QuoteBut of what castle? That's what gets me about the Companion's added storyline about Valanice's parents...there's NO government to be seen at all in KQ2. There are very few people living there, and we see the whole island. The only castle is Dracula's, and the rest of the people are scattered loosely around the place
QuoteThe architecture of the castle wouldn't allow a garden inside the high castle walls anyway.
Quote from: Baggins on September 29, 2010, 05:28:24 PMWell to be fair that door actually just lead directly into the kitchen in KQ6.
Quote from: Baggins on September 29, 2010, 05:28:24 PMUmm, the Companion actually explains it pretty well... that the main population center of the kingdom is east of the mountain range (you know that mountain range that's a barrier to the east?). You don't visit her home realm in Kolyma. You only visit a remote outer edge of the kingdom. The companion's has the whole angle covered... Her home was in a population center in the region that you conveniently cannot visit in the game. So no contradictions.In addition its explained that western region is covered in the magical law of "containment" that prevents travel to the north or south of the island. A person just wraps, i.e. teleported back to where they started from if they continue in one direction.
QuoteIt wasn't proper that Graham wed far away from his own land, out of sight of his own subjects.
QuoteAfter returning to Daventry, in a beautiful wedding ceremony, Valanice became King Graham's wife, and Queen of Daventry.
QuoteBy the same logic Graham must have always slept in his throne room since there are no other visible access points to Castle Daventry in KQ 1-3. I guess Rosella steps through a wall when she walks south to Graham's bed chamber at the end of KQ4 because I couldn't walk there in previous installments when I had full control of Graham.
Quotean entire back story for Valanice that was never mentioned in the game that even in some ways contradicts the original game manual which by your logic should be gospel because it came first and was written by the original creator,
QuoteThis is the maiden Valanice. She is from the kingdom of Kolyma, and is known for her goodness no less than her beauty
QuoteKing Graham, our most wise and beloved monarch, took to wife a maiden of the tropical land of Kolyma. Valanice is her name, and her beauty, wisdom and goodness are beyond compare.
Quote from: Baggins on September 30, 2010, 08:08:52 AMYou moved the kitchen, I get that... But don't try to rewrite KQ6's intent... Because it was very specific. So much so that KQ6 Hint book, and King's Quest Companion, etc, explicitly state that room as a kitchen. Its very clear what the designers were going for at the time KQ6 was made.
QuoteIf we're talking about rewriting the intention of the original series creators, I would say that TSL goes A LOT further than just moving around an insignificant kitchen...
Quotet's in the Companion that the story of Valanice being a princess comes up, isn't it? Whereas in the game she's just "the maiden Valanice." I think that's what Rich was referring to; also that the castle, etc, she's from aren't in the game KQ2 at all, and only in the companion. (Not a contradiction, no, but I think you get what I mean.)In any case, we have said our primary canon that we went by (aside from a few architectural issues...) is what was shown in the games themselves
Quotene, it's a fantasy world...it's always a kingdom!
QuoteTwo, there *was* a castle, it was just full of undead people. It did leave one wondering just where she was kidnapped from, though..
Quotefirst called Edgar a fisherman's son
QuoteCompanion seems to have a lot of things to say about KQ7 that try to say things from it aren't true and aren't what really happened.
Quote from: KatieHal on September 30, 2010, 10:11:54 AMWhat I'm saying is in terms of adhering to canon, we concerned ourselves with the primary sources which are also the ones most fans know--the games themselves.
Quote from: KatieHal on September 30, 2010, 10:11:54 AMLOL, then most fanfiction is the lowest form of fanfiction, since that's almost exclusively what it does as a rule!
Quote from: Lambonius on September 30, 2010, 10:18:53 AMDoes that also include the printed manuals, which in the cases of games like KQ3 and 6 were an indispensable part of the experience?
