Quest for the Throne - King's Quest IV - Session 1.5
The Quest goes on! Tonight, we continue King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella.
Immediately following the events of King's Quest III — the return of long lost Prince Alexander and the rescue of Princess Rosella — King Graham suffers a heart attack. Though not dead, he's fading fast. Unable to bear the sight, Rosella flees her father's chambers to be by herself in the throne room. While there, the fairy Genesta contacts her through the magic mirror, offering a cure for her father if she'll help her in return. Seeing little other hope, Rosella accepts Genesta's offer, and is transported to the land of Tamir.
Last time on Quest for the Throne, it didn't take us long to finish King's Quest III, and so we began The Perils of Rosella. The land of Tamir, like much of the world of King's Quest, is full of fairy tales and enchantment. Though captured by the evil fairy Lolotte, her son is quite taken with Rosella, allowing us to avoid death and work our way closer to her to take back Genesta's talisman. Lolotte puts us to task after task, however, with no end in sight.
Will we be able to take back the talisman, so Genesta can return Rosella to Daventry? Will we be able to find the magical fruit that will restore King Graham to health? How much more stuff will we have to do to accomplish either of those things? Tune in tonight at 9pm ET and find out!
