Frustrated created this little poem about about Connor entering the Dimension of Death in King’s Quest 8.


Through the portal he leaps
Daring, uncaring
Wishing only to rescue his fair maid
From certain disaster

But for a glimpse of her beautiful face
Flesh once more, not stone
Would he face monsters untold
In a land made not for the living

A scraping voice from ahead
A dark creature, beast of shadows
A mystery, a maze
A river of death

Pools of blood everywhere
Fire around every corner
And demons
Demons, o the demons!

Fearfully he strides forward
Takes a mighty swing
With his hefty sword
O lovely lady, o lovely lake

Trapped in the maze of madness
No passage across the watery death
Until through the darkness
Can he find a magic hall
