picture...



...with Graham's cap photoshopped on the duck's head.

Btw, GrahamRocks, don't feel singled out by my antagonism. A lot of people rub me the wrong way for some reason or another. It's just that the clown thing seemed pretty obvious to me, given that I have been following AT4W for quite a while now, and Linkara's statement about how clowns aren't scary stood out to me for being so patently false for so many people. For every non-ironic clown in fiction, there are about 50 that are aliens, criminals, monsters, supervillains, or are just malevolent entities in general.

I never said anything about hating the SW prequels. That was Damar. And from what I can tell, Damar hates every science fiction movie that's ever come out in the past 15 years, so take from that what you will. I remember Bludshot brought up the Red Letter Media vids, but I accept those more as comedy than gospel. There are definitely things I hate about the prequels, though. *cough Jake Lloyd cough* But we've been over that subject a thousand times.

And no, I haven't read your QfG stuff. I mostly skimmed through your KQ5 story, just enough to know that Lamb would hate it. I wonder where he ran off to...

It would be interesting GrahamRocks if the game set up Graham's sacrifice and he is going to go through with it until the other Daventry family members stepped in and reversed it.

The key is mainly that thematically the way the typical Kings Quest game ends isn't going to cut it, because the simple happy ending is how every game ends and that all just feeds into the endless cycle of danger.

Something needs to break the pattern. Which is why I like the idea of it being a sacrifice, at least set up to be a sacrifice, since that has never happened in Kings Quest before and would break the cycle.

I can picture it now...

(Graham prepares to seal Pandora's Box and sacrifice himself to save the world, when suddenly...)

Cedric (flying in out of nowhere): No, Graham, stay away from the--*flies inside Pandora's Box accidentally, thus sealing it and saving the world*

Graham: Wow, Cedric accidentally did something useful again!

Crispin (teleports next to Graham): I have the solution to all your problems! *He conjures up a block of concrete and seals the Box inside of it, before teleporting it to the bottom of the ocean*

Graham: You do know Cedric was inside there, right?

Crispin: ...oh well. I'll miss the little squirt.

(Suddenly, the rest of the Royal Family appears on the scene.)

Graham: My ecstasy knows no limits!

(Everyone stares at him.)

Graham: Well, it seemed profound before I said it out loud.

(A hot air balloon touches down next to them, unoccupied.)

Rosella: What's that doing here?

Graham: Oh, it was important for a puzzle. And for continuing the King's Quest tradition of the Anachronism Stew trope.

(Much of the supporting cast appears.)

Saladin: I, and the entire world, would like to congratulate you for the highest honor of--

Lt. Shorty: You really showed 'em what for, your MAJUHSTEE!

Saladin: Shut up, b*tch, I'm talking!

(Everyone falls silent as Connor, in all his majestic glory, descends to the ground in a pillar of light.)

Graham: Oh...you're still in this story?

Connor: Why hasn't thou summoned me, forsooth?

Graham: Because your brute force would've beaten the Black Cloaks super easily and completely destroyed any tension in the plot? That's why you were relegated to that floating Pandora rock temple in the first place. Also, the scars from your game still haven't faded from the minds of the King's Quest diehards.

Connor: Thou hast forsaken mine kickassery for thine? A pox on thee! But I must leave. A nearby planet calls for aid, and aid they shall receive. *He summons a black hole over his head* To Mars! *He enters the black hole and teleports away in a spectacular display of special effects*

Graham: My heavens!

Valanice: Oh my goodness!

Alexander: Zounds!

Rosella: Holy s**t!

(Everyone turns to Rosella, appalled.)

Rosella: Sorry. I'm one of those modern princesses. They're "in" right now.

Crispin: Well, because Deus Ex me is here right now, everything is back to normal! Even the Winged Ones aren't crabby anymore! Why not celebrate with a feast?

(Everyone nods in approval and heads off towards whichever castle they belong to. And from the watery depths of the ocean comes a plaintive cry...)

Cedric: Graham, help me!



Ha ha! Wasn't that great?! No, I'm not drunk right now, why would you ask that?! You're drunk!

That might be simultaneously the best and worst thing I've ever written. I'm not sure what was in those happy pills, but evidently, they did their job.

What the team CAN do with the KQ IP and what the team WILL do are very different things. Remember that they are big fans of the series, and if they were to do something drastic like killing off a major character (I won't tell you whether they will or not - you'll have to wait and find out for yourself. :suffer:), they would have to provide some pretty serious justification for it.

Theory:

With the reopening of Sierra and the announcement of a new KQ game, this non-canon game won't work in continuity if they kill off any of the main cast.  Graham is talking to his granddaughter, Gwendolyn, in the new game being released.  (Official press release here: http://investor.activision.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=865807 ) - Nobody can die, except maybe Valanice.

Another theory:  Expect the release of this new Sierra game for the release of Episode 5 now.  Cause we've all waited this long, what's another year or two?

Dang it I like Valanice.

I will admit her only game outing didn't do her any favors (because her gimmick is that she is a fish out of water and completely out of her element)... but I HATE it when games kill off characters because they are unpopular.

I am always someone who believes that no matter how bad a game was or how geeky that... it should be fondly referred to in the games as just one part of the whole story.

Yeah... called it - got the new KQ before TSL5.

I can picture them scrambling to make things work now that we've got Gwen and Gart being the kids of Alexander and Rosella.  And Valanice makes a few appearances as well!  (Yay!  They can't kill her like I suggested!)  The fact that characters are alive means that nobody of the royal line can be offed in TSL.

Naw they can... TSL was meant to be a "ending"

And frankly the new Kings Quest game is a... uhhh... reimagining of the first game and POSSIBLY the second as well.

They can still do whatever they want with TSL, since it was conceived before the revival of the series came about. So don't pitch a hissy fit if something bad happens to the royal family members, because they've already written out the whole story now and they're not calling the voice actors back for re-shoots.

Won't pitch a hissy fit - just won't take TSL seriously if they do such a thing.

It looks like it's Graham through the years - a different age of his life per chapter.  Here's a gif I put together of his portraits when you hover over the option for forthcoming chapters.
