ElvenQuest is a British radio comedy broadcast on BBC Radio 4.The story follows Sam Porter, a misanthropic fantasy author, who is visited by three strangely-dressed people he believes to be cosplaying fans. However, when they attempt to steal his dog, Amis, in the belief that he is The Chosen One, Sam follows, only to be drawn into the fantasy world of Lower Earth, where Amis is transformed into a human, though keeps his dog-like tendencies. Soon, Sam is dragged along on a quest for the Sword of Asnagar, along with dim elven prince Vidar, beautiful but naive warrior princess Penthiselea, and stubborn dwarf Dean, all the while pursued by Lord Darkness and his servant Kreech.Not to be confused with ElfQuest.
Penthiselea: Each room has had traps and challenges which required the individual skills that we bring to get us through. Sam:Yeah, we know, we were there. Penthiselea: My swordcraft, Amis's stamina, Sam's wit and intelligence, Vidar's..... so, we have four of the five keys needed to open the door in the wall.
Also when the Queen demands a written saga of party's adventures:
Penthiselea: Oh, if only one of us was a professional writer.
We Want Our Jerk Back: When they bring Dean Back from the Dead and take the opportunity to "improve" his personality, they accidentally make him into a simpering coward. In order to change him back, they have to kill him again.
Whole Plot Reference: The fourth series finale has the gang trying to escape from maximum security prison "Trollditz", evading the German-accented guards and planning to dig three tunnels called Tom, Dick and Harry. It's a Running Gag that Sam finds all of this very familiar, but can't put his finger on why. The episode's title? "The Great Escape."
