QuoteThat Alhazred found a copy of the "Guidebook to the Land of the Green Isles," and that was why he decided to come to this kingdom and take over?", KQ6 Hintbook, pg 74
Quote from: Baggins on July 03, 2010, 10:05:12 PMWell there certainly is no official evidence that the "brotherhood" has witches. Actually there is probably more evidence towards it being chauvenistic mens club. Its a brotherhood (which generally has masculine definition, of "brothers", a fraternity). All three of its known members seem to it fight over the same women. Each wants her for various reasons. Mordack wanted to marry her (and to use her as a scullery maid). Shadrack wanted her dead or alive for his 'peculiar' interests. Alhazred just wanted to marry her, and then kill her. None them seem to show much respect for women.Its strange they only chose to take over and destroy the Green Isles, after Alhazred learned about the islands, from a copy of the Guidebook to the Land of the Green Isles he discovered there. The guidebook influenced his decision to go there according to the KQ6 hintbook.QuoteThat Alhazred foud a copy of the "Guidebook to the Land of the Green Isles," and that was why he decided to come to this kingdom and take over?", KQ6 Hintbook, pg 74 It's also unclear how much was Abdul Alhazred's idea vs that of his peers. They gave him suggestions how to improve his take over, but he seems to act like most of it was his plans.

QuoteAlhazared maintained contact with Shadrack, as referenced by the note found among his belongings in his room in KQ along with a black cloak (which could mean he was a member of the BCS and was serving Shadrack or Mordack, or was an equal of Shadrack or Mordack, or was working independantly and merely keeping the BCS informed of his actions.... again depending on which interpretation you favor).
QuoteSalutations from the Society of the Black Cloak, etc. etc. My long preparations are about to come to fruition.
Quote from: oberonqa on July 03, 2010, 10:59:28 PM--> I would say the BCS are the ones who engineered the three treasures of Daventry being lost, which set the stage for the first game. --> They also engineered Valanice to be locked away in the Quartz Tower in (for reasons unknown.... I never did buy the whole Hagatha being jealous of Valanice's beauty thing).--> Manannon kidnapping Alexander as baby (probably not a big stretch, as Mannanon did kidnap other baby boys prior to Alexander so it probably would not have been difficult for the BCS to... suggest ALexander as a Wizard's Slave).

Quote from: oberonqa on July 04, 2010, 09:59:04 AMI wasn't suggesting the mirror lied... but only showed Graham what he needed to see. It's not called the Mirror of Absolute Truth, after all.I will agree that Hagatha surely must have imprisioned Valanice because of her beauty... but there must be more to it than that... especially if Hagatha is a member of the BCS. Thats what I never bought about her reasoning for imprisioning Valanice... it just doesn't fit within the context of the greater machinations of the BCS.
QuoteI asked Roberta [...], and sorry to admit that she said she didn't remember the Black Cloak Society. It sounds cool. Perhaps she should have taken it more seriously and featured it in other games. With respect to Hagatha [being related to Manannan and Mordack]: Roberta's answer was, "Would you like them to be related?" Then she said, "Nope, Hagatha was her own separate person."- Ken Williams at SierraGamers (6-9-2003) <blockquote>...one final thing: Hagatha was never part in any discussion of a Black Cloak Society.- Roberta Williams at SierraGamers (6-9-2003)
Quote"The chronicles of Daventry are retold, these centuries later, as the tales of King's Quest."-Roberta Williams, InterAction (Fall 1992)
Quoteher first games were Mystery House and Wizard and the Princess... KQ1 was her third game
QuoteAnd given that Roberta was King's Quest... she always had a hand in it. She may have allowed other designers like Jane and Lorelli greater freedom of expression when it came to their designs, but she maintained control over what a King's Quest game was and what a King's Quest game was not.
QuoteRoberta had to sign off on. Peter was not given carte blanche when it came to King's Quest. No one was except for Roberta. Now does that mean that because the three are related and Roberta had to have signed off on that idea...
