Quoteit has alot of problems, and needs protecting and constant support
Quotemarry Conner to rule Daventry with him
Quotethink he owes the people too much money and has to return to many of the chickens he's killed to have time to become King.
QuoteAfter all, we don't actual;ly know how long people live in the King's Quest world. Maybe the average age is 120.
QuoteEven in the King's Quest world, in KQ7, Rosella is nearly 20 years old and she would soon be considered an ''old maid'' if she didn't marry.
QuoteThat would make sense, except that it is impossible Graham was 42 during KQIV. He was the greatest knight in Daventry by King's Quest I. To be the greatest knight, he would probably have to be at least thirty, but let's say he was 25.
QuoteOne year after KQI he headed out on his adventure in KQII.
QuoteOne or two years later he and Valanice had their two kids, and almost eighteen years later KQIII occurred.
QuoteThat, all added together, means Graham was almost 50.
QuoteAs for the Green Isles, I don't see why your saying their average life span was 40-60 years. You mentioned four kings in a 100 year timespan.
Quotewe can't estimate the average age of people onj the green isles, because most of the beings of the green isles are not human beings, but dogs and tree stumps.
QuoteI would not expect any future game to be forced to follow the novels to come up with a coherent story.
QuoteThe reason I brought up tree stumps and dogs is because besides the kings, there are no other life forms in the Green Isles. The only reference you have to indicate your theory is that there may have been ten kings in a hundred year span.
QuoteAs petra said, that proves nothing either way. If you look in the middle ages, or at other times, there are many reasons besides death that would cause a king to lose his crown.
Quote 2:Your referring to the middleages where people did not have the right living habits and conditions, but there was a time on earth where people actually lived longer, too. It's shown by several historical sources, the most obvious of which being the Bible.
QuoteYes, but what other examples do we have of how long people live. Also, don't you find it odd that all the small races like elves, dwarves gnomes, and animals such as unicorns, have such greater life spans than man, and man's is the most fleeting of all? You would think if everyone around him is immortal, it would influence man just a bit.
Quote"As far as TSL is concerned they are primary sources instead of just secondary." WHo was talking about the TSL timeline?
QuoteWHat I was saying is that if any future official game is made, they will not have to worry if they want to add facts in their next story that would contradict things already said in the novels.
Quote2:The novel and KQ companion timeline, or the secondary timeline: since it does not as of yet interfere with the official timeline, it can be added to the official timeline, or left out of it altogether.
Quote3:The Silver Lining timeline. Since it is unofficial I'll label it as a third time line, but in the eyes of most I'm sure it will become an extension of the secondary timeline, and be included in that timeline.
