: I have to agree with you; my first impressions of Dungeon Master
: were not too complimentary. Venger may have been "The
: Force of Evil" (something that he never called himself;
: unlike Skeletor or Mumm-Ra,) but at least he did not kidnap a
: group of children from their world to fight his battles. And
: speaking of children . . . .
I do get the impression that the writers never quite thought out that part of the story. They might have had works like "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" in mind; the difference was that, in the Chronicles of Narnia, the English children visiting Narnia generally embraced their role (except for Eustace at the start of "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader"), seldom or never showed signs of homesickness, and understood what they needed to do.
I wonder whether the redemption of Venger was partly due to Standards & Practices; the only two final ways to deal with him would have been death or reformation, and death wouldn't get past S&P, so reformation it was.
