Revisiting 10305: Lion Knights' Castle
I had my sister's family over including my 8-yo niece who is into Lego. We went downstairs where I have my castle built. I showed her how it comes apart and explained some medieval/fantasy things she didn't know about. All was well and my sister's family left. I proceeded to collect parts and put the castle together.
I noticed some thing. On the back of the instruction book, the white-haired peasant lady looks to be holding a bell. In the instructions to put her together, she's holding a wine goblet. Is this a mistake or is there a "bell" somewhere in the castle?
Next, as I was searching through the instruction booklets, I read this on page 176: "What's this odd letter here on the table, and with Lord Basil's seal on it!". I did some digging around to find out who this Lord Basil is. His name comes from a Lego magazine about the story of Fright Night's story. It mentions that Lord Basil was turned into Bat Lord Basil by Willa the Witch. Lego set 6097 - Night Lord's Castle is the main set for that theme.
I found that interesting! Was this wax-sealed letter from Lord Basil before or after he became the Bat Lord? Also, the queen in 10305 - Lion Knight's Castle appears to be named "Lady of the Brave Lion Knights". Where is that mentioned?
Lastly, after reading so many of the "comments" sprinkled throughout the instructions, I slowly realized that it's a narration. Narrated by who? Later on it is revealed that it is the Wizard!
