So yeah, before I get much further in hacking a game into Electric Knights: The RPG, I should probably explain just what Electric Knights is. And what better way than to post an explanation from the FAQ for the show? (Will not be posting the whole FAQ. It is massive.)
1: What is Electric Knights?
“Electric Knights” is an animated series focusing on the adventures of a group of unlikely warriors fighting to save the world from extra-dimensional ‘beastlings’ bent on wreaking havoc with our reality. Or at least, that’s the way that things are originally presented. The show quickly becomes more complex, introducing a hefty dose of Arthurian mythology, along with an amazingly tangled set of character motivations. Why is Thorn alternately working for and against them? How was Elaine’s missing husband able to create a sword that she could call out of nothing? Why does Bunny, who’s supposedly a hologram, get hurt with dismaying frequency? The continuity is tight and almost compulsively self-contained, constantly looping back to foreshadow itself. It is, in short, the sort of series that’s very easy to get lost in.
Both seasons of the show were characterized by excellent direction and an obviously tight-knit writing staff that kept characters remarkably true from episode to episode. Plots were not always resolved immediately, but very little ever seemed to be forgotten. “Electric Knights” ran for two seasons, from 1994-1996, and was taken off the air immediately after the conclusion of the second season, which ended with an unfortunately unresolved cliffhanger.
This is of course, all a lie. There was no show. We made it up. But we -did- write scripts for it, and write new episodes from a ‘brand new third season’ to foreshadow game plots and in short, we were -completely insane-.
And I am pretty sure that ever so often someone finds the FAQ from where it used to hide out and writes a post on Yahoo answers or something asking ‘Hey has anyone heard of this?’
So why do this now?
Because I thought it would be entertaining, and…I mentioned the insane part, right?
I believe in Bunny Batzri.
Does she believe in you?
