Castle Quest by Daniel Williamson (Creator)

CASTLE QUEST is a new British 25-minute Fantasy Adventure gameshow in the tradition of KNIGHTMARE that is filmed in front of a blue screen. The GameMaster chooses a team of three contestants from ages 16 - 19 to take part. In CASTLE QUEST, The contestants are the advisors of a Barbarian Warrior named Mergon. Mergon is sent into CASTLE QUEST, a black fortress. Mergon will be unable to see what is in front of him since the entire castle is completley pitch-black. Mergon's only weapons is a golden-sword and a magic shield which allow the 3 advisors to observe and advise Mergon (Only the advisors can see what is in front of Mergon). In each game, Mergon will sent into Castle Quest on various quests (The Sword of Power, The Silver Chair or The Great Key). But many dangers lie within Castle Quest, as Castle Quest's evil master, the dark Lord Faramas and his bumbling one-eyed henchman, Maca, sends Farama's army of Catmen, vicious humanoid cats to try and stop Mergon from completing the quest, and some rooms inside Castle Quest are filled with deathtraps and dark forces and the undead. Mergon must use his brain and use his golden sword which will turn the catmen and those who stand in his way into ashes. But Mergon is never alone in his quests and along the way, Mergon will encounter friends, allies or fiends who will either help or hinder Mergon in his Quests, among them: The Female Barbarian Warrior Arbaria, the wizard Moonwall, the dwarf Gumni, the archer Woodbeard, Faramas's cunning spy, Wen Wormhook, the undead skeleton warrior Bones, the evil sorcerer Darkstar, the witch Teletara and the thief Ardorn. But Mergon must be aware, he only got 6 lifeforce, if he is fails to solve a puzzle, if he is wounded, he will lose a lifeforce and must use his magic medallion to heal him (He can only use his medallion 5 times and must find other objects within Castle Quest to keep up his lifeforce). If Mergon solves a puzzle and manages to get past any dangerous obstacle, he will be given a key that will allow him to enter the next room inside the castle. If Mergon looses all 6 of his lifeforce, the game is over and a new team will take part. If Mergon completes the quest, a portal will be activated and allow Mergon to escape from Castle Quest. Where the god, The White Guardian will give the three contestants their prize and the three contestants will be made honored champions in the Castle Quest hall of fame. Sometimes when they win, Faramas interfears with the portal and will not allow Mergon to escape and The GameMaster will send his the magic giant hawk Rayhawk to rescue Mergon from Castle Quest. But if Mergon fails and looses all 6 of his lifeforce, the three contestants will vanish and Mergon turns into a skeleton and his bones and his skull vanishes and will reappear at the beginning of the next quest to meet the new team, with no memory of the quest as if it never happened. At the end of each episode, if Mergon and the contestants are still doing the quest, they will be turned into stone statues and will be revived in the next episode, the following week, and the quest will re-commence…
