**The island is a big enough place that Alexander has not seen all of it. It even has mountain range seen on the map that you never visit. They simply returned to their homes or went somewhere on the island that Alexander didn't go to.

** He probably thought it better to keep it in Daventry, in case the kingdom were invaded during his absence. Also, if he took the shield with him and worst came to worst, it would have been lost for his kingdom forever. (Sure, no enemies would have been able to kill him, but there is such a thing as falling off cliffs, treacherous swamps, etc.)

Added DiffLines:

**The intro and manual mentions the doctors, healers,etc checked him and couldn't find a way to cure him. Some diseases are not curable in a medieval setting, even with magic. Much of material related to KQ4 and Companions suggests either his heart was weakened naturally or do to extreme emotional and stress. The KQ8 manual does mention possibly magical spell though.

**LOl, well it wasn't touching him directly. Remmeber he can grab you with the cross, and then runs once he brushes against it' going after your neck.

** He has no reason to keep out the dead. Presumably everyone's who's dead gets a ticket, and those without them are clearly still alive, so the gatekeeper is there to keep out the living, to whom the sword is a threat.

** You can take the dough out of your ears manually in the original AGI version of KQ3, upon which it crumbles and is lost forever. I assume Alex decided at some point that keeping magical dough with bits of hair sticking out of it in your ears for years on end wasn't very hygienic and wouldn't make him look very good with the ladies, so he took it out at some point.



** Perhaps he has some spell that protects him from physical harm.

** You can type "kill wizard" near him while he's sleeping in his bed in the actual game and it blatantly states that he's too powerful for you and you'd merely end up getting yourself killed.

* Manannan paranoid of Alexander casting spells to kill him, kills him if he is carrying anything dangerous. Yet he ignores the butcher knife. Seriously? He never considered Alexander stabbing him in his sleep?

** Maybe the Inkeeper's two cronies put it on the wrong side because of their stupidty.

* I'm not going to question how Dracula survived to be at your wedding at the end of KQ2, or why he was even invited. But rather, how did he even get into the Church? A simple cross repels him, so shouldn't he be writhing in burning agony from the pure holiness while he's sitting there?

* In Kings Quest 6, how DID Alexander canonly solve the cliffs of logic, and labyrinth puzzles? Unlike the player, he had no guidebook. All he said was "I have a clear mind" though that doesn't explain how he deciphered the ancient symbols. Though there was mention of a "Prophecy" perhaps he just [[NoPunIntended winged it]] and succeeded because he's the chosen one?

** Seeing as the island is based off of Wonderland. [[note]] Though the only characters that appear from the books are the Red and White queens, and the Drink Me potion which doesn't even shrink you when you drink it, so it's really just the style they took inspiration from [[/note]] They probably only exist when they need to. Which happened OFTEN in the Alice books, as characters and even locations would appear and vanish like crazy. And seeing as there is no logic in Wonderland, really should we even question anything?
